The first half of the book was quite surprising in that she goes into detail about her adolescent life, her inspirations surrounding pursuing a career in (glamour) modelling, and the very personal story of her experiences with a paedophilic photographer during her pre-adolescent teenage years. This I applaud her for, as I expect it is not an easy feat to expose personal stories like these, and hopefully will inspire people in similar situations to tell their stories as well, or at least seek help from the proper authorities.
This, however, is where my applauding halts, as most of the following chapters focus on her (very) publicised relationships. Plus, while this is expected, Katie goes into a rant of berating her ex-lovers' penis sizes, sexual performance and extremely shallow expectations of what a man's body should be like in order to acquire the authority to `date' her. I felt particularly sorry for Gareth Gates, as whilst I don't doubt Katie's words are in essence the truth, she really doesn't put him in a good light towards the end.Read more ›
Why is it that people, Jordan herself included, try so hard to intellectualise the idea of 'Jordan'. It seems pretty straightforward to me. She's famous for wearing very little and selling intimate details of her tawdry little private life and the sexual performance of various minor 'celebrities' (Dane Bowers anyone?)
Pure cashing in on the "Get me out of here" media hype. Let's hope both her and Peter Andrea fall flat (well Katy couldn't) on their faces. It's a blatant ill thought out get rich quick scheme.
Reading this book has made me feel a certain rapport with her. I feel a mixture of happiness as she seems to have found great inner strenth through (ALL) the hard times she has been though (which is certainally more than the average person deals with!) but also sadness that her relationship with men consumes so much of her being.
Of course it's obvious how connected she is with her family; her passion for modeling and her love of horses...but I wanted to know what made her tick. Her thoughts and feelings on current issues, the world around her. Too much was dwelling on her past relationships. To be honest she should have in all rights, written the book, then burned it as good therapy. Ok, I must admit it amused me a little but I wanted to read a book about Katie Price, but I felt she was just trying to justify all the bad press she had got in the past with her 'character' Jordan.
