Real vs. Ridiculous

There are so many things going on in the world these days, it's hard to know what to pay attention to. Iraq and Israel, Capitol Hill issues, what politicians are being brought up on charges for different things, and the local issues facing us everyday when we wake up in the morning. One thing I know we shouldn't be paying any attention to is Hollywood Gossip. We have celebrity garbage that is posted all over yahoo news and AOL news, and for what purpose?

The Tom Cruise escapade on Oprah, along with the TOMKAT proposal, the media feels that we need this knowledge in order to survive. I guess we're supposed to raise our glasses and toast to the terrible/ridiculous escapades that cloud our vision while we're trying to watch the 5:00 news. Sometimes you just got to know when to turn the channel.

No one should care that Paris Hilton is taking time out of the spotlight in order to have a life of her own. Paris Hilton has never taken one ounce of my attention until this very minute. I don't care what she's wearing or who saw her breast fly out of her shirt, or how she ended up on a farm way out in the middle of no where.

All I want to know is when my friends are coming home from Iraq. And how long its going to be until Cancer is cured. And how many people do we have walking in the breast cancer walk. Please give me anything that's real, anything that's about anyone that lives in real life in real time. I shouldn't care about Katie Holmes hooking it up with the Tom Gun hottie (who is now crazy by the way). Although I feel bad for her cause now he's going to make her into a crazy person. But that's her deal. I just want to know what's going on in real life. Don't we have enough on our plate without adding the Hollywood sign into our daily routine? Give me one example of celebrities in real life! And no "Chaotic" and "Newlyweds" don't count.

You mean Chaotic isn't real? Damn, I was so excited..... So much more realistic than waiting for my boyfriend to come home from Iraq...

I agree,
I think everyones' obsession over celebrities is crazy.
I wonder if any of them get tired of the attention...?
