I wrote a piece for VICE on Bebe Zeva and BEBE ZEVA, the film Tao Lin and Megan Boyle directed of the almost famous Internet personality. Tao Lin called her a "genius." A genius! Read here. Decide for yourself.
The piece has some imaginative comments. Take these examples:
"..." says: I really hope virtually everyone involved with this article dies young. And I don’t mean “bad lifestyle, middle aged heart attack” young, I mean “flowers laid against a wall, photos tied to lamposts” young.
"Republik of Mancunia" says: Heres a thought why not follow someone useful and of interest like a childrens cancer doctor or street cleaner. In fact why not just turn over the whole of Vice to the street cleaners.
"workingclassfuckup" says: Cuntpuppets!
"Hoppy Harry" says:
I dunno… it’s in the language she uses.
“I try to prove myself on the internet by like getting friends like that,” she says.Who the fuck talks like that in real life?
"JL" says: Fuck celebrity, fuck virtual success. Fuck the entire internet generation, with their entire lives mapped on Facebook from birth to death.
