On Nudity...

Girl A: I don’t know why everyone has so many hang-ups about being naked. 
Girl B: Boarding schools, that's why.
Girl A: Everyone was fiiiiine with nudity at my school. This one time, we decided to show each other a boob to see if they were all the same.

t was just a fun girlie evening showing each other one boob, okay?! 

On body diversity Barbie

The Australian Music Prize
