I Feel Very Badly For Celebrities.

Fri Mar 18, 2005 12:21 am

I mean, in most instances,

-they come from less that extravagant, less than rich backgrounds...

-make it big time, making more movie thatn most humans wil see in a lifetime...

-then lose all sanity and credibility by becoming wife beaters, murderers, pedophiles, tax avoiders, drunk drivers, druggies... (insert your etc here.)

-I mean, to make it that far in life that you are financially set and you go and make all those shitty choices, (yes, choices) and throw it all away

- and have hte limelight on you the entire time.


Last thing I need to hear about in the AM is how badly you fucked up in life.

But man, don't you feel so bad about them all?

I'll feel badly for them right after I drag my balls through an open flame about 300 times.

They are, for the most part, very stupid people. Many of the celebs that end up train wrecks are lucky to have finished high school. They have no personal management skills and hardly any intelligence to build their own personal management skills, that is why they cannot cope with suddenly having money.

I don't feel sorry for celebrities at all. With the exception of a couple people, celebrities are all greedy, spoilt, fastidious bastards (and whores) that deserve every moment of their lives to be a living hell only to die prematurely and land themselves in the deepest circles of Tartarus for all time.

Celebrities are the most disgusting public figures on the face of the planet. You'll understand what I mean if you read a majority of the celebrity articles on:

I don't feel sorry for any celebrities. Just like anyone else, your life is the result of the decisions you make. Regardless if you make movies or come into a large sum of money, you're just like anyone else.

That's all their own damn fault. When I started doing "stuff" when I was 6, my parents took it and immediately stowed it away out of my reach for retirement or down the road some day....still many years from now. I've even still had to work on the side throughout college to pay for my own education and any valuable prizes I have wanted along the way.

Oh quick, let me get my violin !

Celebrities have far too much money and not nearly enough sense - what happens to them is largely self-inflicted. I'll see if I can generate some sympathy after I finish my 9-5 underpaid overstressed day job.

Celebrities do my head in - I really get annoyed with them and those people who follow their lives religiously. Grrr. Do I care that X is dating A? Not in the slightest.  Smile

You work 9-5 at your age and you're living in France? I'm surprised you just don't go on strike.  old

While most of you note the sarcasm in my post, I can't agree with:

Celebrities are the most disgusting public figures on the face of the planet.

There are the rare few that are respectable. But they are rare.

Otherwise, I'm just  stirthepot

I think Celebs (and pro Athletes for that manner) are some of the most overpaid, arrogent and ingnerant people out there. When the complain about stuff like 1,000,000 dollars an episode is not enough or treat the fans that Pay their salarys like Shit it pisses me off to no end. We can live without them. I think instead of the cast of desprate housewives getting a pay raise it is time to give Police, Teachers, and Firemen a pay raise.

If there weren´t so many of you who are inanely fascinated with "celebrities" there wouldn´t be a problem in the first place.
So for the very least, stop complaining, okay?  Yeah sure

...nor would their be any celebrities.

These people exist as they do solely because so many are (for whatever ungodly reason) inanely obsessed with them.

Where I do feel a little sorry for Celeberties is when a certain range of privacy is invaded or when a-holes stalk or harrass them. Being a celeberty doesn't mean one opens up the bedroom door or for the public to see things that should be private or be a victim of identity theft. It also means that people shouldn't annoy them in their daily lives either or stick a camera in their faces every time they leave the house or have papparzzi harrassing their childeren or spouse. Yes, some are some celeberties that act like jerks, but how would you act if you, lets say won the lottery or were a big sports or movie star, and you cannot protect the public from knowing things about you that are no one else's business.

Oh, case in point, like Letterman just went through? Yeah, I can honestly say, in his case, I truly do feel for him. I mean, the guy seems decent enough, leave the guy alone, sheesh.


But this thread is about those tried and true clowns out there witht the Oh so difficult lives and choices they made. Boo hoo hoo

I kinda feel sorry for them too. I mean.. once they became famous they have like no privacy at all. Crowds follow them like crazy, and they're really never left alone. Than again.. they chose the career, not me: so why should I feel sorry for them?! They made the decisioN!
