“There is this cultural question in our society about what people should look like. And women in our culture are TOLD what they should look like by the cosmetic companies, the clothing companies, the diet companies - people wanna sell you something. “Take these pills, buy these clothes, take this exercise program. Buy it from us and you will look like how you’re SUPPOSED to look.” Well what are you supposed to look like? You’re supposed to look like who you are! And people have been taught to chase this ‘dream’ by paying something to somebody to achieve that sort of look. So that’s what it was all about; I thought it was very interesting to raise a conversation about this subject.”
