Hi Cheffie

To answer a couple of your points:-

'' We've all done things that would make good tabloid fodder if only we were famous, rich or in the public eye for some reason.''

:- Quite , the fact is that people who aren't rich/ famous/ in the public eye (the general public) have a fascination with how the 'other half live'. To be fair people who are in the entertainment business and therefore make good 'tabloid fodder' court publicity and pay p.r. people to make sure they do get those column inches. Of course we've ALL done things that'd make the red tops, but they don't because we're not famous (or interesting.) 

""But who cares?''

:- Millions of people care, if these things didn't sell, people wouldn't write them.

''There are more important things in the world.''

 :-Yes, there are, but, this is a thread on angloinfo, not a forum on modern theology

......cue....debate on the state of modern society.......

''We're all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars''

It's the famous Scoop!! I think it's none of yours or anyones business what anyone gets up to. We've all done things that would make good tabloid fodder if only we were famous,rich or in the public eye for some reason. But who cares? There are more important things in the world.

I understand the gossip business is BIG. Don't lower yourself to someone elses standard for a fast buck. Leave people alone! People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!!

Hi All

Thanks to all those who have, as requested, replied to me via e-mail and not via the forum! To be clear, I'm not necessarily looking for the stories that would involve the law courts if printed, I'm looking for "colour", amusing anecdotes, etc. I'm writing a feature on the South of France and the celebs that live/ have second homes here and what they get up to.

Keep e-mailing:- gossip@popstar.com

I wouldn't worry about libel actions etc. I don't think anyone would seriously reply to such a question on a forum such as this. "Scoop" seems to have disappeared into the ether.

P.S. Did you know Magic Johnson went to Michaelangelo's for dinner last year? Now there's a SCOOP for you!!!!

Just out of interest, isnt 'Popstar' a gossip magazine/e-zine? Just wondering because its the email address given by 'scoop' hence people probably out to be careful of what they say.

Would AI be sued if something was said about a particular celebrity on this website by a forum member, which was consequently found to be rubbish?

Just wondering.

I once saw Prince **** in a ***** doing ****** to Mrs ***** with a jar of ****** and then ***** a goat.

Of course you can't believe all you read on the internet.

Didn't Mr Starr eat my hamster? 

I must say that all the people I have met down here who do work with the rich famous etc etc have had impecable distrection. Until the 5th Pint.

I and many others could tell you tales that would make your knickers twist. Despicable people, nouveau riche, drink, drugs, sexual (mis)behavior, total disregard for themselves and others. But you won't hear it from me. Discretion is part and parcel of the job.

If you want a "scoop" you might need to go somewhere else.

Oh, I did see Ringo Starr walking in the port of Monaco!!!
