Doing it for the kids!
What kind of vicarious society have we become where the media think that we need to witness the death of a self styled celebrity culture whore, who’s sold their live and now their death to the cameras and the type face. I’m not here to make light of Jade Goody’s illness, because there are thousands of people living and dying with cancer who I’m sure would like to provide financial security for their families after they have gone, but they’re not in the position to be able to sell their stories to Hello magazine, because no one would give a shit about their lives as their not a so called celebrity, who found fame as a loser on Big Brother, then as a foul mouthed racist on Celebrity Big Brother. If Jades exploitation of her situation helps raise awareness of cancer all well and good(y) but that in itself will be another example of just how mindless the masses have become, if it takes someone like her to make them think. "The public gets what the public wants."
