Here’s what the 41-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag…
On not taking fashion too seriously: “You shouldn’t let fashion hurt your feelings. If it does, that’s a good indicator you’re taking it way too seriously.”
On fashion in 2019: “The year 2019 is the year of coziness. Of waving your freak flag high…You are free to wear what you please, to sing what you like, and to see what else you can get away with. The only consequence of failure in fashion is that you shrug it off, have a laugh, dig up some more inspiration, and try again tomorrow.”
On what he’s realized as he’s gotten olden: “The older I get, the more I come to realize that’s all I’m in search of—the intensity of inspiration that usually comes and goes with your first project.”
