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.

March 23, 2007: Now THIS Is a Celebri-spiral! Check Out Lily Tomlin's Meltdown

Go, Ernestine, go!

Celebrities are not like you and me. This meltdown between Lily and creepy, self-indulgent director David O. Russell-captured on film, God bless YouTube- is yet another example of how the Gods bestowed on celebrities the gift of special rules for behavior.

If I were a celebrity, I'd call all my actors the C-word, hurl papers, and just yell fuck-fuck-fuck throughout my day like a parrot with Tourrette's. What would you do?

Jesus Christ, this is amazing! I want to be famous so I can have a tantrum too.

I love this clip but also find it kind of scary. D.O.R comes off as a major prick in this clip (accurate, I am sure) but you need to see the follow-up clips of Lily terrorizing the entire cast, including Dustin Hoffman who obviously snapped out of the Method for a moment. I think he was afraid he was about to be killed.

Hollywood is full of pretty people, but it is an ugly, ugly place.

David O. is CRAZY. He's the one George Clooney fought with because of David's hitting/bullying on extra on some movie.

I would love see someone in my corporate world do that! So sad that this is the only pr Lily Tomlin's had in years! If I were a celeb, I'd be off adopting kids with Pitt in exchange for covers of all the rags!

In response to Suzanne -- I saw that clip too and poor Dustin was trapped in the passnenger seat of the car, unable to open the door and you can also see Wahlberg for a split second trying to get the "f" out of the back seat. For a small woman, she is scary.
