She's a funny one eh?
"to writing pidgin English with all these terrible colloquialisms, the phrasing of which is just, like, embarrassing.'"
they haven't succumbed to degrading themselves, to writing pidgin English with all these terrible colloquialisms, the phrasing of which is just, like, embarrassing."
She is beyond parody.
", I just started asking her these bizarre questions, like what her favourite cheese was. Weird stuff. "
This girl is so fucking crazy. Out there!
especially when she claims that tabloid journalists are not "real journalists". erm...they've probably got more writing and reporting talent in their left testicle than you do in your whole body, peaches. they probably don't want to write the way the sun dictates they do but a lot of people want to read it. journalism is not all about you, you have to consider there are readers too.
are like the team of people behind Girls Aloud/Westlife/etc.
is it a good thing to have a manufactured band created just to make money ?
i don't know but there's no way to stop it. i don't read The Sun and i don't listen to radio 1 for similar reasons.
Are you saying people don't enjoy reading tabloid newspapers? [shakes head]
I found it quite a well written interview really.
thats a fucking horrible image.
most people would be the same raised in the same circumstances
Who the fuck is she kidding?
I really wish she would DISAPPEAR. Stay in the US. Puhlease.
Seriously though, I don't think she's a 'cunt' or anything, I think she's just massively deluded and doesn't seem to realise that without her parents she'd be just some other 19 year old quirky coke-fiend LDN-based University student.
Is anything she says not a cliche?
Get nakey? 'Empowering'
Writing down your experiences? 'Cathartic'
Colloquialisms? '..like, embarrassing'
The Lindsay Lohans and Paris Hiltons of this world wash right over me. There is just something about her which is more repulsive than anyone else.
Maybe it's the fact that she's a writer who can't write, a model who isn't good looking, and the daughter of two celebrities who themselves were rather pointless. And the fact that she gets a free pass, as if growing up famous makes her being a twat is inevitable - ever heard a peep out of, say, Frances Bean Cobain? Now there is a girl who SHOULD be fucked up....
and legitimise the crap them peaches does placing undo importance on everything she does and says?
for the same reason that everyone who has an inflated idea of their own common sense and intellect is... likewise everyone who talks out of their arse without any concept of [a] how stupid they sound and [b] how stupid AND irrelevant they may finally realise they sound, ten years on... and everyone who genuinely believes that what they are engaged in is like totally groundbreaking and original. studying peaches geldof's opinions is like finding the really intense diary you wrote when you were 16. she is an adrian mole for our times [and perhaps given the Heat and X-Factor-adjudicated rules of post-2000 popular culture, she is as much as we deserve in that vein.]
i think peaches is the cringe-inducing part of each one of us that we really, REALLY don't want to admit ever existed [or perhaps still does - few of us have yet become the sage beings i'm sure we all will and we are all highly capable of spouting shit]. she is late/post-pubescent cliche multiplied to the nth degree by too much attention and too much getting-her-own-way, and as such, makes for compelling yet really stomach-turning observation.
i don't like her, but she'd be a whole world less objectionable if she wasn't on the covers of the papers every day. some things just shouldn't be documented. if only she realised that herself.
she'll write an article about you and distribute it in her favourite boutiques and clubs.
she didn't really name her magazine after Less Than Zero did she? Vivienne Westwood? That is truly and honestly beyond parody
I meant to write 'I hope Peaches Geldof get's cervical cancer''
have a sit down.
journalist came across as a cunt rather than peaches imho
she was only reacting to Peaches being completely patronising. For my part, the journalist was pretty funny especially with Peaches ridiculous conceptions of journalism.
possibly a grater.
The only entry under the 'Recent Press' section is:
"What a great name for a magazine" - magCulture.com
Reading the features is a slog. It's the kind of writing style every aspiring journalist aged 18-21, thinking they've a finger on the pulse of 'cool', the collected works of Hunter S Thompson on the bookshelf, and a begrudging admiration for Vice, thinks is a unique and hip style. It's really not...
why is she so rich anyway? I mean, there's no doubt that they're not going to be on the breadline, but it's not like Boomtown Rats royalties or Paula Yate's salary salary from The Tube would make a person rich beyond their wildest dreams.
Did Bob secretly skim some of the Live Aid millions?
planet 24 for £15 million and has another production company now.
he has loads in kent
She comes across as the archetypal spoilt little madam, with a severe posho superiority complex and severe attitude problem to boot.
Vile, just plain vile.
"What about being taken seriously, though? She is obviously bright, a fan of John Cheever and JG Ballard..."
Is being a fan of authors you were told to study in your A-Level English class indicative of brightness now?
Aside from this, I'm getting a whiff of the subtle hatchet job here. Possibly down to all the 'like's being left in.
