Fashion and mirrors and Texan hot springs. These are a few of my favorite things. As much as I love this photo and @Prada’s installation in the middle of the desert, it would be remiss not to bring up the fact that sadly they have refused to go fur free, while so many others (including recently Chanel) have done so. Fashion has got to get out of the dark ages. To that end I won’t be buying or wearing any Prada products till that fact changes. (Thank you again @avogat0 for the gentle reminder.)

Hey @eddiearrazola - you taught me how to kick but you obviously also taught @travisvanwinkle how to defend himself... he broke my toe shooting this scene. Next time I’ll break a bigger bone on him. 🤪🤓🙈🥳🥊🤕🙏🏼
Monday. November 26th. 2018. When I hear people say “they shouldn’t have come here” I think they don’t quite understand international human rights law. People have right to seek asylum. It is LEGAL. What people should be saying is “the government knew they were coming - they had time to figure out how to process them safely and efficiently.” I pay this government way too much money annually to be okay with this happening in my name and with my dollar. The least I can expect as a tax payer is that the federal government will follow the rule of law in the country I pay my taxes. If you told me last week that they would tear gas mothers and kids I would have thought it was crazy. But it’s actually happening. I’m terrified. I’m scared of all the other crazy shit that everyone says is never gonna happen - actually happening. How does everyone else feel? #internationalLaw #borderpatrol #asylumseekers #teargas
Yesterday I stumbled upon @avogat0 at an anti fur protest organized by @Rob____Banks in Soho. I’d never met her before - she kindly walked up to me and asked if the lining on my hood was made of fur. I told her I had no idea - it felt fake and the coat was a gift. She checked the brand and told me it was definitely real fur. She also told me I could donate the fur trim - via buffalo exchange through COATS FOR CUBS - and it would go towards making beds for animals in shelters. I told her that sounded like a great idea and she offered to take it for me. So I let her. I wasn’t expecting so much attention but the entire protest erupted in cheers. I didn’t want the attention because I was quite embarrassed I’d been wearing fur in the first place but I would never have known a lot of what I learnt from her. There are a lot of fabulous faux fur brands (and brands who don’t use any animal products) — check them out for your winter jackets @hoodlamb @noizeoriginal —- and if you have fur please consider donating it to the animals. #CoatsForCubs #NoFur coatsforcubs.org 📸 - @jeffrey_vik
For those who don’t understand Serbian, headline reads: “Bojana, who’s “all that,” says she’s achieved Novak Djokovic’s status.” I call BULLSHIT! I’ll write in English so that everyone understands, but a little message to #BlicMagazin and #TVNovosti in Serbian: Mi smo iz male, fenomenalne zemlje i mi treba da podrzavamo jedno drugog u uspehu, a ne da kreiramo kretenske, netacne price! Kako ste uposte mogli da izmislite ovaku glupost!? I’m posting about this not because I expect journalists to stop creating pointless drama, nor to tell you it’s a preposterous lie (which it is), but rather to ask that journalists and editors in Serbia, please consider building us UP, rather than putting each other down. We are a small and amazing country, we can’t afford SHIT like this! Not only did I never say this, but I said the opposite. The source is a more “reputable” publication #TVNovosti - Swipe left. Headline: “I’m going to be a Champion, like Novak” – as if I am a 12 year old child and not a 37 year old woman with a career, a motorcycle and a mortgage. Novak Djokovic’s success is RARE and INCREDIBLE! He has transcended parts of himself most of us will never know and he’s an inspiration. I can only hope to reach such personal and professional achievements. But making two headlines in articles about my career, reflect something I never said about him, is demeaning to both of us. When you read lies like this, which are tabloid bully tactics, you do question your own sense of reality. Did I actually say that? Was I drinking bad coffee? In reading the article I realized, not only did I never say the shit printed, but the identity of my co-worker is MISTAKEN. Anita, my hair stylist, grew up in Serbia and spoke to the journalist in Serbian. She’s quoted as a woman who doesn’t speak a word of Serbian. I don’t know Milan Adzic, but either you are a pathological liar, a terrible listener or a lazy journalist. #BLIC and #TVNOVOSTI I implore both of you, for the sake of integrity, take this down and print something REAL. PS. A 10 year old photo of me in my underwear? Really?! You couldn’t find something more recent? @djokernole @caonevena
Just a super useful pie chart with some super useful facts... #Accurate 🎯
Everyone who knows me knows... I’m always late. Happy Veterans Day! This is an awesome photo from @wilmervalderrama and @dsavre from many moons ago when we were all part of one big veteran family! Love to you all and big shout out to the veterans of this country. Thank you for your service. #VeteransDay
That’s me.... #DicklessAssociate. To all the Dickless Associates out there. Happy Monday. Thank you @anya.reuveni for this super cool creation. I’m now an animation! @westworldhbo
I wrote and posted this in 2016... This photo is from 1997 in Australia 📸: David Gray. Mick Roelandts, a firearms-reform manager, looks over prohibited weapons that were handed in under the government’s buy-back scheme. 700,000 guns were bought back. Percentage-wise, that’s the equivalent to 40 million in the US. Today, 50 humans died in Orlando in a mass shooting. I send my love and condolences to everyone in the US who’s been devastated by the abuse, ignorance and greed surrounding this country’s #gunlaws. The #SecondAmendment, the right to bare arms, was created in 1789 to arm militia and help revolutionaries and citizens give this country freedom – not to grant freedom to crazy people to commit hate crimes. The US has an incredible constitution, one of the most beautiful texts on human rights that you can read. I am dumbfounded and saddened by the systematic abuse of it’s purpose in the interest of money and lobby groups! In Australia, a mass shooting in 1991 resulted in the death of 15 people, including a girl from my school. A few years later, another one in Tasmania resulted in 35 dead. Following that, the prime minister, John Howard, a right wing pimple who I never voted for, instituted a plan to buy back guns and automatic rifles. He fought the states on this till legislature was passed. For this I am eternally grateful. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A MASS SHOOTING SINCE. “The fundamental problem,” Howard wrote in The New York Times “was the availability of high-powered weapons, which enabled people to convert their murderous impulses into mass killing. Certainly, shortcomings in treating mental illness may have played a role. But nothing trumps easy access to a gun. It is easier to kill 10 people with a gun than with a knife.” The ban of automatic and semi-automatic weapons was accompanied by legislation requiring all applicants to show “genuine reason” for owning a gun. Gun deaths in Australia have dropped by more than half, and mass shootings are ZERO! The US has an amazing constitution. The LAW is not supposed to be governed by politics or money. People of this country want NEW GUN LAWS. Why is money and politics governing this debate!? #GunReformWorks
