Posh and Becks feature in a nativity scene at Madame Tussaud’s.
Continuing my musings on fame and its contemporary cultural significance, what’s going on when our Nic is named UN Citizen of the World alongside Hans Blix and Lakhdar Brahimi, Angelina Jolie saves the world, one adoption at a time and Dannii Minogue, clad only in a red ribbon, is the postergirl for HIV/AIDS prevention organisation the Terrence Higgins Trust?
that her latest song, ‘You Won’t Forget About Me’, is about breaking down stereotypes and myths surrounding Aids such as it being a gay disease.
Bitchy, I know, but don’t you think Dannii is looking more and more like Michael Jackson?
So what’s going on? Do we live out our humanitarian, political, religious and public health impulses mediated through the cult of celebrity?

JUST IN: Jess has more thoughts on Ms Jolie, answering a question on everyone’s mind.
UPDATE: Religious leaders agree with Homer.
