The reality show “Big Brother” has become extremely popular in a great deal of countries. During the last years it has released hundreds of anonymous people to fame. One of the most controversial contestants was Jade Goody, who took part in the british version of this program in 2002.
Her hard childhood, with a drug addict and pimp father, her extreme personal situation, sentenced to jail for not paying the rent, and her argument with another contestant, the Indian actress Shilpa Shetty, made her highly well-known.
After her appearance on TV, she earned millions of euros writing her autobiography and making her own perfume. In 2007 she took part in “Big Boss”, the Indian version of “Big Brother”. The aim was to make a public apology for her racist insults to Shilpa Shetty. It was there, in front of the cameras, where she was informed about having been diagnosed with cancer. After that, she has been selling her disease through interviews, photographs, etc.
Nowadays, she has announced on TV that she is going to die. This fact has deeply moved British society. Even the Secretary of State for Justice, Jack Straw, has helped her to get married releasing her boyfriend from prison. Last week, she was said to be going to sell her memories, the baptism of her sons and her own death on TV.
She explained that she was doing all of that to make money for her two sons. In contrast to that, many people believe that she’d already got a big fortune, € 3.7 million before her illness. They think she was doing it because she loved appearing on TV.
What do you think about that? Was it immoral for her to sell her death? Would you like to watch it? And what about the Justice Minister, do you agree with the release of her boyfriend?
