Chelsea Clinton is hot. I've always had a thing for her.

Of course, those Bush girls are cute too, but I'm not into degenerates.

Accompanying Madge and Gwynie to a fashion show...

Nobody coins kooky nicknames like the British press.

It was all over the morning news & chit-chat shows. Matt Lauer (who saw the full-size pictures, not the clipped one above) said "And Chelsea ... that's a dress..." with exaggerated understatement. Came pretty close to seeming the funny uncle there.

There's a Carnac the Magnificent joke here waiting to get out.

I dunno, all three of them remind me of the stuck up girls who wouldn't give me the time of day back in high school, so quite frankly I'm not surprised that they're hanging out together.
It's kinda no surprise that Chelsea has fallen into the Hollywood celebrity scene since as somebody once said "Washington is Hollywood for ugly people."
Of course as someone who's too dumb for DC and too ugly for Hollywood, I may just have a case of sour grapes.

Funny. I'm only into degenerates.

Madonna should really look into getting some bigger glasses.

madonna should worry that she's starting to look like courtney love.

Apparently the nickname "Madge" was coined by Guy Ritchie.

Why is Chelsea Clinton's social life anyone's concern? Who cares? This is a non-story if I ever saw one.

I've met Chelsea Clinton. Her curly hair was one of her best features.

Does anyone else find it a little ironic that, given the extent to which Bill and Hillary went to forbid any media attention of Chelsea, now she's swanning about with celebrities?

Also, I think a much better picture would have been of Gwyneth and Chelsea peeking out through the ever widening gap in Madonna's front teeth.

Am I the only curly-headed person who found this article annoying? I could go on a long-ass rant about how the media reduces young women to one feature and the ways in which that objectifies and opresses them.. but I won't.

And, an interesting bit of Madonna trivia - she hates the nickname "Madge." Everyone in her entourage has been forbidden to call her that. She insists on being called by her full first name at all times.

I love that woman.

When she was being protected, she was a minor. (And that all got started because there certainly were plenty of sidewise comments in the press that she wasn't naturally attractive. The most famous? Mike Myers delivering the line Chelsea Clinton? NOT a babe in a Wayne's World sketch that particularly upset her mother.) Now that she's an adult, she's free to do whatever she likes.

Meantime, Dad's not having a bad time in Israel. It's not Madonna, but . . .

I see her all the time out clubbing in Oxford - and then a few feet away, a couple of not-too-inconspicious secret service agents. Same in the libraries - except they stick out even more, as they bury their noses in the eighteenth century transactions of the House of Lords and pretend to be fascinated. Yes, she's just any old student, but she's any old student with a security entourage. Her new chums enjoy the same - mixing in celebrity circles might be the closest she ever gets to feeling normal, perhaps?

arielmeadow : Madonna was called madge ages before Guy Ritchie got involved - I see something here in in 1994....

Woohoo. There was (is) a good Onion-wannabe mag at my alma mater that reported on her lesbian tendencies. I always had a thing for her as well.

I've always thought that Chelsea Clinton had a lot of class. I also hope that she has a brilliant plan of revenge that she's going to unleash on the media for the way she was treated as a 13 year old.
