Nicole Richie & Dad Lionel Cover '#Legend' Preview Issue!

Nicole Richie and her dad Lionel take the cover of the preview issue of #Legend magazine.

Here’s what the father-daughter duo had to share with the mag:

Nicole, on her relationship with her dad growing up: “My dad’s touring is really all I know. For me, that’s how I was raised. My dad would go off and work, come back and have home time. Oddly enough, that’s how my own family works now. Joel’s on tour all the time. We have our own calendar. We don’t take summer vacations when everyone else does, and we do it whenever it works out for us.”

Nicole, on being in the spotlight: “There are two sides to me. On TV, I’m very comfortable. I can be in front of the camera and I’m totally in that space and being the front person. But when I’m designing, I tend to go into a more introverted, quieter side. There are two different parts of my life.”

Lionel, on his other kids Sofia and Miles: “Nicole and I are having an issue as to when is too soon. Miles and Sofia, they want everything to happen tomorrow. Sofia has grown up with Jaden Smith. He’s her classmate. So when he has four movies out that have made $200 million, and her other friends are the Jenner sisters, she’s thinking, “Why not me?” Nicole and I are trying – but it’s difficult – to hold onto the reins of something that’s the norm in that world. In our family, Miles is the only one who’s shy. He loves being behind the scenes. Turn a camera on and he’ll find a crack in the wall.”

“She has her hands full as she needs to promote my song – sorry, her song – ‘Hello,’” Lionel said (via People). “I don’t own the word ‘Hello’ so she got away with that!”

He added, “She’s a songwriter and I’d love to be able to get in a room and just play. Don’t put any pressure on her but every time you see her just say, ‘Hello Adele, what about Lionel?’”
