freedomblade a demandé: Yo did you happen to check out Lana's GQ photoshoot? If so, thoughts?
I did. To be honest I’m not really a fan of it. It was an obvious direction. The naked picture shock value is overrated in my eyes. Let’s not pretend that this society isn’t completely desensitized to anything pertaining to sex, nudity, perversion, or food. She looked gorgeous because we’re being told by people who we deem ‘important’ that certain criteria equals beauty and she hit that target (so they are telling us).
By their standards I am not beautiful, yet I feel my best just after a workout. I am sweaty in yoga stuff, chugging a water bottle and I feel like I could basque in that feeling forever. No makeup. Just sweat and endorphins.
Anyway, this is not what you asked.
I thought that she looked beautiful because that’s what magazines tell me face-value beauty looks like. I thought it predictable.
As an artist with such a clear aesthetic I was sad she went with the easy way out.
