To most eight-year-old boys, the idea of a sartorial dilemma is whether or not to change tops after a Heinz spaghetti spillage. Spare a thought, therefore, for Romeo Beckham, who must now get up every morning knowing that he has to live up to his billing as one of Britain's best-dressed "men".

Youth is clearly no bar to fashion sense, to judge by GQ Magazine's Best-Dressed List, which has placed Romeo Beckham, aged eight, in 26th position, a few notches behind the Prime Minister, David Cameron. No doubt some will say that this positioning owes less to Romeo's own fashion sense than to that of his parents. Presumably, they are the guiding force when it comes to his choice of clothes. Still, much the same cavil could be directed at many an adult star whose apparently expert knowledge of this year's hits and misses in truth depends on the acute fashion instincts of a dresser.

What do men want? It's an imponderable question which I feel strangely unqualified to answer. I suspect there are quite a few men who feel like me: I have an aversion to shopping, contempt for most advertising, only a vague notion of where I'm going in life, a bemused attitude to extreme sports, and a fairly strong conviction that repeatedly showing me images of semi-naked women will do nothing but make me feel depressed, frustrated and grubby. So when I leaf through a pile of men's magazines, I can't help wondering who they're addressing.

Magazines come and go, and then some stick around forever. In the summer of 1980, three magazines launched, almost all at once, each one of them in their own way representing the new cultural and entrepreneurial zeitgeist of the decade. Style magazines, they were called – pejoratively, by many – and very soon they came to define the era. Street fashion, pop, film, nightlife, politics, the transcendence of self – these magazines were what it was all about.

Taking a leaf out of the Kate Winslet Book of Self-Deprecation for English Roses, Carey Mulligan has told US Vogue she would love to appear in an episode of Glee but has been told she is "not famous enough". This assertion, I should reiterate, comes in an interview for the world's most influential fashion magazine, the cover of which Ms Mulligan adorns.

Who knew Michael Bay was an animal-lover? The director of multiple Meat Loaf videos, lingerie ads and Pearl Harbor offered a hefty reward for the capture of the now-infamous YouTube puppy-drowner. "There is a disturbing video going around the news outlets," Bay's people blogged on MichaelBay.com, "of a blonde young woman in a red sweatshirt casually tossing squealing puppies into the fast-moving river one by one. Michael Bay... is offering a $50,000 [£32,500] reward for information leading to [her] arrest and successful prosecution." Soon after it was posted, however, the blog vanished again. Maybe Bay was told the girl had already been identified by web users, and was being investigated by police in Bosnia, where she's thought to live. Maybe he realised he'd been a tad generous: the maximum punishment for such a crime in Bosnia is a €15,000 (£12,500) fine, so the girl could split his reward for a tidy profit. Or maybe he just decided she had the right stuff for Transformers 4 – a criminal record might damage her visa application.

It took five whole episodes, but I've finally worked out what was bothering me about BBC1's Luther, starring Idris Elba as maverick copper DCI John Luther: the man drives a Volvo. Morse had his Jag, Gene Hunt his Audi Quattro, Rebus his Saab. But a Volvo? Would a maverick really drive a car with such an impeccable safety record? "Originally, Luther wasn't going to have a car at all," novelist Neil Cross, Luther's creator, explains in an email. "The producer pointed out this may prove to be impractical in a drama show... I wanted to give Luther the kind of car a man who didn't care much about cars he might buy, begrudgingly, when backed into a corner. He bought it 10 years ago from his erstwhile next-door neighbour, Fat Thommo Chitwood, for £500 and a David Bowie bootleg on blue vinyl. He suspects that at some point in its long history it was probably stolen, because there was a half-eaten packet of Murray Butter Mints in the glove box. It's probably still there."

British Budget speeches do not customarily raise laughs, but on Wednesday Alistair Darling prompted loud guffaws, and not only from government benches, when he announced a new information exchange agreement with Belize. The hilarity was because this Central American state is where Lord Ashcroft, bane of Labour marginals in the run-up to the election, shelters his zillions. The new agreement is unlikely to have any dramatic, revelatory, effect, but it was a much-appreciated touch.
