>> Abbey Lee Kershaw on Working with Terry Richardson —Abbey Lee Kershaw won't talk about rumors of a relationship with Freja Beha Erichsen, but she will say that she "didn't have to act that much" for a sex-inspired Terry Richardson shot with Freja for Purple Fashion. "Terry doesn’t force girls to do anything they don’t want to. He puts you in a G-string in a pile of mud because you want to do it. You touch yourself because you want to. For me, that shoot was the truth about how things were between us both, and I felt good doing it. I’m not ashamed of it — why should I be? . . . I’ve always swung both ways . . . I don’t call myself bisexual: I’m just experimental. I was always looking for somebody to sweep me off my feet, but then I got bored after two months and was on to the next.” [Times UK]
