Celebrity Dad Faceoff

Friday, July 18th, 2008
By Glinda

You know, it’s hardly ever even a contest around here, because it seems that one contestant just keeps kicking the butt of his opponent no matter what I do.  Last week was no exception, as Matt Damon won with two-thirds of the vote.  I personally think that Matt Damon, while definitely attractive and certainly I wouldn’t turn down a drink with him, is not as “hot” as Matthew McConaughey. 

Now, we are getting down to the final few Dads in this particular edition of Celebrity Dad Faceoff, I’ve got an exciting new twist in the next couple of weeks.  Uh, well, at least I think it’s exciting.  But then, I thought that Matthew McConaughey was hotter than Matt Damon, so maybe only a quarter of you will agree with me.

Anyhoo, onward and upward!

And, have you noticed the distinct lack of clothing I’ve been featuring lately?

Hey, it’s Friday. It’s the least I can do for you.

Celebrity Baby Math

Honor AlbaI was moderately good at math when I was in school, but then as always profoundly lazy and am thus, very glad that The Guardian’s Hadley Freeman, the only UK fashion writer worth following, has gone ahead and done the cold, hard calculations. Yes, as you’ve always suspected, there is a specific formula to the monetary value of celebrity baby photos.

Now, nobody here is asserting on the record that breeding is more lucrative than releasing a new album. On the record.


Once A-list children made their debut at the Crillon ball in Paris; now they’re on the cover of a Richard Desmond publication – OK!, generally, not Asian Babes…

Some might think these prices are the product of a celebrity-obsessed media that believes its own self-produced hype. In fact, they are the result of a strict mathematical formula: Value of pictures = Fame of parents x glamorousness of mother during pregnancy x general attractiveness of both parents (no one wants to fork out a couple of mil for an ugly baby) + any past scandal that either parent has overcome to reach this ending + funniness of child’s name. Divide amount by two-thirds if child is adopted: the interest in celebrity kids is to see how the celebrity’s genes have fared, you see.

As if there isn’t already an obscure branch of calculus devoted to the economics of celebrity adoption. I believe that Cambridge will shortly boast the Madonna Chair in African PhotoOps.
