“Another cause I feel equally as passionate about is body image. I recognize that I am part of an art form that at its best inspires and celebrates the tragedies and triumphs of our humanity, but at it’s worst is a machine to make people feel like they need and want more and more to be happy. I suppose I am talking about art vs. commerciality and there is a huge discussion to be made about whether the two can ever be exclusive, but the struggle that I have everyday is knowing that while I can be an inspiration to a lot of girls, I can also make them feel more and more distant from themselves. I sit in a make up chair for 2 hours a day so I can look as good as possible for my show, but that also creates a false image for viewers to expect of themselves. I want to find a way to help girls love their bodies, and love themselves for who they are, not what some false image on the television or the cover of a magazine is telling them they should be because guess what….not even those girls look like that. So many of us are at war with ourselves and we must end it.”
