So, the Oscars were this past weekend, and the only things I can seem to remember about them are selfies and pizza. Oh those celebs, see they are just like us. Eyeroll. Of course they’re like us, they’re people, not statues forged out of pure gold.
The celebrity pedestal is one of those things that has always been there, though I’m not really sure why. Forget service men and women, or local heroes, or even figures who’ve shaped our existence, nope I’m going to idolize a person who played said people in a movie. It’s a sad thing when you really think about it, that famous celebrities are constantly getting our attention in the news, yet we overlook war, crisis, famine, death…the economy…the world.
But still, people are constantly looking for their 15 minutes of fame, or that one youtube video that will make them go viral (hate that word). It’s incredibly stupid. Obviously, fame has not been a good thing for many celebrities, aka check all of those child stars who grew up either crazy, locked up, or dead. Looks to be one of those ‘you want what you can’t have’ deals.
Hey, if that’s what you want, at least to some degree, then let me quote, if I may, Mizz Britney Spears: “You wanna live fancy, Live in a big mansion, Party in France, You better work bitch”.
