Teenage boys like to turn to a certain type of literature. It is literature that deals with people outside the norm; this resonates with teenage feelings of not belonging anywhere. The literature is so much part of growing up, it has become a rite of passage. The let down for all teenagers is usually when they find out that their parents have read the exactly same books in their teenage years, too.
Justin Bieber was bashing out in London for his 19th birthday (isn't that sweet, thinking of him being around for years and still only 19) and it turned out to be his worst birthday ever. We should excuse him for his age, then, as the events that unfolded were purely down to teenage thoughtlessness. Despite inconvenience to himself, he looked out after his guests first, though.
When I decided that I would write about this TV show of +Tom Daley's, I expected it to be nothing more than a good excuse to write a bit more about him and to have an even better excuse to post some pics of him. Well, I got a positive surprise by the show as such.
After last year's Harry Judd of +McFly fame in +Strictly Come Dancing (what the Americans call +Dancing with the Stars), this year we get Luke Campbell as an eye candy in Dancing on Ice. It is a hot and cold combination to behold. And I do think that he has a chance to be in it to win it, as boxers are such graceful movers (if you haven't been into boxing, then you should). And boxers don't come much sexier than Luke Campbell, too.
The battle of the boy bands is in full swing, as the war of words between +The Wanted and +One Direction shows. But the battle is an old one and has been fought before. And it usually comes down to who undresses better than the others. Nude marketing, though, can go wrong, as Blue had to find out.
The question whether +Tom Daley is gay or not has been asked (and not answered) so many times, it is becoming a running joke. There is a simple principle at work in that. The people who ask don't need to know. People who answer the question one way or another don't know. And the people who know don't answer the question. And this, in my opinion, is as it should be.
