What a feck-wit

September 18, 2007

Read this piece of waffle yesterday (yes I know it’s the Mail, but…) and have been stewing over it since then.

It irks me that someone whose parent had a really tragic life seems to be shitting on her memory by acting in such a way. You’d think that if your mother was a bit of a hell raiser and eventually died of a drugs overdose, you’d play a bit sensible – if not to quell your father’s sadness, but to also make sure you don’t go the same way. But, as a wise man once said, “They fuck you up, your mum and dad,” and Paula’s legacy to her second eldest, Peaches is her partying ways and wild child behaviour. She must be so proud.

I’m so fed up of seeing Peaches and her younger sister Pixie in magazines dressed as if they’ve run thru Topshop smothered in glue, with sullen expressions slapped across their perfectly smudged, eyelined faces. Here are two brats who have no idea how lucky they have it. Yes, their mother died when they were young. So did a lot of my friends’ mothers. But I never saw them with a separate apartment, going out until the wee hours aged 15, dressed like whores and hanging off stinking Pete Doherty wanabees. If anything, their fathers kept them close, and were somewhat over protective of them. These girls will never have to worry about careers or money. They have a stream of yes people surrounding them, so they’ll never be lonely.

“In New York people see me for my talent, not for my name.” Sweetheart, what talent is that then? The ability to be a not-very-good clothes horse for Topshop? The aptitude for shoplifting?? Or how about the expertise of being a self-obsessed, vacant brat who thinks they’re sooooo above everyone else. And the reason you think that, Peaches? Is because of who your dad is. The reason why you lord it around London is because of your name – so why now mourn the fact that your name gets you places? Do you think you’d be modelling during London Fashion Week if your name was Jane Smith and not Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof? Hmmmm… I wouldn’t go hot footing it to the US just yet.

    The little twat should be hung, drawn and quartered.

    She’s an unfortunate-looking little brute, is she not? Bad luck in the genetic inheritance stakes there eh?

    Silly little moo. She unfortunately has the arrogance of the young that will come and bite her on her non-modelly bum in the future. I loathe all the model agencies, publications and journalists who use Peaches as shorthand for something ‘cool’ that will make them look good. She’s just a kid with famous parents, nothing more – and maybe even something less.
