My kitchen’s pink, like skin-tone pink, and I lowered my spice rack so it’s eye level – it’s true! – and my phone, so I can reach it when I fall, it’s right there.

But I love how people who are musical, they know how to dress.

I stayed in New York City for the first time, I’d always wanted to do that.

I hate playing pretty or sane people. Most people are not attractive or all there.

Gay guys know how to craft, and they craft really well. Straight guys, forget it.

When I’m by myself, I never play music. I have a lot of it, for a girl, but I don’t listen to it a lot. I hate picking music out; I’m not good at it.
