Tabloid R&J

This is an interesting example of how it is possible to take something like Shakespeare's tragic love story Romeo and Juliet and place it into a context that is familiar to people in a 21st century context.
By reflecting on this article, and the Baz Lurhmann version of Romeo and Juliet, write a response that considers whether or not Shakespeare's work is still relevant to a 21st Century society. You should aim to make direct reference to the play (through direct quotations, comments on characters and analysis of the plot and it's themes).
