Joan Didion Does not Care That You Care About Her Céline Ad

She was very, like, whatever, to a New York Times reporter.

And here we were, all like "Céline's decision to make Joan Didion their spring 2015 campaign star is indicative of fashion celebrities changing from social media stars to icons" – you know, imbuing the news with meaning. But turns out Joan Didion herself doesn't think it's a big deal at all.

According to Jezebel, a reporter for the New York Times called Didion, on the phone (imagine talking to Didion on the phone), to ask what sparked the collaboration, to which she replied, "They got in touch with me". Matter of fact much?

The reporter also asked whether she was aware of the online furor surrounding the ad's release, to which Didion (or in this case, the Cool as Ice Queen) replied, "I don't have any clue".

I guess when you've spent the past 60-odd years articulating the human condition via critically acclaimed piece of fictional and non-fictional work, wearing some funky shades and posing for Phoebe Philo is, like, "meh". Which of course, makes her all the more awesome, and all the more appropriate as Céline's campaign star, and, hopefully, emblematic of the kind of celebrities we celebrate this year.

Well, let us just state for the record ONE MORE TIME that we think it's amazing.
