Sex and seduction becomes mainstream

February 23, 2007

Hi Grit

You may think that sex has always been a part of art, which to a certain extent is true. However, one of our youngest london public gallaries the Barbican, having reached the ripe old age of twenty five, has taken this to a new level by hosting an exhibition called Seduced: Art and sex from antiquity to now, entrance reserved strictly for those aged 18 and over.

The intention of this exhibition is to cover the art of seduction as it has been practiced over the past 2000 years. Kate Bush, apparently no relation to the singer or your President, says that it is a “no-holds barred exhibition” the intention of which is to examine and explore all aspects of seduction of any preference. With well over 250 exhibits including portraits from the walls of Pompeii; Indian sexual literature, little known paintings of sexual acts from renowned painters such as Turner, pornographic woodcuts from Japan and Andy Warhol’s short 1963 film entitled “Blow job,” it is not difficult to see what they mean.

Although the museum stresses that this an attempt to cover a serious subject, from the final paragraphs of the article it becomes apparent that the real motive is anything but. Being a public gallary, the Barbican relies heavily on grants from the local authority, in this case the City of London. The director (curate) of the museum has admitted that these grants are being cut back, which will severely curtain their activities unless they can replace funding from elsewhere.

Thus, despite all the brave and intellectual words and phrases, at the end of the day this is not a “serious” exhibition, simply an example of an organisation utilising an age old promotional theory that “sex sells.” Why can’t they be honest about their motives?

Britney suicide attempt

February 22, 2007

Hey Grit

I know we have been following the antics of Britney over the last few months, but this latest report must be the most worrying for her family and friends as well as the girl herself. It seems that, after leaving the rehab clinic, and following on from a row with her ex over the custody of her two children, Britney tried to commit suicide by walking in front of traffic.

In my view, the time has come for someone to take a serious view of this situation. It is obvious from the laxity of the rehab centre that they are more interested in the dollar and promotion impact of having a “headline grabbing” star in their clinic than actually doing the young girl any good. At the same time everything she does appears on the media within minutes, which suggests that someone, somewhere, is feeding them with information. Thus it must appear to Britney that there is no way out of this circus and that she stands a good chance of losing the two people she loves most, her children.

Granted Britney has bought a lot of the media attention onto herself by her antics. But there comes a time when they have to sit back and consider the psychological impact of their constant hounding of her. Maybe the time has come for them to back off and leave the girl to sort out her relationship and other problems out in private. And maybe the time has come for her friends, family and other hangers-on to take a step back and concentrate on helping Britney to recover from whatever demons are haunting her.

We have already had one celebrity suicide in the last few weeks with Anna Nicole Smith. Let us not allow the press and our own insatiable curiosity lead to another one.

Sex five miles high

February 18, 2007

Hey Grit

Have you read the article about the air stewardess who was sacked for having sex in the toilet of the aircraft whilst it was in flight. What makes this incidence more newsworthy is that the male participant was Ralph Fiennes the actor. The stewardess in question, Liza Robertson, at first denied the allegation, but in a story released in the Daily Mail today, has conceded that it did happen and that she was a willing particpant. In addition, the lady further reveals that the fling continued in the stars hotel room that night, but ended after that one night.

What I find amazing about the report itself is that the reporter suggests that the stewardess should be seen as a victim because she lost her job as a result of the incident. It also suggests that the actor has “dumped” her and took advantage of a “vulnerable” young woman. There are several issues here. The stewardess knew full well that she was breaking her employment terms and therefore could have expected nothing less than the sack. Ms Robertson would also have been aware that an incident that started in this manner could hardly be viewed as the basis of meaningful and long-term relationship.

Raking up Ms Robertson’s past life in support of this image is hardly sound journalism, nor can it be used an excuse for the lady’s behaviour. Add to this the fact that the stewardess has been involved with a similar weekend fling with a passenger on a previous flight with Quantas, and the fact that no doubt the paper has paid her handsomely for her story, and I fail to see how the reporter can conceivably promote the notion that Ms Robertson is a “victim.” 

Similarly, the comment that somehow Ralph Fiennes has not helped and is somehow a villan of the piece is absurb. He did not force her to act in this manner, neither did he force her to spend the night with him at the hotel. If anything, the lady herself is the one doing the using. She has blatantly used the celebrity status of Fiennes to make financial gain out of the incident.

Ms Robertson has no-one to blame for the result of this incident but herself. Her actions have proven that she did not respect her position nor the fact that they were both consenting adults and that she willingly entered into this incident.

Danielle Lloyd gets her teddy back

February 16, 2007

Hi Grit

I noticed today that one of the alleged “bullies and racists” from the big brother house seems to be getting her life back together. Danielle Lloyd, the 23 year old model, got a surprise Valentine’s gift with the return of her Teddy (the footballer that is). She was seen out in the back seats of a movie with him on valentine night, indulging in what all young love couples do in such a location, which is not watching the film!

