Celebrities are supposed
to be unlikeable. Otherwise, they wouldn't be celebrities.
Look. I haven't watched TV in years. I don't listen to the radio, I don't give a shit about podcasts from anybody, and I get almost all of my news from suckers who actually bother to pay attention to it, since news is unavoidable if you have any level of social contact. I'm a hermit by choice. I hate people by nature.
I've heard a lot about this Bieber kid as of late. I only saw one video after months of curiosity. It was, predictably, as horrible as I'd assumed it would be. A reminder that it's never too late to have an abortion, no matter how advanced the fetus has become, even well into the adult stages. Some fancypants doctors will call it "murder", but I think society would be more accepting if we simply referred to the procedure as "late-stage abortion".
Besides that one instance and mentions by forum-goers and the like, I've managed to avoid this and hundreds of other worthless, untalented, and annoying celebrities simply by investing virtually no interest in whatever the hell is happening in the world.
I mean, it's all happened before, and it's going to happen again. Spoiled celebrities are going to lip-sync while their little dogs have diamond-studded collars and billions of people can't even make ends meet, wars are going to be fought, anybody with any level of power, whether it's the king of a country of some forum elite with thousands of karma\rep\etc, is going to be corrupt, a total dick, or what have you, and everyone will follow after somebody powerful like sheep, people will get killed, robbed, natural disasters will do this and that, and fatasses will wonder why they can't get in shape and be sedentary at the same time.
You know, we're all going to die and deal with far more bad than good in our lives. What the hell good does it do to know about how there are people infinitely worse off than you, and people who won't have to ever steal food just to survive, and have the resources to have seemingly all of life's options open to them?
It's really not worth paying attention to any of this mainstream media tripe. There are books, games, movies, music, all of life's creative pursuits are enjoyable even if you're as hopelessly untalented as I am, and with information available in both books and the internet, as long as you have enough money there is always something new you can learn to do.
It is very much possible to go without thinking about celebrities. Just stop paying attention to the world. Does the world give a flying fuck about you? No? Me neither. Trust me, being an introverted recluse has it's benefits. I say an average of one word a week in real life. I usually work night shifts when I'm working, coworkers learn quick that I'm only there to make money in our wonderful little world of modern day slavery where I have the choice of either dying or faking a smile and not fantasizing horrible, hateful things about the person at the other side of the counter, and that I'm about as interested in small talk as I am a complementary lobotomy, and I've managed to get by well enough by being eternally frugal.
I rarely ever have any idea what's going on in the world, if a celebrity forgot to breathe and died, if a hurricane killed everybody in Atlantis, if Atlantis is even still around, and I'm not even entirely sure whether that Oba-whatshisname is president yet, or if it's still that Clinton guy. For all I know, the Forbes 100 are funding a bomb that will destroy the Earth, and all the richest people in the world will escape in a 24 karat gold shuttle and live in a space colony.
Hours before the bomb hits, they'll be doing a live stream, with Donald Trump mooning the camera (which would be arguably worse than the whole "we're all going to die!" thing), Bill Gates laughing his ass off and pointing at the camera, and Oprah Winfrey recommending that everybody spends their last hour reading a book about how the space colony will be a far better place to live than the Earth ever was, and I think I'd be much happier not knowing a damn thing.
You know what, though. It's fucking great, and you'll never be happy until you learn to turn the TV off, stop caring about the news, and realize that you'll still be able to live. :)
+1. Not that you care of course. ;)
