A street clown? A juggler? That would be cool. I’d probably go to school. I’d travel. I’d go wandering and get lost for a minute, like Jack Kerouac. And then afterwards, when I realized it was all vacuous and vapid and meant nothing to me, I’d probably take up photography
I think that the way woman and men relate to each other is changing and I like it. Also, I think that women should lead the world. Men are idiots, including me. Women can understand what’s going on better and that’s why they are more sensitive than men. At least in my personal experience. Men are always focused on the competition, as an obsession. But I think that we could learn a lot from women [especially if we] managed problems from a feminine point of view.

I’ve gone through my whole life caring deeply what people think of me.
If I watch myself, then I suddenly have a bunch of things that I’m scared to do. It just upsets me. I’ve stopped reading reviews, as well. If one is negative, you hold on to that. It was killing me. It was holding me back from being creative and being free…The first thing that was written was “What’s up with this kid’s eyebrows? He looks like a friggin’ Neanderthal.”
I just think I’ve always been sensitive and had difficulty containing my feelings, and I’ve always searched for outlets for that, because otherwise those feelings come out in chaotic ways that aren’t always great.

In secondary school I was floating - I wasn’t passionate about anything. I did a little sport, but it was pretty joyless because the competitiveness was too much to bear.
I don’t like elitism. I like open access to whoever is nice and to whoever would like to come and join. There might be a screening process of a nice test. Like going, “Oh, are you nice?” And if you say ‘yes’ then you have to prove that you’re nice somehow with some subconscious hypnosis test or something like that.
But once you get inside, there’d probably be a lot of bounce houses and a foam pit and a skateboard ramp going into the foam pit and a lot of things that you could hurt yourself on. But you’d have to sign a waiver of course before you came in to make sure that we weren’t liable. There’d be probably a simulation of what it would be like to sit and lay and run through clouds. I’d hire a great visual artist to do that. I’d create a whole warehouse of the world in some way.”
