“Well, I think one of the biggest unspoken, but very spoken realities, is how when you go see this movie there’s somebody on camera that looks like you. There’s somebody that you can identify with. It’s a multiethnic experience. We pride ourselves on that. It’s been a part of the foundation of what the franchise.”— Tyrese Gibson on why the Fast and the Furious series is such a hit

“You know how they have fan made kind of things online? A fan did this image of me as the Green Lantern and I was like ‘Woah, that looks cool,’ and i posted it on my Instagram and it just went crazy. Over 1500 sites and it was just all of this buzz, so I was like ‘You know what? I might as well run with this thing,’ and I did. Pissed the people off a little bit at Warner Brothers because they thought that I had convinced the world that I landed the role, which I didn’t. — Tyrese Gibson on possibly playing the Green Lantern

“‘The Black Book’ is inspired by ‘The Notebook,’ one of my favorite romantic movies ever. So there’s this old woman who has alzheimer’s and dementia and her husband shows up everyday to read to her. What we did was I had an older version of me and then I had an older version of this woman named V Bozeman, who’s another singer, and in between three music videos, we cut back to the older version of me and V. Bozeman and I’m there reading to her trying to get her to remember the life that we have. And in between that, we cut to music videos instead of it being acting scenes.”— Tyrese Gibson on ‘The Black Notebook’

“I’ve been very vocal about kind of these practices that’s in mainstream radio versus urban radio, which is if Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, or Robin Thicke were to sing R&B live specifically, they get played on all formats of radio. Now, as we know, as artists, we’re very vulnerable. If you don’t play my music on your station, then you can’t expect anybody to download, buy, stream, or run to the store and buy an album that they don’t know exists. So basically, when it comes to R&B soul, the sales have been very limited for a lot of us as artists. Has nothing to do with black, but as black artists, black r&b soul artists, we’re specifically being played on urban radio only.” — Tyrese Gibson on mainstream radio only playing white R&B singers

“I don’t like him. I think he’s pretty disgusting. I just think he has mastered the art of winning battles and losing wars. So, everything is a gimmick. Everything are lies. Everything is about antics and buffoonery and making fun of people and this is probably the most narcissistic presidential campaign I’ve ever witnessed in my life.” — Tyrese Gibson on Donald Trump
