Goody Goody Gone Gone

In Memoriam
Jade Goody
Celebrity from Big Brother

So farewell
Then, Jade Goody.

'East Angular'
That was
Your catchphrase.
'Shilpa Poppadom'
That was another.

My dad says
You lived
And died
In the public eye.
And is sorry
For saying
You looked like
A pig.

Just like Princess Di
You were our
Queen of Tarts.
Er, Hearts.

E.C. Richard (29)

While I'm very sorry that she's dead, the coverage has far out-weighed her "celebrity" status (let's face it, her biggest claim to fame was her ability to say incredibly stupid things). People who literally changed the world (as well as provided half a century of great music) such as James Brown, Ray Charles & Johnny Cash got less coverage than she did.

A cheap shot, considering her background she's contributed more to this world than your sometimes sad efforts.

of which this is one

That coverage she received has made the government think about issues concerning smears for younger Lady's,its thanks to jades plight that many woman have now gone for smears thus saving many lives! there's not many musicians I know off that have saved so many life's!
Jade knew she wasn't an educated person but she used her fame to provide a good secure future for her two sons!Who can blame her for that!

absolutly,all she was doing was trying to get enough money for her sons to get a decent education-as she admitted she was ill educated,easy for you to make fun of her ECR-thought you had more compassion than this-and you Peter.Let us hope she is at peace at last...

I recall a couple of years ago a newspaper called her something like "The face of pure evil", yet that same newspaper is treating her like a saint now. I thought the over-reaction back then to her silly "racist" comment was ridiculous back then, just as I think they're over-reacting now. Sorry folks, but it really is Princess Di all over again.

She exemplified all that's wrong with our Hello/OK magazine- obsessed society when someone who lacked talent, personality or intelligence could become a millionairess. I know she had a poor education and general start to life but others in her situation have managed to educate themselves and make a great contribution to society. What was she famous for? Asking what currency was used in Liverpool? It's sad she's left two children but she did ignore warnings to get treatment for the third time for suspect smears. She'd had treatment as young as 16 for pre-cancerous cells so should have known she was at risk when she ignored danger signs. At least she's left her children provided for but I'm sure they'd rather have their mother alive and well.

Actually, 4pm, I'd say a sad old tosser like you making anonymous sarky comments on an anonymous Thanet blog in the middle of the afternoon pretty much makes you Mr Sad of Sadtown, Sadshire, wouldn't you? I presume, however, that it was just an interlude between cracking some off to pictures of Jade in OK magazine.

As for compassion, 5:10pm, compassion for who? She's dead now, so it ain't going to do her a lot of good, is it? There are real people who do really heroic things in this world, and they get no recognition for it, nor do they seek it. I feel sorry for her suffering, but at the end of the day she was an attention-seeking wannabe with no actual achievements to her name. A bit like yours truly, in fact!

I have to agree with ECR and all those who sail with him. Ignorance is no reason to be a celebrity. media hype is not something to be proud of either. Look around you for the people who really 'do good' in this country.

Don'T blame her for being a celeb wannabe! it was the public that brought the magazines and papers she was in that made her that.

Anyone who read that and thinks its making fun of Jade is beyond help.

Erm mybe its the title goody goody gone gone you idiot!!!

There's a subtle difference between mild satire and making fun, 8:12pm. Not something your Stella-numbed braincells would be able to comprehend, I take it.

you are so far up your own arse! would you like it if some sad old bitter man like yourself made sick nasty spiteful comments about some one in your family that died? Ask jades sons if they think its funny

Eastcliff Richard said...

Her kids are probably too young and under-developed to appreciate the humour, 8:23pm. Rather like you, it seems. Also, no-one in my family is an attention seeking buffoon whose only claim to fame was that she came 4th in Big Brother.

You'll be petitioning the Pope to canonise her nonetheless, no doubt.

Black humour is one thing, mixed with contempt and middle class snobbery its miserable

Anonymous said...

Humour!! you call that humour?
yeah cos that really made me laugh,and I beg to differ there is at least one attention seeking buffoon in your family YOU!except unlike jade who made millions your never make a penny out of it!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Clearly the one mutant sperm made it to the egg in your case too, 8:57pm.

Now do run along and make like Jade, viz: fuck off and die.

whats up hit a nerve did I ?
your a very sore loser as well as a complete and utter twat! maybe instead of trying to judge other peoples live Mr high and ever so mighty why don't you just go out and get your own life then maybe you wouldn't feel the need to be oh so full of humour over some poor cow that died of cancer and left two young boys without a mother!

Eastcliff Richard said...

What a shame your old man couldn't have cranked you out as one of his, no doubt, thousands of knuckle children, 9:08pm.

Besides, who are you to judge when you're coming across as Judge Mental? You've got more chips on your shoulder than Harry Ramsden, old boy.

Oh well, it was entertaining while I finished off this piece for the Eye. What's more, it's my blog so I get the last word, ha ha. Ya boo sucks and no returns!!!
