I am equal to everything and anything that is around me. Therefore I must deal with it with so much respect and I must get that respect back. And I’m not going to explain the obvious. And I’m not here to win, I’m here to exist.
I grew up on a really small island and I didn’t have a lot of access to fashion but as far as I could remember fashion has always been my defense mechanism. [CFDA Fashion Icon speech]
It reminds me of where I started, where I came from. It has been an incredible journey but I can’t believe that this is where we are now. From being a little island girl on a beach in flip flops or bare foot to like literally having fun in the most.. I mean I get to wear a lot of expensive clothing, a lot of nice gowns and stuff like that and I really appreciate it. Fashion has just been fun, it’s every little girl’s dream to dress up. [on winning CFDA Fashion Icon Award]
You know, the Andy I know is madly in love with Nate. Is always five minutes early and thinks, I don’t know, Club Monoco is couture. For the last 16 years, I’ve known everything about that Andy, but this person? This glamazon who skulks around in corners with some random hot fashion guy? I don’t get her.
The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.
Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
There’s no way that Michael Jackson or whoever Jackson should have a million thousand droople billion dollars and then there’s people starving. There’s no way! There’s no way that these people should own planes and there people don’t have houses, apartments, shacks, drawers, pants! I know you’re rich. I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house? You only need ONE house. And if you only got two kids, can you just keep it to two rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms and you know there’s somebody with no room?! It just don’t make sense to me. It don’t.
I never want to change so much that people can’t recognize me.
No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.
I got this Jesus tattoo on my wrist when I was 18 because I know that it’s always going to be a part of me. When I’m playing, it’s staring right back at me saying ‘Remember where you came from.’
