Is it just me, or is there something
dreadfully bizzare just off with this whole thingie?
The Gothamist thinks so.
So seriously, am I off my rocker being sort of suspended in disbelief?
Here’s the behind the scenes video from Elle.com, which was even weirder…
I don’t know about you, but I think they look really hot.
I’d respectfully disagree. I love a lot of Annie Leibovitz’s work and what I see here is maybe not the most impressive in any way, err, shape or form, but I find it consistent. Her art/work always depicted the “reality” of celebrity life in a very staged and artificial way. And when it comes down to that and with some historic myopia applied I don’t see a significant difference between a highly photoshopped Queen Elizabeth in full regalia, a drugged up Keith Richards or a bunch of chunky reality-TV girls who are a cultural phenomenon whether we like it or not.
And if this helps Sears to sell some cheap high heels from a pseudo-fashion line and makes Ms. Leibovitz enough doe to pay her mortgage I don’t have a problem with it. And since we’re having a serious discussion about the thoughts and emotions the whole thing provoked it may even qualify as art in a good way.
