Was just reading one of my forums at Salon.com and found this gem:
One of the infuriating things about celebs, however, is the fact that they are waxed, dyed, buffed, sprayed, surgically-enhanced, capped, laser-whitened, styled and coifed, TO DEATH. Then they are held up to us mere mortals, (you know, people who have approximately 23 minutes a day to spend on personal grooming and exercise), as gods and goddesses of talent and specialness. It’s such absolute bullshit. These people are products of a well-oiled machine. The reason OK! Magazine says Britney can still make a comeback is because there are probably hundreds of people whose livelihoods depend on that little nutcase making a comeback.
to which I say AMEN, brother! That’s probably why people LOVE seeing them stumbling around, looking like dog poo. I don’t understand why these little idiots (Paris, Nicole Richie and LiLo) don’t HIRE someone to drive their drunk asses around. It can’t be that hard, right? I mean, if I were going out and planning on having, oh, a few beverages, I’d make sure I had a designated driver so I didn’t, you know, kill someone or myself. Bloody hell. How hard is that to figure out? Yeesh x 10.