Knowing how partial young women are to having an old teddy to cuddle in bed, I bet this has made Danielle’s nights far more comfortable and cuddly.

At least she was wearing knickers…

February 15, 2007

Hi Brit,

Following up on, what would appear to be, our favorite subject, there is another tart to add to the exposed in public list.  This time it, Ashley Olsen shows off her underwear.  While she wasn’t actually flashing her naughty bits, it’s pretty close.  My theory is that she is going to open her own brand of lewd dance exercise studio, complete, of course, with exercise videos and a new wardrobe line.

Robbie Williams – “take that” in Rehab

February 15, 2007

Hi Grit

Yet another celebrity, this time one of the most successful on the UK music scene Robbie Williams, has scuttled off to rehab to address prescription drug, smoking and drinking addictions. Estimated to be worth around £100 million ($200 million), apparently the singer’s success, or in the case of the US market, leads to periods of deep depression. Apparently, the medical addressing of this depression has led to his drug addiction.

ROOT CAUSES

In my view, all this running off to spend £2,000 a night in a high profile clinic does not do a lot of good. This is obvious by the fact that, to stars such as Robbie, even the clinic visits become an addiction. This is not the first time he has checked into such a place. It is true that, for a while, they might be able to reduce the addictive habits, but historical statistics on celebrities proves that it does not last. Why is this, people may ask? The reason for this failure is that the therapists do not address the root cause of the problem.

The crux of the problem in Robbie Williams case can be found in ego, greed, arrogance and fear. He originally started out as a member of a highly successful boy band called “take that,” However, his ego did not like the fact that he was not being noticed in his own right, so he left to follow a solo career. To be fair to the man, this was a successful step and he soon became the UK’s number one performer. But his ego did not allow him to just accept the applause. In an effort to ensure that his foundation in the band was not a part of his new-found fame, he embarked upon a series of attacks on other band members.  The difference in character is shown by the fact that the rest of the band did not retaliate. They just bided their time.

Last year Take That reformed after a gap of over ten years. The result of this was that they became an overnight sensation. Their first new album has outsold Robbie Williams latest one by three to one as fans return to the original concept. This shows that Williams was right to fear the band that kick-started his career. However, there is more than enough room for both. It is also strange that the latest visit to the clinic follows the exceptional success that the reformed “Take That” band are enjoying. It is almost as if Williams, in a desperate bid to prove he is more popular than them, is attempting to steal the limelight away.

With regard to arrogance, Robbie Williams has this in abundance. In the UK, to keep himself in the headlines he has, as well as the above mentioned attacks on “Take That” launched scathing attacks on others who were involved in the early stages of building his career, including ex-managers and girlfriends. This has gained him few friends outside of his fan base.

His arrogance was also in evidence in his approach to the US market. Unlike other UK music celebrities, like Tom Jones, who allowed their work to filter into the US market in a gentle manner, therefore creating an environment where the US public embraced their talents, Robbie Williams decided that this was not sufficient for him. He had to storm the US, standing up and saying that he was better than what you had. If you want to offend anyone, this was a classic way to do it. Where other music legends such as The Who have treated the US consumer with respect and gained a fan base, Williams has not. Because of this attitude he has found little success in America, despite moving there.

Rehab will not solve Robbie Williams problems unless those who are counselling him start to address these deep-rooted personality problems that he has.

PROBLEMS OF A HUMAN BRAND 

Robbie Williams record company EMI, who paid £80 million ($160 million) to sign for them, are also suffering as a result of the stars actions. The expected revenue that they hoped to receive as a result of this contract is not materialising. This shows that the corporation’s management team were seriously lacking in strategy when they entered into the contract.

The biggest problem with signing a “human” brand is the organisations ability to a) monitor and control its performance; b) accurately access the value; c) evaluate the stability of the brand; and d) link the contract to performance. In all of these areas EMI management failed. In terms of a) the monitoring of performance has been proven to be lacking, and there certainly been a lack of control. With b) the value was identifable then and now as excessive, particularly bearing in mind that this was a person they were dealing with.  Similarly, the evaluation of the Robbie Williams stability factor (c) was in error, bearing in mind his previous addiction problems, and in respect of d) the performance linked element was omitted. Is it any wonder that the company is now struggling?

The final nail in the Robbie Williams saga of course, is his belief in his own publicity. The media, as we know, will dramatise anything a celebrity does and, in the case of Robbie Williams, his visits on the front pages of the media was frequent. However, he also needs to recognise that the media are just as adept at destroying reputations if it helps them sell papers.

