Nope. No joke.

Her Wikipedia entry hasn't even waited for her body to cool before changing to past tense: "Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof (13 March 1989 – 7 April 2014) was an English journalist, television presenter and model."

Better wait for the cause of the death. I had a friend who was young, energetic, beautiful....died mowing the lawn..asthma.

Her father's statement is truly heart-rending.

No parent should have to bury their child. :(

Charlie Brooker's tribute:

probably totally lost spiritually...sometimes the most privileged in society actually have little of value to themselves...things just dont really cut it.

a warning for those desperate to own a house.

I would second that.

I have, over the years, met a fair few genuinely wealthy people in my time and a shocking percentage, in my opinion, seemed to live completely vacuous lives devoid of reason or purpose. In a fair few cases having children, even if they were genuinely loved, didn't seem to provide any new 'perspective' or impart sense of wider responsibilities on them - sort of almost as if the children were themselves also just 'possessions.

Needless to say, of course, it was (and still is) very easy to quickly pass condescending judgement on them as being selfish, ungrateful, etc.

ITV already decided on the evening news it was a drug overdose. How nice of them.

Evidently its not just shootings in america they wildly speculate about before bothering to wait for any actual facts.

A human life extinguished so young is tragic.

But youngsters die almost every day in car crashes, and most barely get a mention in the regional news. Why the media frenzy in this case?

Its the usual case of the "low hanging fruit"...she was IN the media and finding stuff out is a piece of cake...people the media know knew her, and many are very keen to get exposure.

Real journalism barely exists.

'No drugs and no suicide note': Police say death of Peaches Geldof at 25 is not suspicious

The Mail has a different headline, so well done ITV.
