More security than for the Prime Minister [obvs] more hype than for the President [you know the most powerful man in the world, yadda yadda]. On second thought, she probably has more $ than the Queen, and most definitely more influence! Oprah has taken over Sydney and is climbing the Harbour Bridge today – after accomplishing the required other [visit to Uluru/holding a Koala/Great Barrier Reef/etc] quintessential media activities.
There is even a big red ‘O’ on the side of said Bridge. The news and talk-shows can’t go more than 2 minutes without talking about her, and all the politicians posing for pictures look a bit like the average kid who got a chance to be friends with the most popular girl in class for a day.
Humm, this will do more for Australian Tourism than ‘where-the-bloody-hell-are-you’ and ‘Baz-Luhrmanm-most-expensive-tvcs-ever-that-no-one-really-saw’ campaigns combined. I just want to know how much Hamilton Island paid to get her there, perhaps ‘The-best-job-in-the-world’ didn’t have quite as much tail as hoped? All said, I do wish I was going to the shows! Now lets get Ellen out here!!
