1.71 – Dysfunction > Dedication

Daniel Craig, the James Bond dude, recently made a comment about the Kardashians being “f**king idiots.” Damn, Bond really knows how to hit the nail on the head.

The Kardashians, along with far too many others, live a life of fame and fortune for…nothing. Scratch that. They live a life of fame and fortune for scandal, appearances and everything else outside of talent. But isn’t that what our media is made up of? People who are famous for nothing. The Jersey Shore cast, The Real Housewives of (Insert location here), Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton (haven’t heard anything about that one in awhile), etc etc.

  • The Real Housewives should be called The Typical Housewives. Milking their fifteen minutes of fame for all it’s worth, they encourage the cameras to role through divorce, petty drama, shopping sprees, business ventures and spousal suicides. Perfect time to release a book! Cha-ching.
  • The Jersey Shore cast gets paid to be drunken, walking sexual disease transmitters. Perfect time to release a book. Cha-Ching!
  • Lohan goes to jail, gets out, does more drugs, goes to jail, gets out, drinks some more, spreads eagle in Playboy, will probably go to jail soon. Bet she’ll be putting out a book soon. Cha-Ching. Why would people pay to see her crotch in Playboy? Just wait for her next drug binge and see the crotch shots for free via TMZ.
  • Marriage for 72 days and yet KK is talking about having a baby on her show. How did you go from baby talk to divorce? That was hella quick.

Craig couldn’t have said it any better although he could have said it sooner. But at the end of the day, I’m going to say what Craig didn’t. We’re all f**king idiots. These fame whores wouldn’t be famous if we didn’t watch. If we didn’t talk about it. If we weren’t so quick to buy in to the poor display of money hungry vultures that has become our Hollywood.

It baffles me how these people are considered famous and yet you see struggling artists, musicians, writers, dancers, actors…but you don’t see them. Because they haven’t attached scandal to their skill. It’s quite discouraging. Why bother? Our world relishes garbage and refuses art. I can only hope for the day when the dialogue will flourish over artistic dedication instead of human dysfunction. Passion instead of payrolls. Skill instead of scum. I’ll keep waiting.

  1. I read an article in a magazine the other day that questioned whether he was being overly mean. Its amazing to me that you don’t see authors, painters, composers on tabloid covers. These people probable have their issues but it’s not rubbed in the worlds face. Because they can find notoriety by actually doing something.
