'Obsessed opera fan' is stalking Katherine Jenkinsmain
It has to be true, because I read it in the Daily Mail. And she related it herself. But there’s something wrong with the description.
No self-respecting opera fan, obsessed or otherwise, would give more than a passing glance at Ms Jenkins who has never sang more than a three-minute aria without taking a break.
And no Katherine Jenkins fan, whatever his or her degree of obsession, would claim to be an opera buff. These are contradictions in terms.
Sadly, the English language is suffering a terrible defeat at the hands of synthetic singers who are marketed as opera divas.
