On knowing Michael Jackson:
'It was magical for me. I was like "oh yeah, he has the rollercoaster! And I can sing for him because nobody else wants to listen to me! He was one of the only people that treated me like there wasn't something wrong with me. I was so shy and felt like an outsider, and he saw something in me that other people couldn't.'
On the modeling world:
'I feel like such a toad next to some of the [other models], it gives you a complex after a while. And I also feel like I'm the oldest person in the room. I think a lot of models are like "F**k you! I have to go to 20 castings!" and then I walk in like some normie and they're like, "Why are you here?". On one shoot, a model handed me her shoes becasue she thought I was an intern or something... it was actually really funny."
On her relationship with DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith:
'We've dated a long time, we're very much a unit. I mean, we definitely, like, clash sometimes, but as soon as we met we were pretty much together instantly.'
On not looking overly groomed:
'[People see me as this] grungy street urchin, I guess. They think I'm this real paaaarty girl because I normally look really sloppy. Just because I don't always have someone doing my make-up and hair, and picking my outfit every time I leave the house. I guess I just don't care enough to do that.'
