Intro for July 23, 2015
Right now, I love them all. I love that they can’t f-cking help themselves. For all their weak accusations about the media creating drama that’s not there, I love that they’re the ones creating it for themselves. As usual.
But what about the publicist? It used to be the publicist’s job. Before Facebook and Instagram and Twitter, there was a buffer between whatever it was that a celebrity wanted to say and whatever it was that they ended up saying. Now, as artists claim to want a more direct line between themselves and their public, the publicists can only stand by and face-palm. And cringe. Because, as we’ve seen so often, most of the time, people who are famous don’t make good decisions in conflict. Gossip is grateful for it.
Yours in gossip,
