When stars pretend to care!

There are very few things that annoy me in life, and right at the top of the small list are celebrities! I hate them. Not that I’m jealous of them or anything, its just that sometimes, they do things that makes me want to throw up in disgust. On screen, I like them; I like their acting and I like the men and women they portray, but off screen, they are just irritating, piss-off people with a bottomless wallet and a bigger ego.

Ok, I can accept it when Britney Spears walks down the road naked and the paparazzi drool on their cameras. I can also accept it (grudgingly) when Tom Cruise talks about Scientology and tries to convince us that we are aliens. But what I can’t really understand is when Brad Pitt tattoos a map of New Orleans on his lower back as a tribute to all the victims of hurricane Katrina! šŸ˜€

How is this a tribute to anyone except the poor woman with whom he sleeps every night? Or is he planning to do a Salman Khan and walk around bare chested for the rest of his life? But for god’s sake, a tattoo!!! Now, I’ve seen and heard everything! This is just disgustingly insane!

Celebrities are people who are supposed to smile for the cameras and pretend to act. But all they seem to do is smile and pretend to care. Aamir Khan pretended to care for the “violence affected brothers and sisters” and decided to carry the Olympic torch! I really want to meet his PR agent and shake his hand! šŸ˜€

I guess we live in a world where the quirkiest actions are greeted with the most response. I am old school, and I am still trying to grasp the pace at which the world is becoming dumb. šŸ˜€

  1. hmm….ya these celebs are over covered by media…and the property is this i guess…the lesser the celeb is covered the more covered they get by the media….and i have taken the unofficial tag *sigh* ….

  2. Yep! The world has been dummed down by the media and by it own laziness. It is a sad situation.
    We all need help and to stop and to listen. God please forgive us and help us all. Indeed it seems the world has gone mad.

  3. Celebrities want to be in news thats all!!! Thats why we have likes of Shahrukh clones doin Cola ads…knowing very well it is bad for health…at the same time we have one Pullela Gopichand who declines any kind of media limelight by saying no to cola endorsement….Man I once had such kinda incident with Aftab Shivdasani on our flight to Mumbai….Jerkoooo sickoooo…
    I am personally against irresponsible actors like SRK!! SRK is body shopping himself! I pity on him because he lost his self respect years back.

  4. haha, yeah, how does a tattoo help the victims of hurricane katrina? tribute to them? more like something to stroke your ego with when people initially think oh you have a physical tribute for them but when they get back home they’d wonder, what the hell is it useful for??

  5. WTF!!!!! He needs some medical help I guess. Is it a publicity gimmick for some movie or has Jolie told him that she gets a high when she touch a map?? šŸ˜€

  6. at the risk of sounding highly cliche : there is no publicity such as bad publicity,publicity in itself is great,no matter how it comes šŸ™‚ why go phoren,look at our desi ones only,rakhi sawant n mika being on top of the list,they were totally unknown ,n after the kiss ka kissa,hot property ! lol ! i think they cannot stand not being in the limelight,they get used to it šŸ™‚

    and regarding brad pitt,phew,i think he has got this fad from wife angie who thinks just by adopting a dozen kids from all over the world and now getting her hubby tattooed (!) she can change the world ??! there r so many controversies bout her adoption,too repetitive to talk bout em now šŸ™‚

  7. If Brad Pitt wants to roam around without a shirt for the rest of his life, with one or more tattoos, I am with the club of women – and I am sure, some men – who will welcome the move. Bring it on, Brad! šŸ™‚

    I will even send him money to get more tattoos of the maps of the various countries they are buying, oops, adopting their United Nations of Children from.

  8. @Vishesh
    Yay!! Do the tag soon! šŸ˜€

    I think its a bit too late for forgiveness! šŸ˜€
    all we can do is pray and hope! heh heh heh!

    I agree machi..!! I have started hating SRK too.. Every ad he’s there! I think its about time he takes break! šŸ˜€

    It’s all just a PR gimmick thats all! He’s looking for more reasons to get into the news!! Bah!

    Jolie is another mad woman! Why are these ppl even IN the news?? Just because they did a few movies and have a few million, does it mean that we need to know what color underwear they’re wearing!?? šŸ˜€

  9. @Meghana
    Yeah! She’s a big time Beeeep!! šŸ˜€
    Changing the world! Huh! Fat chance! They’ll end up ruining it!

    I have no comment! I am not one of those guys you’ve mentioned.. I think he needs a dose of reality and common sense! šŸ˜€

  10. Nikhil, Why don’t you try the same? You are not less than any celebrity.
    Seriously, he is just trying to and (or show that he is) doing something. But he forgot that god made him celebrity instead of giving some common-sense. šŸ˜€

  11. Brad Pitt.

    Yuck *Pukes*

    Oldie trying to take over the world by adopting kids from every damn place. WTF ?! Bloody take care of your kids first Brad, I hate you ! You Stupid Jackass who thinks you can beat Depp !


  12. tattoo as a tribute to all the victims of hurricane Katrina huh!!

    See.. This is what makes them celebrities.. normal people just can not do such jigs!
    This is what keeps them in the limelight.. if they don’t do this, they are no longer in the news.. Out of sight, out of mind… and out of business..
    May be Paris Hilton will pierce her clit to stop global warming!
