Celebrity Hype

September 22, 2009 3:03am CST
Do you ever get sick of hearing about 'so called' celebs, like Jordan, and Kerry Katona? I am sick and tired, of seeing articles about Katie Price, and her shananagans, or Kerry Katona, prancing around on a beach with a bottle of booze in her hand. Lets face it, there are far more important things in the world, than what colour nickers Jordan is wearing today, or how much Coke, Kerry has snorted. This goes for a lot of these 'so called' Celebs, all over the newspaper, and the internet, posing for the camera on a boozy night out, or flaunting their latest beau! Who cares? There is the situation in Afghanistan, and our Soldiers being killed, and the apalling conditions they have to operate under, or the state of the economy, or the Health Service, poverty, ordinary people, doing extraordinary things, every! day. Yet, you look at the cover of a newspaper (most of them) and there will be stupid 'Jordan' plastered all over the front cover, with her bits out, looking like Barbie gone wrong, with some headline, or other, Jordan and Cagefighter lover share explosive sessions in the bedroom, or Victoria Beckham stepped out in a leather dress today! Who cares? Does the media really think we are ALL that shallow, that all we want to hear about, is these people, and their antics, and how they have earned a fortune, for basically being famous...for what?

well, I don't know who these people are, but I used to think the same way - Now, I still don't give a flip about "celeb-antics" but I do know that NOBODY can take a constant stream of bad news and that's why many resort to these fools and their goings on... Me? I just watch science or history channels and ignore the minor stuff, only listening to major events - until I've had my fill and go back to my own interests...

Hi forestgold, Wow!! girl you are soing o well here, you will get addicted to mylot soon if you are not already, when I frist started everyone used to say I have smoking fingers as I was here 24/7, lol! yes I do agree with you as far as I can concern they are famous for being famous with no talent that is why I never waste my money on buying newspaper of mags, and if I want real news I watch the news at ten or sky news, I think the media is just too raggy for me. Love and hugs. Tamara xxxx

I agree! and they are just giving the kids ideas to do these bad things that the people they look up to are doing. I mean, I know they are not perfect and letting people she the "bad" side of them is the way of letting everyone know that they are not all good. But heck the kids also see and read this stuff. They look up to someone and then copy even the bad things they do, because if so and so does it...they will too, because they want to be just like them. The media needs to stop stalking the "stars" and find things that we would welcome in the news to read about.

This is one of my pet peeves. I just don't understand celebrity worship and could not care less what they do in their private or public lives. They're just people and pretty boring people, too! I'll glance at the covers of mags in the store but I wouldn't dream of spending good money to buy them. Another thing I don't understand is the tabloids and their obsession with making up lies about celebrities. They're obviously lies and exaggerations, why in the world do people buy those things?!

hi forestgold oh how you have put into words the thoughts' I have had eventhough I dont know these particular celebs'I know a lot of others just like them like that idiotic hilton girl, forgot her first name, and Madonnna and several'other s who wear short clothes and long cleaveage and big boobs, they have affairs and etc and etc. and I always says who care. I do'not care. the economy in the US is worse than its been in years and my son and countless others are out of work,yet we get the front p age'for all the vulgar useless celebs. why not put them in the back and give us the real news for a change.

Paris Hilton, spoilt, shallow socialite!...she makes me wince! What another, complet, spoilt, non entity! She has as much talent as my hampster, but was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, so we are expected to bow and scrape! I think NOT! Its not that long ago, she was banged up, with the rest of inamtes of prison, for being an idiot! The mind boggles!
