what is the world coming to?

>> I was reading my online newspaper and sipping my orange juice this morning, when I came across a couple of snippets I just had to share --  they made me laugh and shake my head in absolute disbelief:

The Sun reports today that Kate Moss has rekindled her relationship with Pete Doherty after he set fire to his bed last weekend in a bid to show her how much he loves her. "It's been a tough few weeks for Pete," said a friend. "He split with Kate, sacked his manager and got arrested for fighting a reporter. Things came to a head at the weekend. He was so frustrated he smashed up a guitar and set fire to his bed. Kate got to hear about it and let him come and stay. She still thinks she can sort out Pete and all his problems."

Really, Kate.  I love you -- you're beautiful and a superhuman dresser, but do you have to be swayed by a man who proclaims his love by...setting his bed on fire?  I know it's romantic, but ya gotta try and resist these things every once and a while.  I have to say, I'm a little disappointed in your judgement right now. 

In other news:

Jessica Simpson, who wears only the skimpiest of denim garments in The Dukes of Hazzard, has rolled out a retail line of jeans for plus-size women.
The $59 slacks, available at Avenue stores, fit sizes 12-24, reports USA Today.
"We have people 300 lbs. or 90 lbs. come up to Jessica and say, 'I'm just like you,'" Jessica's father and manager, Joe Simpson, tells the paper, adding: "It's not about the outside. It's what's inside."

Now this concerns me for a couple of reasons.  First, why do we keep allowing a girl who coordinates hoodies, baggy cutoff shorts and platform heels to roll out the clothing lines?  Second, why is it that people want to be "just like" her?  I for one have enough time coping with one of them, but now there's clones?  Jesus.  And finally, who knew Joe Simpson could whip out such profound wisdom?  I've never heard anything like it before.
