The Anonymous Widower

Katherine Jenkins At The Marathon

There seems to have been a lot of criticism of Katherine Jenkins at the London Marathon.  It’s reported here on the BBC. This is an extract, containing comments from a Daily Mail columnist.

She then criticised the singer’s appearance, describing her £200 Prada sunglasses, full make-up, “immaculate” ponytail and “raisin-sized” diamond earrings.

So what! She wouldn’t be the first runner, who wanted to look her best.

I actually saw her perform once at a private party and she was definitely worth whatever the organisers paid.

Is this just another case of Tall Poppy Syndrome?

If I was a celebrity treated in this way in these circumstances by a columnist, I’d challenge them to a race, with the loser paying several thousand to a charity of the winner’s choice.
