“The big story is that at 14 when I started going out, I came out of my bedroom ready to go to a club wearing fishnets, motorcycle boots, black high-waisted hot pants of my mother’s and a black underwire top of my mother’s with a grommet belt, and I was like, ‘Ok I’m ready to go.’ Most mother’s would have been horrified, but she started clapping and was like, ‘Oh, finally! You are my daughter!’”
