Is Peaches Geldof hating really about jealousy?


peachesgeldof.jpgBack to the why do we hate certain women question from earlier, maybe. I never like to be unsisterly, as you know, but it's time to fess up. I'm really not keen on Peaches Geldof. Of course, I don't know her. I imagine she might be nice in real life. But the PG that we hear about in magazines and on the telly (I'm thinking of the massively self-important moment with the Geldof girls 'hijacking' the Big Brother house back in January) - this lady I don't think I'd like to be friends with.

I think one of the more annoying things about her is her massive self-belief, which I almost certainly find annoying because it's something I wish I had (although even then it's less annoying than her hipsterishness). She's just started a column for Nylon magazine, which has been universally slated - presumably to no great concern on her part (see self-belief thing). So, what I'm wondering is, are we just jealous of Peaches, as more sisterly writer Alice Wignall reckons, or are we right to be rubbed the wrong way by her? Or maybe you love her, in which case we'd like to hear from you, too. Comments? Thoughts? Hmm?

I'm not jealous - I think she's vacuous and pointless, with no talent. Why would I be jealous of that?

Why is it not OK to dislike her? Since when did feminists have to like all women? Women are people, and there are many people I don't like, so if I don't like Peaches Geldof, why would it make me any less 'unsisterly'?

Anyway, my overarching theory is that at 19 we all think we're cooler and wiser than we actually are, and if we had all had access to the media like Peaches does, we all would have come across as wankers. Solution: keep teenagers off the airwaves.
