I'm a Christian girl. I pray every night and before meals and before I go on stage not to fall.
I was at Stella McCartney's show, and I'm dying to go to the bathroom, and so I went up to this guy and asked: ' Do you work here ? Do you know where the bathroom is ?' I didn't know it was Paul McCartney ! I mean, I know who Paul McCartney is but I didn't know what he looked like.
I want to do different things in my life, not just modeling. I would love to design for a big fashion house, like Pharrell did for Louis Vuitton. Stop giving all the opportunities to celebrities! I'm in the fashion industry, I have some great ideas and I'd like to share them.
