Until just now

I had no opinion either way about Kate Thornton. In fact as I don't watch the X Factor I wouldn't have known her if I passed her in the street. I think I would know her now though having just seen this truly bizarre article. If I did see her now I would be inclined to give the girl a great big hug and tell her not to let the bastards get her down and that she is bloody gorgeous.


One wonders just exactly HOW perfect any woman would have to appear NOT to get slagged off for looking 'frumpy' by that well known paper aimed at female readers - The Daily Mail.


Wednesday: Today it is Elle McPherson's knees which are causing the Mail angst. Last week they did the nation a service by drawing our collective attention to Victoria Beckham's dirty ear.



What will tomorrow bring?

Don't know what nonsense they chose to highlight yesterday but today they feature Tilda Swinton's bunion for reasons known only to the Mail's editorial team.

How can they call that no make up? In the close up she at least has mascara and eyeliner on. OK she's not dolled up the way she is on TV but she still looks nice.

I have to say that I don't like her and find her irritating and am glad that Dermot O'Leary is presenting the X Factor now as he seems much more genuine.

And I thought from her name that she was the woman going out with Prince Wills..... but then I lead a sheltered life!

Ah Karen - how can any self respecting woman go out the house without first plastering herself in make up?

Pixie - not so much that you lead a sheltered life - more that you lead A life!

The knees - well her legs need a bit of moisturiser but I'd hardly call her knees knobbly. I would love to have legs, and knees, like that

Tomorrow will bring more of the same shit.Perhaps one day society will move on from caring about what people on TV look like and care more about saving the environment or caring for flood victims in India (who don't even get mentioned on the news because all the TV cameras are in America)

Karen - it is pretty good going that the Mail managed to critise those particular legs.

Gill - depressing but true.

Jay said...

I hate the way the media does this. I really hate it.

Perhaps there should be a rule that for every picture they post criticising a celebrity's appearance, they must include a picture of themselves, with the same area highlighted and magnified?

Oh yeah, and the picture should be chosen by the celebrity they're slagging off.

That should stop them!

Jay - I like your idea very much. Obviously the writers of this rubbish are pictures of perfection and we mere mortals could learn a lot from them.
