Last year, Lady Gaga wrote in V Magazine a small article that made a big impression on me. She rebuked Cathy Horyn’s review of Alexander Wang’s collection and in it she basically said that the internet and blogs have taken the power away from critics.
In essence she was right, the world is a more democratic place where all points of view are consolidated on the internet for everyone to see. The critic’s power is significantly reduced because now everyone’s opinion counts.
In hindsight I thought it was pretty impressive to discount what was one of the most influential critics publicly and at the same time shed light on everyone’s power at their finger tips.
I know my commenting on a article that was written awhile ago seems dated but…. who cares.
