I was just surfing about and for some knucklehead reason I came across the Sun and this "news":

Quote:
COLDPLAY star CHRIS MARTIN has revealed he used to worry he might be gay — until he realised he loved BOOBS.

Chris, married to Hollywood beauty GWYNETH PALTROW, fretted about his sexuality in his teens because a strict Christian upbringing made him think sex was wrong.

The 31-year-old told Rolling Stone magazine "I grew up with was, if you even think about boobs, you’re going to hell.

It was drilled in — they’re wrong.

But let’s face it, they’re fantastic."


I mean come on. As right as he may well be, why do they print this and who actually reads it. (Apart from, er, me, this morning).

Perhaps we could post other important news stories as they break.


Hi ladies, do you like my avatar?

How about that fellow in Australia who axed his wife and two grandkids to death and injured his daughter?
The word "Lisp" has an "s" in it...
That's harsh.

or the 3 families who have been in the news lately for living in squalid conditions with loads of kids...some of the kids were ill and starving and others were actually left abandoned to fend for themselves.

I struggle to get my head around this kind of thing. Why would someone not feed thier children? (and we do not have the excuse of extreme poverty in Australia - there are ALWAYS options for our kids in this country)...what makes a grandfather snap and axe murder his wife and his grandchildren and attempt to murder his daughter?

I think it is easier to read about Chris liking boobs.

Then it would fall into the "New Idea" or "Womens Day" magazine category. New Idea is more commonly called "No Idea" because of the crap they publish!

I once read that Coldplay produced music for medium level dull people. There is nothing medium level about my dullness.

Here is a full report (yes this is ALL of it) from todays Mirror:

Quote:
Simon Cowell has banned Alicia Keys' ever-popular songs from American Idol.

A (not very) distraught Alicia says: "At first he stopped people singing Falling, but now none of my songs are allowed!"

Shame.


Bet you're glad you knew that. Phew.
That's a smashing blouse you've got on

The Wintour of discontent: Vogue editor caught wearing SAME dress THREE times in a week...

The infamous editrice of American Vogue has a wardrobe to-die-for and the collections of the world's top designers at her fingertips - yet she recycled the same outfit three times in one week. Has the credit crunch affected even Anna "Nuclear" Wintour?
