Heiress slash model, Lydia Hearst, designed 100 PUMA bags for Heatherette, and when Britney Spears asked for one of the bags, promising to be photographed with it at a Heatherette show, Hearst turned her down. Accordingly, Britney was a no-show at the show. Lydia told the New York Daily News,
I’m only giving the bag to accomplished young women who are doing something positive to affect the world around them. They are women I look up to and respect, like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway. They share the same high standards of giving back to the communities in which they live.”
Oh shut up, Lydia. Your limited number of bags are just a popularity contest, nothing more. It’s okay to make Britney feel stupid, because she deserves it, but getting all soapboxy and moral highgroundy about it when you walk nude down runways and let Tyson Beckford grope your goosebumps backstage just makes you … well … lame. At least when I stand nude on soapboxes I let everyone cop a feel, and that makes me more charitable. Now gimme a damn bag.
