Well, no they don't.  And neither do athletes or politicians or Wall Street CEO's.  But that's the world we live in.
 
2013-02-18 12:16:11 AM  
Yes they do. They're models. It's their goddamn job.

I think the athlete comparison is fair, b/c the career shelf-life is about as short. Politicians and Wall Street CEOs can fark up the rest of the world for years and years.

That's nice, honey. Now shut up because we're losing the sun.

Being a breathing coat-hanger is a great job if you can get it, but media sure loves the darling tall/slender/white angle.
I think the main part of her article is you can't study hard, be dedicated, and with luck become a model. You're born into it or you aren't.

Not sure if all this media attention to this is her attempt to assuage guilt from all the money she's made, or if she's genuinely astonished with how easy her life has been.

Advice: Those of us down here in the mud don't like hearing the well-to-do complain about how clean their clothes are.

Last month she gave one of the least interesting TED talks I've ever watched.

I watched the video she's referencing, and she's pretty self-aware for a model.  The only irony is that her attempt at making herself look ugly at the beginning just makes her look hotter.  She should have gotten a hairy face mole or something.
 
2013-02-18 12:24:02 AM  
That was actually a pretty good little read. She sounds like an intelligent, decent person trying to make good decisions and find her place in the world. Didn't expect that at all.

If you're hot and can get people's attention and funnel that attention to ideas and people that can actually /do/ something (except PETA...fark that you model PETA whores), more power to you.

many people hit the jackpot at birth. they did nothing to deserve or earn it but they were blessed with a dynamite singing voice, an incredible IQ, whatever. i think some attitudes go sour when they find themselves in the spotlight, huge money is being thrown at them, everyone wants to pay for your dinner and all the pretty ladies want to touch your no-no parts. it's got to be hard to stay grounded when all those around you are treating you like a God.

Yeah, it kinda went in a slightly different direction than I expected. It sounds like she's quite aware of the attention she gets and wants to know how she can use it to serve a goal greater than self-interest.

You know, that's not a bad idea - perhaps there should be some sort of kickstarter-like .org startup ~ models4causes or some such, as a clearing house for the beautiful people to promote stuff the rest of the world needs attention too...

And if you don't capitalize on it, it's almost an insult to those of us who go through our whole lives waiting to die and reincarnate into privilege.

Athletes might have certain genetic "gifts", but that doesn't get them to the top of their field.  CEOs and politicians deserve and get the attention they receive because the decisions they make can have national or even global impact.

It's cute when someone in their mid 20s wakes up and realizes that life is unfair.

Also cute to read a bunch of Farkers drawing a big gap between her "privilege" and their perceived lack of it. The difference between her privilege and ours is minuscule. The real privileges are being alive, with basic human comforts in a free society. Everything else beyond that is subjective.

Or, tl;dr...First world problems.
