The Sydney Morning Herald - National, World, Business, Entertainment, Sport and Technology News from Australia’s leading newspaper The Age - National, World, Business, Entertainment, Sport and Technology News from Melbourne’s leading newspaper au au - Business News, World News & Breaking News in Australia If there's a status symbol above and beyond fancy cars and wristwatches, beach houses and private jets, it has to be marrying a model.
Three-quarters of the reason rock stars become rock stars is to date and marry models, a practice that hasn't changed in decades.
David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Ric Ocasek, Roger Daltrey, Eric Clapton, Paul Mc Cartney, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and every member of the Rolling Stones walked down the aisle with mannequins; so did Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Stone Temple Pilots's Scott Weiland and Seal.
On the other hand I can see why some models leave their partners due to men's grave personality defects that can't even be diffused in good looks. Isn't this just a rehash of the concept - handsome, high-earner, faithful - pick two?
Being intelligent, beautiful, willing to sleep with you - pick two?
From reading what the amal men have said over the years I very much doubt that the urge they feel when they have a relationship with a model has anything to do with the deliberate production of babies.
