Coldplay to quit music scene
The article starts off with the buzz over Chris Martin from Coldplay saying that the band would be going on a two-year hiatus. Maybe, maybe not. We'll see what happens when the royalty money starts to dry up...
But buried deeper in the article is that it looks like Madonna has found herself a boytoy, and her marriage to Guy Ritchie may be on the rocks. Never one to be upstaged, I'm sure she's been watching all the publicity surrounding the relationship Demi Moore and the much-younger Ashton Kutcher, and she thought "If I did that, my name would be all over the headlines too."
The one thing that Madonna has always been good at is shameless self-promotion, and she's always been ready and willing to go to any lengths to get herself into the headlines. At 47, she's not a daily tabloid feature any more: but she hasn't lost the hunger to be one.
I'd be willing to bet that by the end of the year, she'll have found herself back in the headlines the old-fashioned way: by sleeping her way into them...
