Sometimes it feels as though I'm the only one who really doesn't give a damn if celebrities die. I mean in all honesty I see no reason for me to be sad other than them not making anymore movies and even then I'm not that down about it. So some leave families behind etc. But who cares? I mean, 4~ people die in Iraq every day and people like Heath Ledger and Anna Nicole are/will receive more airtime than reg. people dying. But does the media seriously need to cram it up our asses so much? I mean I can't turn the TV on without hearing about Britney Spears going crazy or her stupid ass sister getting preggo. I'm sure theres more interesting and life changing things going on so why not report on that? But this whole reporting on meaningless things is just all that crap that continues to mislead the public and stray them away from items in the news or events around the world that ACTUALLY matter. I mean just recently a Gen. was being interviewed and said that the US may stay in Iraq until 2018 because they have too much to do, but no one reported on that, no. Instead its all about Jamie Lynn spears getting knocked up and how Disney wants to do a special on it. Anyways, just my rambling, but does anyone else feel somewhat the same way? And if not why? Why do you believe that Celebrities are more important than present or future events that can either make our lives worse or better?
(btw I also confirmed this with a few of my marine,NG and navy pals, the whole 2018 deal)

Another question, anyone think Actors/Actress, rock stars and rappers etc. get paid too much? As far as endorsements go, since they get paid shit by their label kinda, unless their a major band.

yes, i totally feel the same way! And I think football players are like totally overrated too. They get paid so much, and other people in the world are suffering from poverty.

What gets ratings gets air time. When the public at large collectively stops caring about the who's whos of the world, we'll keep seeing it. It's our right to change the channel. As for how much they make, well that's directly proportionate to the profit they generate. If it wasn't financially sound, advertisers wouldn't bother. But for some reason people remember to buy the underwear worn by Micheal Jordan rather than a bunch of celebrityless fruits. *shrugs* Just how it goes. When that changes, so will the pay grade for the media whores.

Back in the day, we made a thread about the best ways to kill celebreties. But that holds no relevance to this topic.

Well go ahead and report the thread if you can find one that poses the same type of question if you wish to play moderator that is. The question is simple, why do people pay so much attention to things (celebrities most of the time) than to events that actually matter? I bet that more people watched Heath Ledger reported dying rather than actual news. And each of those posts other than them actually having to do with Celebrities have nothing to do with this topic, I know my paragraph was confusing but it's not rocket science and it's not very easy to confuse "Dumb quotes" to this.
Well w/e I'm going to sleep.
