Rick Genest, the Face of Mugler and Muse of Nicola Formichetti, Speaks with a Sexy Accent

In response to our instantly viral Q&A with Nicola Formichetti about the lengths he went to get tattooed wonder Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, to model in Mugler, we got this nicely produced video from the Canadian site Nitelife.ca. In their interview with Rick, or Rico, he says a lot of sweet stuff with a sexy accent, our favorite being: “I’m a freak show performer…I’m tattoo guy, a fire-eater, a blockhead, a geek, and I do clown.” Cute, right? We’re picturing him with a big red nose and giant rainbow-striped afro. But we couldn’t quite decipher what he says at the very end, something about being a babe and marrying Lady Gaga? That might be his greatest performance yet…
