THIS WEEK ON 60 MINUTES
WHAT A GUY
Anyone who believes in the saying “good guys finish last” doesn’t know Guy Sebastian. The enormously successful Aussie pop artist thrives on not having any of the often-seen fundamentals of show business. There’s no out-of-control ego, no temper tantrums and no sycophantic entourage. Instead, Guy relies on hard work and a loving family. Being decent though hasn’t been without its challenges. When he was starting out, he had to ignore the industry experts who said the young man with a very distinct afro hairdo didn’t have the look to be successful. But there was one thing they couldn’t deny: Guy’s extraordinary voice.

SUGAR AND OLD SPICE
Incredibly, right now in Australia there are more than 200,000 young women who have either become, or are trying to be, “sugar babies”. Their ambition is for a sweet life of pampered luxury, paid for by older, sometimes much older, men. For the so-called “sugar daddies”, the equation is simple: the wealthier they are, the more attractive they are. But as Sarah Abo finds out, it’s not hard to read between the lines here. The term sugar baby is often code for sex worker, and the male moneybags are often crinkled-up creeps. And that leads to a very important question: is this sugar baby phenomenon about empowering women or exploiting them?
