The Pretty Little Liars star opens up about her past battles with anorexia and why that’s a factor in this year’s election for her.
“I’m such a huge supporter of Mrs. Clinton for so many reasons, specifically because she has been such a huge advocate for health care, and her definition of health care includes mental health care,” Troian says in the video, which you can watch below. “And that to me is just — it’s the deciding factor between both candidates.”
She continued, “With anorexia, a lot of it is about presenting a front of everything is OK, as you’re slowly killing yourself. Gone were the days where I was just a happy, carefree kid running around and suddenly I felt this inability to interact with people and to nourish myself.”
“If I had just been shunned to the side as not having ‘real problems,’ I don’t know that I would be living today,” Troian added. “I just want to make sure that everybody has the same opportunity for treatment that I have, and I think that we have to make sure that our government invests in those programs.”
Students at UNLV were totally shocked when Katy Perry – rocking a “Nasty Woman” tee and bold red lipstick – showed up at their dorm rooms on Saturday (October 22) in Las Vegas!
The 31-year-old singer was spotted snapping selfies with a pair of young women while she flashed a “Love Trumps Hate” sign.
Katy had a blast knocking on doors, sharing personal stories, and trying to drum up votes for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“We’re out here campaigning for Hillary Clinton. Ever heard of her?” Katy asked some students inside their room (via Associated Press). “Because there’s no other alternative. We need our issues heard, we need our bodies taken care of, we need all that choice.”
Katy was also spotted cheering as former Nevada Attorney General and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto spoke at an early vote rally.
Today marks the first day for early voting in Nevada ahead of the November 8 general election.
