Do celebrities like the attention? I have wondered that when I read articles and hear comments that the celebrities make about fans, people, and the pap. Here is my thing and I say it in the beginning so if you do not like it stop reading: they are people. I feel like that as a society we think that we can have an open window and door into are favorite celebrities lives however where does it stop. Personally, I do not care how much you “love” me, I have personal space. I do not know if this true, but I know that it would get old. Everywhere you go you have to be mobbed and screamed at. I understand that you like them, but I have a true issue with this obsession with celebrities. If you like them see them in concert, watch their movies, buy their CD, buy their gear, and buy their merchandise. However, sending death threats and nasty Twitter comments about their significant others is just stupid. Honestly, who are we to judge who they choose to love or date. Would you like it if someone treated you like that or judged you like that?
As a society and a culture we need to learn the difference between talented celebrities and reality shows. Reality shows are not talent shows or a skill show, they are a show that gives a overly personal look into the lives of “famous” people. Those shows I do not consider worth the time or the energy to watch.
Another issue that arise frequently is when a celebrity is caught hooking up, drunk, high, or shopping at the mall. Every tabloid, news show, and social media site have an opinion on the issue. But do are opinion belong in that forum? Would you want people commenting on who you are dating or what you did on Friday night? Honestly, the judging on what people wear is crazy. I know that it would make me scream knowing that people will be liking or commenting on my outfit. Imagining living under that great of a microscope. It would be hard for me to get out of bed and do anything.
Here is my last comment: why get so upset or hyper about someone that you do not like. If you do not like them ignore them. You ignore the co-workers that you do not like, so why can you not change the station on your TV. People need to stop saying the hateful, judgmental, and unnecessary comments about these people lives. If you do not like them, then have nothing to do with them. Do not follow them on Twitter, read the articles, or watch them. Personally, people that I do not like I do not waste my time or energy on, because I do not like them. Honestly, this blog has been a rant. I am sick of it, why do we think as a society is okay to judge these peoples lives. I hate to say this but you do not have the authority to judge anyone. Just because no one cares what is your in your closet does not give you the right to go sticking your nose in others closets.
