Interesting design... an easily accessible (gossip news) frontpage.

A lot of photos, big headlines, almost no content. Completely uninteresting.

Which is why the kids will probably love it... :-)

Photos are content too, and I think the site does a good job of bringing those bad celebrity snapshot magazines to a website. Whether that's good I don't know!

Actually, it reminds me of the front of a gossip magazine (which I guess is what they were going for) but multiplied by 12. And LOADS of people buy those magazines based on the cover story which usually consists of just one or two pictures and a couple of big headlines.

Now, whether that's completely uninteresting to you depends on whether you're into celebrity gossip...

This kind of site really shows you the difference between Yahoo and Google...

Can you imagine there ever being a Google Gossip?

Google doesn't need to test rumors. The Great Google already KNOWS.

Just wait until Google Maps Street View expands to most other cities and becomes a little bit more real time... we'll get loads of celebrity snapshots :)
