Spiers vs. Sevigny

Not Britney Spears, Elizabeth Spiers.

Congrats to Elizabeth Spiers on The Kicker, her new blog for The New Yorker. Wouldn’t you know it, she’s creating controversy already.

It seems Ms. Spiers is sick and tired of Chloe Sevingy, Paper Magazine’s Obsession with her, and the umlaut in her first name. It all started with a little blurb called Paper Magazine: But What If Chloe Sevigny Dies ?. Ms. Spiers received numerous responses to her comments from a tired and weiry Paper Magazine fact checker, a co-worker of a Chloe Sevigny handler, and none other than David Hershkovits, the editor of Paper Magazine.

Welcome back Elizabeth, welcome back.
