Internet Work and Invisible Labor: Suri's Burn Book and the Celebrity Offspring Economy

This interview series aims to make the “invisible labor” of web production visible. Over the next few months, I’ll be talking with a wide variety of content producers, exploring the dynamics of their own form of web production, how they mix that production with their “real” lives, and the various forms of gratification they receive from the work that they do.

Boy Parts Are Icky!

"Recently, I took [Suri] to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time. It's for kids. The clientele is children. We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy part gummies. I was horrified. They are called p-e-n-i-s gummies and they look like it." —Katie Holmes spells out a grown-up word for Ellen DeGeneres in order to explain why Suri was photographed eating X-rated candy. : – ]
