“Okay, she has it all.” [ Laughter ]
And it’s true — I do. I’m young.
Oh. I’m gorgeous.
Ooh. But just this morning,
I had one sip of cold brew and ruined my only butthole. [ Laughter ] That’s right —
stars, they’re just like us. [ Laughter ] Okay, the rumors are true.
I’m single. Okay. Jaws are on the floor
at this point. I went through
a breakup recently. Breakups are cool ’cause it’s
like you have a best friend, and then they die.
[ Laughter ] [ Chuckles ]
But it’s okay. I didn’t like
having a boyfriend. I feel like the kind of girls
who are always like, “My boyfriend, my boyfriend,
my boyfriend,” are the same kind of girls
who are like, “There’s actually
too much sugar in fruit.” [ Laughter ] “So for me, it’s a dessert.”
[ Laughter ] But I’m getting back out there. I’m in the mix.
I’m dating. I love sex, ’cause it famously
has no consequences. [ Laughter ] I was hooking up
with a guy recently, and mid-moment, he goes, “Oh,
yeah, I love that fat, fat ass.” And I was like, “Hmm.
Maybe one ‘fat’ was enough.” [ Laughter ] I do bravely want to be thin
because of society. Yeah, she went there. She went there on late-night TV.
You’re obsessed. You’re obsessed.
You’re obsessed. That guy who I hooked up with,
I met him at a bar. And he was like,
“I live close to the bar. I can bike us back to my place.
You can ride on my pegs.” I was like, “Absolutely not.” He was like, “No, no, it’s okay.
It can hold 120 pounds.” I was like, “Okay.
You don’t know what math is. You are my type.”
[ Giggles ] [ Laughter ] I just think it’s, like, every
chubby girl’s nightmare to be, like, carried in a playful way. Like, I’m pretty sure
when I was born, the nurse, like, picked me up
and handed me to my mom. And I was like, “It’s okay.
You can put me down. Sad. Help!” ♪ This is healthy ♪ ♪ What I’m doing is healthy ♪ ♪ This is a good way
