why is it that every time anyone remotely famous or ex famous (or just not dead yet), comes here the papers role out a stroy of their desire to buy, build or move here......yawn.....PR machine fatigue is setting in again.

ps has anyone famous actually bought here or is it the usual hype upon hype were so used to?

So you didn't see Justin Timberlake when he visited the M-O-E the morning after his AD concert? He was charming...

likewise, but it is annoying that everytime someone vaguely famous is in the UAE the papers go on about them buying, eg the world must have been sold about 3 times over by now!!!

"It's a really amazing culture. I got to watch the sunset last night and that was just incredible. I love it really. So I bought some land," Timberlake was quoted as saying.

Err erm, righto squire!

Maybe it's just me but...... what a plonker!
