It's not so much her now, but The NOTW's unbelievable hypocrisy in printing this. They called her a cunt most weeks she was in the public eye, and now they are treating her like Princess Diana.
Max Clifford is suddenly running Britain.
that they continued to call her a 'cunt'?
It's all unbelievably hypocritical of course but I'd rather see sympathy than scorn for a dying woman.
they didn't print an 8 page tribute and claim they love her.
but on this sort of scale? Dear Lord.
This is the most sickening thing imho of the whole thing. The hypocrisy of the tabloid press. Can we not just leave her to die in private now?
do such hilariously blatant reversals on people.
Some sympathy is good but I'm not sure it needs to be in the papers on a daily basis.
I recall they pretty much called Princess Diana a cunt most weeks she was in the public eye.
because her public image was so low and she wanted to get people on her side?
She was generally treated with contempt in the tabloids. Mere days before her death there were photos of her on a yacht in a swimsuit and the Mail was tearing her fashion sense to shreds. Newspapers also had a habit of calling her a hussy.
I'm wrong aren't I, she's not going away.
Jade will be the new Diana, Queen of Hearts.
so long as she's cremated, anyway
deserved every moment
This isn't about Jade Goody. This is about the tabloid press.
I find it sad that a woman id dying of an incurable form of cancer, leaving behind two young sons. And I understand that she wants to earn as much money for them whilst she is alive. Whether it is spread across the media or not, I can understand.
What I cannot stand now is that shitrag the news of the world printing an 8 page tribute to Goody, entitled 'Our Jade'. This is coming from the same paper who condemned her week in week out. The hypocrisy is off the chart.
I'd say that the majority of people that saw her on the last Big Brother were pretty satisfied with the reaction she got when she came out. I'd say that most people would've been pretty satisfied that she would find it difficult to live in the public eye again after the way she was acting. Watch those clips again if you can be arsed - it's genuinely uncomfortable viewing. She revealed herself to be quite a horrible person
But, the 'public' seem to have forgotten about all that now and forgiven her. Some clever PR and a couple of very high profile charitable stunts later, everything's fine. I'd say that before any of this cancer stuff, the public perception of her had already swung back into the 'favourable' column. I still very cynical of her, and think she's as vacuos as they come, but there you are
Tabloids will be tabloids. We shouldn't be surprised by how they act, and let's face it, this is a dream situation for them - they'd be idiots for not milking it as much as they can. Fuck knows how, but Jade Goody still sells papers. More fool us for placing her on this pedestal and going along with it all
You buy the News of the World and you get what you deserve. I don't even mean that in a snotty, "eugh, plebs and their celebrity human interest stories" way. A tabloid like the NotW caters to a demographic who enjoy such sentimental pap. If the sort of phenomena which Goody has become doesn't sit well with you, why would you buy or read a paper that exploits it?
*Not you as in you olegrich either. Just you generally.
and I know I shouldn't be surprised by any of it at all, but still, this is beyond anything I have ever seen, possibly including Diana.
SHE IS DA QUEEN OF R HEARTS, SHE MAY BE GON SOON BUT SHE IZ GOIN TO LIV 4EVA IN ALL OF US!
LONG LIVE DA QUEEN
R.I.P JADE WE WIL MIZZ U!
