David Bailey Jumps on the Selfie “Masturbation” Bandwagon

-------

David Bailey

What is it with fashion icons of a certain age and masturbation this week? On Tuesday, Karl Lagerfeld told the Guardian that he despised selfies, calling them a form of “electronic masturbation.” Considering the inherent narcissism of the new age phenomenon, we think he’s on to something. And photographer David Bailey agrees. Bailey told London’s Evening Standard, “I didn’t even know what a selfie was until six months ago. I thought it meant masturbation. Although of course it is masturbation of a sort.” Wait until he finds out what else people are doing with their camera phones.
