During a 2018 interview, the “No Excuses” singer told Today host Hoda Kotb that her father is her “guy” and she continues to be “inspired by him.”

“Anytime I complain about anything, he’s like, ‘Life will get better if you let it,’ ” she said. “Sometimes in life you can’t control what happens—most of the time you can’t control what happens, but you can control how you look at it and how you can stay positive about it or find the good in it.”
