On his five houses: I have a guest house because I dont want people in my home.
On the diet that led to his dramatic weight loss: I only like what I'm allowed to like. I'm beyond temptation. There is no weakness. When I see tons of food in the studio, for us and for everybody, for me it's as if this stuff was made out of plastic. The idea doesn't even enter my mind that a human being could put that into their mouth. I'm like the animals in the forest. They don't touch what they cannot eat.
On how he designs for Chanel, Fendi and others: I never mix it up. Fendi is completely different, and so are the collections I do for myself. They have not one point in common. In fact, I have no personality, or I have three, depending on how you look at it. And I love that there's no overlap.
On Lady Gaga: Shes an Upper West Side girl with real learning. Shes not just an idiot from nowhere.
