I stay pretty naive. I feel sometimes like I’m a dog who got in trouble, and two seconds later you can be like, “Hey come here!” And I’ll be like, “Oh great! We’re friends again?” When I start to be savvy, then they’ve gotten me. I would venture to say that I’m more courageous than the ones who are savvy, and stronger than them, too, because I don’t need to protect myself. I can say personal things. The things that are hard for me in my life don’t become harder because somebody else knows about them.
