Lindsay, Amanda, Justin, Paris and even Britney are all examples of where our society is going wrong. We shouldn’t be focused on the tragedy. We should be focused on achievement. Where are they now? What are they up to? Why are we only hearing about them when they mess up?
I realized how everything I read and embarrassingly almost everything I write is focusing on a negative angle of whatever topic I am interested in at the moment. Maybe it’s time to change that.
Okay, keep Justin Bieber. I don’t care to hear about him in any capacity, but when it comes to the rest of them I think it would be great to start hearing regular positive updates. For years we have had minute by minute updates of:
“Lindsay Lohan is late to court”
“Amanda Bynes is accused of a hit and run”
“Britney Spears flashes the world”
“Paris Hilton does something bad that she does bad”
“Justin Bieber is arrested… again”
But now that, with the exception of the douche bag Justin Bieber, these women are trying to get their act together. Why aren’t we nearly as interested as we were when their lives were falling apart? I want to hear more from the media about how the stars have turned themselves around and how we can learn from their actions. I realize it is covered some in the press, but at a fraction of the percent their mistakes have been covered. I want to hear things like:
“Amanda Bynes starts healthy living lifestyle, here is how you can over come addiction.”
“Lindsay Lohan faces the real life struggle of reintegrating into life after rehab with the use of a sober coach. Learn how a sober coach can help you!”
“Britney Spears celebrates life by becoming an organ donor.”
Why must we forget about them when their lives turnaround? I realize there is some positive press out there. I know Lindsay has her documentary and Britney has her Las Vegas show, but unless I am missing something I think we only discuss the positive changes at fraction of how we talked about the negatives. Now is when we as fans should be supporting the stars like Lindsay, Amanda and Britney. Why aren’t we? What is wrong with our society?
Instead we are just turning our attention to the next celebrity disasters. Oh Miley, please pull it together. I am too in love with your art to lose you to the crazy side of celebrity.
Why do I care enough to write this?
