I can’t stand people who are, like, eating a bucket of Haagen-Dazs ice cream and they are like: ‘I’m so fat.’ And like, they won’t work out, they won’t change their diet, they won’t drink more water, they won’t whatever, but they’re complaining, complaining, complaining. I’m like, well, you’re always going to be in this victimized state because you’re literally not doing any… you’re not being self-aware. You’re not even looking at your own reflection saying: ‘Ok, what can I do to change things about myself?’ It’s everybody else’s fault.
