There's nothing as funny as an old Grazia cover line

One of the curses of the internet is that old issues of gossip magazines stick around to haunt their editors. These are just a few Grazia cover stories I found last night.

"Victoria - leading separate life from David" (December 2007)
Think they've just had a baby.
"Brangelina - it's over - Brad banned from bedroom" (March 2009)
Seem to be going strong three years later.
"Jennifer to adopt a baby boy called Alex!" (April 2008)
"Jen and Brad - back together?" (May 2009)
"Katie flips! Is new marriage test the final straw?" (May 2009)
Doesn't appear so.
"Ange - Life without Brad" (June 2009)
Except she was still with Brad.
"Gwyneth marriage under attack" (November 2009)
Seemed to withstand whatever "attack" that was.
"Lady Gaga - battling serious illness?" (June 2010)
Seems to be bearing up.
"Has Kate secretly got married?" (October 2010)
No, she waited a year and then got very publicly married.


  1. can't wait for the word version of this...

  2. Elvis to tour UK.

  3. What are you doing reading Grazia?

  4. Caitlin Moran wrote a superb piece about Lady Gaga last year, in which it was more or less stated that Lady G suffers from Lupus, which is a very serious disease, and about which I understand she's only very occasionally spoken. Of course that doesn't mean that the Grazia headline wasn't arrant speculation.

  5. Doing this with football works far better. I've been ill and sat around listening to old Guardian football podcasts.

    'Maroune Chamakh is signing of the season.'
    Um, nope
    'Kenny Dalglish with never manage Liverpool again - thats just farcical'
    'There's no way this Man Utd team are anything like good enough to win the league'
