“I had people telling me ‘You need to look beautiful and clean’. So naturally I took all my makeup off, put a baseball hat and a flannel. I was, in my own way, saying ‘I’ll show you what talent is’. I dont need all these clothes. I mean, I love my clothes. I put them on. But you’re not tell me when to wear them. Or how to wear them.”
