Google’s bizarre and rubbish celebrity boyfriend / girlfriend feature

July 14, 2010 3 Comments

Google tries to answer some questions itself, like how many horns a unicorn has. More usefully, it can tell you stuff like how many metres are in a yard or when sunrise is in London.

It also seems willing to try to tell you celebrities' dating status, although it appears to be quite rubbish at it ...

For instance, look under the pictures with this result and Google says Angelina Jolie's spouse is Billy Bob Thornton - but she hasn't been married to him since 2003. And she's adopted a squillion kids with Brad Pitt since then.

Angeline Jolie - with Brad Pitt now

Although Google still thinks Jennifer Aniston and Brad are together - sweet (again, look under the pictures).

Jennifer Aniston - all alone still

Jordan and Peter Andre are divorced - Katie Price as she now is married Alex Reid recently. But Google's totally, like, OMG, I'm not having that.

Katie Price and Alex Reid - car crash. But married.

Katy Perry is engaged to Russell Brand, not dating Travis McCoy.

Katy Perry - can't see it myself

I suppose Elin Woods is still Tiger's spouse until the divorce comes through.

Elin Woods - soon to be rich

But Nicole Kidman is not married to Tom Cruise - he's with Katie Holmes now. Poor little Katie Holmes (poor big Katie Holmes from Tom's point of view).

Nicole: didn't have to keep quiet during birth

Back to the drawing board with that one, I think ....
