A lot of celebrities are famous because they portray an image that the illuminati or other such groups want the general public to associate with as well as providing bread and circuses to distract the public from whats really going on. While some celebrities have talent others do not and although some celebities seem wealthy by comparison with a normal person in the street they are not really that wealthy compared with people like the rothchilds, rockerfellers or the murdocks Eg 15 million dollars is pitance compared to 15 billion dollars being only one thousandth as much. When you spend money like water you can quickly go though a few million dollars very quickly which is why when the large paychecks run out many of them end up going broke. With the exception of a few very famous celebrities for most of them thier fame and fortunes does not last very long. Thier used by date expires very quickly.
I would not worship anybody either talented or talentless because they are famous or they had money or both as they are just human beings like the rest of us. Celebrities have to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom and face challenges in life just like the rest of us. Some celebrities would be shallow while others would not and you cannot really tell by the media reports about them as these are designed to portray a certain image about a particular celebrity and not neccessarily their true character. This I know from personal experience having known a couple of celebrities who where very different from what the public was lead to believe they where. [/quote

I think it all depends on what makes that person a celeberty. For instance if your a celeberty that flashes your (****) because you too drunk to realize it and you gain fame for that(im looking at you paris)
or if your some kid that just happened to have famous parents that got you connected into the biz(Im looking at u kim,and miley)
or the ones that sign a direct deal with the devil to gain fame and money(im looking at u shakira, gaga, JayZ, beyonce)
then i completely agree with your rant.
On the other hand I think there are genuinely funny and talented people out there that were born to entertain and realized it. and went for it, and now there famous. and these are he ones that you dont see all over the tabloids. So dont hate all because of a few bad seeds.
No, I am not interested in what Jennifer lopez ate for breakfast yet that makes me limited in view by you apparently .
I'm not jealous sorry to disappoint you.
I am speaking about the " celebrity culture " and the peddlers and as well the consumers.
