Spin Cycle: Celebs, they're just like us

Ok, so most of you probably saw my post last week about changes and it was due to the Spin Cycle. This came from Jen at http://www.spriteskeeper.com/my_weblog/2009/04/celebrity-cycle-spinning-up-the-celebs.html. She is the mastermind behind giving me something to write about once a week! This week is celebritites and anyone who actually knows me I LOVE celebrities.

The thing I don't like about celebrities is when they talk about failed romances and marriages and how they are just like us. Like Nick and Jessica. Oh my goodness. If they couldn't make it can Leo and I? I mean honestly people. We have camera crews in our house 24/7 so it would only be truthful to say they are just like us. Ok, maybe the camera crews I have are our big picture windows and while Leo and I are very similar to Nick and Jessica (in the way we behave, not how we live!) we definitely have a stronger chance of our marriage surviving. If I am having a problem with Leo I do not tell my closest friend who then goes to the highest bidding magazine and spill all the dirt. When I leave the house without my wedding ring I do not have paparazzi following me saying, "Ooohh girl the ring is off, what did he do this time." I would probably just turn around and say holy crap I hope I didn't leave it close enough to the toilet or in arms reach of a 2-year old but hey, I'm sure that was what Jessica was thinking!

I guess I just feel like the world invades their privacy and I am not going to say that I don't love a good headline like Lindsay's cover of US Weekly that has a sad shot of her looking all sad and lonely saying "I am So Alone." You just want to buy them and read all about it but you always do and they never have the actual person commenting for the article. UNless it is Heidi and Spencer but they are just creepy altogether. So as much as I do love reading about them I do know that they are not like us and that's probably a good thing because I don't want to read in a magazine that I have gained 5 pounds or that leo is stepping out on me. All's fair in entertainment and life.

I will leave you with one quote from Miley Cyrus that is still driving me crazy a week after reading it. She said something to the effect of "Anyone can take a Prada outfit and make it look good but I like to go to Forever 21 and find something and make it look good." Yeah, Miley, normal people do take stuff you find at Forever 21 and make it look good. Just because you are a celebrity shopping in a non-boutique store doesn't mean that you are wearing shambly clothes. People take clothes from the DAV all the time and make them look good. Don't act like you are somebody. Sorry. I just needed to get that off my chest! :)

I admit, I look at the People website every morning before work. :-)
I hate Spencer and Heidi too.
You're linked! Great Spin!

I try very hard not to think of Miley Cirus's god complex in a negative light. But really, how else can I? It's hard. Thanks for the spin!

I'm not so sure Prada is for everyone. Just saying.
