Since we will not ask for your favorite "X word," we will simply ask for your shameless plug here:
I’ve just joined the “Perfectly Imperfect” initiative in partnership with Plan B One-Step® and I’m really psyched about it! We are trying to spark a conversation about the many myths surrounding emergency contraception and let women know that nobody is perfect. I mean I make a fool of myself constantly but it’s okay because at the end of the day I make people laugh and being imperfect is what makes me, me! Check out the whole initiative at www.PerfectlyImperfectandMe.com.

Also Girl Code Live airs August 31st on MTV. Check it out!
