Comment - Jade Goody


Hi Zoey,

As you know, I am not a fan of Jade Goody, but I agree with your thoughts that it was inappropriate for OK magazine to publish her ‘tribute’, i.e. obituary before she died. It shows that the magazine was maximizing its profits before she was even cold! I suppose it is possible they may have arranged to pay her for it; and she wanted to ensure the money was in the bank for her children before she passed away. Who knows – I hope this is not the start of a new trend for publishing ‘obituaries’ while people are still alive.
I do not think OK magazine will suffer too much for this. It has a massive fan base addicted to ‘celebrity culture’.
