Jordan shows grim truth of celebrity culture

By Jane Graham

If a third of the things currently being written about Jordan are true she is turning into a modern tragedy.

Is there anyone whose life, emotional state, family situation and now, physical appearance, better reflects the gruesome results of over-consuming all of the worst aspects of the culture around them?

Her body is uneven after numerous ‘correcting’ bouts of surgery, her marriage appears unbalanced, power-based and cold, her emotional state seems turbulent to say the least, and new pictures this week show a face bloated and lop-sided after too many cosmetic procedures. Her whole life is becoming a salutary parable, the kind of fable we tell our children in the hope that they will be appalled, and thus, guided, by it.

One can only hope that the ‘dream wedding’ Jordan is steering her unwitting victim — sorry, husband — into next month doesn’t turn out to be the nightmare finale of a truly Grimm fairytale.
