Purple Fashion Magazine #9
Conversa entre Damien Hirst e Jay Z (conduzida por Bill Powers)

"Bill Powers - Is your hundred million dollar skull going on the road soon?

Damien Hirst - Yes, we're taking For the Love of God on a world tour, starting at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg in April, then to Korea and China. That's all we know so far, but it will probably come to New York after that. It's a four-year tour. You know, a lot of people got fucked up about the price tag, but the way the market is now, it's looking cheap. It's definitely one of those things you couldn't make again. We had to corner the market on diamonds and be super-secretive so we could get the perfect quality. I think they were onto us by the end of it. I'd love for you to see it the next time you're in London, Jay. It's in a vault there at the moment. You know, when I made it, I was worried that it might look tacky or bling. I mean, it's a lot of money to be playing around with. But I'm telling you, it's a motherfucker. It takes your breath away.

Bill Powers - I wish you'd brought it with you.

Jay Z - Put it on a necklace and bring it over."
