Hey, it's [unknown] and you're watching MarieClaire.com. Well, I thought I was too dirty to stay at Marie Claire. [unknown]. Alright. Well, I can do that. Try to just sit still for a minute and just breathe, just relax and not go right into the rat race 'cause I'm inclined to normally do that. Okay, to be honest with you, the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning is did I miss Judge Mathis or did I not? Can I still catch the People's Court? [unknown] truth. I can't go to bed unless I've said my prayers. Judge Mathis from People's Court, [unknown]. My style icon would probably be Iman. You know, she's just someone who I look at on magazines, you know, and movies since I was a kid. And she's just always maintained her, you know, humility, her glamour. She's always giving back. She married my favorite. She married David Bowie for God's sakes, who I love. I think one of my favorite designers is Donna Karan. I think she's-- I think she's great. I think she knows a woman's body. She knows how to put up flattering clothing but edgy at the same time and comfortable. And I've always managed somehow to be able to buy Donna Karan stuff for myself and for my mom so we both look stylish, you know, but different which is cool. One word description of my style would have to be mindful. Purple Rain is always a good one, yeah. I'd probably say Purple Rain. Anything by Bon Jovi. [unknown]. I would definitely wanna fly 'cause then I wouldn't have to deal with going through airport security. I could just, you know, throw my bags in a big satchel and hit it to the west coast, to Paris, to Thailand, wherever I feel like flying to.
