they don't go out to consciously be a role model, but kids choose them to be so, and celebs know that......and therefore I believe, have a moral duty to behave in a reasonable manner because of the celebrity status they hold, and the following that they have.

You must be getting old, Neil, you sound like quite the philosopher O0. I totally agree with your comments about so-called celebrities, but many of them can't handle the pressure the celeb status puts on them. I think that, in many cases, they are either too young or too immature (or both) to cope with the sudden wealth and public exposure that goes with being famous, and simply can't deal with it in a responsible manner.

I am so sad at the quality of thinking on this site,  the life of a young women who was clearly ill has no value.
"See the world as I see it or you are bad , mad or worthless" Seem's to be the attitude of too many people on this forum.
 I have had enough and will leave the small minded gang to their little Englander thoughts.
Thank you for the model advice and help from a number of people who visit this site (especially those who have contributed to the steam and sail section) however I can't stand the bile anymore goodnight and goodbye.
Mark

She only had herself to blame, sorry but thats how it is..SHE chose to drink to access, SHE chose to do drugs and unfortunately it may have killed her. The people in Norway did not choose to get massacred

I can not say I was a Fan, I tend not to follow any particular group, If I like a song I Like it for its face value who ever it is, and I am sorry she died, I have a couple of her songs on my Ipod because when she was good she was good.

My point was mereley the levels of press coverage devoted to her at that particular time, but then that is the press for you. :((  tomorrow it will probably be all about the News Baron again..

There really is no need to get heated about this .And as mentioned it is in the chit chat section and from past threads I think it has almost been quite civil.. 8) 8)

I suppose she just wanted to be like all the others, Jimmi Hendrix, Kurt Kobain, Janis Joplin, Keith Moon... the list goes on.  It's been going on for years and I'm sure it will continue to do so

My condolences do however go to her family and friends... and to those killed in Norway

No one is saying "She deserved it or good riddance!" But it's just so sad that a 'young' person has given up her life when
 we suspect drugs and alcohol are very much involved…. such a waste ... when it could have all been avoided.

So "Dekan" supposes that there is a majority of "Right Wingers" (in the political sense as opposed to the whining sort.....). Can'y quite see where he gets that idea from. You just have to mention the "Daily Mail" or "Daily Telegraph" on here and it becomes man the barricades time! BY.

Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Mama Cass, Kurt Cobain, Phill Lennot, Marc Bolan, Brian Jones, Amy Winehouse, all died around about the age of 27, does that mean we have another 7 years of Jedward

Often people with great talent are flawed. This includes some great scientists, and great leaders, as well as artists and musicians. from history.

Yep, missed him Geoff, then of course going back to the 50,s, probably the first hell raiser, Hank Williams died in the back of a car on his way to a new years eve gig 1953 he was 28. All very sad, and all probably avoidable, I,ve been a pro muso for 40 odd years, been offered loads of weird stuff on the road, tried it, did,nt like it, just lucky I guess that I said no, and that,s the operative word.  Did,nt mean any disrespect to any of them, maybe just a stab at the black humour we have all heard at funeral,s ect, when we realise how fallible we all are, as the saying goes, there but for the grace of god go I.
