Hottie Bin Laden?

GQ: It Isn’t Easy Being the Sexy Bin Laden
What’s in a name? Plenty. Especially if you’re trying to become a sultry little pop star and you just happen to be the niece of public enemy number one

“You know Wafah bin Ladin?” Valvo asks the men loudly.

“Wafah Dufour,” she snaps, shooting him a look that’s more pleading than hostile.

The niece of the man who orchestrated the destruction of the World Trade Center seventy-eight blocks to the south has a point. After September 11, the name bin Laden (which is how it’s spelled when referring to Osama) turned radioactive, borderline satanic-by-association. It made her feel cursed, presumed guilty—made her wonder if it might keep her from ever getting a record deal. So she took her mother’s maiden name, Dufour, which makes for a better first impression, even though the bin Laden taint is always there.

At least she looks better than her Goddamn uncle. Of course, that is not a difficult fete.
