Barbara’s Boring

By Simon Round, July 23, 2009

The tabloids have been jumping over themselves to report the fact that Amy Winehouse has got divorced from husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

Not everyone is interested though — Barbara Ellen in the Observer for one. She wrote in her column last week that everyone was bored with Winehouse and that no one cared that she had got divorced.
Then Ellen went on for over 200 words about how bored she was and accompanied the piece with a (boring?) two column-width photo of the not-so-happy couple.

So much for boredom. Imagine how much she would have written had she been interested in Amy?
