When I heard the news that he committed suicide I was very shocked ... I have always appreciated and admired his creations. It's true that I did not know almost anything about him. I did not know about his drug addiction or even about his declared homosexuality. In my humble opinion he was a very discreet person in terms of his private life and he always let his creations speak in his place.
Sincerity, honesty and his way was too direct, unequivocal, "devoid of mystery and elegance" to take his life shocked everyone all over the world but at the same time this made them virtually mute. Haw much they would of liked another mysterious death, the discussions and their gossip if McQueen would have preferred a more "noble" journey into the other world ... They would of enjoyed every second of uncertainty and mystery if instead of using a rope he would of chosen to leave between us with a handful of intelligently assorted pills swallowed with French champagne... at least if he would chose an expensive drug overdose... or if he would of drown in his million dollars pool …. Anything but not such a plebeian and inappropriate choice for VIP status ...
It's hard living in this frivolous world of fashion no matter how high you are. Personal happiness often does not depend on the success that we have. Sometimes it might seem paradoxical but happiness might be just inversely proportional to success. Peace of mind and inner balance are not the result of the awards, the genius or of the money. You can have everything without having that unique little thing that would really effect your existence.
