Hello!!! and goodbye from me

One day I'll understand the appeal of Hello, its basically a magazine ofr people window shopping on the rich and famous' private lives and for me is totally pointless.
Hello has been around for about 10 years or so and is genuinely a market leader, indeed its more a market definer spawning a huge range of imitators like Ok and the glossy sunday newspaper mags. Hello features articles on the rich and famous at home, they are posed shots of the famous person supposedly in their home even though I know for a fact that some of the sets are in fact hired apartments. The magazine also buys the rights to famous weddings, christenings, and special events. There was for a while a belief in a curse of the Hello marriage, in which a set of marriages had broken up not long after featuring on Hello.
Hello!! (totally sarcastic) but if your selling your wedding pictures for huge amounts of money to a magazine then is it a suprise when the wedding fails?
Hello also features new babies and has a bizarre habit of describing a famous persons new baby as "introducing" and then moan a few months later about intrusion into their private lives and the endless presence of the paparazzi wherever they go. Hello! you've just sold your childs image rights for a few quid and had the baby spread all over a glossy magazine.
MY views on Hello! is two-fold firstly it spreads the desire to have what the celebrity has and therefore creates envy and envy is only a step away from hatred, my other is the creation of the shrine of celebrity and without Hello! I doubt we'd have half the TV shows currently cluttering up saturday night TV.
So its far to say I dislike the mag and have only ever bought it once when my wife was ill and wanted something to read, I bought her a book and Hello! to look at the pictures.
Why don't more people buy a book and let their imagination fill in the pictures rather than buy a glossy piece of rubbish.
Summary: Glossy rubbish, you can't even use it to wipe your nose on!
