Incidentally, dear reader: I looked for a celebrity men for this chapter. I wanted half men, half women. Turns out celebrity men don’t provide quotes about being single. Interesting, right? Why? Perhaps because interviewers don’t really ask them. Who knows. All i know is that i couldn’t find the freakin’ quotes, despite spending hours hunting.
Cher: ‘Mother told me a couple of years ago, “sweetheart, settle down and merry a rich man” I said, “Mom, i am a rich man” ‘.
Katy Perry: ‘I’ve learned i’m in a very modern fairytale, but i also know i do’t need the Prince Charming to have a happy ending. I can make the happy ending myself’
Salma Hayek: ‘It’s nice to have a relationship, but women have become addicted. You can have a relationship with god. With nature. With dogs. With yourself. And yes, you can also have a relationship with a man, but if it’s going to be a shitty one, it’s better to have relationships with your flowers.’
Jennifer Lawrence: ‘I’m not a lonely person. I never felt lonely… it’s not a sad thing to be alone. I think what i was trying to get across was that i don’t feel a lack of something not being in a relationship. I don’t feel like there is an emotional void to be filled’.
Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood mac: ‘I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything. I know women who are going ,like, “I don’t want to grow old alone”. And i’m like, “See, that doesn’t scare me…” I’ll always be surrounded by people.’
Gloria Steinem: ‘We are becoming the man we wanted to marry.’
