In his latest publicity appearance for the exhibition "From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk," Jean Paul Gaultier sat down with Suzy Menkes at London’s Barbican for an on-stage interview. He also talks about Madonna, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus.


On Madonna... “I was in some ways in love with Madonna. I saw her dancing to Holiday [on TV] and she was dressed very well … It was exactly in my spirit and I said, ‘Oh, she must be English!’ because the look was not at all American. I loved her music — I love that first period of Madonna more than anything else.”


On Lady Gaga... “Lady Gaga has more eccentricity, rather than style. What I loved about Madonna is that she had style and girls wanted to dress like her. With Gaga it’s more difficult, because it’s all eccentricity.”


On Miley Cyrus... “She’s very young. I should remark only that there is something with the Disney girls, no? That they all become so sexual. I don’t know if it’s Mickey, or … ?”
