Hair today...


Check out Kylie’s “new do”.

Not bad, I say.

Now, I would like to call up the 431st rule of pop culture news reporting which says that:

“any female celebrity that chooses a very short haircut is secretly a lesbian and is absolutely begging for the tabloid press to print salacious rumours and sensationalist articles along these lines.”


(This comes right after the slightly related 430th rule of pop culture news reporting that says that: “any male celebrity that loses a bit of weight or looks a bit pale, and who happens not to have a girlfriend at that time, is secretly gay and has HIV, etc etc”).

Because of this I will be scanning the tabloids and women’s mags and will be the first to report to you when rule 431 comes into play (I swear, I wouldn’t normally look at those publications, it’s just for this blog you know).

I guess though, there is always the possibility that pop culture news reporting rule 12 will come into play - that being that an Australian celebrity that battles a high profile disease can do no wrong and shall be venerated and revered beyond belief. No chance of the tasty rumours in that case then I'm afraid...

I thought it was funny the way the start of the story was al about her showing off her 'impish new hair style' like she just wanted a change or a new look...

I've been scanning the gossip papers this Easter (but only because you recommended it) and looks like you'll have to scratch this one up in the tragic disease column.

I did wonder, however, why all the papers made such a fuss about attributing the photos to 'Kylie's boyfriend, Oliver Martinez.' Maybe you have the answer...

Bookman: I think you're onto something there. I had noticed the repeated and bludgeoning use of the word 'boyfriend' but must admit I hadn't given it much thought.

I did, in an act of public duty, read three trashy mags over the long weekend (and by 'read' I mean flick through them on the plane). Just about nothing about Kyles.

Shocker.

Enny: Yes, I'm sure it will be all the rage now...

Did anyone else notice that Kylie only got cancer after Dealt-a-good-rim smashed her record for most number one singles in a row by a former Neighbours starlet?

Just an excuse to copy the hairstyle I say...

Or maybe they're both macrame-making poetry reading LESBOS... together!

PS. CSH - OK if I link you?

Link away weasel, you don't need to ask.

I could never remember the name of your blog.

weasel said...

Cool. Actually, when I say 'Can I link you?', I really mean 'Why not link me?'

But then again, I am slow with these things, so don;t hurry :)
