Book Description

16 Oct 2008

As any self-respecting media junkie will know, Thursday is Popbitch day. And that means the latest, most accurate, scurrilous insider stories on everything you need to know from the Moscow pig Olympics to Posh and Beck's (aka Skeletor and Derek) snack choice.

Regarded as a cross between Private Eye and Smash Hits, Popbitch has achieved massive mainstream recognition having gained the reputation as being first with countless celebrity scoops, way ahead of the tabloids. If you want to be among the first to learn about the activities of David Hasslehoff, Lembit Opik and Britney's dogs you need to be plugged into Popbitch.

Here at last is the long-awaited edited collection of the best - and worst - stories, exposes and llama pictures from the past eight years, along with new material including analysis of the celebrity phenomenon, a knit your own otter pattern, a glossary to the all-important Popbitch nicknames (know your Fat Tongue from your Fat Dancer) and the world's first start your own celebrity rumour board game.

You read it here first.

Review

"A collection of the best-ever stories from the past eight years of the infamous celebrity gossip website" (Cosmopolitan)

"It's very rude, and it's very funny" (Observer Woman)

"genius ... it is by turns scabrous (cut-out-and-keep celebrity cock puppet), sweet (knit-your-own otter pattern) and daft - a picture of someone's chin made up to look like Jodie Marsh" (Independent on Sunday)

Review

'It's very rude, and it's very funny'

A Christmas annual filled to the brim with rudeness

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Xmas Present Ever 4 Nov 2008
By S. Ward
Format:Hardcover
I bought this on impulse and it's an absolute belter.
Forget the coffee table (although, it's very nicely bound & put together actually- unlike the intentionally random popbitch email), this book is the perfect loo-read (no, not the singer).
I do mean this as a compliment by the way, you can pick it up, enjoy a few moments of 100% hilarity and leave until you next pass by...
i hate xmas shopping so i think i may just buy everyone i know a copy of this.
It's pretty much the perfect present - except for maybe my grandparents... they might not be ready for 'popbits', 'chad wegkamp' and his huge testicles or 'otter or rotter'.
I've loved the Popbitch email for yonks - so this is a very nice suprise & bloody good value too.

Popbitch: Celebrity Excess And Other Monkey Business

If you want to know what celebrities really get up to, this is the book for you! Popbitch doesn't just cover the same old stories as Heat et al, it gives a real insight into their sometimes bizarre world. Mix these stories with pictures of otters and other cute animals and you've got a riveting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously funny 5 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover
This is not your normal 'humorous', 'perfect christmas present' booky wooky. Because it is actually very funny and clever. It is a perfect christmas present. Also i like the hard black cover

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Christmas read 6 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover
This book is an absolutely brilliant read and completely charming. I picked up a copy recently and I couldn't stop giggling so I brought it. It's very silly but also contains some really shocking celebrity gossip. Some of which I can't believe they got away with printing - they even reveal the answers to a load of blind items.

It's stuffed with things to read (and even do, I can't wait to try and knit my own otter) so will keep you amused for hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurrah! 5 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover
Hilarious and irreverent, in this book Camilla Wright has taken pop culture to an illegal interrogation room in Eastern Europe, poked it with witty sticks and got it to spill its darkest secrets. It should have people guiltily chortling into their Turkey this Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Christmas books 9 Feb 2009
By Peter Lee TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
When you think of a "Christmas book" you think of some flimsy tie-in, clearly written by committee and shoved together in a coffee break, readable from cover to cover in the same amount of time. In the case of this book, please forget that particular image as it definitely doesn't apply here.

As soon as you open the cover you realise that this book has been something of a labour of love. If, like me, you're a fan of the Popbitch website and newsletter you'll see some familiar stuff, but also a lot of new material, and the whole thing has been assembled into chronological order, running through the years from when Popbitch was born. Inside you'll find blind items ("which 80's pop star...?"), a couple of comic strips, and even instructions on how to knit your own otter. After opening this on Christmas Day I read it from cover to cover and it took a good few days to devour it. This is one of the most entertaining Christmas tie-in books I have read, and I highly recommend it.

One thing: don't look at the title, see the word "pop", and give it to the kids. Bad idea...
