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.

April 14, 2007: Take Today's Celebri-spiral Poll

Full of celebrity crap? Then keep saying to yourself, "Imus rest, Imus rest," and take that breather along with me, people. No more of the scary, vilified man in the cowboy hat for awhile. Instead, turn your attention to Ad Age's latest poll, which is right up the ol' celebri-alley.

The most recent poll topic: after years of an exponentially expanding celebrity-obsessed culture, you thought the public's appetite for Britney's bare head, Katie's romantic prison and Anna Nicole's early death could never be sated. But the weeklies that peddle those stories are, it seems, finally hitting a ceiling. Even though publishers and beach readers say it ain't so, there are suddenly several reasons to believe that the giants of gossip are maxing out.

Warped celebri-spiral readers know that I wrote about this a few days ago. Since Ad Age has not published the results yet, what do you think? Based on our limited celebri-world view, is America's seemingly insatiable appetite for celebrity magazines finally starting to wane?

Then, get revved-up-judgmental and let us know if, dammit, it should wane.

I am not giving up US or In Style until you pry them from my hands.
