She added that confidence is what does the trick and that if that makes her a ‘sexy’ icon , she’s all for it.
“You know the trick? It’s not how you look. It’s confidence. So for me, if the confidence as we defined is what makes a woman sexy, that means I am confident. I’m all for it. I accept it. Sexy icon”
