Because There’s Nothing Else Going on in the World
In the past I have written a lot about celebrities. Sometimes shamelessly fangirling, but other times to lure you in with pretty/sexy/cool and then WHAM-POW hit you with a political or social issue (please see the poll I posted today).
But let’s face it. I am HARDLY a credible news source. I’m not even Fox News Credible (see what I did there). So if I’m writing about celebrities as opposed to the war in Iraq, it’s frivolous and silly but hey, you don’t come to me for quality reporting. For that you’d have to go to, like, the Associated Press or something.
Look, there are so many places I can go with this. Let’s just do this in a bullet list:
- Britney Spears is a celebrity. While she will help you sell papers she is NOT a potential Democratic or Republican candidate for the presidency, potentially possesing nuclear weapons, committing genocide or KENYAN.
- Not everything Britney Spears does is news. Honestly? I don’t care if she drank coffee at 3AM and then took a shit in someone’s backyard.
- I don’t want to sound like Chris Crocker, but honestly, just leave her alone, okay? It’s not amusing anymore, it’s not funny, it’s not a joke. It is quite literally the media putting the destruction of a human being on display for the world to see and laugh at. It’s not “pretty people have problems too” it’s not “she’s a person of interest.” She is a mentally unwell woman who needs serious help and having cameras pointed at her is NOT THAT HELP.
Back off, find some REAL reporting to do or at least find a new celebrity to poke with a sharp stick, okay?
