The Verbal Suicides

Well it has been a busy time for verbal diarrhoea and Charlie Sheen needs Immodium big time to stem the endless flow.
 Now officially sacked from his award "Winning!" show,he is a man with mania on his mind. He was wielding a machete (channeling his inner Gaddafi?...) from the top of some building in LA and only seems to be"Winning!" on Twitter with the amounts of followers he now has...sadly enough,the stuff he comes up with is hilarious if it wasn't said with such certainty...and the world sits back and watches him crash into delirium.
"Winner,winner Sheen dinner..." So many anecdotes have come of this Joan Rivers will be using this material for the rest of her days. I am sure the sales of his tshirts will be through the roof what with "tiger blood" being the choice du jour. This man has not only bitten off the hand that feeds him but has fed it to his inner tiger... while he continues to feast on the giant foot in his mouth he continues to ramble at warp speed...sad but compulsive viewing.
I'd buy a tshirt but sadly here in France,no one would get the irony and the impact would be slightly wasted.
Hopefully he can "cure himself with his mind" but on a more sane and permenant level.

*Galliano on the cover of Fashion People*

 What was even more painful viewing was the video footage of  50 year old John Galliano,obviously enibriated and slurring through his anti semitic remarks. We are not used to seeing him other than strutting his bad self down the runway after his shows and looking a little more fierce or foolish (depending on how you may see it). Hearing him speak under these circumstances was crazily hypnotic,I just wanted to hit repeat over and over again while cringing in  embarrassment. It was like watching your aged aunt making a spectacle of herself after having been heavy handed with the sherry, during what was a seemingly innocuous dinner and has now become so much more. But you can bundle your aunt home, put her to bed and the next morning she will be non the wiser.Somehow Galliano's remarks...filmed amazingly!?.. cannot be swept under the runway carpet and the poor bewildered man is well under the popping lightbulbs now for all the wrong reasons and not by the runway photographers. How the mighty have fallen.
 He has been publicly sacked and disgraced from the House of Dior and facing a court hearing while he tries to clear his name. Whatever next?  Genius does seem to lead to madness,look at Mel Gibson. He is the sum total of what these two are going through...and look how his career  is faring...  
I remember when Galliano's graduation collection from St.Martin's was snapped up by fashion doyenne Joan Burstein to display in Browns. His was a rising star,pure genius all the way but now I see a shadow of his former self . He needs a Marc Jacobs moment,when he goes away to rehab,away from the public eye and comes back as Adonis! How hot is Marc Jacobs,seriously...from geek to Greek God... Bang!
 Times are a changing and leaders are toppling even in the fashion and television world. Salaries are through the roof and so are the egos...so much to learn from this. 

On a whole new note: Jude Law and Sienna Miller are no longer a couple...I have 2 words for that and it isn't :"How sad..." more like: Who cares.
 Never re freeze a defrosted meal. Jude will move on to somebody's nanny... although he is getting a little long in the tooth now for that to make any impact whatsoever.As for the lovely Sienna? She will undoubtedly create chaos with yet another inappropriate liason. Funtimes ahead.
