Kate Moss. Childhood Success and Wishes

Kate Moss. Childhood Success and Wishes
Yareah Magazine

Kate Moss came second on the Forbes top-earning models list last year. Wonderful! And she has her own line of clothes. However, her controversial private life, high-profile relationships and drug use made of her a problematic figure. Who is the real Kate? Listen to her:

I kind of lost interest in school. I was never really that interested anyway. I was never academic. I didn’t really go to school as much as I should have.

I was 14 when I started modeling. At the end of that first day my mum said, If you want to do this, you’re on your own because I’m not traipsing around London ever again like that. It’s a nightmare.

I was never anorexic, so I was never that skinny. I was never bony-bony. But I remember thinking, I don’t want to be this skinny.

People think your success is just a matter of having a pretty face. But it’s easy to be chewed up and spat out. You’ve got to stay ahead of the game to be able to stay in it.

Once I was walking from The Mercer in New York – because otherwise I don’t walk anywhere – and this woman paparazzo who was following me fell over a fire hydrant and her whole tooth went through her lip. I leant over her, saying, ‘Are you all right?’ and she was still taking pictures.

I have met almost everyone I’ve wanted to meet.

I would have wanted to be a rock star, a lead singer, if I wasn’t a model. I’d go touring in a bus with my band. In my next life, that’s the plan.

Now I’m being blamed not only for anorexia but for lung cancer. – On being a social smoker.

All of a sudden to get all of this attention, and to be away from home and working all the time was hard. I was on planes all the time. I didn’t see my friends. I cried a lot. It was quite terrifying.

You go to a show, and there’s no food at all, so if you’re doing shows back to back, you can forget eating. I remember standing up in the bath one day, and there was a mirror in front of me, and I was so thin! I hated it. I never liked being that skinny.
