What a dick.
Techno music singer Moby has lashed out at Tom Cruise and his baby’s mama, Katie Holmes, for putting their five-month-old daughter on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, insisting they are using their baby as a publicity prop.
The family posed for a much-hyped 22-page spread in the October issue of the glossy publication, which was shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz under top-secret conditions. So secret that Suri Cruise had no idea what the hell was going on. Then again, she’s five months old and wears a toupee. But no matter.
Here’s what Moby had to say about Suri on his blog:
“Are you kidding me? Putting your child on the cover of Vanity Fair? Are they out of their minds? Using a child as a PR prop? Argh. In the grand scheme of things fame pales in comparison to family and child-rearing.”
“I don’t know Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, but I really cannot for a second fathom the mindset of parents who would sell pictures of their children and use their children to get better press coverage. I’m sorry, I try not to be too judgmental, but it’s gross.”
Well said, Moby. Well said. You may be a 40-year-old, hairless techno star (let’s just let that sink in for a moment), and it may be your jealousy of Suri’s hair talking… but you really hit the nail on the (bald) head with this one.
