You know what man... I'm finally going to address a topic that has had me pissed off since I've been about 13. This one may take a while.
For those of you who know your favorite celebrity's every move, YOU ARE A FUCKING LOSER!
Ok, first allow me to explain where all of this is coming from: As you may or may not know Tiger Woods addressed the press and publically apologize for his marital infidelity. Me personally I didn't see it, I didn't care to see it, and I don't care, Period! You see I'm not a fan of Tiger Woods, with all due respect to him, but golf is not and nor will it ever be my cup of tea. Let me tell you who I am a fan of: I loved Michael Jackson, til this day Jay-Z is my favorite rapper, I don't care way too much for Kelis but I am a fan of her music and Nas is my dude. HOWEVER: by "Fan" I don't mean stalker, un official self proclaimed agent, I don't mean Public Relations person. So for people to know a celebrity's every move and seemingly be effected by them pisses me the eff off! I.E. - may he rest in peace, but even while he was alive I never believed that Michael was guilty of all the things he was being accused of. You can sit there read this and think to yourself "Yea Right, sure you didn't" but I am being sincere. Another example: when rumors were going around that My favorite Rapper Jay-Z was dating, seen or married to Beyonce again, I guess I was Happy for the man, but I DIDN'T CARE! And then this whole Nas and Kelis thing, with him getting her tattooed on his arm, her hitting him with a ridiculous child support case, etc. etc. I know of these issues but again, I DON'T CARE! Why? I'll tell you why.
For starters, none of these muh fuckahs pay my bills, put food on my table, clothes on my back or money in my pocket. I won't ride in the back a Maybach like Hov by simply knowing he has one! Aside from that fact, these people are just that: "People" and all you dumb followin sons of bitches seem to forget that. Yes, they are entertainers, but that's just it, entertainers, they are here to entertain us, make our day go by smoother through their music, or make our evening that much more exciting by watching them play their sport. But what these "Entertainers"/(Regular People otherwise) do on their own personal time, while they are not in the studio recording your favorite song, or while they are not on the field or court playing the sport that you love them for, or in front of the camera filming the movie you watch endlessly is THEIR BUSINESS, not yours. And the fact that people forget this bothers me. You see, if 'Rapper #5', bought 'Singer #9' a X-amount of Million dollar ring, you shouldn't care. If 'Movie Star #3' hooked up with 'Athlete #4' you shouldn't care. Why would you wanna care? How does that effect you in anyway? Is 'Movie Star #3' your best friend? Do you guys hang out, and have sleep overs and reminisce about the days you met in the lunch room? No? Well shit, you could have fooled me. Is your life THAT boring that you feel the need to know these people's every move? I don't understand it, someone please help me understand the idea behind it all. For you to care that Lil Wayne was seen taking a piss in the stall of McDonald's is just plain ridiculous. Its unfair to make Tiger have a press conference and publically apologize to anyone when the only person he owes an apology to is the person who was personally effected; his wife.
The whole Chris Brown and Rihanna thing, if you ask me, we're only hearing one side of the story, (like I've been saying) I don't care, but that young man looks like he wouldn't harm a fly if it landed on his face, not saying he's an angel, but whatever, I believe his attack was provoked, so for Rihanna to rise from the situation like a phoenix from the ashes is all fine and dandy but now poor Chris will never reach the level in his career that he would've had this situation not taken place. My question is: why do you care so much? But I digress.
Lord knows this is why I don't want fame, because I don't feel I owe anyone anything. If I am a rapper than my one and only job is to keep bangin out hit after hit and putting it on the radio for you to enjoy and bop your head to while you drive to and from work. If I am an athlete than the only thing I owe you is a show anytime you buy a ticket to my game or turn on your TV to watch me. Who I was seen with at the hottest restaurant in town, with 'Ms. Celebrity X', or the new Ferrari I just bought, or how much I paid for my house is (again) NONE OF YOUR COT DAMN BUSINESS. So please folks, how about you stop caring about these things so much, so that they can walk half a city block without being harassed by Papparrazzi, stop caring so that private pictures of them and their children don't end up on the covers of tabloids, stop caring so that they can enjoy their lives the same way you enjoy yours uninterrupted by the bullshit they have to deal with on a day to day basis. Stop caring about their new Tattoo, stop caring about what they were seen wearing at the Basketball game, let these human beings live their lives. Its ok to be a fan, but there's a difference between being a fan, and being obsessed, figure out which one you are and try to act accordingly.
Stay Up, Stay Tuned, and Stay out of my Business, please and Thank You!
