I was watching the news this morning and CNN was discussing the death of designer Alexander McQueen.
I guess I've been out of the fashion world long enough that I had no idea who the hell he was, other than I recognize some of his crazy ass clothes.
Think Lady Gaga.
Who, other than her, would wear this crap? And Sarah Jessica Parker?
I do have to say that it wasn't always bad. He had some beautiful pieces, although they were a touch eccentric and no "normal" person would ever be able to wear them.
Such as this:
He was definitely an artist that pretended to design clothes.
Anyway, reminiscing over a designer that had the bad taste to "allegedly" kill himself is not the point of this post.
CNN said, and I quote, "Alexander McQueen went out on his own terms".
Is this how you report the tragedy of a lost human being killing themselves?
They discussed the fact that his mother died eight days ago and he must have been depressed.
Anyway, I will point out that personally, I feel sorry for anyone weak minded enough to end their life prematurely due to their own inability to deal with life. Life.
It sucks. It is hard. People die. Deal with it.
And if you can't deal with it on your own, rather than make your loved ones suffer, get your selfish ass to a shrink and figure it out.
CNN, if you actually read anything other than your own tripe and the New York Post, read this.
Do me a favor. Do not glamorize the poor schmuck's suicide. It's not glamorous.
Just ask the cleaning crew.
