Everyone’s favorite Hot Topic employee, Bella Thorne, did a long-ass interview with The Los Angeles Times. She talks about everything from her drug use, to being broke at 18, to having too many cats (no such thing). It is long and if you want to spend a chunk of your day reading it, go ahead, but I sifted through the mountain of used cat litter and pulled out what I think are the most interesting pussy dingles.
The interview starts exactly how you think it would, the only thing missing from the interviewer’s description is the name of the Sum 41 song Bella probably has playing in the room:
“‘Come upstairs with me,’ Bella Thorne says. She takes off, racing up the neon-lit steps she has painted — every one a different color of the rainbow — to her bedroom, above which iridescent pink bulbs warn: ‘[fuck] off.'”
Don’t you dare come into 21-year-old Bella’s room! She has lights that say “fuck off” (tongue sticking out of mouth emoji)! This girl… is so much. And shockingly, this interview taught me we have a lot in common. For example: Bella used to be against weed and now is a huge stoner (same):
“I used to be super, super against weed…. I thought it was the devil’s lettuce. I was always the really good two-shoes…”
Then, when Bella was 16 and had to do an emotional role which called for her crying all the time, she said it became hard for her to get out of the depressing head space, unable to sleep at night. So she got her stoner brother to give her some of his stash to help her sleep. And now she can’t get enough of the good stuff, but she never touches any of the hard stuff:
“I think they think I take serious drugs, and I’m just smoking weed.”
Bella also becomes highly relatable to me when discussing her cats, of which she has a very reasonable 19. I know! Why not 20? Round that shit off:
“She didn’t want her first cat, Lola, to be spayed because she thought it was barbaric, and now there are four generations of cats living here.”
Wow, animal rights activist icon over here, eh? Honestly that brings a tear to my cat-lady eye. I hope all 19 of those pussies are living their best lives sleeping a combined 304 hours a day. Don’t show up wearing black to Bella Thorne’s house, you’ll go home looking like Cousin Itt. I wonder who cleans the litter box? You know, this is Bella Thorne: she lets those cats shit in her bushes and calls it fertilizer for her weed plants.
Bella continues being relatable by talking about how she was broke at 18.
“Despite working on ‘Shake It Up’ for three years, she says that when she turned 18, she had $200 to her name. When I ask her where the money went, her voice turns serious: ‘You know where it went.’ I reply I do not, but she declines to elaborate. (Per the Coogan Law, employers must withhold 15% of a minor’s gross wages, preventing income from going entirely to kid actors’ guardians.)”
So wait, did Bella’s guardians shake her down for cash? Poor girl, no wonder she smokes so much weed and requires the love of 19 cats.
The interview also took a turn away from cat talk and she got serious, talking about how she was molested from ages 6-14 by “an older man in her home”. She had previously tweeted about the molestation when someone suggested she was molested while working at Disney, though she said in the interview that she doesn’t want to name her abuser.
Bella also spoke about her boyfriend 31-year-old Mod Sun, who she went out and got semi-permanent teeth jewelry with. Yeah, this girl is a rollercoaster of emotions, isn’t she?
“She and Mod Sun, 31, spend nearly all of their time together. He’s adventurous, which she likes: Recently, they both got tooth jewelry — crystals semi-permanently attached to their teeth. At first, she got a ‘disco ball’ tooth but had to scale it down to three crystals because they started to fall out in her food when she was eating at Chili’s.”
Don’t you hate when you’re forking down some reasonably priced bar-quality food and your teeth jewels fall out into your smokehouse combo? Once again, Bella the crazy cat lady: highly relatable.
