"It just kills me when these girls look at magazines and wish they could look like that. I try to tell them, 'Nobody looks like that. Everything's airbrushed. My pictures are airbrushed. You should see me without makeup. Everything is lighting and makeup and hair. You would probably look way better than me if you were able to have this.' I wish every girl could experience that.
I know I play into that image out there, but I try to say it is a fantasy. I look at my own pictures and wish I could look like that. There are probably five people in this whole entire world who actually look like that. And it's none of the people you're thinking it is. I try to say, 'Beauty is great; take care of yourself. But use your brains to stay in school, and try to further yourself not just on your looks. You have to believe in yourself.'"
