This week I've seen footage from two big events: the Kentucky Derby and the White House Correspondents' Dinner. What do they have in common? Celebrities! I am so sick and tired of celebrities showing up everywhere.
The Kentucky Derby is a tradition about horse racing. Now they have a "red carpet" for all the celebrities. They take up all the room, spend all the money, and get all the attention.
The White House Correspondents' Dinner. What is the purpose of it anyway? It's become another "red carpet" event. Celebrities showing off again. What on Earth do the likes of Kim Kardashian and Pamela Anderson have to do with the White House? Why do they belong there? Why don't they have a lottery and get some "everyday" people in there?
Why do celebrities get to gobble up all the tickets to all the important events? The rest of us are delegated to the role of observers. Everywhere you look... in the front row at sporting events, at the premieres of everything, at all events that a lot of people would love to attend. Celebrities on the best beaches, in the best restaurants, spending their money on extravagant houses and clothing and jewelry while families struggle to feed their children. I wish they would all just fade into obscurity.
