Gossip

I remember seeing the photos of Jennifer Aniston a few weeks ago, where the tabloids were sparking rumours that she might be pregnant.


I have only just seen this article that she published via Huffington Post last week confirming that what the tabloids are saying is NOT true. I urge you to read it. She is not pregnant. But that's not the point. And its not all about her. This is one part of a much wider, ongoing discussion about the need for being less judgmental of women and the way females are seen through the lens of the tabloids.

And whilst starting off by saying that she doesn’t usually address the gossip, and she’s not officially on ANY social media platforms, she felt she needed to set the record straight.

I like this quote:

“We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own ‘happily ever afters’ for ourselves. Maybe someday the tabloids will be forced to see the world through a different, more humanized lens

Speaking of the press, I was amused this week to read via the Daily Mail that apparently the Beckham family are reportedly moving back to LA from London. Just because furniture was seen being moved from their house. Reader: if you follow the showbiz news (I read SOME of it always with a large pinch of salt), you will know that they haven’t even been here that long and are doing a large amount of controversial work on their London home – so has it not occurred to anyone that they might just be leaving their rental home and moving into the one they own when they get back from their summer holidays ?

Of course, I might be entirely wrong but Jennifer Aniston refers to these types of vicious photographers outside her home and the same can be said here.

Anyone as famous as the Beckhams or Jennifer Aniston will have accepted a long time ago that they won't be able to go anywhere without being followed. I wouldn't swap my life for theirs any day.

In conclusion, click on the following sentence:

Should I read the Daily Mail?
