It’s not that she’s annoying, it’s not that she seems talentless, it’s not her sense of entitlement, it’s not that she went from being poor Paula’s daughter to being unbearable, it’s the fact she has absolutely no self awareness about how rude, clueless and unbelievably lucky she is.
A senior MTV boss called her ‘a monster’ for her behaviour during a new reality show. Its got to be pretty bad when the channel that has commissioned a show off your dad then calls everything you say ‘horrendous’. (I watched she’s really horrible).
But this will not humble Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof. The self-belief and total confidence she and in fact all the other mix and match offspring (Daisy Lowe, Kelly Osbourne, Kimberley Stewart, Jade Jagger etc) seem to have is at the very least impressive. However when did these people not only get to have inherited wealth, privilege and access but also a license to fill our TV screens, newspapers and clubs?
Believe me though Peaches is crap now, that won’t stop her being given more and more opportunities and unless she’s totally stupid she’ll one day get good at being a TV presenter/writer/dj/journalist/editor/model/whatever and then the story will be that she always stood out for her talent.
The ever wonderful and talented writer Marina Hyde had this to say in the Guardian about Peaches’s new role at New York Magazine Nylon.
And because one magazine is never enough, Peaches also has her own soon-to-be-published rag, the establishment of which MTV chronicled in a new genre best summarised as coach-crash TV. Car-crash doesn’t begin to cover it.
She also links to Peaches’ column for Nylon which I can’t bring myself to link to. It’s. Awful. Really. Really. Awful.
