We, as Americans, care more about famous people than ourselves. This is evident by the massive support for crackheads. Don't we usually frown upon drug addicts and place them on the lowest of the social ladder? So why are all sucking Charlie Sheen's cock and getting all in Lindsey Lohan's grill? Do we honestly have nothing better to do?
Why do you like her? She's not even that attractive after her coke binge....
This is something I've never understood. Unless you are a person who is famous for doing something great, I never got why people would idolize the people we do. An exception might be someone who shapes a generation; Michael Jackson and other high profile musicians, for example, might be considered an exception to this. But we're in love with Ke$ha and Rihanna, who do nothing but make millions and millions of dollars singing about the stuff we were told to avoid growing up. Ke$ha can't even fucking sing. Have you listened to her without autotune? Now you have: (skip to :30 for the best part)
There's tons of shows that glorify celebrities over stupid shit. Congrats, Justin Guarini had a kid. You gotta be happy for anyone choosing to be a parent. But what makes it any different than any other person having a kid? Just because he was on a TV show? It's stupid to me. More people can recognize celebrities then they can political candidates. I read somewhere that only a small portion of the country could identify the current GOP Presidential Nominees. Does that seem right?
Where have our priorities gone? We, as a country, are sinking into the shitter. Why care about people we don't even know when we can't even take care of ourselves?
