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.

Well, no they don't.  And neither do athletes or politicians or Wall Street CEO's.  But that's the world we live in.

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.

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.

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.

Relatively Obscure: /*zip*

Funny you should say that, considering her mommy founded ZipCar and all.

(And just sold it to Avis for $500 million)

((No, mommy is not hot. Tall, though.))

megarian: megarian: 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.

I am accepting donations for a boob job to draw attention to world hunger, worker's rights and fixing America's education problem.

Holy crap I should have hit "preview".

Models are boney.  Pelvic thrusts should not result in bone on bone trauma.  Eat a sandwich.

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.
