I've been trying to decide whether Kim Kardashian and Kanye West dating/screwing/having dinner in the same restaurant is actually news, (well I'm never getting those 30 seconds back am I?) Nope, it isn't and I don't give a stuff.
Is anyone else mightily sick of the shallowness of the world at the moment, I know I am. Let's be honest here, we aren't exactly swimming in rainbows and pissing glitter at the moment, Everywhere you look there is blood being spilled, people losing their homes and hunger across the world. (Christ I'm depressing myself here)
And yet we are being drip-fed bloody Kardashians, pictures of sproglets of the pairing of Z-list celebs and Twitter spats of the rich and famous.
I've seen puddles with more depth than some of the articles I have read lately.
Do I really need to ponder on how big the arse (and head) will be on the sprogladite of a Kardashian/West merger? I think not? (although you know they will both be huge right)
Do I want to know which member of Made In Chelsea is the next big brand ambassador? Probably not
Do I even CARE about One Direction breaking America? Why no, No I don't.
So what is it with all the shallowness lately when the world is going to hell in a handbasket?
We can't care about the world that little can we?
Or is it deeper than that? Are we using trash TV, magazines and Z-list celebrities to distract us from the world and all its problems?
Sticking our head in the veritable sandpit of cheap Zelebrities to avoid dealing with what is happening here.
It's much easier to deal with the celebrities losing their shit during twitter spats than people losing their homes and lives.
Looking at people wearing pretty dresses is easier than looking down at your own clothes that you can't afford to replace.
and reading about famous people and their weight loss certainly distracts from the possibility of the loss of the NHS doesn't it.
It isn't right, but part of me does understand it. If the little things can help ease peoples worries, if only for a minute, why should anyone, (including me) sneer?
But in between these trashy articles, lets take the time to think about what's going on in our world and how we can change it. (even if it is only by ignoring One Direction until they finally get the message-Prepares for more death threats)
How do YOU make a difference?
Let me know
