Hal­loween’s snot for me

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts the Goss -


She won Amer­i­can Idol in 2002 and went on to forge a stel­lar singing ca­reer, win­ning three Gram­mys and sell­ing 25 mil­lion al­bums and 36 mil­lion sin­gles world­wide.

Now 35 and a mother, Kelly Clarkson has spo­ken can­didly about the pres­sure the mu­sic in­dus­try put on her to lose weight at the start of her ca­reer, leav­ing her sui­ci­dal.

You’d think th­ese id­iots would have re­alised by now the only vi­tal statis­tic we’re in­ter­ested in is the size of a singer’s tal­ent.

I have never un­der­stood adults who go all out for Hal­loween.

You know the ones – they de­sign their own cos­tumes, get their make-up pro­fes­sion­ally done and hold ghoul­ish grown-up par­ties where ev­ery­thing is themed, from zom­bie cock­tails to green snot jelly.

Of course, I make an ef­fort for my kids. We carve the pump­kins, get the out­fits and have a tub of sweets wait­ing for Trick or Treaters.

But I’d re­ally rather turn off all the lights, put my head­phones in and watch a film. Does that make me a witch?
