Sue Carroll’s column is not a sickening spectacle
Everybody’s favourite columnist (but not ours) Sue Carroll demonstrates all the bitterness only a woman can address to another woman in her latest column, “Baby-buying Madonna is a sickening spectacle“, on the online website and on the front page of the UK Mirror today.
Now, as all publicity is good publicity as they say, our first reaction was to simply ignore her article filled with cliche, prejudice, misinformation and mediocrity. But we have to admit, this column of hers is a great read.
If you are able to overcome a first flush of vomit – because that will be your first reaction – Sue’s piece will end up being refreshing and cosy.
When you don’t need to be praised or aknowledged, when you look for anyone’s approval but the law’s, when you don’t simply care about what people say but to what you believe in, the more harsh the critics are, the biggest strenght they will bring back to you.
So please take our suggestion and discover why Mrs Carroll believes that “Madonna’s arrival in Malawi to ‘adopt’ yet another poor child is the latest example of a new breed of showbiz imperialist who preys on the misfortunes of nations too impoverished to resist.”
See a smile starting on your face when you read her saying that “this increasingly desperate woman is unable to do anything – let alone adopt another poor child – with an iota of dignity or decorum.”
And then she will make your day when she will tell you that she is worried by what Madonna does once she gets her hands on the doe-eyed little girl with a beguiling smile and answer is to surrender her new charge to the Kabbalah faith and an army of nannies while she rushes off for a course in Ashtanga yoga before lip-synching her way through another money-spinning tour.
Because you know, there’s no great piece of British journalism if you don’t state that Madonna lip-synchs.
