It’s all Greek to me.

On the heels of the shocking news that Greece’s much beloved pop star Julia Alexandratou has been linked to an underground porn tape in which she stars the country has gone into a state of shock as it is forced to assess the values until recently it had been embracing with the passion of a barracuda fish swimming downward in a waterfall.

The Independent explains for us:

When the Greek pop star Julia Alexandratou released her anthemic 2007 single “The Target is Cash”, she was seen as the definition of a good-time gold-digger in Athens’ free-spending, credit-fuelled Noughties. The racy accompanying video helped the 23-year-old Greek-Briton to minor celebrity status.

Of course at this rate, this pretty much describes a typical Tuesday night in downtown LA or NYC

But now Alexandratou has become known for another kind of video, after a porn film in which she stars went on sale. Instead of focusing on the state deficit, the public has welcomed the distraction of a bout of soul-searching over the nation’s morals. The DVD has sold 240,000 copies in ten days.

“It’s a big scandal in Greece, it’s the first time a Greek celebrity did something like this and it got out,”

Strange how a country like Greece can be so distraught over such drama in light of the view they invented scandal, but of course Hollywood has taken it’s turn and turned such things  into arm chair popular culture, which these days makes it acceptable for young women to spit at the world, flash their knickers and sell to the highest bidder- except it seems in Greece, given the Greeks are suddenly despairing with the realization that they have become a satellite state of Hollywood.

Last week Alexandratou issued a statement requesting that the media “desist from reproducing science fiction scenarios around my stolen private moments.

Of course the science fiction production turned into a mismatched reality sequel with the release of the following news:

Just as her story was fading from the front pages, her manager said she will marry a businessman, whose identity won’t be revealed until the wedding day.
