Bruce LaBruce of Vice recently sat down with fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld for an interesting interview in Paris. Speaking on a wide array of topics, we get to know the legendary figure in a more personal light with a lengthy piece covering several intriguing subjects. Excerpts from the interview are available below while the actual piece in its entirety can be found here.

You’ve been famous for quite some time, but the whole landscape of celebrity has changed so dramatically in recent years.

That’s part of our life, our culture.

Do you think it’s become kind of toxic?

Yes, but you cannot fight against it. There’s a price you have to pay for fame, and people who don’t want to pay that price can get in trouble. I accepted the idea of celebrity because of a French expression: “You cannot have the butter and the money for the butter.”

What does being politically correct mean to you?

It means people talking about charities. Do it, be charitable, but don’t make a subject of conversation out of it because then you bore the world to death. It’s very unpleasant. But I don’t go out a lot so I’m not so exposed to people.

And being isolated is not a problem for you?

I have no problem. That’s the miracle of my life. There are no problems, only solutions—good ones or bad ones.
