This week’s Popbitch has a few tidbits about that insufferable Brit I[dio]t girl and socialite, Peaches Geldof:
“I mean, you’ve seen some of the people I’ve dated in the past! I’m not the type of girl who will chase after a Brad Pitt look-alike. I like intelligence.”
It’s a commendable stance, but let’s see how Peaches’ claim holds up with the following ex-boyfriend exhibits:
Donny Tourette: Lead singer of Towers of London; smells “like a brewery.”
Jamie Reynolds: Bass guitarist for The Klaxtons; broke a leg while stage-diving over grass.
Faris Badwin: Lead singer of The Horrors; desperately needs haircut; unaware of dating Geldof.
So, “intelligence” really means “indeterminate indie musician idiot,” who also, presumably, has “easy access to drugs.” Hell, we haven’t even gotten to her mistake of a husband yet.
Then, we have evidence of Peaches’ lack of professional decorum:
For some bizarre reason MTV decided to get Peaches Geldof to edit a magazine, Disappear Here, for them. Someone involved with the show tells us about how bands were chosen for the magazine. To most suggestions Peaches would reply, “What? They’re not even on my boyfriend’s myspace friends!” The only bands deemed acceptable – you’ve guessed it – “one of my boyfriend’s myspace friends”.
So, to all those people who now argue that MySpace is irrelevant… well, I guess you’re right about that.
