A few weeks ago it was some rapper who I've never heard beating the shit of his girlfriend who I'm fairly sure I've never heard of either. This was HUGE news. Seems like every news page on the web insisted on subjecting me to pics of Chris Brown hiding his face while getting in a car and some disheveled lady with bruises and a fat lip. Im sure the mindless tv shows like "ET" had entire episodes devoted to it.

The thing about that is that shit like that occurs EVERY SINGLE DAY throughout this country. Just go to your local courthouse and find the domestic violence courtroom. Worse than that, spouses kill each other just about every day. Sometimes the kids too. But the news and the rest of America doesnt care about problems and epidemics happening to real people. Only when it happens to them or a "celebrity" like Biggie Smalls or Chris Brown and Rhianna or whatever her name is. Domestic violence court orders are a joke and violated every day with impunity but you'll never see a story about that on CNN or "ET" unless it involves a celebrity.

Now we have this actress lady (who I also havent heard of) who died after hitting her head while skiing. Sure, it's a tragedy but do we really need an hour of programming on CNN to discuss it on Larry King? Every time  I pull up Yahoo News there she is, exposing her cleavage before the cameras in obviously better times. Never mind that people who ski fall down, break their bones, become quadriplegics and die just about every day too. Just spend an afternoon in the Barton Hospital ER in Lake Tahoe and you can see the people being brought in by helicopter every couple of hours.

What is the fascination with these celebrities? I can go back to the original OJ Simpson trial and the spectical that turned into. Now I see John Mayer all over the place. Who the fuck is John Mayer? You can't go grocery shopping without seeing a dozen celebrity magazines and tabloids with sensational headlines.

People who rap or act in movies or sing yet half of them would be part time waiters/waitresses or in the case of rappers, criminals if it werent for the public's excessive need to have diversions like movies and people rapping about how bad the shit is getting.

I only wish the news would stick with the actual news about real people instead of the disproportionate coverage for all these celebrity douche bags.

What i did find somewhat disgraceful is the headline on the vile tabloid daily rag, the Sun, this morning.

"BROKEN MAN"

it proclaimed...

then a near full page picture of...

"a distraught Liam Neeson seen here in tears after his wife dies in tragic accident"

You don't fucking say?

Leave the bloke alone for gods sake, his wife just died, it's not fucking news that he is grieving.

Also..it wasn't tragic, it was bad luck.

At least it's not in the sense i was taught to believe what tragedy meant.

Aside from being a Bee Gees song obviously.

Um, Bra1n? You've never heard of Natasha Richardson? Her mom is Vanessa Redgrave. She was an extremely talented actress.

That being said: last night I was watching the news, and the fucking reporter was broadcasting from right in front of the funeral home in Manhattan where supposedly Ms. Richardson's body was being prepared for whatever. How ghoulish can you get? And poor Liam Neeson; I can't imagine how shitty it must be for him to have lost his wife and have to deal with asshole paparazzi lurking outside his door like a bunch of jackals.

As for Chris Brown and Rhianna: I agree, nobody gives a rat's ass when a regular woman gets killed because her fucknut ex husband or whoever broke a restraining order and smacked her head in, or when a fucknut ex husband is found driving around with a loaded .38 and a Mapquest with directions to his former spouse's home. I mean, okay, it's too bad Rhianna got beat up, but it's not really news, now is it?

Nice.  :rotf:

Never. I've heard of Vanessa Redgrave but couldn't tell you what's she's famous for other than ripping the government or someone at the Oscars in the 80's.

That's part of the point. To me, all these entertainers are just that - entertainers. They are fungible (remember that one, Rabbit?). If one dies, there are a thousand part time waitresses waiting for a turn to take her place. I mean if Will Smith, Snoop Dog and Ice T can become huge movie stars, what does that say about the talent requirements?

I could see some considerable attention being given if the guy who mapped the human genome and was on the verge of a cure for cancer bumped his head and died. But a freakin' actress?? Hours on CNN? Come on!

I detest the status of "Celebrity" to the nth degree.

Why the hell am i supposed to care more about the life's troubles of a person because they take up a little time on TV? It baffles me that people have a vested interest in the lives of someone they do not know and are incredibly unlikely to ever meet in the flesh.

Surely the most appalling example of this was the mass hysteria caused by the death of Princess Di? Jesus Christ the whole world went into mourning and hour upon hour of television and untold wordage in the newspapers made it seem like a catastrophe of world shattering proportions had occurred instead of the death of one young woman in a car accident. Fuck yeah it was a tragedy for her family as it is with the death of a loved one at any time but, give us a break, why should i give a flying fuck??

