Karl Lagerfeld Talks about Sex and Drugs with Vice Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld Talks Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll

You could never accuse Karl Lagerfeld of being shy, but this week he has given one of his most candid interviews ever to Vice magazine. The creative director spoke about everything including drugs, porn, sex, homosexuality and his childhood.

Here are some excepts from the interview. I think it's interesting to hear Karl speak so openly and I would love to hear your thoughts.

  • On drugs: "I saw others doing it and I didn't think it was such a success. There was a famous man who had written about flies and insects, and I'm like the one who watches the insects. I prefer to see how drugs work on others. And I cannot smoke cigarettes. When I was 14 I wanted to smoke because my mother smoked like mad. I wanted to smoke to look grown-up but my mother said, 'You shouldn't smoke. Your hands are not that beautiful and that shows when you smoke."

To hear what else Karl had to say, just


  • On children: "If I were interested in children, I would be a godfather—or a godmother. I don’t like the idea of taking people out of their lives and their contexts. If there were a child I wanted to adopt, I would try to find the family of the child and give them the money for an education in his life and his context."
  • On porn: "I admire porn. I personally only like high-class escorts. I don’t like sleeping with people I really love. I don’t want to sleep with them because sex cannot last, but affection can last forever. I think this is healthy. And for the way the rich live, this is possible. But the other world, I think they need porn. I also think it’s much more difficult to perform in porn than to fake some emotion on the face as an actor. Frustration is the mother of crime, and so there would be much more crime without prostitutes and without porn movies."
  • On Beth Ditto: "She is very good. I know her very well. She’s genius. She doesn’t end up in what we use for shows, but she has real personality."
  • On mobile phones: "I’m not working at a switchboard. I have to concentrate on what I’m doing. The few people I have in my telephone are already too much. When I’m on the phone I talk, but I really want to be alone to sketch, to work, and to read. I am reading like a madman because I want to know everything."
