"I have no idea where this guy got off thinking it was acceptable devoting one paragraph to my politics and three to my appearance."
This video is just a hit parade of quotable sound bites. Her stories of growing up as “the smart one” (3:00), telling off a music critic, struggling with major body image issues (5:15), and learning to take up space as a tall, emotional, complex woman are so, so great. Beauty, honesty, and wisdom abound — just press play!
Things that really resonated with me:
"I’m literally the most sensitive person I have ever known. I’m like a flower that wilts if you look at it wrong! I cry constantly."
“I was always the character actress. I’ve grown up my whole life playing second fiddle to the pretty girl. And it took a really long time for me to realize that it’s okay to be who I am, and that in somebody’s eyes, I might be the pretty girl.”
“And there was a period a couple of years ago where I honestly felt like unless I got my body together, I would never be successful.”
wow just about covers it
