Karl Lagerfeld Talks Sex, Diet and Other Life Tips.

Is there anything Karl Lagerfeld can't do? From directing ice cream commercials with Rachel Bilson to partnering with Sephora to create a limited-edition snow globe, Kaiser Karl's kreativity knows no bounds.

So why not run a famous international newspaper for a day? The iconic designer took on the role of Metro's Guest-Editor-in-Chief for Tuesday's edition of the paper. The highly-publicized endeavor even included a competition for a chance to work as Lagerfeld's editorial assistant.

The Chanel designer didn't disappoint his fans. In characteristic fashion, Karl spilled the beans on everything from his favorite Parisian spots to how he's kept all that weight off. Here were our favorite candid tidbits:

On being human: I look the part. But I'm not that human, hm? But more down-to-earth than me, you will never find. You cannot be more down-to-earth.

On sex: No, I'm not very much interested in that. But it's not a question of time, people can make quickes, you know...I think sex is an overrated subject.

On having children: What I hate about children is that they put you in a generation mode. I don't want to be anyone's father generation, grandfather generation. I'm of no generation. I'm from every generation.

On M.I.A. and her middle finger: Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly—it's not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what's new about that? It's just become a bad habit.

On McDonalds: I have nothing against it, but I don't eat garbage. Garbage is delicious—but look at the effect, especially on American kids. It's a nightmare, huh?

On the Karl Diet: I haven't touched sugar, sweets, butter, cake, cheese—all of that—for more than 11 years, and I'm not even tempted. I'm beyond temptation. I think that's the best thing that can happen in life.

On business meetings: You know what I call meetings? Salary Justification. That's why people meet for hours. Whenever they want to talk to me, they meet for hours.
