Celebri-spiral™: Enough Already

Our culture is in a celebri-spiral. We're conflicted over our ridiculous, growing celebrity culture consumption via magazines, websites, and TV shows. In 2007, my love/hate conflict made me take to the blog-o-sphere. All writing on this site © Dave Singleton 2009.

January 19, 2007: Too Lazy to Read Tabloid Crap in the Grocery Store Checkout? Read This

Thanks to The New York Daily News weekly coverage of crappy tabloid headlines for this craptabulous update. Now we know that Britney coverage of rumored "knock up" and new K-Fed look-a-like boyfriend beats coverage of Brangelina, Jennifer's supposed boob job, Simon Cowell calling himself an asshole, and Paris Hilton telling another desperate reporter looking for any ink and angle that she's "serious about acting."

Now maybe I can get through the grocery checkout line with my eyes averted and dignity intact. But probably not.

This is why I only shop at Fresh Fields. The gossip rags are replaced by Yoga Today, Out, and something with modern home design.

Fabulous take on celebrity versus authenticity. Hillary for example, her whole history has been of public service and responsibility, her political self is asstute and savvy and knows the game, and yet, the media wants to cover the non-existant Obama/Hill fight instead. And of course the wheel within a wheel of the continual brit/paris/jessica/parade of idiocy.Can I just please smack the living shit out of the 24/7 notreallynews channels, E, and all it's offshoots. Thanks Dave for putting some salve on the rash caused by the continual spin.
