Milking Cancer

Call me cynical, but don't you think Jade Goody's people are kicking themselves that Natasha Richardson careered into a tree this week?

I so wasn't going to talk about Miss Goody, I really wasn't. I was consoling myself that she was Doing Some Good with the stats that more young women are going for cancer tests, but with this new death in the limelight, I'm so over all this Mourn Porn that has become ever so slightly invasive. For instance, OK Magazine are running an all-encompasing memorial issue for Goody (Issue 666, if you please) and she's not even dead yet, and the daily coverage in the papers means that I know her medical record better than I know my own. It was like this when Diana died (and don't think for a second I'm comparing the two on that level) - now, I never knew Diana as a person, never met her; she barely made an impression on me other than knowing she appeared on innumable nasty bits of 'collectable' china looking like she was in the middle of an airbrushed stroke, so when I woke up one morning to find out that the last thing going through Diana's mind was the dashboard that August night and she was dead, the resulting outpouring of coverage threw me completely. And now the same with Goody, which is even more confusing; she was was somewhat over-exposed before, which ties in with my karmic beliefs that maybe, just maybe, after her various media-grabbing antics the whole population just thought "Will you just fuck off and the universe gladly obliged. Isn't that the oddest thing? I'm just pondering that Katy Perry better watch out, that's all.

So what is it with the human fascination with death that we must scrabble for every detail about their demise? I do it to an extent and only wish to know how they died, often skim-reading BBC News to find out how whatever d-list celeb met their maker, and whether it was on the back of a door with their belt, nob in hand. Thankfully, I've had little exposure to death over the years and so my viewpoints are thusly made up from these slight insights offered by the media. Oh and 'Ghostbusters II' where Vigo the Carpathian says that to him 'Death is but a door, Time is but a window, I'll be back'. Now, the gay little voice inside, my 'internal internal decorator' if you will, just thought that he should combine the two and have a nice set of French doors and use the remaining space for a lovely Oriental screen to hide that mark where the previous tennants had a go at rag-rolling after seeing it on some daytime makeover show.

Anyway, back to the point. I'm hoping that with this new celebrity death will just mean that the news stands will look a little over-saturated and people will just get a little tired of vicariously living the pain of other people. And it'll stop Goody's publicists peddling the painful shots of her hairless, cancer-riddled body in her frumpy wedding dress. Because, frankly, she looks like a shuttlecock.

A shuttlecock.

You'll surely burn in hell for that.

See you there.
