The `Your Love` rapper - who is well known for her outrageous dress sense - was taught pre-marital sex was bad as a youngster and was concerned after she had her first sexual encounter she would end up going to hell.
She said: "When I was younger, I felt like I had been taught that pre-marital sex was bad, and so I always felt like if I had pre-marital sex I would go to hell. So when I did, I really felt like, erm...
"I suppressed that a lot. So I really went through years of trying to make myself feel comfortable. Like, `OK, I`m not going to hell.`
"But it was scary at that time I was younger, and you know that`s all I`d been taught. So I spent a lot of time beating myself up."
However, her background has to led her now becoming a strong character, something she feels she was born with.
The 26-year-old star added to NME magazine: "I think people are born with star power. I do think that there is something inside of people that when they`re born they`re ambitious.
"I feel like I was going to win, whatever I have to go through. I`m not gonna let up on it."
