In an interview with Into The Gloss, she famously claimed that she eats clay, washes her hair once a month, and likes to sunbathe her vagina.[1] According to InStyle, she also roasts beets to use as lip stain and wears spirulina, a type of algae, as eyeshadow.[2]

More recently, when asked to name her favourite beauty product, her answer was: “Just happiness, man!” (Best response ever.)
