Hailey Baldwin pretends to be a real life model in the new Fashion Magazine, where she talks about being a marginalized Christian and her struggles Internet bullying. Dumb cow. Kidding. Baldwin is the jizz and egg scramble that came from Stephen and Kennya Baldwin, so unlike some of her Instagram model contemporaries who benefited from the fame nepotism boost, Baldwin pretty much started from scratch. Baldwin is "deeply religious" according to the magazine and fringe as f**k according to her:
I don’t think anybody should be afraid to represent or talk about it, even though I feel there’s something about Christianity that makes people very touchy. Definitely, at times—even now—it’s hard for me. Which is why, now in my 20s, I try to surround myself with people who believe the same thing I do—who follow it and are open to it—because it’s too hard to constantly get people to understand what I do if they just aren’t interested in it.
"Surrender myself" being one of those highly Christian lines that feels rapey but inspirational. Baldwin also shares details about the exclusive Hillsong Church that she attends with a VIP back room and bottle service with lit Jesus blood:
People wear Saint Laurent and [there are] cool hipster pastors. They’re very geared toward young people and making it applicable to everyday life, which I think is where people get a little confused in church, because it can be hard to relate to something so old school.
This is also the church attended by her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. I guess cultists can be Christians. The "stars, they're just like us" shenanigans are strong with this one, as she opens up about how quaint it is to do chores like us garbage monsters:
Alone time is really important when you do this because every time you’re working, you’re around a lot of different energies. It weighs a lot on you. That’s why I like coming home to New York and being able to be myself for a couple of days. You know how fun it is to do errands? I’m never home, so I’m like ‘I have to go buy sheets—that’s awesome!’ And then I just sit at home and watch the Food Network.
Sheet purchasing being a widely known humbling activity. She should try going to the checkout like with Imodium and a Hungry-Man XXL microwavable and saying "We'll see which side it comes out." Humble af. Finally, Baldwin opens up about her Insta insecurities:
It adds a lot of layers of insecurity. You’re being told on a much larger scale that you’re not pretty, you’re not this, you’re not that. Basically, it adds a lot of layers of bullying…You think about what they’re saying, and you wonder if they’re right.
Not to be too forward, but I'd bang you if that makes you feel any better. Just trying to do my Christian duty.
