Julian Casablancas Not Happy with the GQ Writer Who Implied He Was "Anti-Brunch"
Writer Zach Baron penned a feature about Julian Casablancas for GQ, and a quote from it about the NYC songwriter not being able to deal with "white people having brunch" on the weekends really fired some people up. Casablancas got fired up, too, directing his agression at Baron. Here's what he said to the Daily Beast about it:
"God, that quote. People are mad about it! It’s so true, but I guess you can’t say it. That GQ reporter was bogus, anyway," Casablancas told He was a total part-of-the-problem yuppie guy. He was a very nice guy, but I was talking about when I dropped out of high school and when I went to study music, and he had this weird, scary, shallow grin thing going on, and then said, “Oh, I didn’t realize that until my last year at Harvard,” and we were talking about current political stuff. It went over his head. I wanted to say, “Maybe you’ll understand this in a few years,” but I didn’t. Now I wish I had.
