Does anyone besides me think that watching famous peoples’lives on television seems a little…well, pathetic?
Jessica Simpson is making an idiot of herself while her husband(what’s his name from 98 degrees?) takes her to an amusementpark, or while they drink, or while they ride in their car ordecide where to eat. I don’t think that this is entertaining.I think it’s disturbing that we considered it importantenough to be aired live throughout the world. They don’t makea difference in anybody’s lives; all that they do is makemusic that sucks.
Even if you disagree, even if you enjoy the poppy love balladsthat these two put out, what they do when they’re waiting ata drive thru or home alone shouldn’t really concern you.
Another show, “Rich Girls,” on MTV, is about exactlywhat it’s named. A promo for the program states thatthey’re followed with cameras “to see how they spendtheir mountains of money.” That’s it people.That’s the show.
At least Jessica Simpson has a record deal. These rich girlsonly have their money.
But, I can guarantee that there will be people sitting at homewatching intently as the rich troglodytes do common, everydaythings. Just like you and me, just with more money. Do I need areminder that I am a poor college student by watching these twoidiots spend, spend and spend more? Hell no. Making these showsalmost seems prejudiced against the middle and lower classes, as ifto say: “These are the people worth watching because theseare the people with money.” Meaning is equated to financialwealth.
There are plenty other ridiculous shows. “JoeMillionaire,” for example, is about waiting to see which ofthese greedy women will be tricked into marrying a man for themoney that he doesn’t have. What is the point?
Nothing but wasted time looking at excrement ferment.
Why these shows are so successful is beyond me… I can’tthink of any good reasons to watch them.
Next time you sit down to watch one of these shows, think aboutwhat it is that you’re watching.
Think about why these people are on T.V. and if you are contentwith the reasons you come up with, well, then you’re anincompoop. But, hey, that’s just my opinion.
