Speaking of Never Changing

Elizabeth Wurtzel refuses to grow up. I don't know about you, but I find something oddly reassuring in that. In a piece in The Atlantic, Wurtzel explains that the reason she looks so damn good and can party in Williamsburg with 20 year olds, despite being twice their age, is because she just won't grow up. She says what she wants and she "Solves most problems with duct tape." She is, she readily admits, very self-involved. And you know what? She is. But who cares, really? She's not hurting anyone with her self-involvement. And more and more, I've come to believe that as long as you're not hurting anybody else, do whatever the fuck you want. Elizabeth Wurtzel should just keep on being herself, with her duct-taped together life.
