BALMAIN SPRING 2014
On social media:
“I think with, like, Instagram, Twitter, whatever, everyone is a paparazzi now. How scary is that? Like, you’re never safe. Even ordinary people just think they can, like, talk about you like they know you. Especially because I grew up in it, and like you grew up in it, too, there’s a sense of entitlement.”
On why she likes being naked:
"We never were inside, and we never wore shoes. I think it’s why I like wearing no clothes so much and I’m always naked.”
On her parents:
“I never had, like, a nanny that took care of me. My mom always fed me breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My dad, like, he’s the most trusting human in the world. He trusts everybody, basically, until they fuck him over. And my mom, too, holds no grudges. She’s really like it’s the—you know, shame on—, a rare occurrence. What is it? ‘Shame on me’?…or whatever.”
On the criticism about her:
“I don’t give a shit. I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts. You know, it’s like, I’m not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have. I have a hard time listening. That goes for both criticism and other people. I have a lot of people that I could call and hang out with, but I have very few friends, if that makes any sense. Like, I just don’t tell a lot of people anything. Everyone’s always like, ‘You’re so sketch.’ ”
