Last month, we heard about the ‘tragic’ death of Jade Goody. Jade Goody was an unknown person who became very famous for her strange and irresponsible actions during her short lived life and even after her death! She is so famous that a film is proposed to be made about her . . . what’s more...

Since Ciao introduced its ‘Current Issue’ competition there hasn’t been a topic which has caught my attention enough to make me write a review. Of course I did participate in the Product of the Week competition when it was about a Cadbury ‘Cumble’ Crunch bar, but that’s just another story...

Where do I start?

Goody had become property of the media "to be manipulated and exploited till the day she died"…but even once she is dead, they are still doing it. (Sir Michael Parkinson) Just when I thought the media and press couldn’t get any more absurd, it’s announced that a film is (probably) to be made of...

“A no-brainer”

published 19/04/2009

Could illuminate some issues

Over-exposure

I think it is inevitable and totally logical that Jade Goody’s life is made into a film. Does that thought make me happy? No, it doesn’t. Is the life of Jade Goody a phenomenon that is film-worthy? It most certainly is. Bear in mind that the original question posed here is about the making of a...

The way we celebrate mediocrity is shameful.

FIRSTLY: For someone to die during the prime of their life is a tragedy. Hundreds of people suffer from terminal illness every year, affect countless loved ones who care for them and are bereaved afterwards. My sympathy would especially go out to all the children who have prematurely lost a...

It is not given enough support

It was just by luck that I clicked onto the Current Issue, as I never normally write in it. Usually the topics of concern revolve around the war and politics, with the occasional personal account of recent years and events. However as soon as the page loaded up, two little words leapt out at me...

“Jade - Our girl”

published 04/04/2009

Raise awareness and celebrate her life

Exploit her family and other cancer sufferers

Should Jade Goody’s life be turned to film? I’m sure we all know who Jade Goody is by now, her painful and tragic cancer has been throughout the news and tabloids for the past few months, painfully documenting the tragic loss of such a young girl step by step capturing every cruel moment of...

“No Way”

none

plenty

Boy oh boy if ever there was a fuss about nothing then Jade Goody is that nothing. Lurching from a pathetic TV reality show into even more media hype. If ever there were a time when we should reflect on our ever apparently increasing passion with celebrity status this is it. I have every sympathy...

Could be a worthy film

Will most likely be a badly made film

There seems to be a lot of opposition around to the idea of Jade Goody’s life being made into a film. It seems that many in the media, most of my work colleagues and lots of people I’ve heard from are against the idea. It does appear, however, that the amount of negativity on the subject varies...

Does anyone think about how this affects her sons?

Introduction for those who need it Jady Goody was a recent celebrity who found fame on a reality show called Big Brother in 2002. I'd say a lot of people didn't really like her at first, as in the UK there is no shortage of pointless celebrities. She was seen as a joke because of her ignorance...

When Jade Goody died this Mothers Day, I read and heard countless opinions on the matter. Some people were happy that she had died and that she "deserved" it, other felt that she was a "hero" and an "inspiration", others just simply felt it was sad that someone had died from something so horrible...

So, they are thinking of making a movie about the life of Jade Goody, from which all proceeds will go to giving her sons a better life. Let’s first of all go back a few years to when Jade first bounced onto our screens (and I really do mean bounced) It was 2002 when she appeared in Big Brother 3...

“Jade Goody's life story”

published 02/04/2009

Cannot think of advantages a film would have.

Her life has been played out too much.

It is really strange how one person has had so much impact on the nation, so much that her life is now to be turned into a film. Even stranger is that she was not even a winner of Big Brother - she came fourth. Winners of the show have not had the impact that Jade has had. So what do we know...

Family privacy disrupted

Jade Goody, where does anyone start. A movie?? NO WAY. Jade did not deserve to die at such a young age, no one does, nor did her 2 little boys deserve to have their own mother taken from them. Its great that the awareness has been raised and more women are being checked. But there are thousands...
