I have a question for you, how many of you follow celebrities? Which ones do you follow? Is there one that you are sick of hearing about? Well I am sick of hearing about the Spears' girls. I have enough drama in my own life that I don't need to add to it. I'm sick of the pregnancies, the break downs, the drugs, and the divorces. Oh I forgot the ex husbands. I do care what happens to Brit's kids, because they are kids and can't help what mom and dad are doing. Come on Brit get a clue for your kids. I sort of feel like it's the American public's fault that this trash is out on the news. Honestly, it is our fault. If we didn't buy into the tabloids then the news wouldn't have a market. More importantly, I wouldn't have to hear about the Spears' drama. I would much rather hear about real celeb news.
Take the tragedy that happened to Dennis Quaid and family. No one should have to see their kids in the hospital, and no one should have to go through what those twins went through. Clearly, there is a big difference between, Brit and the Quaid's. Brit's news is largely all about the drama. The news about the twins is something we all need to worry about. It could happen to any of us, when we are in the hospital. At the same time, we do tend to feed the demand for this drama mill.
We feed the celebrity gossip pages. These stars are put up on pedestals by us their public. We want to know everything about them. The industry and the tabloids glamorize these stars, while we build them up and then when they fall, it us who buys the magazines and the tabloids to hear about it. We pay the wages that allows for them to be followed around by camera. They are humans. You and me wouldn't want someone else to throw our trials all over the Earth, so we do we ask the same be done to our stars. Of course sometimes, I admit there are times when, it needs to be addressed.
I think in the case of O.J. Simpson and Mr. Vick. We need to know. Our voices need to be raised up against acts that are illegal. We need to let our teens know that when a sports player is punished for steroids use that it's not cool. They don't need that influence in their lives. We need to keep track of the real news, and let the other so called news get dropped to the can. In closing, if we must hear about a star, why can't it be something positive or at least anything that isn't Spears related.
