Being Shallow

by | 16th, June 2003

‘IN summer, a young woman’s fancy turns to the hairdresser and causes her to spend £2,000 on a new hair-do.

Gwyneth Paltrow

That’s what the Mail says Kylie splashed out on her new image, which took seven hours to make real.

It makes a change to see Kylie’s face instead of her proffered backside, but for a real refreshing picture, the Mail also has a shot of George Best, reformed alcoholic and one-time footballer.

Getting in shape for the summer season of sizzling flesh, Best is pictured canoodling with his young wife Alex and getting in some miles on the treadmill.

”Three months ago, if you’d asked me to take off my shirt in a gym, I’d have told you to get lost,” says Best, now proud of his toned and tanned frame.

While we are happy for Best and Kylie, it’s hard not to be troubled by this ardent pursuit of perfection.

It’s time to accept the walking disaster that you are, put your fat foot forward and say: ”I do not care! I am Vanessa! I am all woman!”

The Sun sees Vanessa Feltz, for it is she, doing for womankind what the Hindenburg did for air travel.

The Sun even says that Vanessa looks like Gwyneth Paltrow – ”in her film Shallow Hal, that is”.’
