Well,I am with you on the not caring about "celebrities." I couldn't give a rats' ass what so-called "celebrities " are doing. I often
wonder why the fascination with them...

The worst part is like it's their imaginary family or friends! Like somehow in the huge void in their actual personal, or family, or fantasy
life...they can fill it by being knowledgeable on all the stars?
But even that isn't enough-to have the gossip...they have to share it, talk about it...be seen as "in the know" or have others that want to gossip
or ooooh and awww over the rich and famous for it to really serve it's purpose for them.
Or it's like their secret need or desire to be seen as a celebrity themselves, so they fill the void with reporting on outside celebrity, so the
others obsessed with celebrity- can be "in the know" too through them because of this inside scoop they are giving...like somehow and by telling
others all about what they know about who's who and what they do makes them one step closer to the celebrity than others.
UGH. I mean I have a few fampous people of the opposite sex that intrigue me or attract me, and I'll briefly discuss that with someone who also has
an interest or a comparison-but thats as far as I go.
I don't know why this really bothers me lately-but I've just become disillusioned by some I've respected in the past, and irritated by others that
seem to just fall into the abyss of trivial pursuits-to the point of wanting to not just imitate a "look" but knows all the publically exposed
personal life and curent events of such person. YIKES.
Maybe it wouldn't bother me so much if I had a simpler, superficial life such as they...and not such an introspective, dark brooding nature at
times, with my skepticism, and occassional cynicism...maybe if I wasn't facing deep personal issues of losing a loved one to the ravenous beast of
"He's what in his mid-80's now?" she said dismissively...and continued with "So do you think I should get it cut short like _______(WTFC) or grow
it longer, just get a trim and get highlights, more like______ (again, fill in the blank with WGAF)"
like since my step father is so old, it should be expected he'd die of something now and her freakin hair cut and celebrity worship were more urgent
matters at hand...
That wasn't the entire reason for that rant-but she sure personifies those I'd like to shout out a big STFU to.
