He said, "I was buying some groceries, and I thought I’d put on a little scarf to protect my throat, and that’s the scarf I had […] The guy who made that scarf, who you can blame that on, he made that scarf and he gave it to me. That was the day I thought I’d break it out. I had no idea there’d be paparazzi."
