Perhaps Willy Moon and Natalia Kills are under contract to stay quiet about what really went on behind the scenes at The X Factor New Zealand. Or, perhaps it’s more fun for them to drop cryptic clues like one of the detective novels Moon enjoys reading; using cinematic and musical references to make commentary about society and shed light on their motivations in the aftermath of those infamous lines delivered to contestant Joe Irvine. In either case, their social media updates are fascinating.
Four weeks ago, Moon published a photo of The Stone Roses with the caption “I wanna be adored”. Could he have known back then his plan to make the pair the most hated-on couple in the world? Was it coincidence that four weeks later he posted an image with simply the word “Irony” on it?
