I am going to take a chance here and offer up my opinion about something to which I have developed strong feelings. After this, I am going to let it go.
We have millions of people starving, homeless, and those who are having trouble paying for rent and mortgage in this country. That is why it is hard to believe that the media is so incredibly focused on such things as Beyonce’s Bangs and Snooki’s “no make up” picture. I find it hard to swallow – on one level. Do you?
Ok! Again, I understand that following celebs is fun, exciting, and allows us to take our eyes off of the problems of every day. I am also a Beyonce fan and think she is incredibly talented as an entertainer. But I can’t help but to believe that there are stories out there that are just as exciting, just as inspiring, just as engaging – about every day folks – as there are about celebs like Beyonce and Snooki. Would you agree?
Don’t get me wrong, I totally get the whole “marketing thing” that allows a celebrity to keep his/her name in the public eye. And I also understand and respect that “fans” want to be in touch with their chosen celebrity. I also believe that as a society, it is time for us to begin to “let go” of this need to know every little details of our famous ones.
That shared, I also understand that the celebs feed that need to know as well. about something that isIt would be great to hear a news bit about Beyonce reading a book of substance. Or about Snooki writing a blog worthy of real news other than getting drunk and spitting up in a club. Right?
Ok. I am done with my ranting and am going to “let this go” as of this moment. But I just had to share my simple thoughts in this complicated world.
