Never drunk, Greta Thunberg finds romance difficult and had to hire bodyguards after Trump tweet

Greta Thunberg has opened up about her everyday life as a teen, admitting that she was never drunk and dreads romance for fear of being vulnerable.

The 19-year-old Swedish climate activist also shared how she is very aware of everything she does – living solely on her student scholarship.

While she aims to walk everywhere she can, rather than take taxis, she made one exception during a time she had to have security guards on after Donald Trump’s public attack on her.

When Thunberg was named Time’s Person of the Year in 2019, President Trump tweeted after her address to the United Nations General Assembly: “She looks like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!

Unsurprisingly, Thunberg, then 17, was met with a tidal wave of death threats and media attention – forcing her to enlist security.

However, Thunberg recalled, when Trump was expelled from the White House, she tweeted: “He appears to be a very happy old man, looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!

Speaking to Times Magazine, Thunberg admitted that she would choose to come home late at night rather than take a taxi.

She said: I always walk. Maybe I should be more careful… Maybe I should be more careful. People tell me I have to.

“There was one period I had security guards, but it only lasted a few days.”

Far from being an ordinary teen, the three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee has also said that she does not and has never drunk.

She said, ‘I’ll never go out drinking… I won’t do anything… stupid, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m that kind of person or if it’s because I don’t want to see.’ I think it could be both.

One reason, she says, is that she doesn’t want anyone to brag about being the first person who manages to get her drunk.

She told the Times that she has the same concerns when it comes to romantic relationships.

If you find them, you are more at risk. So you have people looking at you, she said, but you are also much more vulnerable.

Although not every teen addresses the UN, most have a playlist of music, and Thunberg includes classic songs someone who is the queen of love; KC and Sunshine Band; Billie Jean; Blame it on the jig and should I stay or go.

Responding to a Times interview about whether she hooked up with other celebrities who became famous as teenagers – like Billie Eilish or Lily Allen, she said no.

The activist is due to publish her first book

The activist is due to release her first book, The Climate Book, on October 27 and aims to be the guide to understanding what is happening to the world, why and how to change it.

It’s hard because, in a way, I just feel like an activist – we know how to strike, how to talk to politicians.

But on the other hand, my attitude is very different [from other activists]. There are very few who have experience of being grassroots activists and the paparazzi follow them too.

“Someone recently told me I’m an influencer, but I don’t like it.”

Thunberg, who is still studying, said her least favorite subject in school was economics, because “that’s the thing we humans made and we worship now.”

She says all proceeds from the book will go to charity, and while it “would be nice to have the money,” she hopes to start a discussion instead.

Thunberg, who lives on student funding, said people would be “crazy” if she got the money from her position.

“I think we’re somewhat morally obligated to be active,” she said, “but you can’t really make a living out of that.”

“When it comes to artists or influencers, they can make money without people getting mad at them, but I can’t.”

The activist admitted her financial situation was “unsustainable” and said she lives in a friend’s apartment because all addresses are public in Sweden.

And about her future prospects, she said, “Sometimes I find myself thinking, ‘What am I doing with my life?'” She said, “I can’t predict anything. Let’s feel alive!”
