Marc Jacobs on all the attention he gets: "Sometimes it hurts my feelings, but basically I'm really happy with the attention that we get. It's more work-related than what I'm going through in my personal life. If people weren't interested in the work then they wouldn't really care about my personal life. So I think about it logically. The attention toward me is basically because of what we've built as a company. If we built a pile of crap then nobody would care what I ate for lunch. We live in a world where people are really hungry for information, and they're not hungry for information on subjects that they're not interested in." [Interview; see full article on Facebook]
