I was just wondering why some people, particulary girls, are so interested in stupid celebrity gossip shows such as Entertainment Tonight, and the tabloid magazines? Why do people care what Ben Affleck wore to a baseball game? Why do people care what restaurant Madonna ate it? Why do people care whether Julia Roberts wore her hair up, or down, while going to see a play?

Ya man, no idea. Its all bullshit. If there's anyone who watches Entertainment Tonight should be strangled and anyone who who's interested in something on that show should be sent to Siberia, stripped of their clothes, thrown in a lake and left to die.

Good thread.

TRUE, TRUE, and TRUE.

Hate that shit - celebrity bullshit. I'd like to smack a "celebrity" who thinks that because their job is to act in movies that they deserve special treatment.

Dave Chappelle has a good bit in "For What It's Worth" about why the fuck people want celebrity's opinions on shit that actually matters. "I wanna know what Ja Rule thinks about this!" LMAO.

I just think it has a lot to do with peoples facination to be famous. To be in the spotlight and be known. I think it also has to do with the fact that to a lot of people who feed into those things it shows them just how "normal" celebrities are. I personally don't think anything special of anyone famous seeing as how there as thousands of people out there that make a lot more money than celebrites but are not known at all. What makes them different? Just cause they weren't in Titanic or they're not getting spins on the radio, but they're getting that paper. Those are the muhfuckas I wanna know about...

I'm thinking of starting a magazine of my own... The Rich and Obscure, think it'll be a hit?

I was just talking about this with a friend. Why do people obsess with celebrities? I think part of it has to do with self esteem and part has to do with American's obbsession with the wealthy class. All you see on TV are shows about rich people, it's like wealth automatically makes you a celeb. Another part has to do with the gossip thing like dude said above. The people that obsess with celebs are probably gossipers anyways, and what's easier than gossiping about a bunch of fucks whose lives are all over TV and magazines? Did you hear this? Did you read that? Did you see this? It's rediculous.


What's the last intelligent thing you have heard a celebrity say (outside of music) ?

Easy- people feel worthless and unimportant. But as to why they look to brainless self obsessed talentless "celebritys" (whatever that means) I dont know. Why dont they focus theyre confusion over life on something worthwhile or itelligent, instead of wasting theyre life watching how celebs dress and behave and walk.

Society is braindead. Theyve managed to get people not give a fuck about the important issues, so they can go ahead with theyre corrpution and destruciotn of the Earth.
