Celebrating Kate Moss’ 45th

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Katherine Ann Moss is an English model and businesswoman who took over the industry when she was just 14 years old. Her 31 years in the limelight have been as scandalous as she is beautiful. And now that she just recently celebrated her 45th birthday in January, let’s take a closer look at the real Kate Moss you won’t find in the papers.

Did you know that Kate won’t accept a modeling gig for less than $10,000. Just like other famous supermodels Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell, these stars won’t work for less than it. Not that she needs it, but for some extra cash Kate DJ’s. She took a turn at the turntables in 2012 at a Prada party and since then has been charging a mere $397,000 for just a half hour gig!

Another fact about Kate Moss people don’t know is that she is very shy! She rarely gives interviews.

“When I used to do interviews a long time ago, I used to get very ill just worrying about them before they came out. I just didn’t like it. When I first started out I did press because I wasn’t really aware that they would write something really horrible but when they did, and I was like: ‘Oh no, I don’t want to go back there. I don’t really want to open up myself to that kind of criticism. And I think that a lot of the time you walk in a room [and] they already know what they want to write about you, so it doesn’t matter what you’re like. But sometimes I will do it if I like the person or the project.” 

It’s really interesting that in this modern age Kate likes to keep her life private. In an interview, she revealed why she doesn’t do social media. “I’ve never really liked it- that whole thing of ‘look at me!’. For me, the more privacy the better, not telling people where I am and what I’m doing. All that is the opposite of what I want to do.”

Mostly, Kate takes her job as a model very seriously. She told British Vogue in 2017, “As a model I am prepared to stand in a bikini at the end of an ice glacier when it’s minus 30, because that is what the client has booked me to do and that’s the job.” As she continues her thriving career, Kate is celebrated for being a top model in the industry. She has become an icon as well as an enigma. Cheers, Kate!
