As you become confident in your style, do you feel better about yourself?
Absolutely. I feel incredibly handsome! I feel good. I feel on top of my world right now. It’s a common perception, and I don’t know where it comes from, that because you’re big, you don’t think you look good. That’s so weird to me! I don’t know when all that started. I think bigger people, men and women, don’t feel like they CAN look good, so they don’t actively participate in life in that way. It’s a weird cycle of assuming that because you’re big, you can’t look good, and because I’m big, I don’t look good and I won’t ever look good, so why get into it? It’s just passive. Get out there and be somebody! Motion creates emotion.
