    To me, people are just people,

    I'd never cut myself for Justin Bieber or cry when meeting....I don't know, Will Ferrell? (I'd probably laugh more) Maybe this is because I generally don't look up to people and I don't look down on them either. I've never had a "hero" and put more faith in my own thinking or...

    Kardashians

    I find this family absolutely repugnant. Obviously, they will shill any product for a buck. They offer nothing...and I find it so irritating that the media is obsessed with them. They are materialistic spoiled brats and it sickens me they are given so much attention, and are in a...

    I Never Had A Problem..

    Until it went and got blown way out of the water.  I used to love watching The Kardashian's on E! but lately with all the marriage bullshit, I've realized that people are way too obsessed with these people who get paid to be something they are not.  I remember when I was little...

    Ugh, Being In a Group That Has a Paris Hilton Avatar

    Is hard for me to swallow...she stands for so much that I despise...I don't get how people think celebrities are so amazing.  I think they believe the hype.  Here's the thing: there are machinations at work here that we, the public don't see, such as how these...

    The "Celebrity Fakes" phenomena is beyond baffling, as it seems so US centric ...The ImageFAP website has an entire category devoted to it, yet wealthier Europe underproduces celebrity fakes.

    Confused, and also really disappointed. I am a big believer in the potential of human beings. We are the top of the food chain, we accomplish amazing things every day. Mostly though, it seems that our potential these days is cashed in on Big Macs, (un)reality TV, and this...

    Whitney Houston

    Celebrities: Every Famous Person Is Writing A Book And What Is Up With Talk Shows?

    Every late night talk show has a “famous” , or not so famous, person on it night after night who has written a book. A great many of these people are people that I have never even heard of, or barely have, and it makes me wonder why people are buying their books even though...

    Including idolization of famous preachers

    and so-called prophets. Let them be well-known if they are good or bad, but let's not worship them. And no, So-and-So does NOT have eyes like Jesus' eyes - he looks like something not very nice.

    Never Understood Why People Loved Celebrities So Much.

    Even as a child when someone asked me "Who is your hero?" I never had an answer for them. I don't have a hero. I love people, but no one comes to my mind that embodies everything that I admire. I guess because I always knew no one was perfect, and...
