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 8, 2007: When Mr. Blackwell's List Seems Oddly Moral, Something's Very Wrong

As creepy as Blackwell and his Worst Dressed List is, this year he seems oddly moral in his denouncement of celebuskanks Paris, Brit, Loho, and Toho (as in Spelling). When anyone can make Mr. Blackwell come off as redeemable, it's time to question our taste in celebrities.

My only gripe is Meryl. What? You disagree? No, no, that's not a question. She deserves a pass. She looked absolutely fabulous in The Devil Wears Prada. That's all.

1. Britney Spears and Paris Hilton (tie) ("Two peas in an overexposed pod! Style-free and fashion deprived... ladies and gentlemen, the 'SCREAMGIRLS' have arrived!")
2. Camilla Parker-Bowles ("The Duchess of Dowdy strikes again! In feathered hats that were once the rage, she resembles a parakeet from the Jurassic age. A royal wreck.")
3. Lindsay Lohan ("From adorable to deplorable, Lindsay is tragically trapped in fashion's fast lane.")
4. Christina Aguilera ("La Diva Christina is a dazzling singer, But she puts good taste through the wardrobe wringer! All crass, no class!.")
5. Mariah Carey ("Mariah the fashion pariah has finally found her stylistic niche … let's crown her the Queen of Catastrophic Kitsch".)
6. Paula Abdul ("Wrapped in floral fiascos that grow moldier by the hour . . . She's a lumpy stem on a bumpy flower. A fallen fashion idol.")
7. Sharon Stone (""It's clear Sharon's'misplaced her fashion gift. An over-the-hill Cruella de Vil - after a seismic shift!")
8. Tori Spelling ("All chills and no thrills, Tori's down and out in Beverly Hills! She's definitely under fashion duress - positive proof that more is really less!")
9. Sandra Oh ("Layered lunacy - from toes to nose.")
10. Meryl Streep ("From Streep you could weep, her beauty of a career cannot be denied, but that beast of a wardrobe is pure mother of the bride."))
