There can be no doubts about the fact that Will Young, 2002 winner of the ITV competition Pop Idol, is a cigarette smoker. There are countless pictures of him smoking a cigarettes, in plain view and quite unashamedly. I would say ‘good for him’ because it’s fun to see someone who is not afraid of what people will say about their bad habits, but it’s cigarettes we’re talking about. They’re gross and smelly. Dig this picture of Will Young smoking a cigarette.
What amazes me is that these people are all in show business, where looks count for everything, and singers, whom you would assume have a minimum of respect for their voice! Nope, smoke that cigarette! That’s worst than saying that they’re living in the present, it’s saying “I’m living in the present and I punch myself in the face for kicks.” Not brilliant.
