Who cares, and what is a celebrity blogger?Posted: June 24, 2009
As usual, while things are getting crazy in the world, it is hard to find out about the important things going on without being forced to endure the completely unimportant things going on.
My Yahoo front page could not wait to tell me about Perez Hilton, celebrity blogger, and his suit against the manager of the Black Eyed Peas. Apparently there was some face punching going on.
A lot of questions arise here. What entitles him to the title celebrity blogger? Is he a celebrity simply because he writes about people who are considered celebrities, or is that a self assigned title?
He is suing to protect his right to free speech. He supposedly was punched by someone named Polo Molina. Did the framers of our constitution really intend to protect us from someone named Polo Molina? Most importantly, how is this of equal importance news wise to a country being in the throes of revolution as Iran is?
Then we have the girl who had 56 stars tattooed on her face. Now she admits
she was lying. She is of equal importance on the CNN home page with US health care reform and nearly on par with the news that SC governor Mark Sanford went to Argentina for an affair and left no one in the drivers seat of his state.
Now, look, we all knew she was lying when the story came out. It really isn’t news to any of us. It definitely is not on par with whether or not we are finally going to get people in the US the health care they deserve.
On a semi related note, in an act of self promotion worthy of a celebrity blogger such as I am, I urge you to look at this young woman’s photo in the light of my earlier post – Seriously, do you really think that helps.
Last of all a double dose of Jon and Kate, veterans of my original who cares post. These people are unavoidable in the media. If they were the swine flu we would all be having night sweats. For the past few days it has been all over the news that these folks are now getting a divorce. Apparently one or both of them were going to Argentina to…oh, wait, that’s someone else.
Today I went to my email box and found that I’d been sent an exclusive offer for a sale on DVD’s of their show – 2 for 1. Does that mean that if I watch this crap twice the ending could change and they might stay together?
I don’t care.
