Alexa Chung: "No One is as Happy as They Seem on Instagram"

British beauty Alexa Chung has a bone to pick with Instagram. She believes no one is having as good a time as they're showing! She says that the perfect world seen on the social site isn't always even close to reality: "No one is as happy as they seem on Instagram. Even friends of mine. I’ll say, 'Wow, that looked amazing!’ and they’ll be like, 'Nah, it wasn’t.’ I tell them, 'You need to stop putting that stuff up because it looks perfect.’ But then Instagram would be awful if it was reality, wouldn’t it? 'Here are my spaghetti hoops and me crying over EastEnders.’” 

 Alexa says she feels very lucky to be in the position she is now, but  she still tries to stay down to earth, even when she gets to attend amazing parties: “Yes, I am lucky. I know I am. Every time I call my mum, she’s always like, 'Remember how lucky you are, Alexa!’ But the thing is, I live in the East Village and my apartment is nothing crazy. The night-time invitations are fancy-pants, but I’m like Cinderella and at the end of the night I have lost a shoe and I am going home in a pumpkin.” 

 She admits she has forgotten why she now lives in NYC, but still loves the city even though she is now feeling a little tired by some aspects of life there: “I’ve honestly forgotten why I live in New York. I moved there originally because I did an MTV show, then I moved back there a second time to do another show. I loved the fast pace. You’re spoilt in New York, you can get anything you want. I was running on adrenalin for years, but lately I’ve just felt exhausted by it. I had a meltdown in Starbucks the other day because they didn’t know how to make an English Breakfast tea. He was like [puts on an upbeat Starbucks voice], 'Here is your English Breakfast latte!’ and I was like, 'I can’t take it any more!’”
