LaChappelle Calls Simpsons "Everything Wrong With Culture"

The New York Daily News reports that photographer David LaChappelle, one of the last remaining people on earth about whom the word "freakazoid" can still be acceptibly applied, spewed negativity about Our Savior Jessica Simpson and her runty sidekick Ashlee.
"They're everything that's wrong with music," LaChapelle seethed to Lowdown. "Out of everything combined, they're everything wrong with culture, and everything wrong with art, and what we think of as art and musical culture - in one family!" [...]

"They're nothing. They have nothing. They hold no interest whatsoever for anybody," he sniffed. "They're reality-red-carpet, lip-synching television stars. I don't know what they are beyond that. I don't think they offer anything."

This all makes for pretty boring copy, LaChapelle saying nothing that much of America isn't already thinking. Or rather it would, if not for LaChapelle's tendency to be a total LaChapelle. Reportedly, his beef has a great deal to do with the Simpson girls turning down an opportunity to work with him on a Rolling Stone cover.

"I was only doing it because of my relationship with Rolling Stone," he said. "We were going to try and make the Simpsons look cool. I realize now that is an impossible task."
I dunno, Dave. A little more eyeliner might just do the trick.
