oh, honestly
Anne Helen Peterson, promoting her new book “Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Sex, Deviance, and Drama from the Golden Age of American Cinema” (x); emphasis mine
The advice that I always give to people as fans and as readers and as people who want to be feminist in the way that they gossip, or to be progressive, is instead of believing everything that they read, see it as “how is this a mediation of an image?” See gossip as part of an image and part of a strategy. Once you can take that step back, you can be really mindful about the way you think about these stars.

For example, Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton’s pregnancies. The coverage of those was so – they tried to contrast them. Kim’s body was always out of control, and she was popping out of her dresses, this unruly woman. And Kate Middleton was perfect, in-control femininity. If you can see that for what it is and how the press exacerbates that comparison, and what might be at stake there, I think that’s a much smarter and empathetic way to think about celebrity. ❞

"When they don’t love you the way you want to, you mourn that for however long you need to. But then you get back up and you remind yourself. You are not a reflection of the people who can’t love you. You will love again. You will be loved again." - Caitlyn Siehl
