This interview will make you puke for several reasons.
Firstly, it was clearly done via e-mail — the “ridiculously talented” thing pops up again, and all her usual canned explanations and phrases — and it burns me as a reader when a publication, online or otherwise, doesn’t make that clear. Nobody talks like this when they’re having an actual conversation. Chicky here had plenty of time to formulate her self-aggrandizing answers, and that’s a far different kind of interview than one done in person or even voice to voice, when the interview subject doesn’t have hours to prep answers. It’s dishonest journalism.
And then, of course, there is her insistence that she’s SO fascinated in a wide variety of weighty topics. Really, Cupcake? Because it seems to me you’re interested in two things: Your heinous hair, and trying to snag a boyfriend and/or have people believe that many Harvard graduates want to BE your boyfriend. That is your entire existence, period.
Also — another reality show? Please. What, about bad dye jobs?
I also find it strange that she goes on about the cutting-edge brilliance of blogging when she told a correspondent just the other day that she really doesn’t give a shit about her blog anymore, and no longer considers it part of her “business.”
To summarize, this interview is a pretentious piece of crap, with not a single tough question asked as Julia sat typing away, probably over a few days’ time, with her thesaurus at the ready. Tool.
