All our friends, they’re gettin’ on But the girls are still staying young. If I get caught being rude in a conversation With a child bride on her summer vacation. No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys There’s a little something inside that won’t let me. No matter how hard I try to have an open mind There’s a little voice inside that prevents me. how I live. it got me here Locked in this bathroom full of tears. And I have begged for you and I have borrowed But I been the only sister to my own sorrow No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys There’s a little something inside that won’t let me. No matter how hard I try to have an open mind There’s a little clock inside that keeps ticking There’s only one difference between you and me When I look at myself, all I can see I’m just another lady without a baby No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys There’s a little something inside that won’t let me. No matter how hard I try to have an open mind There’s a little cop inside that prevents im not gonna break for you im not gonna pray for you im not gonna pay for you that’s not what ladies do oh when you break when you break oh when you break oh when you break
I want to make movies one day, like absolutely I want to direct movies. And I directed this music video (for indie band Sage + The Saints) and I was like, it’s just this dinky little thing and it’s fun, and I’m so happy to do it, but it’s going to be a big deal, no matter what. Even if I shoot it on a Polaroid camera, people will be like, ‘What did she do? Let’s take a look.’ It’s like, ‘How about you give me a second to figure it out?’ So, yes, that’s not something to complain about. It’s incredible that I can do that. It’s just kind of weird. It’s different.
I also just like really like big movies. I’m American, I grew up on them. But I also want them to be really good. I think that that’s totally possible. When you’re not completely product obsessed, I think it’s possible.
I just directed this music video with my friend, and it’s going to be made to be something that it’s not. It’s something I did in four days, it was a fun little story, and it’s going to get more attention than whatever it’s supposed to get. I think it’s just something to play on. If you can’t change it, then don’t be afraid of it — push harder!
— Kristen Stewart about her tattoo on her right forearm (x)
I got this because of this film. I gave Valentine [her character in ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’] tattoos for the film, so I had transfers made. You don’t know anything about Valentine, it’s all about Maria. And that’s a huge aspect of the story, is that she never focuses on herself. They never talk about her life, ever. I wanted to show little indications of, ‘Who is that?’ Instead of just playing an assistant that was generic. She has interests, she’s going to places, you just don’t know where they are. And so I got so attached to this one that I got it. /…/ This is part of ‘Guernica’. It’s a Picasso painting that I saw when I was 18 and in Madrid. It fucking floored me and it’s the first time I responded to a piece of art like that. It is just perfect for me. I love what it makes me think of. It’s like ‘keep going, and keep the fucking light on.’
I’m not saying that anyone’s impression of me is wrong, but initially I was deemed very ungrateful, like I didn’t care. It’s a thing. Think anything about me, do NOT think that I don’t care. It was because I was nervous and I was freaking out that everyone was fucking staring at me.
There will be an exhibition at the Evil Rock N Roll Cat shop in Los Angeles, lasting June 14th until July 31st, that features rare photos of The Runaways. Curated by Kristen Stewart, Riley Keough and Juliana Sorelli.
I’ve been saying I want to direct movies since I was 10 years old. And then I started making movies and working with such incredible people that I realized what I was up against. So it was like, no way, now I’m gonna get more attention than I ever should just because of who I am. Basically, I’m grateful to Sage, because she was like, ‘I have this little thing, no one could tell the story better than you… just do it and stop being such a pussy.’
