Nicole Richie's Not Sure Why She's Famous Either!

I love this Nylon cover of Nicole Richie. She doesn't look half bad, due to the oversized shirt that is hiding her skeleton-like-possibly-pregnant-figure, and I kind of love that she cops to not knowing why anyone even cares about what she does, where she goes, or who she dates. Here are some quote-worthy excerpts from her interview:

On her celebrity:"I don't have a clue why I'm famous. I didn't make myself famous... You're doing it. I think people just want to say, 'Oh, she doesn't have a job she doesn't do anything.' They get off on that. But I do have a job, like everyone else."

On her past heroin use: "When I pictured heroin, I pictured some crazy crackhead with no shoes under a bridge. You never think that is going to be you. And it never was me. I was never under a bridge, and I always had shoes."

On being a role model: "I don't walk around pretending that I'm perfect, so I don't think anyone should hold me to that. The dangerous thing is that there are 16 -, 17 -, 18 - year-olds that people consider to be role models. I'm so happy I wasn't famous back then... You'd think I was the f****** devil." I'm so using that "I was never under a bridge" defense the next time somebody calls me a crackhead. Source: Just Jared
