'I play that Sia song while I get ready. You know that one where she sings ‘Baby I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight’ and when you sing it really loudly and you’re wearing lipstick it kind of feels like you don’t need dollar bills to have fun. Though you bought the lipstick with dollar bills, at least credit-card dollar bills, which are kind of imaginary until you have to pay them back, and then you remember Sia is probably a millionaire and everything is a lie.'
