"People have this perception of me - which is my fault - of maybe a rapper or Champagne-sipping and Hamptons and white fur and just cliché type of things that are just kind of old and dated and corny, which isn't how I am today, you know? That was just part of my image for a second... You evolve - like, I need to retire my diamond necklace and fur jacket now."
