Julia Fox is a ‘real-ass bitch’ in a sea of ‘phony, social-climbing clout-chasers’

Julia Fox is still around. While Julia was “famous in New York” for many years, most people didn’t really figure out who she was until she dated Kanye West for about six weeks this year. It feels like a lifetime ago, honestly, but Julia and Ye got together on New Year’s Eve and their relationship lasted up until this year’s Valentine’s Day. Some said that was Julia’s fifteen minutes of fame and now she could shuffle off back to New York. Julia refused. Julia is still trying to force everyone to pay attention to her. Julia covers the latest issue of ES Magazine and the interview is just… completely bonkers. I mean, I don’t hate the woman. She’s fun and she doesn’t take any of this seriously, but please stop interviewing her! My God. Some highlights:

She’s always loved fashion: ‘I remember being young and poor and really loving fashion. I would steal the magazines from my lobby that would go to other neighbours who had subscriptions to Vogue or whatever, and I would cut them up and make collages. But it just seemed so inaccessible, so far away. Now that I have the stage, in terms of fashion, I want to show that you don’t need everything head-to-toe Balenciaga. And if anything, all those designers are ripping off the kids who are in their f***ing room cutting sh-t up and pasting it together.’

Whether she’s doing this for comedy, for humor: ‘If there is, it’s not intentional. It’s just who I am. My approach to being famous is not that serious. If you’re gonna be famous and be inauthentic, people are gonna see that. Right now, you have to be a real-ass bitch in a sea full of f***ing phony, social-climbing, clout chasers.’

Her relationship with Kanye wasn’t some setup: ‘That’s such bullsh-t,’ Fox says, chuckling at the prospect of her dating life being orchestrated by a publicist. ‘He got my number through a mutual friend, period.’

There was ‘a good amount’ of romantic spark between them but Kanye had issues: ‘I was just going day by day and seeing where it went. It was just like, he still wants to hang out with me today, let’s do it. And then real life set in and the lifestyle wasn’t sustainable. I couldn’t fly away once a week. And I tapped out at the first sign of a red flag. The unresolved issues that he was dealing with. It just seems like he had a lot to work on, and I just don’t have time for it, or energy. I don’t have the bandwidth or emotional capacity for it. I’m proud of myself for that. Pre-Valentino Julia would have definitely stuck it out and been there for longer.’

The F–k Men Era: ‘I’m in my f*** men era. Or, f*** the patriarchy, rather. Because I know men are victims of the patriarchy as well. But I’ve realised since having Valentino that women really do get the sh-t end of the stick. That was a revelation for me. I always thought stay-at-home moms didn’t work. But it’s domestic labour that goes uncompensated and also never acknowledged. It’s a thankless position to be in. Women have always worked the most. Even when we were cavemen, most of the communities survived off 80 percent of women’s foraging. The men would go out hunting, but rarely did they catch something. We’ve been carrying men for thousands of years. And that’s why now I’m saying, get off my f***ing back.

Famous men want her: ‘Men approach me all the time, like, famous men. And there’s something in my head that’s like, don’t do it. Because there’s more for me. If I go down that route, I know where that goes: into submission, into surveillance, into jealousy and insecurity. I want to shine. And I know that most relationships I’ve gotten into, men have dimmed my shine, big time. I’m so susceptible to that, and I’m old enough now where I cannot repeat my mistakes over and over.’ She says she isn’t currently dating because ‘there’s just nothing for me there. Maybe in the future, if I want companionship.’

Toxic masculinity. ‘Usually abusive men are just sad, broken men, or closeted gay men. How sad it must be, to be in the closet and feel like you won’t be enough of a man if you’re gay! That’s the patriarchy, though. And I’m a boy mom, so I think about that all the time, 24/7. How am I going to teach my son that he can be dangerous? And that he’s super f***ing privileged?’

She’s not doing Real Housewives of New York: ‘They called, but I told them, I’m just not really there yet right now. But maybe in the future… I would only do it if it could be me and my friends on it.’

She’s already losing interest in the fame game: ‘I’m already losing interest in being famous, to be honest….the press, and just being famous. It just is getting old. It’s very intense, people stopping me all the time, people wanting photos, it’s like, ay yi yi, what did I get myself into? But for right now, I’m going to ride it out and see where it takes me. Either way, it’s a great position to be in. It’s a luxury problem. I’m not going to complain. I’ll show you, how about that? I’ll stop telling you and I’ll just show you.’

While I don’t watch RHONY, I think she would be fun on that series. Just Julia, trying to gatecrash everything in New York or hanging out in her apartment in her sad dominatrix gear. As for what she says about Kanye… I don’t doubt that there were tons of red flags from the very first moment. I don’t doubt that Julia was just along for the ride, having fun and loving the attention. But I also think Kanye dumped her, not the other way around. What else? I don’t know – it’s honestly like she’s trying to deconstruct modern celebrity to show everyone how stupid it is.
