Those Celebrities!

Maria Sharapova bill board

A rather intriguing celebrity endorsement that I have become aware of is the Maria Sharapova Tower in Gurgaon, an industrial mega-city outside Delhi.  Celebrities just aren’t governed by the same rules as the rest of us.  A tennis player can become an interior designer, pop stars can moonlight as fashion designers and perhaps one day we can call on celebrities to read out wills or perform surgery.  If you’re famous you don’t seem to need any formal qualifications or experience.

Would you live in a high rise apartment bock that had been endorsed by a celebrity you admired?

The website for this property company seems to have been spoofed or it’s just shockingly bad:

” Good news for all those enthralling and diehard fans of MARIA SHARAPOVA

Brad Pitt Acts Like Brad Pitt: Fails

Life is easy when you’re good looking.  I remember when Brad Pitt first stumbled on to our screens in that Levi’s ad and my jaw dropped.  So why couldn’t he act himself in the Chanel No 5 advert?  Wooden at best, his performance is cringing and his goat beard makes me feel itchy.

An Age-Old Question

A rumour on the entertainment circuit is that 26 year-old Mary-Kate Olsen is dating 42 year-old Olivier Sarkozy a relation of the former pint-sized French president.  Is this too big a gap or does the gap depend on the decades in question?

When I was 18 I dated a tall, blonde and handsome 25 year-old Norwegian.   Although

Tough Love

Despite having been beaten by him, international pop star Rihanna described Chris Brown as the love of her life in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

I Wanna Feel the Heat With Somebody

It was so shocking but sadly not surprising to learn of Whitney Houston’s death over the weekend at only 48 years of age.  Her back catalogue of songs marks so many milestones of my life.  I Wanna Dance in particular is a favourite

Sticky Fingers

British celebrity chef, Antony Worall Thompson was caught shoplifting cheese and wine from his local Tesco and has been given a police caution.  Shame, shame we know your name.  In his released statement he talks of getting treatment.  Is shoplifting an illness?  I am not aware of this.

Operation Modelhut

Sounds like a plot for a spoof but this was the name of the peace settlement that COCO CHANEL thought she was helping to broker during World War 2.  Did someone check her temperature?  She was a fashion designer with powerful friends, including Winston Churchill, but a peace broker – what a laugh.

Unfortunately some of the other revelations

Millionaire’s Row

The pretty daughter of a millionaire made headlines yesterday as one of London’s scum-of-the-earth looters.  Shocking, yes, but is she not following in the glamorous footsteps of her potential role models that the media helps to promote?

The Legacy of Sathya Sai Baba

The recent death of Sathya Sai Baba has evoked many of his devotees to speak up in his defence. To millions he is their saviour. As one follower put it “He is God himself”. To cynics, he is just a very successful orange robed conman preying on the vulnerable to build his $9billion empire. This is only an estimation as no true valuation can take place – he did not have a bank account!

So who is Sathya Sai Baba?
