Get Your OWN Life

I ended the last post with, “Celebrities are under the microscope too much. This sounds like the beginning of a new post.” Well here it is as promised.

These items are true (or at least reported as being true):

  • Jack Osborne likes to wear purple.
  • Jaime Pressley had a birthday, barbeque bash at her house last weekend.
  • Diddy kept his party guests waiting for over five hours while he caught up on some sleep.
  • Lindsay Lohan will testify at her mother’s fraud lawsuit. She is also known to party too much according to her studio.
  • Liv Tyler has a big zit on her nose.

    Why do we care about these things? Let me rephrase, why do YOU care about these things? I certainly do not. I don’t care if Jennifer Aniston is getting married or getting dumped or even been caught by the Paperazzi TAKING a dump. It just doesn’t matter.

    Maybe someone can explain it to me. Do people live vicariously through celebrities? I hope not, because there aren’t too many good stories they are involved in other than the ones screenwriters created for them.

    Don’t get me wrong. I am not campaigning for their privacy. If they want to cash in on their celebrity, they have to take the good with the bad. It goes with the territory. I am just not fascinated with Lohan getting blitzed, or Jessica Simpson giving the finger to Nick Lachey’s new love interest (not that she did). I don’t care one way or the other. Why do you?

Unfortunately, too many people idealize their own lives based on what they believe celebrity lives are...Soap Operas, same thing...people get hooked and then engulfed in the fantasy of it.

Stars are NOT what they were, via media standards. THere are no more Clark Gables, Bette's and Bogies. THe glam and the class have all but disappeared.

Funny you write of this, I was thinking this morn about a Tabloid that had an article in regards to a crappy car a star was driving. I thought, So what! Being a star...has nothing to do with the house, the car, etc...
Just let these people live their lives and bring me good movies, entertain me...thats all I care about.

I could care less! I don't have any magazine subscriptions, I refuse to watch reality T.V., I don't watch the tabloid news shows on T.V... I have enough issues in my own life to worry about let alone care who is doing what to whom..... Tawnya
