2013 was an odd year, full of many truly bizarre interviews and celebrity profiles. A fashion magazine profile can be a wonderful thing, and here at The Gloss we read a lot of them. During this year, a lot of the things fashion people said stuck out as particularly noteworthy, mainly for their utter cluelessness and self-indulgence. As 2013 winds to a close, let’s look back on some of the most entitled, bizarre, and out of touch things famous people have said over the past year.
“There’s much more to life than all of these possessions and everything. And if you want those things, you’re going to have to work yourself, just like I did.”
“I would say everyone has to start from the bottom, to get where they want to go and work on things they don’t really care about doing.
“So I had to do that for five years. I had to work on something that wasn’t really a passion for me just because I wanted to be able to get here, so when I was older I’d be able to just do what I want and not have to work for money.”
“I don’t think people understand. They all think we should shut the fuck up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be great.
What people don’t realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those 10 kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you’re being bullied by millions of people constantly.”
“I’m totally weird. I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes. For me to say I wasn’t a genius, I would just be lying to you and to myself.”
This one is already being printed on T-shirts.
There are always so many from Gwyneth. From “I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-A-Soup” to describing her design credentials as “I think of myself as a woman who is a lover of beautiful things.” She always gives us a few great ones. This year, our pick goes to her insights about how dinner parties are great, but only in Europe because Americans are the worst:
“We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature – all this peppered with really funny jokes.
“But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh, my god! Are those Juicy jeans you’re wearing?’ and I thought, ‘I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe.’”
“I’m very aware that when my friends and I sit around over dinner these days, the conversation invariably turns to how crass the world has become. Tweeting? It’s one of the silliest things ever.
He probably goes to Gwyneth’s fancypants European dinner parties.
“I never said that [Adele] was fat. I said that she was a little roundish; a little roundish is not fat. But for such a beautiful girl–but after that she lost eight kilos [17.6 pounds] so I think the message was not that bad.”
“We don’t want anyone to know I eat,” she said. “Why ruin that?”
“I don’t wash my own hair, unless I’m at some kind of boot camp or on safari.”
“Sometimes women without taste wear our dresses in a vulgar way.“