At the moment in the UK the big news story is the forthcoming death by cancer of a girl called Jade Goody who is famous only as a thick as shit contestant on Big Brother some years ago and following on from that she appeared on celebrity Big Brother and caused a few waves by insulting an Indian woman who was on the show and a big racism issue ensued. This girl, sad as her death is, means absolute diddly squat to me and i object to my factual news programmes and newspapers being splattered with pictures of her bald headed and looking sad.

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK!

OMG, Princess Di was the ultimate in celebrity worship making the world stop. I remember watching it live in the wee hours on CNN before they pronounced her dead and intensely hoping that we would pull through but once she passed, that's it! Report it and move on to the next story.

Sad as it was, she wasn't an indispensable figure of human kind. Trading on the markets didnt have to stop nor people around the world have to take a day off work to mourn her passing. When it comes down to it, the only reason she was famous was because of who she married. That's it.

She used her fame to bring attention to land minds which was good but Hollywood superstar and former member of NWA, Ice Cube could probably do the same thing with HIS fame. Not a real big deal. The way people who didnt know her were carrying on crying for days as though the world took a giant step backwards in the progress of history was sickening. What about Dodi? He died too and no one gave a shit about him!

The Rhianna/Chris Brown thing I think was a good eye opener for young girls to see who love Rhianna and also who thought Chris Brown was a squeaky clean singer kid. yes it happens every day, but young girls need to see what can happen even to people who portray themselves to have it all.

I am so F U C K I N G sick of celebrity news - Paris Hilton really made me sick of it and Britney Spears, Brangelina and now Octo Mom with the paparazzi busting down her garage door to try to get the best shot to sell to a tabloid. If grown ass adults would stop wasting their fucking money on these shit rags, there wouldn't be any money in it anymore and they would stop. Can't stop people from watching though. Irritates the shit out of me.

I feel better knowing Bra1n didn't know who Chris Brown was because I'd never heard of the guy before.  I've heard of Rihanna but never heard any of her music....or if I have, I must have changed the channel or just not paid any attention.

Only when it happens to them or a "celebrity" like Biggie Smalls or Chris Brown and Rhianna or whatever her name is.


Biggie Smalls is brown bread mate  :wheelchair:

The Rhianna/Chris Brown thing I think was a good eye opener for young girls to see who love Rhianna and also who thought Chris Brown was a squeaky clean singer kid.


Oh yeah, check out the youth of Boston who think that "she farkin 'add it cumin' to 'er the farkin slaaaaag"  :confused:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/deadlineusa/2009/mar/16/rihanna-usa  oh fuck ! I'm getting roped in  :hammer:



On a lighter note, somebody reported seeing a giant shuttlecock the other day, turned out it was Jade Goody in a wedding dress  :wheelchair:

I blame all of the fat, lonely housewives out there for this sort of shit. If these lazy fucking parasites would find something more constructive to do than read National Enquirer, browse PerezHilton.com and watch Entertainment tonight then the media would stop covering this sort of shit. It's being covered because it sells. It sells because fucktarded imbeciles need to entertain themselves through the lives and stories of others because they don't fucking do anything with their own lives.

I agree but i think the media should take the initiative and stop catering to that crap to begin with. I dont mind it being confined to some waste of space show like Entertainment Tonight, just dont force it on me everywhere i look when i want to get the real news.

It is a sin that they devote so much time to it and not a single fucking minute of the news with live coverage of what went on in Iraq or Afghanistan - 2 WARS that this country is involved in.

That's why Bush was able to get away with it for 8 years. They placed restrictions on embedded media being able to ride with the troops and no one said anything about it. Al-Jazeera has much more war coverage than the US.

Deb, he's brown bread but he was another one that made the news every time he farted. People are still writing stories about him. A fucking faux-gangsta rapper.

You know something, you have a good point there. We need the media to help us stay on top of our TR Celebrity Death Pool standings. People, please disregard this entire thread.  :grin:

Much ado about people who are not all that important.

Like Ang said......give us the facts and move on.

"So and So.....actress and wife of actor See and Say died today as the result of injuries suffered in a flashlight battery changing accident.  Apparently she tried to hold one battery in her mouth while removing the dead battery and when she gasped at the marvel she had performed she swallowed the battery and choked to death.  Her husband is shocked and saddened by the tragic death.  She was 35."

OK......Next bit of news please!
