Celebrities Are Not Like You and I

Aug 17, 2007
As a society, America is quite the celebrity obsessed culture. We share an ever increasing appetite for all news and reports related to our favorite entertainers. Magazines like In Touch Weekly, The National Enquirer and Star Magazine have impressive sales figures as readers fight to get their hands news about both the personal and professional lives of those within the entertainment community.

No matter how incidental the news, readers of celebrity tomes such as In Touch Weekly Magazine and viewers of popular entertainment programs such as Entertainment Tonight, readers and viewers respectively continue to tune in. With so much information available about the lives of our favorite stars it is easy to believe that we know them personally. We look at them as a friend and tend make certain allowances for sometimes odd and even dangerous behavior. We put them up on a pedestal and believe that they are not to be judged by the same standards as the rest of us, sometimes with funny results.

My Mom Named Me Rainbow and My Sister Sonnet

The impending birth of an A list celebrities child can reach epic proportions. Bidding wars often break out amongst magazines like In Touch Weekly to publish the first pictures of the darling newborn. We wait with baited breath to hear the name that our favorite stars have blessed their little ones with. Traditional names such as Sarah, Christopher or Susan will never do. Instead we have names like Ocean, Banjo, Seven, and Puma. Should we wait for the name Loser? I fear the celebrity progeny will one day get even. I can see it now, the tell all book hits the shelf listing a number of abuses starting with the stupidest name known to creation.

Officer I Did Not Know the Speed Limit Applied to Me

In Touch Weekly and other celebrity gossip sources includes pictures and stories of stars that have somehow broken the law. We shake our heads when a well known movie star is in the middle of traffic raving about aliens, or intoxicated while driving down the highway in the wrong direction. Often the prognosis is exhaustion from working too hard. To be fair, you would be exhausted too if you earned millions of dollars for working only a couple of months, traveling the globe, and had people to see to your every wish and desire. Being a celebrity is really hard work.

I Think You will be my First Husband

Relationship breakups and divorces can make celebrity weekly magazines giddy. Readers bet on how long a Hollywood relationship will last, or how long before the divorce takes place before the wedding. The idea that those who are creative should not have to make a commitment to anyone or anything is for the sole purpose of excusing celebrities for their broken marriages, fractured families or for the complete mess they make of their personal lives.

No what they name their children, or how much trouble they get into it is okay. They forgive us for completely invading their privacy while we forgive them for being eccentric.
