‘I really don’t think that I would be good at politics. I’m very rogue, I don’t like playing by rules,’ the BStrong founder said.

‘And this is not a joke, I’m really in pyjamas 95 percent of my life, and I don’t think that would work in the political landscape.’
Despite not having plans for politics, the 50-year-old admitted that she could do the job of New York City mayor if she wanted to.
‘I had an ex that told me, “you should run for major of New York because the subways would never be running more smoothly.” I could do the job, but I don’t know if it would be good for me,’ she said.
