I see what happens when one gets very attached to material things. That's just not what my life is.
If I want to be alone, some place I can write, I can read, I can pray, I can cry, I can do whatever I want - I go to the bathroom.
I'm not ashamed of what I am and that I have curves and that I'm thick. I like my body.
I'm a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that's not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiselled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.
Some of the greatest artists did their best work when they got political.
