On feminism and double standards…
TG: I read that you consider yourself a feminist. What does that mean to you?
MC: I’m just about equality, period. It’s not like, I’m a woman, women should be in charge! I just want there to be equality for everybody.
TG: Right! And that’s what feminism is.
MC: I still don’t think we’re there 100 percent. I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all fucking day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model bitches around me, I’m degrading women? I’m a woman—I should be able to have girls around me! But I’m part of the evolution of that. I hope.

Zooey Deschanel on how growing up in Hollywood affected her:
“Definitely none of the kids I grew up with would have ever thought, Zooey will be on television and have her own show. I wasn’t the world’s most popular child, which gave me built-in tenacity. Nothing has ever come easy for me, and I think that’s a really good thing. I learned at an early age that you have to work hard for what you get.”
Joan on ELLE – Top model Joan Smalls covers the January issue of ELLE US. shining in a look from Givenchy’s spring-summer 2014 collection. Despite being one of the leading faces in fashion and a spokesperson for Estee Lauder, Joan admits that some in the industry don’t embrace diversity when it comes to models. “People hide behind the word aesthetic. They say, ‘Well, it’s just that designer’s aesthetic.’ But when you see 18 seasons in a row and not one single model outside a certain skin color…? There are people in the industry who are advocates, who support diversity. And there are people who do not. I don’t get it. Beauty is universal. These doors have to open,” the model tells ELLE.
