Your looks are so extreme. Is this a reaction to something? Are you questioning or altering the status quo of women’s style? – Asked by Mario Testino, London.

June 8, 2010

Yes. Yes I am. I am a feminist. I reject wholeheartedly the way we are taught to perceive women. The beauty of women, how a woman should act or behave. Women are strong and fragile. Women are beautiful and ugly. We are soft spoken and loud, all at once. There is something mind-controlling about the way we’re taught to view women. My work, both visually and musically, is a rejection of all those things. And most importantly a quest. It’s exciting because all avant-garde clothing and music and lyrics that at one time were considered shocking or unacceptable are now trendy. Perhaps we can make women’s rights trendy. Strength, feminism, security, the wisdom of the woman. Let’s make that trendy.

    Ich finde es ja immer bedenklich, wenn Leute ihre weitgehend narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstörung und die damit verbundenen Konsequenzen als Feminismus verkaufen.

    ihre narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstörung unter dem Deckmantel eines vermeintlichen Feminismuses ausleben.
