How do you want to go?

I don’t want to die! But if I had to, I would like to go in my sleep.

 

Any deathbed confessions?

Well, so far so good, none yet.

 

Where would you prefer to be, Heaven or Hell?

I think I’d rather rule in Hell than serve in Heaven. My friends tell me that I will go to Hell and take over, anyway!

 

What’s the first thing you would like to do in the afterlife?

That’s a very tempting question... I think I would like to come and watch all my crushes in the shower.

 

Which songs are on repeat in your version of Hell?

Lana Del Rey’s “Gods and Monsters.”

 

Name one thing you’re glad you’ll never have to do again on Earth?

Deal with unwanted drama.

 

What’s the wildest thing you ever did while you were alive?

No comment!

 

Who would you like to dress in the afterlife and why?

It has to be Marilyn Monroe. I still think she is by far the most stunning woman to have walked the Earth, and she had b*lls.

 

Has there been any incident when you thought it was going to be your last day on Earth?

Too many to mention. I believe we should all wake up thinking it’s our last day and make the best of it.

 

What do you think people will be saying over your casket?

Thank God he’s gone. Hah!

 

One thing you’d like to change about your life…

To begin with, I wish I didn’t eat all the samosas and Chinese food growing up because, to be frank, it still hasn’t left me.

 

Who would you spend your last day on Earth with?

At the expense of being politically correct, I would have to say no comment to save myself from being beaten up.

 

What would we catch you doing on your last day?

A whole lot of dirty...

 

Was there anyone on Earth you wanted to punch in the face?

Hmm... where do I begin?

 

What would your last meal on Earth be?

It has to be the lobster spaghetti at the Hôtel Costes in Paris.

 

Your last words would be?

I should have written a book...

 

If you’re still designing clothes in the afterlife, what would your collection be called?

My last collection was inspired by the suicide forest in Japan, so I would like to continue taking inspiration from it and keep designing.

 

Who would be your brand ambassador?

It has to be Marilyn Monroe...you see, it’s an unhealthy obsession.
