Why are we hooked on celebrities, athletes and musicians? This was a topic discussion with my teenage sons and they made some good points. But first
we were talking about our 2014 plans on what needs to be put on the calendar for 2014 when a commercial on TV came on and we got discussing the
What do celebrities and athletes and musicians do for us. They entertain us right? But why are we always hearing about them on TV, in the news, or
even in the checkout lines at the stores. So we started to make a list out loud.
Reality stars, they are no one special, who really cares about what the Kardashian sister do, or what happens to that old guy that spoke his mind
about his beliefs about gay ducks. The bottom line is all reality TV has some sort of drama put into it to keep our attention. So why do we care
Athletes, this got interesting, we all agreed that they are overpaid crybabies, good point being is look at all the quarter backs in football last
year that moved around or did not get picked up by a team, or these guys sign a new contract and get injured and are out of the game for the rest of
the year, same goes for basketball and baseball, any sport now is shadowed in steroids, or someone is in court convicted of a crime, like murder,
rape, drugs and DUI.
Movie Actors are in the same boat, I think it’s really uncalled for when people come out and say being an actor is like being in Afghanistan, or the
actress believes that she won’t get caught drinking and driving, or they turn into some sort of tramp. We could really make a good list on this
Musician’s, surprising on this one we really could not come up with many bad apples in the crowd besides that girl that sticks her tongue out all
the time, and that west guy who is back in court for the 100th time, or deciding that they are going to retire at the right old age of being in their
teens with their pet monkey.
So why are people hooked on these people? They don’t help pay the bills, put a roof over your head, put food on the table or put you through
college. They all have talents and were inspired to make it in their field but once they made it they all get greedy and selfish in their behaviors,
are any of them making a difference to our kids, are they good role models for our kids. Are they really worth the money that they make?
So this coming year we decided that we will avoid all the above, we have better things to do than getting involved with all the above, we will not
purchase anything that is sport, music or Movie related. Will have to keep an eye on the wife though.
I think it’s sad, back in the days I can remember great actors and actresses and athletes that were good role models, musicians were another story,
but it seems they have cleaned themselves up more than any other industry out there.
So why are you hooked on these people? I would like to know so I can share with my teenage kids.
