inTouch Magazin Photo Death Match - Nr. 09 - 21 Februar 2008

There used to be this incredible Robotech-themed Hollywood gossip blog. Among other things, it featured a weekly column tallying the number of photo appearances by various celebrities in each issue of Us Weekly. Well, a long train ride found Kelly in possession of the latest issue of inTouch Deutschland. Perhaps as a tribute, she ran a tally. We couldn't be more pleased to announce that Paris Hilton (yes, yes, link SFW) holds the top position with an aggressive 14 featured pictures. And, welcome back sweet 2004, Nicole Richie comes in second with 10 shots, aided by the recent birth of her first child.

For the record, aside from the Beckhams and Amy Winehouse, the German-language inTouch is pretty much exclusively American. But, y'know, with that inimitable continental perspective. No, that doesn't mean a “Jim Jarmusch: He's Just Like Us!” But it does mean that Gwyneth Paltrow with a dangling cigarette is described, ohne Ironie, as “sportlich.” Also a full-blown feature on the perplexing conundrum of why Deutschland sucht den Superstar hasn't harvested the sort of “megastars” the U.S. found on American Idol. A Will Shortz puzzler, that one.

This is proof that even after going to jail, Paris Hilton can bounce back. I shed a tear of happiness for her today.

All of this is also proof of America's slow and steady destruction of European ideals. America is destroying Europe, Chris, and it's up to you to stop it!
