Music is what turns me on!
From the beginning, I hated being photographed. For me, it was just an assumed role, and in the end, I didn't know who I really was as a person. Everybody was saying to me, 'Hi, you're fantastic.' But inside, I felt worse from day to day.
My job distracted me from my worries. It enabled me not to be myself, to pretend I was someone else. But when my energy was no longer directed towards this one goal to meet the anguish caught up with me.
