Yesterday, a story from Associated Press proved that it’s a whole lot better to keep your drug habit an open secret and blame your behavior and appearance on an eating disorder if you’re a top model and want to stay that way. After her shit hit the fan and all the tabs luridly reported the unsurprising details of Kate Moss’s massive cocaine consumption observed by hidden camera, she came clean, so to speak, and confessed that, yes, she had a drug habit. Promptly, before the coke had crusted around Moss’s nostrils, Hennes & Mauritz, a gigantic Swedish clothing retailer, dumped the model from its campaign to launch a new collection, claiming Moss was “not consistent with H&M’s clear disassociation from drugs.” We’re not really clear on H&M’s stand on the issue but will Kate go to jail?
Today’s Popbitch says that Moss’s rival agencies are writing nasty letters to companies like Chanel and Rimmel, claiming to be customers disgusted by the model’s debauched lifestyle and demanding she be dropped (so their own, lesser models can get some work). Popbitch blames the papers, “who are ecstatic about the opportunity to put a circulation-friendly beautiful woman on the cover while sanctimoniously attacking her for taking drugs and having sex.”
What scandal will they reveal next?
