Aging indie rock cool guy Thurston Moore spoke publicly for the first about the end of his marriage to ageless indie rock cool lady Kim Gordon to a UK magazine recently. And, predictably, he sounds like a dickhole.
Moore and Gordon's 2011 split killed what little belief in love remained in the jaded hearts of Generation X. But what made things worse were widespread allegations that Moore had been fucking around on Gordon for years with a much younger woman, allegations which Moore has now confirmed in an interview with a British mag. Quoth the former Sonic Youth frontman,
I'm in a really romantic place with [new girlfriend] Eva [Prinz]; we've kinda been a couple for close to six years. A lot of those years nobody was very aware of it except us. The cat's been out of the bag a while now, that's kinda where I'm at.
Flavorwire's Tom Hawking lamented Moore's admitted philandering, claiming that Moore had disingenuously presented himself as a counterexample to the dickswinging rock n' roller only to make a fool of Kim Gordon, who is still possibly the coolest woman in the world. There's also this:
It's that, by the sounds of it, he was cheating on Gordon for years, and seems to feel the need to tell the world about this. It's that by his own timeline, he may well have already been getting it on with his new love when he and Gordon appeared inBust's annual Love Issue in 2007, talking about how great their marriage was. And so on.
The timeline is also awkward from Thurston Moore's girlfriend's end. In 2009, well into when Moore and Prinz were allegedly already into their relationship, Prinz gave birth to the son of Dutch prince. So apparently Moore, a married guy, was getting it on with the pregnant girlfriend of another man and is now chatting about it with the press. The aristocrats!
Gordon, meanwhile, is contributing a piece to this weekend's Wall Street Journal magazine, and even manages to look fucking cool in her stipple drawing.
