Celebrities

You know what, Dear Reader, I am sick and tired of hearing what Britney or Lindsey or Paris or any of these other asshats are doing. I don’t give a farthing whether Lindsey drank champagne or Paris partied till the wee hours of the morning or even about Kevin Mr. Britney Spears Federline. I mean, holy shiite, people, do we have to read about Pam Anderson divorcing/not divorcing the latest clown she’s married to? Who, I might add, is famous only because he had sex with Paris and then sold the tape to the highest bidder. One article I ran across mentioned aerial coverage of Britney being loaded into an ambulance. Aerial coverage? Someone actually sent a helicopter to get video tape of her being put into an ambulance. They sent a H E L I C O P T E R people…

What is the fascination with these people? Is it that we all love to see a good train wreck? Is it that we’re jealous of their lifestyle or their money or their fame and we love to see them come crashing back to earth? I’m just amazed at the amount of time and effort that’s put into tracking what these people do.

And please don’t get me started on the celebrities who think we should listen to their opinions on world politics or global warming or the price of oil. I defy any of these people to give me an original thought on the subject instead of parroting back to me things they’ve heard or been told by their PR people. I don’t care that Obama and Oprah went on a tour of Iowa or that Susan Sarandon supports this candidate or that Sean Penn thinks they all suck. I don’t care. However, I do think it’s funny that Hilary finished 3rd. THIRD!! HAHAHAHA! Sorry…got off track.

I’m not trying to sound bitter, Dear Reader, I’m just sick of this morbid fascination with people whose sole contribution in many cases, is nothing more than making us believe they are someone else, i.e. Martin Sheen as President. You are not presidential just because you play one on TV.

Anyway…what do you think? Am I being overcritical? Am I just as much to blame since I know who Pam Anderson is married to? Ack…I’m just sick of it.

    Howard,

    yep, Martin Sheen isn’t your president…….but I’m pretty sure he’d do a better job than the dude you’ve got doing it just now!
