Chloe Sevigny Hates How Instagram Is Used By Some Celebrities
Her name is Chloe Sevigny. And it’s recently come to her attentshun that some behavior on Instagram is “disgusting.” (Those videos have run on a little too long but still – classic.)
Boho chic NYC actress vintage shopper realness queen, Chloe, told Net-A-Porter that she only uses her 570,000-follower Instagram account in certain ways, and you also won’t see her promoting herself that much. She’d really much rather be taking pictures with a dirty, barely functioning Polaroid camera she found at a curio shop in Harlem for $300, then send the pics snail mail to a former lover who’s holed up in a tiny flat in Gstaad, writing poetry about the revolution. Or something. FYI Chloe, just because it’s easier, doesn’t mean it’s not as good.
Despite an Instagram following of almost 570K, Sevigny’s fans will be disappointed by the lack of outfit selfies. “I’m 42 and I’m already famous – why would I self-promote myself like that? It’s disgusting,” she says, looking duly revolted.
Ooo, ooo, I so hope she’s dragging Kardashians with that one. She also thinks that Instagram puts a “whitewash” on everything. Which filter is that – Chris Pratt wants to know.
Oh, and millennials confuse her. They confuse me, too. I never got a trophy at Field Day in elementary school. My flailing little gay kid hand messed with my aerodynamics while I was running with an egg on a spoon in the other hand and I came in last every time. Yet, the lack of an undeserved trophy never messed with my strong sense of entitlement!
When I was a teenager, your wardrobe identified who you were. There aren’t any tribes anymore; just teenagers dressing as one.”
Ms. Sevigny prefers to use her Instagram to spotlight actresses who have represented “unconventional” beauty in the past. She feels that she could be considered a part of that group. And that celebs like Rihanna get all the love while no one understands what she’s all about.
“If Rihanna was in my outfit, the tabloids would LOVE it. They have a hard time UNDERSTANDING me” was in [my outfit], the tabloids would love it,” she says. “I don’t court mainstream success, so they have a hard time understanding me. It’s impossible for me to go somewhere and not be judged.”
We understand what you’re about, Chloe. We all know at least one gal who went to art school.
