Why Celebrities?

March 19, 2009

Today was a pretty bad day on the celebrity front…First off, Natasha Richardson died from a freak skiing accident. Awful, but I think it overshadows the worst of the day, who is…Kanye West. He barely escape receiving felony charges against him, back from when he tried to beat up that pap and the TMZ cameraman.

Why is it that so many celebrities, just like Kayne, are in trouble with the law lately?  We’re supposed to look up to these people, right? But I personally don’t want to look up to someone who beats up others, or ends up intoxicated, driving down the freeway. When I think about the fact that these people – Kayne, Chris Brown, aaaaaanyone who has had a DUI – I just feel ashamed that we idolize them, that our children look to them as role models.

Just my rant for the day.  Nothing much going down here, except driving half across the state and doing my federal income taxes. Woo. (But President Obama was on Jay Leno tonight, which actually was pretty awesome!)
