SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
Noooooo! Fans of the Bridget Jones books brace yourselves –(AND AGAIN, SPOILER ALERT) Mark Darcy has been killed off in the third book of the series, Mad About The Boy, written by Helen Fielding.
An extract of the latest Bridget Jones’s saga was published in a UK newspaper upsetting fans who reacted similarly to when Patrick was killed in the Offspring season finale.
In The Edge of Reason, Darcy proposes to Jones and in the beginning of Mad About The Boy we learn that the couple did marry and have two children, before tradgey strikes leaving Jones’ as a 51-year-old widow.
UK Fans took to Twitter mourn the death of the popular character.
Anne Robinson tweeted: “Mark Darcy is dead. Bridget Jones is a widow!! This is all too much for a lazy Sunday morning.”
Fiona Ufton said: “Noooo! Not Mark Darcy!” and Laura Nicholson wrote: “Mr Darcy is dead… How traumatic for Bridget Jones fans.”
How Mr Darcy meets his end hasn’t been revealed, his death will appear in a flashback deep into the book, which is released on October 10.
1. Rihaana got booed. Again.
This time, it’s Rihanna’s Brisbane show that has been slammed by critics and members of the audience. She made it to Brisbane on time, and was on stage without too much of a delay (unlike her ill-fated Adelaide performance), but Ri-Ri has faced negative backlash for performing a series of B-side songs to start the performance off and for wearing a scandalous outfit and dancing provocatively.
It seems everyone forgot, it is Rhianna.
The Courier-Mail went even further, writing that:
“Live singing is becoming rarer and rarer in arena shows and there was little if any on display in this performance.
Even Milli Vanilli understood the cardinal rule that if your voice is coming through the speakers then the microphone should be in front of your mouth.
Not that it really mattered much whether she was singing or not — the sound design was so woeful that there were many times when you couldn’t differentiate between voice and synthesiser, the sound was so blown out.”
Other stops on the pop star’s Diamonds World Tour show have received negative reviews after it appeared that Rihanna was either drunk or lip-syncing on stage.
2. Singer Alanis Morissette has been taken to court by her nanny and accused of mistreating her. Details here.
You’re probably wondering what ‘shaded’ means in this context and it’s a verbal smack-down of sorts.
Katy Perry has recalled the time she ran late for an interview with 84-year-old award-winning journalist, Barbara Walters. For with whom you do not want to be late.
