Rick Owens says he hates being a public figure.

Rick Owens, guru of neo-grunge, is too cool for school. In a video for HINT magazine, Owens shares what he’s totally over: having a press office (“I didn’t like paying someone to remind me every day that I had to get more attention for myself. That started feeling icky”), speaking French, (“Let the lawyers do it,”) and staying awake all-day (I get oversaturated having to communicate with a lot of people all day ... It’s kind of a mini suicide.”)
