Ahoy! Media sensationalism

The way the papers and TV are going off about Delta Goodrem you'd think she'd died suddenly. They're running tributes rivalling the great Princess Di debacle.

Obviously I feel for her, and I hope she recovers fully as soon as possible - but the notion that it's somehow a more important story than all the other misery in the world because she's had a couple of hit songs is absolutely ridiculous.

This makes me sound like a prick doesn't it?

UPDATE - Somebody else is taking her plight seriously. Searches for 'Delta Goodrem Nude' on Google have been on fire all day.
