Rest in peace. I didn’t know that [Alexander McQueen died]
Would you say that Michael Jackson is your favourite singer without knowing that he is dead? Or, would you say that Alexander McQueen is your favourite designer not knowing he is also dead? Maybe you wouldn’t because you have the time to read the news. But when you are as busy as Justin Bieber is, you could think McQueen is still alive.
Anyway, during one interview he had with the New York Times’ T Magazine, Bieber was asked about his personal style and favourite designers. Bieber said a few names including the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, of whom he talked in the present tense. “I’m not a splurger, but I like clothes like G-star and I really like shoes. I wear a lot of hoodies, but I also like Alexander McQueen. I think he is very original and does amazing stuff”, he said. “Unfortunately, [Alexander McQueen] died recently”, the reporter clarified for him. “Rest in peace. I didn’t know that. But I think I have my own style, I like to try to dress fun but keep things simple and me and like to dress myself, I have no stylist to help me if that’s what you mean”, the singer went on. We rather not comment this!
