I had kind of my Beatles moment, cause you know, I’m not going to have this fame forever. This is going to be have something I have now, and then it’s going to be gone. There’ll be some other new franchise and some other new guy, so you have to enjoy this stuff while it happens. So, while I was in Japan once, and I was going around this school, as part of this TV show for this promotion I was doing, and I bumped into this girl in the corridor, and I said, “Oh I’m sorry,” and, boom! just fainted. And that’s not going to be forever, so while I can make Japanese girls faint, I’m going to.
Before the show I was like, ‘This is what I’ll wear; this is what I won’t wear’, but now I’m more willing to try different silhouettes and mix patterns. I think it was just a [matter of] letting my walls down a little bit. My motto now is, ‘People will either love it or they’ll hate it,’ and you have to give them that chance.
