Holy frickin' crap!

Per Variety.com: "Sarah Jessica Parker is reeling after being ditched as the face of clothing giants Gap in favor of British singing sensation Joss Stone. The shocking announcement came in the same week Parker's Gap Spring campaign was launched and has stung the style icon. Parker raked in over $38 million from the lucrative advertising campaigns since the demise of hit US series Sex And The City."

THIRTY EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS! Reading that was the closest I've ever come to declaring myself a communist.

"A friend of the actress says, "Sarah's spring campaign for Gap has only just started and she feels the announcement of her replacement in the same week that the new ads are appearing is a bit of a snub. Joss is not only a teenager, she is a virtual unknown. Had her replacement been a big star, perhaps Sarah wouldn't have minded so much."

What a brutal, brutal fate. Really, my heart bleeds for this poor woman. At this rate, she'll end up living in the poor house with Oprah (see below).

Good lord, I'd love to have just 38 dollars right now.

Maybe the Gap has decided it doesn't need to try so hard to court the "bonier than a fireplace poker" demographic. Joss Stone's got a little bit of flesh on her frame -- not pudgy by any stretch, but not aerobicized to the consistency of jerky like Parker.

Joss Stone is unknown over there? Damn, we can't get away from her.
