I’m that guy. That guy who rails against celebrity nonsense and why it’s in the forefront of news these days. But I’m guilty because I read a bunch of blogsites who follow celebrities around. http://www.drunkenstepfather.com, http://www.idontlikeyouinthatway.com, and egotastic.com are just a few that I’m guilty of checking everyday at work. Lately, nothing much has been going on, Hayden Panettiere was chillin’ in Japan, protesting some commercial dolphin killing and Paris Hilton was going to Halloween parties. None of this means anything to me. It doesn’t affect my life in the slightest. But, I read it, I think I read it because I enjoy watching beautiful people do their thing. Regardless of what their thing is, they do it beautifully.
I was sure that was the key until the whole “New Britney” started her shenanigans. I call her “New Britney” because “Old Britney” was hot, sexy and desirable. “NB” is kind of a dog, completely saturated with drama.
So at the end of the day, ugly, formerly beautiful people screwing up their lives is usually just as entertaining as beautiful people doing beautiful things.