The man needs to take a step back, value his own life, cease worrying about being better, more successful and wealthier than others, and begin to enjoy being Robbie Williams.

It’s that time again!

February 14, 2007

Hi Brit,

No, I’m not talking about Valentine’s Day.  Even better!  It’s time for Sports Illustrated to publish the Swimsuit Issue.  You’ve got to love the brilliance of the concept, a magazine full of scantily clad beauties rolling in the surf of warm tropical beaches, released right in the worst part of winter.  No wonder this one issue sells more copies than everything else they publish for the year combined.   I have to say that just the cover, featuring Beyonce in a bikini, is enough to take a good deal of the chill from the air!  You should check out the link; they’ve done it up good this year with video and photo galleries.

Britney sex secrets

February 12, 2007

Hi Grit

You can’t seem to keep Britney out of the news for long, or at least those who want to make money from being associated with her. This time it is her latest ex – Issac Cohen, who lasted for about a month. In an article in the UK News of the World, he reveals all about the star’s sex secrets, going into great detail about their antics in bed.

If it was that fantastic for them, one has to wonder why the relationship did not last very long. Perhaps it was Issac who could not stand the pace rather than Britney.

Anna Nicole Smith – Death attracts vultures

February 12, 2007

annanicolesmith_wideweb__470×3610.jpgHi Grit

No doubt you will have heard of the death of the former “UK page three” topless model Anna Smith last week, pictured right with Howard Stern, one of three male companions who claim paternity of her son. Anna’s death is being blamed, allegedly, on a drugs overdose, although this has not been officially confirmed as yet.

What I find disturbing about all this is the way the Media and Solicitors have pounced upon this news. Within hours of her death the media are setting up “ratings attracting” programmes, such as the two aired by Fox News and NBC, with fox seeing a 400,000 increase in viewers. Similarly, the Internet was immediately flooded with articles for sale and videos ostensibly of the actions of paramedics at the scene of here death. Then followed the legal fight over her estate, particular her house where, subsequent to her death, the locks have been changed twice by parties that feel their client has a right to the property. Most distasteful of all is the fight over her son, with three men claiming paternity. It seems to me like they are all trying to gain some benefit from the newsworthy aspects of the lady’s life.

It is strange how the “vulture” instinct seems to grab the public when a celebrity dies, irrespective of their views of the person when they were alive.

Paris Hilton and Michael Jackson

February 9, 2007

Hi Grit

Well the British have a view on just about anything. Recently, one of our tabloid newspapers asked their readers which celebrities they considered would make the wierdest couple. Bearing in mind all of the weird UK celebrities that we have, you would have thought that two of these would have topped the list. However, this was not the case.

The popular opinion, based mainly on their plastic looks, was that Paris Hilton and Michael Jackson would be the most unusual coupling between celebrities. Methinks it did not take a high level of intelligence to work that out!

No cover up here!

February 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

 photo14.jpg

I mentioned earlier that Paris Hilton needed to release another sex tape to take attention away from her recent bout of Politically Incorrectness.  Well, there is a new celebrity sex tape about to be released, although it only stars a friend of Paris, Vivid Acquires Kim Kardashian Sex Tape for $1 Million.  It seem, as usual, the tape was stolen and sold by a Third Party.  Even pop culture tarts of Hilton’s stature can’t sell such a thing, since that would make them actual whores instead of just sluts.  While Kim doesn’t look all that trashy in the above photo, she tramps up pretty good:

 ursulamayesfeb132cmlj7.jpg

The other amateur porn star in the flick is someone or something named Ray J.  My guess is that this is just a warm up for another Paris Porn Picture to get her back in the good standing with her Hollywood friends.  Of course, if celebrity sex tapes fall out of favor, will Kim and Paris be required to attend pornhab?

Naked Sunday Christina

February 7, 2007

Hi Grit

Yet more stars are at the “naked” thing. This time it is the pop singer Christina Aguilera. In a recenchristina.jpgt interview she revealed that she and her husband make Sunday a special “naked” day. It is a move to keep the marriage alive and interesting.

Christina confirmed that they even cook in the buff, which seems like a brave move, especially if you are preparing a roast dinner. I guess if they are worshippers the local minister and his congregation must be quite understanding as well.

However, I don’t think I will follow this craze.

Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lyndsey Lohan: Prosti-tots

February 6, 2007

Hi Grit

I think I must have come across brit_paris_lindsay_002.jpgthe only article that mentions all of the above mentioned girls in one breath. Recounting how at one time all of these girls were friends, and their ability to be able to individually or together garner fame, usually by actions or photographs that are less than tasteful, the newspaper in question reveals that yet again they have come together in a media circus.

