alexander mcqueen suicide

British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home this morning in what appears to have been a suicide. McQueen was just 40 years old. People Magazine says

According to the Scotland Yard report, “Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 10:20 a.m. [Thursday] regarding a man found dead …The deceased is believed to be 40 years old and from London. The death is being treated as non-suspicious at this time.”

Britain’s Daily Mail reports that he hanged himself in his luxury apartment.

McQueen’s death comes days after the death of his mother, Joyce, and almost three years after the May 2007 suicide of his close friend Isabella Blow, who discovered the designer and helped launch his career.

Wow, so much death and tragedy. In times like these, I always turn to the Bible for strength and inner peace. Wait, I’m sorry — that should have read “boobies.” I always turn to boobies for strength and inner peace. Won’t you join me in ogling Irina Shayk’s rack as we mourn the death of the man responsible for this shoe? Amen.

From the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue:




Ryan Jenkins, the “Megan Wants a Millionaire” contestant who murdered and viciously dismembered wife Jasmine Fiore last weekend, has been found dead of an apparent suicide in British Columbia. According to TMZ

The manager of the Thunderbird motel [says] Jenkins checked in on Friday. He was dropped off by a woman in her early 20s who drove a silver PT Cruiser with Alberta license plates. She stayed for about 20 minutes and wasn’t seen again. The room was paid for two days. When Jenkins didn’t check it out today, the manager and his nephew went to check on him. When there was no answer, they entered the room and found Jenkins hanging by his belt from a coat rack.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Duncan Pound said: “Preliminary evidence suggests that [Jenkins] took his own life. Any further details will not be released at this time as this investigation remains in its infancy.”

Wow. Cosmic retribution. Well, like Justin Timberlake says, “What goes around comes around.” He also says “See these shackles? Baby, I’m your slave” and “I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave,” but I don’t think those are really appropriate. Let’s try and keep it classy here.
