the celebrity gossip craze

Click here to read a great fan rant on the $200,000 Heath Ledger video that Entertainment Tonight pulled.

The author makes some very salient points about our disgust for celebrity behavior contrasted with our insatiable hunger for gossip about said behavior. There is lots of Hilton/Lohan/Spears bashing and he is not choosy about casting blame at us as consumers of that information. I don't know about ya'll, but I've come to the point where I change the channel/radio station/webpage when something comes up about those three because I am so weary of hearing about their latest hangover or near-OD experience. Too much money or fame seems to do no one any good.

Would you be able to keep yourself under control if you're bank account suddenly swelled with several million dollars and the world started to adore you?

OK, I'll give it a try...just as an experiment, mind you...

I admit it...I'd love the chance to try!