The story is that time, in a recent issue posed the question whether the three girls have too much influence on the youth of today, with the cover asking whether we are raising a youth of prosti-tots. Surprisingly 77% agreed with this hypothesis. I find this surprising in that this must mean that the other 23% disagree. Based on internet statistics, it would seem that the lower percentage are either far more vocal and active than those who agree, or the agreeing percentage still go off and buy the papers, read the magazines and click on all the stories about them.

It’s a strange world sometimes.

Jemima Khan + Kate Moss, an item?

February 5, 2007

Hi Brit,

Beyond knickerless, could there be another side to Jemima?  The picture in this article seems to suggest it’s possible, Kate Moss kisses a girl for Charity?  One must wonder what Hugh Grant thinks of this incident?  For that matter, does Hugh have to cough up 60,000 pounds per kiss?  I know what I think of this incident, that being that Hugh is one lucky man with an enormous amount of will power, not to have jumped into the fray!  However, this does bring up a question, why aren’t our US Celebrities whoring for charity?

Britney Spears knickerless is catching.

February 3, 2007

Hi Grit

It seems like the knickerless trend started by Britney Spears is catching. The latest celebrity to get in on the Act is Jemima Khan, who decided to attend her 33rd birthday party in a PVC dress with nothing left to the imagination. This from a lady who was totally covered at her wedding to Imran Khan.

Popular opinion has it that Jemima was trying to keep her boyfriend’s (Hugh Grant) mind of his ex-flame Liz Hurley. In police terms over here they would call that entrapment!

I must be getting old because I really don’t see the point of this sort of behaviour. Are all these ladies just trying to put flesh impetous into their careers?

Paris Hilton – Racist!?!

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, Paris has, apparently, opened her mouth once too often:

PARIS HILTON SPITS N-WORD AND F-WORD: And the video proof is on YouTube.

Possible Racist Paris Hilton Video Surfaces Online

If this is true, even rehab may not fix it.  If this is true, even apologies may not fix it.  The only recourse the empty headed heiress has that may in some small way repair the damage this will do to her public image is to release another sex tape.  Who cares if this trashy twit is homophobic or racist?  The only thing people care about is seeing her naked.  So Paris, show us your tits and all is forgiven.

Pelosi’s home town drama.

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

This goes a ways toward explaining why Nanny Pelosi is, let us say, a bit confused about how much Government people really need, AIDE QUITS AS NEWSOM’S AFFAIR WITH HIS WIFE IS REVEALED.  The steamy details boil down to, the Mayor of San Francisco at one time was sleeping with his secretary who was the wife of his campaign manager, and all was fine until the wife in question confessed to her husband during a rehab program for substance abuse, after which the aide told the Mayor off then quit.  Apparently, none of the governed are upset, with the exception of the guy who quit, and the Mayor is sad that the guy who’s wife he banged won’t stay on the job.  Environment, it would seem, does play a significant role in how people turn out.

Sienna stirring something

February 1, 2007

Hi Grit

It seems like Sienna’s new film is causing a stir across the celebrity pages, and it is not about the quality of the film in general, but concentrating on one particular lovemaking scene with her co-star. Apparently, even some of the guys at the movie lot are saying that this performance was more than just acting.

Sienna’s management says it just shows what a good actress she is. Meanwhile, the two stars are refusing to comment on the rumours. Whether it is real or not, it will certainly increase the box office receipts and increase their fees for future filmwork.

I hope it was acting, because I have had enough of reality media for a while.

Kylie and a mini affair

January 31, 2007

Hi Grit

I have this question to ask. What is a mini affair? The reason I ask is because I have read today that Jean Claude Van Damme claims that he had one of these in 1994 with Kylie Minogue.

I am sure that he cannot be referring to the small car that is often and, therefore, I assume that he is talking about some romantic interlude. If this is the case then I would have thought it would be classed as an “affair”, because either one is physically involved or not. Surely there is no half-way house in these matters? On the other hand I suppose there is a chance that there little “affair” took place in the small car he is referring to, but it would seem a bit un-celebrity like.

Paris Hilton for $50K?

January 27, 2007

Hi Grit

It appears that one inventive company had the idea of of offering Paris Hilton to every male that wanted her – in the form of a lifesize blow up doll. However, their plans have received a minor setback as the lady herself has refused to endorse the product. Bearing in mind the other videos etc., that are flooding the net regarding the heiress, I find this decision somewhat at odds with her other activities.

Nevertheless it appears that the company is going ahead with their plans. Of course there is one obstacle to those wishing to indulge themselves – the price tag. $50K for a doll, whatever its capabilities, is a staggering amount and, in my view, you have to be seriously deranged to even think about it.

Paris Hilton might well be in trouble with her own career and life, but she is certainly creating a dollar bandwagon for others.
