“I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

“I have never been insecure, ever, about how I look, about what I want to do with myself. My mum told me to only ever do things for myself, not for others.”

“I think it’s really important you don’t think you’re great. Because once you get to that point, you just f*** everything up. You think that everyone’s going to think you’re great all the time, and that’s rubbish.”

“There’s only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else? Why would you want to have the same hairstyle as everyone else and the same opinions as everybody else?”

“I’ve never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like, ‘I need to look like that to be a success.’”

“No matter what you look like, the key is to, first of all, be happy with yourself. And then, you know, if you want to try to improve things that you don’t like about yourself, then do it after you appreciate yourself.”
