During an interview with True Exclusives, she was asked about the requirements it takes be considered an” icon”. Warwick admits that she can’t detail exact qualifications, but can tell when someone has indeed reached that status.
“I don’t know,” she responds, “I just know when that status is reached, [we know] who they are…I wish I had the answer. I know it takes more than a hit record. I know that. There are many who never had a hit record who we know that are icons. Lena Horne, for one.”
She does, however, believe that both Mary J. Blige and Brandy are well on their way to becoming iconic. Though she denies Carey and Braxton’s status as “icons”, she compliments their talents and success.
