My thanks to Joanna for bringing to my attention a priceless piece from the Daily Mail of 27 December. Enjoy:
Lady in Red crooner Chris de Burgh’s daughter, former Miss World Rosanna Davison, will appear on the cover of US Playboy, following her nude appearance in its German edition in October. Explaining her motives for disrobing, Ms Davison, 28, says: ‘One of my big worries over doing Playboy was my responsibility towards women and towards feminism or towards the movement. I decided to do it based on my academic understanding of women’s writing and literature.’ Utter twaddle, but I expect we’d better check it out anyway.
Ms Davison’s statement ‘justifying’ her nude modelling must surely have sent feminists ballistic. Marvellous. We really should present her with a ‘Maggie’ by way of appreciation.
