JM: Not too much – I’ve been focusing mostly on my make-up line.

JJ: How’s your 3-year-old daughter Rumi?

JJ: What’s the hardest thing about being a parent?

JM: It’s mostly patience. You’re used to doing your own thing and when you have to adjust your schedule, it’s a little hard.

JJ: Does she wake up at night?

JM: Yeah, sometimes she gets up super early like 6 or 7am, but when you have kids you have super powers!

JJ: What else are you up to with eco-friendly green projects?

JM: Right now I’m developing my line, making it cutting edge and green at the same time. Next year we’ll have some cool stuff! And hopefully I’ll have a bunch of other products that aren’t just make-up. Right now it’s just me, my man Ali and two other people at my company. We’re growing a lot and it’s a serious business.

JJ: Do you have a Twitter?

JM: It’s

JJ: What TV shows do you follow?

JM: American Idol and Super Nanny.

JJ: Been to any concerts recently?

JM: I wish I went to Grace Jones, but I didn’t. I think I last saw Van Morrison! I’m so old!
