After receiving my writer’s article, admittedly terse and loaded with disbelief I put on my surgeons gloves and eviscerated the article to the best of my ability. Saving it from ‘dogfight’ status but retaining it’s continuity of thought and exploration of events at hand.
The article- ‘Fashion Week- Celebrity, the fame game and trying to hold onto it any cost,’ basically explored what the author perceived to be a tactless attempt by Miss Shan (who we are quite fond of-see picture above) to retain and exploit what they perceived to be Ms.Shan’s shameless pursuit of fame and self promotion.
Of course I knew when we ran the article we would be in jeopardy of disrupting Ms. Shan’s admiration of us. Nevertheless I ran the story because I firmly believe in the writer’s prerogative to express their opinion even if it differed from their editors. Of course we are glad Ms. Shan understood this and still retained great faith in us. When we ran it we of course had no idea that there would also be one more person whose admiration would come into question.
Disappointed by the lack of attention given to her line or ‘inconsequential regard’ Ms.Pogosian then proceeded to reach out to us. Surprised and bemused we wondered why she had contacted us given it was Ms. Shan who was mauled by our writer.
Upset by the way she had been portrayed or in this case not portrayed she then began to seek us out and demand we retract the article or at best rewrite it. At first we looked amongst ourselves and decided she must be playing a prank and within a minute resumed our passion for fine red wine.
