Hard to believe that the remaining forever young Wolfgang Joop is already 70. On 18 November, Germany’s most important designer celebrates his birthday. He revealed in the interview his main life wisdom our site author Carolin Dendler. Read and learn!

Only a superfluous number one better immediately forgets is seventy for Wolfgang Joop. On 18 November he celebrates its Jubilee day Lviv with his partner Edwin somewhere. No big party. Better go underground. His felt age? Joop: “so about 17, because there’s a feeling that me always not yet left has.” I see myself on the school and didn’t do my homework. Or worse – my high school diploma must imitate.” Joop has a dream that constantly recurs: “I yell to the teacher with the words ‘ I am a famous fashion designer, I’m successful – even without this fuckin’ school.'”

Joop reveals his wisdom
For Our site, the all-rounder (fashion designer, TV judge, artist) has again done homework and (7 again is his favorite number) summarized his seven most important worldly wisdom:

  1. move your luck not on tomorrow
    “No life is so long, that you can move the luck on tomorrow.” I live in the present and do everything immediately. I’m not on sliders, but notoriously impatient and that often leave out to my environment. Life is mystical: I think luck attracts luck always. Evil always evil. Always buddies repeated disaster. My grandmother used to preach: If the devil is in the corner peed, you must wipe all doll. Thus she said actually: above you can not run bad, but you can arm yourself against it. Good thoughts or prayers. I believe in the power of words to send into the universe. And I believe in the unseen in our world. The appearance of Angel sounds somehow too simplistic. But I know you must be friends with the invisible, visible on our Earth is only a small part.”
  2. all great people know fear
    “Fear is a bad advisor. You paralyze. You must come to terms with his own fate. I put everything on one card and went very well. Life’s work also means not to have gone in the knee. And that is very good. I was always anxious. But all great, magnificent people knew the fear. The coward is a hero, not the reckless. The fearless topple at the first opportunity on the road, but cowards will have the chance to fly. Those who have the most fear, imagine any disaster, Act mostly as first. I can me everything terrible, disease, so I’m being annoying all friends. I hesitate only, but then I dare always the first step. It is no problem to make a wrong decision, you can correct them Yes or apologize. “But I’m waiting never that someone tells me what to do.”
  3. lovers come and go. The family remains
    “That says the word Yes, they love times lovers, but you don’t love them. Certainly it was hot at some point on it, but the temperature subsides. It’s just with the time. With the family you’re rooted, it is like your own body, you there cut something off, it seems as if you lose a private body. My life partner Edwin is around 35 years at my side. There were many on the and ABS. The heart is just unpredictable, in a kind of permanent Pubert├Ąt. Sexuality, eroticism, looking for always the foreign and the familiar love. This is a conflict with which one must learn to live. And sure, in my family, there were many disputes. But we have all realized that we are extreme people, not in a traditional model of life that can be. However, family celebrations, with the harmony prescribed for the day, getting on the nerves went me. I wanted to leave always Christmas.”
  4. my principle: Learning by doing
    “Learning by doing – was my whole life. I have studied the fashion designers nor the TV judge. My TV career was spontaneous, as much in my universe. I have not even coach me. Eyes down and my motto is. I always look at how the others do it? Sounding positive and negative examples. As I ‘ Germany’s next top model’ judge was, I have I a plus made from the misconduct of others. GNTM viewers much of the routine had become, and so I began with my open way somehow to disrupt. But that has amused many annoyed some Produktionshansel. Heidi was the first, who had figured it out, that I was more of an asset. My success to be elegant disobedience.”
  5. turn up one flaw plus
    “I know the poverty in times of war. And know how to circumvent it because only arises from the lack of a peculiar force. As a teenager I desperately tried out of nowhere have a virtue to make. I came from East Germany, had no chic Western clothes. So I played the cool Ostler, wearing my old corduroy pants, even knitted stockings and the padded jackets self-confident.”

6 forgiveness is important
“You must make peace – even to himself. Otherwise, stunted your soul and make smaller your talent. We are not born again, we carry the cross of life. I have forgiven my father, sometimes zuhaute. And I have also wreaked havoc as a child. You spent how much time as a young man to worry because one doesn’t like the other. And you hated because it was rejected. How stupid. I hated all of my teachers. I was a small vestibule, which raged through ancient castles and secretly be befriended with Russian children because I loved that. I was then forbidden to talk with Russian children, but I’ve always liked broken bans because it’s sexy. The good never were for me. I was better with the hookers on the Reeperbahn together than with a boring cocktail of Blankenese ladies.”

7 older is a matter of intelligence
“We must absolutely make a concept, how to determine as a older person self through life goes. I want to land inside a nursing home. I hope the people important for me survive me, because they know what to do. I would like to be not coddled or fed. It is a question of intelligence to avoid the general care and to take its own, small adventure. I’d rather swallow a pill. “If one is already mentally switched off just like an old household machine, then I prefer to go on the hazardous waste.”
