Today in news you’d never thought you read, Pamela Anderson has written a poem about her rumored lover Julian Assange. The Wikileaks founder, Ecuadorian Embassy houseguest and subject of “Risk” has a vocal defender in the former “Baywatch” star, who sounds none too pleased with Laura Poitras and her new documentary.
Among the choice lines are “I don’t think Wikileaks is sexist, / I think it is intellectually elitist” and “I have to say it a lot of this / ‘feminist’ discussion is intellectually retarded.” Once Anderson begins sharing her thoughts on Poitras, who won an Oscar for “Citizenfour,” her poem turns into more of an essayistic screed: “Her exploitation of this access and the judgmental lines that she ended drawing from it are both logic and sad for her.”
Said verse is accompanied by a black-and-white photo of the apparent couple, their blonde locks blending together as only those who share a love for political transparency (and totally aren’t in the tank for Putin, Trump, et al.) can. Read “We have more than – A ‘Romantic Life’ -” in all its entirety here and prepare to have a new favorite poet.
