It’s like a give or take because if I got abs, it’s like you have to have abs or boobs. You have to pick. There’s a reason why there’s no titties in the Olympics.
C’mon, admit it. You look good, girl.
I look at myself and try and be like, ‘looking awesome.’ People think of it as a bad things like, how arrogant are you? And oh my god, you’re such a terrible person. Why? Because I think I look good? Why is that a bad thing?
Those extra pounds make for a good ass.
When I’m at my heaviest, that’s when my butt looks great. So I’m like great butt day. And if I’m really skinny I’m like good ab day.
Everything about your body is badass.

Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as f*ck because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose because I’m not a do nothing b*tch.
Own up to your bod and help women do the same.

Somebody said something really rude to me, so I came into the shoot purposely way heavier. The campaign ended up being amazing, even though I was heavier just to make it a point.
