Josie Cunningham has slammed mourning David Bowie fans as they share their heartbreak over the musical legend’s passing earlier this week.
The controversial personality – who shot to infamy after getting a boob job on the NHS and then threatening to abort her baby for a chance to appear on Big Brother – has weighed in on public grieving while giving an update on her life which you can read below.
Hi All! Wow, what a week its been! I became single, my boobs broke, David Bowie snuffed it and Celebrity Big Brother kicked off!
So, lets start with David Bowie . I’ve been in two minds on whether I should discuss my thoughts about David Bowie’s death, but I pride myself on being honest regardless of whether people will agree or not, so here goes!
I’m so irritated by all the people pouring their heart out over the death of David Bowie! Now, don’t get me wrong, I know he was an icon to a lot of the older generation, but most people under 25 would struggle to name two of his songs.
Before writing this blog I done a little bit of research and I really relate to his struggles, I also understand why people who grew up with his music are devastated, BUT most of the people writing their “RIP” and “We’ve lost a legend” statuses on social media are simply attention seeking sweaty teenagers who haven’t really got a clue who he is.
It infuriates me, its like when someone writes a message on Facebook to someone who has been dead 10 years on Facebook telling them to have a pint for them, now, unless in the after life they have a speedy wifi connection and access Facebook,… they’re not going to see it!
So why do they do it? Because they are seeking a bit of attention off of the other persons death. Now, If Madonna or Boy George had croaked it, I would understand a little bit more as they have managed to stay relevant through the years, and have a really varied fan base, but, if we’re being honest, most of the younger generation haven’t got a clue who he is.
So, yes, I understand why he was iconic, yes, I understand why the music industry is mourning their loss, and yes, I understand why it’s a shame he’s gone – but like I said, that’s only because I have done a little bit of research on him, without that I wouldn’t have a clue about who he actually was.
Moving on from Bowie, lets talk Celebrity Big Brother , now that the homophobe Winston has gone I’ve started watching it again!
When I was writing my thoughts on the new housemates last week, I thought that Tiffany Pollard was vile, but I also said I would give her the benefit of the doubt and make my own opinion on her, which I have. I really like her, I think misunderstanding the David Gest scenario was genuine and I would have probably acted in the same way!
When she realised she was wrong I totally understand why she refused to back down and apologies – the whole house was against her and she was just being isolated and borderline bullied.
I actually love the way Gemma tried to help her, how Tiffany took her advice yet everyone still blanked her. So Tiff, on the very slim chance you’ve managed to ‘crutch’ a mobile phone into the house, do what I would do…. stick a red sock in with their white washing, hide their luxuries and p*** in their shampoo bottles – let them know you can have just as much fun on your own as an outcast as you would as part of their group.
