The secret powers of Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is a classic example of how some celebrities can really divide people. She can push all the right and wrong buttons seemingly at the same time. Take the extraordinary circus that surrounded the birth of her child Shiloh. To the outside world it seemed like some mad three-way wrestling match between three different characters who just happened to look a lot like Jolie. In the red corner we have Ms Pretentiousness flexing her tattooed, but very poetic, muscles to bestow the name Shiloh or ‘the peaceful one’ (obviously) on her daughter and the fact that she wanted to give birth in Namibia “because it was the cradle of humankind” (well, you would, wouldn’t you?). In the blue corner we have Ms Mega-Diva with her no-holds-barred demands. These include forcing a ‘no-fly’ zone over the resort where she was staying; having an intrusive photographer imprisoned for three days; refusing journalists visas and the Namibian Government declaring Shiloh’s birthday a national holiday.
