TomKat & Madge: celebrity cons

The UK's Daily Star "exclusively" reveals today that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were not actually married in Italy at all but in LA sometime before. The paper simply lifted this from online showbiz site (which put up the story on Sunday) though the TomKat Bracciano charade had already been rumoured.

While on I notice that Madonna's latest book The English Roses: Too Good To Be True has only sold 9,000 copies in the US in four weeks. The first instalment in the series sold 350,000. This is excellent news for those infuriated by the whorishness of publishers who chase after celebrity with their hefty cheques. It's safe to say that at least 300,000+ original purchasers of Madge's children's literature felt conned and decided not to waste further money on an egomaniac's vanity works.
