It is one of my only hopes in life that at some point, we as a society, will come to understand the lengths that some people will go to, to become
famous. I mean, look at Mark David Chapman. He assassinated John Lennon to have his name recognized. Shot an innocent man, then sat on the steps of
The Dakota to soak in the glory. Nowadays, we see pop stars participating in faux-weddings, suicidide attempts, racial slurs, "wardrobe
malfunctions", anything your mind can comprehend, these people are prepared to do. Any press is good press. Has Spears ever been in the media more
in her life than in the last month? Not a chance. We are buying into these games and reinforcing their need to be known. People like Paris Hilton
need to be recognized, they need to be "known", and they can not be "normal" like the rest of us.
By buying these magazines, by reading the tabloids, or watching these excuses for a television show, we are enabling these individuals to get rich off
of nothing. It truly, and honestly, makes me sick.
At this point, I feel for them. I sympathize with them. Spears especially who has two young children at home who desperately need her. Cameras,
media, spotlight, who gives a damn? Stars seem to forget what is really important, until it is too late.
Let the darkness rise on their story, their lives, and the nonsense we put up with on a daily basis. There are real, honest, hard working people
busting their ass to make less than minimum wage. Put their names, their faces, and their stories on the front page of the paper. That is
something that I would buy.
