Memo to feminists: L’Wren Scott’s main claim to fame was being Mick Jagger’s girlfriend

March 25, 2014

My latest blog post for the L.A. Times:

When L’Wren Scott, 49, was discovered to have apparently committed suicide on March 17, the main thing that her death made headlines for was the fact that she had been Mick Jagger’s girlfriend for 13 years.

News outlets have been catching feminist flak ever since.

But you know what? The main thing that most people, whether inside or outside the media, know about L’Wren Scott is that she had been Mick Jagger’s girlfriend for 13 years.
