Am I the only person who gets annoyed at people for idolizing celebrities? Not just athletes, but movie stars, TV stars, musicians, etc. I can understand wanting to succeed at your particular goals like someone else did, like a young black man wanting to be President because Barack Obama became President, or a Little Leaguer wanting to make it to the New York Yankees because Derek Jeter did, but what I don’t get are people that want to be like the Kardashians or any of the other reality show trash that litters our cultural landscape.
On what planet is a family who made their “fame” off the back of a sex tape where the female participant got peed on, role models? When and where did we decide this was acceptable? I must have missed that meeting. These are disgusting, immoral losers. They’re garbage people. They belong in a trash bin with cat litter, soiled diapers, and rotten produce dumped on their heads. If that sounds harsh, good. It’s meant to be. I like brainless, silly entertainment as much as the next person, but I’m smart enough to know the difference between a person or people worth admiring, and a person or people who are not.
