Girls allowed

GQ has Girls Aloud on its front cover this month. I'm sure there is a really good reason for this.

A good reason other than, that is, they are young women with not a great deal of clothes on. Haven't skipped in a few pages, this month it is actually GQ's entertainment issue.

I like GQ and as usual there are some gems inside. For instance, there is an interview with the director (currently working on 'X-Men: The Last Stand') Brett Ratner, who at 37, is described as literally being GQ man. He is a multimillionaire, he drives a Bentley and has a girlfriend who is a Romanian model called Alina Puscau. Never heard of her, but she's a model so hey.

Or if you Google news, his girlfriend might be everyone's favourite 'Mean Girl' Lindsay Lohan who turned up at Ratner's house and found him in bed with Puscau and was somewhat surprised.

Apparently, he never told Lohan when they got together that he… er… like had this girlfriend.

I digress slightly, I was going to make some lame point about I always live in hope and expect something more from men's magazines other than scantily clad MAWs on the front page.

But then I reconsidered and having read the Ratner piece came to the conclusion that the reason why Girl's Aloud are on the front cover is not simply because they are 19- and 20-year-old clotheshorses-come-popstars, but because GQ thinks that its late 30- and 40-something readers could be actually dating them (Girls Aloud that is). Like Ratner, who possibly would date one of them (maybe more than one) if he could sort out his current love life troubles.

Forgive me for pointing this out Gordon you old card but isn't Dave Cameron on the cover of GQ this month?

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

As for Girls Aloud, isn't it interesting that last year, when Cheryl and co appeared in rival publication Arena, GQ slammed them for it. I believe there was a comment about Arena readers being the sort who 'bang one out over an Arena picture spread of Girls Aloud'. Oh the irony. If this were true of Arena readers surely it's also true of GQ readers?

GQ could do with a shake up- maybe a new editor. Would you do the job Gordon?

There are two front covers this month - Girls Aloud and Cameron.

Don't remember the Arena thing, but very amusing. Guess which version of the front cover is going to shift the most.

The gay hordes will probably be banging one out over Cameron.

Who's your favourite member of Girls Aloud Gordon?
