Gordon in the morning: Death stalks the gossip columns

I suppose at least Gordon's team has remembered to put Natasha's Richardson own name in the teaser for the story about her horrible, untimely death. Just about:

Neeson's Natasha dead

Because it's not like she had a career in her own right, or that her death is upsetting without needing to frame it in the grief of an equally famous husband.

Still, at least the report of her death is fairly well put together, unlike the mawkish dish served up by Martin Phillips and Emily Smith, who've dredged up an interview Natasha gave in 2003 where she told a story about having a cursed marriage. Oh, and slaps in some paparazzo snaps of her kids as well.

The clunking, invasive Our Tune tone of the coverage undermines somewhat The Sun's outrage over OK's clumsy decision to publish its Jade Goody farewell edition without waiting for her to die first.

Elsewhere, Liam Gallagher's clothing range (no, seriously) is greeted with excited coverage. It's going to be called Pretty Green - see, he's not limited to ripping off Lennon, he can do clodhanded filching from Paul Weller, too.
The limited menswear range will feature everything a Jack the lad could want.

Ah. Limited menswear range. A range of clothes for limited men.

But Liam, why are you taking a large cheque in return for adding your name to some trousers?
He said: “The reason I’m doing it is I like clothes. We’re going to do clothes I like. If people like it, cool. If they don’t, they don’t.”

'I just run up the trousers I like and if anyone else likes it, it's a bonus.'

So, will you merely be signing off the advert that has your name in it, or will you be down in the sewing room?
He added: “If you’re going to do it, you’ve got to get involved. I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be good.”

Rumours that he'll ask Noel to design the outfits, choose the fabrics, oversee the sewing room and sort out the orders, while he turns up to check the zippers work and appear in the pictures, are probably unfair.

A few minutes after I saw OK's Jade Goody "memorial" on the newsstands yesterday, I passed a copy of the Evening Standard with a paparazzi shot of one of Richardson's relatives going to visit her in hospital, with the caption "Farewell to Natasha." Richardson was still alive then, and AFAIK her family hadn't announced that they were awaiting her imminent death. Tabloid editors must think it's very inconsiderate of ailing celebrities not to schedule their deaths to match press times.

Noel of course, will simply copy something he saw John Lennon wearing.

"Yeah, last season's trousers weren't very good, but NEXT season's are going to be the greatest trousers the world has ever seen..."
