I was recently perusing that weekly news magazine called Newsweek, when I came across a page that attracted my serious attention. In the January 21 issue, back on page 83 we find a page entitled Newsmakers.
Expecting stories on the movers and shakers of the world, I was surprised that the faces and names were unfamiliar. Clay Aiken? Mischa Barton? Nicole Kidman? At least I’ve heard of Nicole Kidman. She acts in movies, doesn’t she?
Over half the page is dedicated to a hard hitting journalistic effort, interviewing this Clay Aiken guy. Apparently Mr. Aiken is historic in that he is some sort of “American Idol crooner.” Here’s a few examples of the tough questions Newsweek posed to Aiken:
Did you know your socks don’t match?
Stay away from Joan Rivers (that’s not even a question)
Do you think the Claymates will come see you?
Do women throw their underwear onstage?
How did you get into a fight with that lady on a plane?
No powder puff interview there. No sir. There’s news I can use!
The one question that piqued my interest, was the one concerning women throwing underwear on stage. Do they take it off right there? In the theater?
In case you were wondering, as I was, Mischa Barton, whoever she is, had a DUI in December. Another drunk celebrity? She does apologize however, claiming, “I don’t know what to say about it except I’m not perfect?”
Like totally newsworthy.
Finally, Nicole Kidman is a news maker because she quit another movie. OK.
And that, dear readers, is the news.
