Nicole Richie shares the job of cover girl in next month's Harper's Bazaar. A few excerpts from her interview:
On her troubles with the law: "Every mistake I make, there's consequences, I don't take anything lightly."
On being above the law: "Well, clearly I'm not! Otherwise, it would be smooth sailing. I get caught for everything!"
On her plans for life: "My plan was not to be a celebrity. My plan was to be a singer and an entertainer. I wanted to go to NYU, major in musical theater, do Broadway, and come out with an album. Unfortunately, I started f**king up when I was in my teens."
On her friends: "This year, my biggest struggle has been realizing that some people close to me are not good for my life. I'm a girl and I love to gossip, but when I hear that people I consider friends are talking about me, it really hurts my feelings. It's not, 'Is Nicole okay?' but more like, 'I heard that Nicole blah-blah.'"
On her former stylist Rachel Zoe: "There's definitely an idea that Rachel styled me and she dressed me every day, like I was her Barbie. That's not the case. She dressed me for events."
On whether Zoe's fame affected their relationship: "Yes, I do. I've never met another stylist who has a publicist and an agent."
On her love of rock 'n' roll style: "I really like pale, I really like shiny, I like people that kind of look homeless. Back in the day, it would have been David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix."
