Spice Up Your Carbon Footprint
If you wanna be their lovers, you gotta score their friends some jets. Now that the erstwhile Spice Girlsâ€”Posh, Sporty, Ginger, Baby, and Scaryâ€”have announced plans for their globe-trotting reunion tour, we find out that Virgin Records is donating one Lear Jet for each spicy mama and her entourage.
Each Spice Girl, says the latest issue of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s OnEarth, will earn $25 million, while all five jets will generate a whopping 47,500 tons of carbon dioxide. We don’t know about you, but that’s SO not girl power.
Paris Hilton Enrages Animal Rights Group
PARIS HILTON has been slammed by an animal rights group for her growing brood of dogs – accusing her of encouraging others to buy pets as accessories. Animal rights campaigners People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) believe Hilton’s recent acquisition of Jimi Hendrix (a Chihuahua) and Cinderella (a Yorkie) from a pet store in Beverly Hills are setting bad examples for young fans to follow. And now PETA president Ingrid Newkirk has penned an open letter to the star, writing, “Perhaps you (Paris) and other vacuous stars need to tattoo ‘Don’t buy while pound pups die’ on your foreheads to remind each other of that home truth.” Hilton’s latest purchases brings her total number of pets to a reported 25.

Kate Moss Chooses Vegan
Croydon girl Kate Moss seems to finally be taking steps to getting nihilistic drug fuelled Pete Doherty out of her system. Helping with the purge is Jamie Hince a guitarist with the indie rock group The Kills, a self proclaimed ‘vegan chain-smoker’! Kate & Jamie sparked the rumours of them being in a relationship, because of a 30-hour drinking session at a London pub.
Jamie was named as one of the world’s sexiest vegetarians earlier this year. Although Kate Moss looks like the media’s stereo-type impression of a vegan it seems she doesn’t eat much of anything. A good healthy vegan diet maybe exactly what she needs after all that alleged boozing and drug taking with Pete Doherty.
However from the look of vegan Jamie Hince, his self professed chain smoking and the fact that the relationship with Kate is started on the basis of late night drinking it sounds like health, diet and nutrition won’t be featuring very high up on their list of priorities.
