Every bit of me is devoted to love and art. And I aspire to try to be a teacher to my young fans who feel just like I felt when I was younger. I just felt like a freak. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m trying to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world.
You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.
And now, I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.
You laugh at me because I’m different. I laugh at you because you’re all the same.
