Jodie MarshPosted: October 4, 2011
Whenever I see a celebrity trending on Twitter my usual response is- are they dead?
This happened in Sri Lanka when I saw that Lemmy was trending and had a serious panic that the rock god had shuffled off the mortal coil, but it turned out he hadn’t people were just discussing the documentary about him. I guess I should have had more faith in him.
So this morning when Jodie Marsh was trending I clicked to see why people were discussing her,
I know she’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I’ve always had a soft spot for her. Okay, maybe not a soft spot exactly (cue Sid James laugh).
I think part of the reason I like her is because she’s always seemed a bit more sincere than Jordan, her major glamour rival. Jordan’s tried to portray herself as some kind of victim in order to go mainstream, whereas Jodie seems to have come to terms with the fact that people see her as a slag. In fact sometimes she appears to revel in it.
Yes, she’s tacky and cheap in lots of way, but so’s McDonalds, and sometimes you just want a Big Mac.
I liked that she shaved her head and went lesbian for a bit, that she covered herself with tatts, that she decided to become a tattoo artist without being able to draw- She’s like a whirlwind of half-baked schemes and attention craving stunts.
So I was quite amused when she announced she was becoming a bodybuilder, I’ve always kind of liked the amazonian look, and to begin with she did look pretty good with some muscles.
But in typical Marsh style she went a little too far, and today she appeared in the papers winning a bodybuilding competition. And she looked bad.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not ragging on muscled women, I mean, I’ve admitted to having a crush on Chyna back in the day.
I’m not sure its the muscles that make her look daft, its more that she looks like she’s been swimming in marmite or something. What I’m basically saying is, I still would.
