Have you been wearing your hair back more now?

I've been wearing it up. I've worn it up during New York Fashion Week. I wear it up in Paris a lot.

You've been rocking the hats too.

Yeah, that's sort of when you just can't deal. I sort of love them because in a hat you can disappear.

In this episode we see you deal with tabloid gossip. How do you handle negative comments about your weight?

That's unfortunately a part of my life that resurfaces once and awhile. You know it doesn't get easier. You don't want to let it get to you. You don't want to let in control how you think. I get to the point where I really don't want drama and I really don't want scandal, and it's like why give anyone fuel for the fire? Why feed into it? It's a constant battle.

Watching you change your outfit was upsetting.

Yeah, and everything I own, because I'm built a little bit more like a boy. So I don't generally wear things that... I'm claustrophobic. So I don't love things that are super high on my back. And then all of a sudden you find that all these things in your closet are things that are going to cause drama. And you don't want to have that.

Has it affected how you shop for yourself?

Yeah, a little bit, for sure.

Besides gossip about weight, what's the craziest thing you've ever read about yourself?

Way too many to name. And none of it is true. So it makes it that much more frustrating. I think when you know yourself so well and the people in your life so well, you just say oh my god, this is so not even close to true that it makes it that much harder.

Can you almost laugh at it now?

I do and I don't. I do in the sense that it's so ridiculous. But I don't in the sense that it still hurts.
