The latest sign of the apocalypse's imminence and the death of the media is a blond Austrian fashion journalist called Brüno. The Eurotrash bombshell will be shown strutting down the catwalks of America and interviewing the biggest stars of today when his eponymous film comes to our shores next week. We turned the tables on Mr. B., and had various celebrities ask him some of the hard questions that are usually his stock-in-trade.
