Sick of the celebs
Are you as tired of hearing about the misadventures of Tom Cruise and Katy Holmes and their poor little rich girl, Suri, as I am?
When I sign on to my Internet server, it seems like every other article offered is about their divorce... either that or the Kardashian floozies.
I wouldn't mind that so much but Cruise's (I call him Tom Cruise-control) permanently affixed smile makes it a tad hard to take.
I never could abide the guy when he was a teen heartthrob and I like him less as each day goes by. What has he ever done of any importance other than having the ability to cry on cue and pretend to be someone he isn't.
Who cares which one of the two caused the breakup and it doesn't matter much, it's hard on the little girl. Even though she has all of the advantages of two overly-wealthy parents lavishing her with attention (and I presume gifts), divorce is still very difficult on kids.
She's already been enrolled in a very private, exclusive school where she'll be surrounded by other ultra rich kids from around the globe.
It isn't just Tom and Katy that bothers me. I'm getting tired of reading all of the headlines and TV reports about "celebs" did this and "celebs" did that.
Mostly the stories revolve around their weddings and, soon thereafter, their divorces. It seems that anyone who has ever been in front of camera for more than 38 seconds is labeled a "celeb" and their yo yo visits to rehab facilities are presented as important current news. Why is beyond me.
Many, if not most, of them are simply overpaid bums... and that includes our often unemployable "celeb" senators and representatives from both the state and federal levels.
I would understand the inclusion, into the ranks of "celebs," of sportsmen and women (though most are disgustingly overpaid all of which comes out of fan's pockets) because they worked hard to get where they are.
They didn't just have to win an election by smiling, pretending to be informed for the cameras and lying their bottoms off.
Wouldn't you rather read or see TV about some straightforward news?
I can remember when People Magazine was about, believe it or not, people. Now it is devoted almost entirely to "celebs."
Oh, for sensationalism, they'll throw in an occasional page or two about whatever atrocity has occurred most recently, but otherwise? "Celebs."
I have this message for Jack o' Lantern Tom Cruise-control. Give it a rest, Dude. We're all getting tired of being able to count your teeth.
Oh for the days of Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob and away from "pretty boys" and "artificially endowed girls"!
