There was some controversy about our outfits and how we were dressed and stuff on the Boss music video, which…I don’t know, I think part of the whole—part of the whole stand that we’re making with this thing that we’re calling women empowerment is the fact that, you know, this society has a lot to say on what makes a woman—what should make a woman feel good, and what doesn’t look good, and what does look good, and…they think that they have a right to tell us as women what should make us feel confident in our own bodies. And whether that is, you know, being covered up and wearing a long sleeve sweater, or showing a body part that maybe you would like to show off, at the end of the day, we’re the only ones that are entitled to our bodies, and you’re allowed to wear whatever makes you feel good and whatever makes you feel confident. And that made us feel confident in the video. We’re not encouraging for anyone to dress like that or to dress in a certain way, we’re encouraging all women to dress how they would like to dress and how they would like in order to feel confident and in order to feel good, because at the end of the day we’re the only ones that should be making that call. And whether or not somebody sexualizes you for wearing an outfit, that’s their problem and not yours, I think. And, yeah, I think there’s this whole movement dedicated to that now: the feminist movement of women wearing what they want to wear for them and not for anybody else. And whatever your judgment is on that, it’s not up to you. Girls, we gotta stand firm on that. So, I don’t know, that’s just—that’s what we believe.
