The kind of classic pose of a female model is to look kind of sexy and a bit annoyed.
Once you become poor, tired and time-constrained, you become a much better human being.
If you read all your history books, there are no women in them.
I can’t think of anything I hate more than a former punk – they are the most self-righteous people in the world.
I think that instead of feminism being a political thing, it should be an act of creativity. It’s more of a rock n’ roll thing.
Flyaway, problem hair is the enemy of feminism, and was probably invented by the Man to crush Susan Sontag.
You can crush any woman by suggesting that she’s fat, not even saying the word ‘fat’ but just suggesting she’s fat.
I’m so glad I spent 10 years being sad and lonely.
If you can find a frock you look nice in and can run up three flights of stairs, you’re not fat.
I am not good at small talk. I will hide in a cupboard to avoid chitty-chat.
I’m quite British; I’ve got big, flat feet, and I can’t wear heels. I’ve got very, very pale Celtic skin, so my legs are always a frightening blue color. So when you take out clothes that reveal your legs, shoes that have any kind of heel, no shop will actually take my money.
What is feminism? Simply the belief that women should be as free as men, however nuts, dim, deluded, badly dressed, fat, receding, lazy, and smug they might be.
One of the great things about being a writer/journalist is that my boss loves me to go out and do features on being someone else. I did a feature on Kate Middleton, where I went to an incredible fancy state home in the countryside, put on a wedding dress and posed for engagement pictures with a fake Prince William.
When my children say, ‘In the future, Mummy, will things get better or worse for humanity?’ I say: ‘Who knows, since Amy Winehouse died. It’s all in the air now. Eat your broccoli.’
My core belief is that if you’re complaining about something for more than three minutes, two minutes ago you should have done something about it.
