'Music' magazine speaks to experts with bizzare meaning of fire

Increasingly left-leaning 'music' magazine Rolling Stone has been heavily criticized over a quote it used on social media to preview its piece on the rebuilding the Notre Dame Cathedral after the disastrous fire.

The article was titled “How Should France Rebuild Notre Dame?" and asked various experts about the first steps in preparing the Cathedral.

Harvard University architecture historian Patricio del Real offered a bizarre meaning behind the fire.

“The building was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation,” Patricio del Real told Rolling Stone.

Why the magazine chose to use the quote as its highlight on Twitter is unclear, but it drew huge criticism and was “ratio’d” - meaning it had more replies than retweets.

Conservative blogger, Erick Erickson, tweeted the comment and wrote, "Never hire an architect who studied under Patricio del Real."

The fire broke out t the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday afternoon.

Fumes of smoke could be seen from the top of the medieval cathedral and could be seen from miles away.

Sources told Neon Nettle that sight of the flames is drawing huge crowds.

Presdient Donald Trump tweeted:

“horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.”

French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault yesterday pledged 100 million euros ($131m) to repair the damage caused to the Cathedral.

Pinault, the husband of Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek, made the announcement just hours after a massive blaze took hold of the 850-year-old gothic landmark in the heart of Paris.
