"I adore the American Forties look. And I love modern pop—I am a gay man in woman's body so God supposes I should love singers like Lady GaGa. It's complicated, on the one hand I wouldn't like to have all her songs on my iPod and listen to them over and over. On the other hand, I admire the Lady GaGa phenomenon. At first I didn't like her or the way she dressed. Now she is working with designers and wearing couture clothes. Bit by bit she is finding her image and it's nice to see it as she is undoubtedly talented girl." [Daily Mail]
