Celebrity, the Great American Deception! Ode to Lindsey Lohan

            I have had my fill of celebrities telling me what to believe.  So I have some questions for all the celebrities who want me to believe like they believe.

 

            Why should I listen to someone who is really good at reading lines someone smarter than them had to write?

 

            Why should I listen to someone whose only claim to fame is that they can become someone else on stage or in front of a camera?

 

            Why should I listen to someone who wastes more energy in a 5 star hotel suite in one night than most of us waste in a month?

 

            Why should I listen to a group of people who spend more time holding award shows to build up their self-image so that we will be impressed with them?

 

            Why should I hear about politics from someone who never received an education, even though they can play an educated person in the movies?

 

            Here is clue, if your claim to fame is that you look good on the front of a magazine cover, or you can pretend to be someone you are not, or you won an award from a group of people who do the above, maybe you should close your mouth and spend your money more quietly.

 

            Most of us have never been to Hollywood.  We are watching your movies to forget about the pains of life for a time.  We are not watching you because you are smart, or because we think you have anything of value to share.

 

            Entertain us for a time; then, enjoy your drug infested parties, sleep with whoever shows up.  But stop thinking you have anything of value to add to our lives beyond your art.

 

            Why should I care what celebrities think?

 

It is a simple answer; it seems to me that most celebrities cannot think.  Maybe those of us who wait to see what Hollywood has to say really are the stupid ones.
