The TMZ Theocracy: "Why?... 'Cuz I've Got Nice Titties!"

Updated on September 17, 2009

My guilty pleasure is that I have been watching waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much TMZ lately. I am starting to measure the value of my days by whether or not Harvey Levin ("I'm A Laaaaaawyah!") is "running the meeting" or if Dreadlocks Dude or Snotty Girl is standing in for him and his omni-present plastic sippee drink cup.

Yes, I fully recognize that TMZ is trash. Of course it is. But then again, I'm finding it an irresistible pleasure in watching Steven Seagal try to ignore Queen On The Scene on a Beverly Hills street, Hayden Panettiere strolling down a hill wearing pink shorts so small they would crimp on Barbie, Shaq trying to get out of paying seventeen bucks for valet parking; or P. Diddy (whatever his name is this week) engage in impromptu F-bomb contests with some rent-a-cop.

Hey, you gotta gimme my due. I've lived a long and crazy life. A half hour a day of revelling in trash is not necessarily what defines me in this life. It's just a way to have a few laughs and chillax.

The problem that TMZ has slapped me in the face with is that due to its overwhelming ratings, it has become a way to peek at the reality of the every day life of the "stars" that so many millions of impressionable people around the world adulate and to gain a perspective on who these people really are.

In the last fifty years or so a phenomenon has occurred which has no legitimate historical precedent: Celebrity. Never before have so many people with absolutely nothing of interest to say been looked up to by so many people to such a degree.

This point was driven home when Megan Fox was being interviewed by a reporter in Toronto a couple of nights ago. She began to answer a question when her publicist jumped in with a "No Comment." Megan went on to say that it's a good thing that she pays people to think for her.

Yeah. That sums it up. A lot of these "stars" need to pay others to think for them... since it's quite obvious they can't do it themselves.

Why is anyone asking Megan Fox anything at all? Why is her opinion important? Why is she so looked up to by so many? "Why?... 'Cuz I've Got Nice Titties!"

Therefore it begs the question: Why are these "celebs" so pointless?

We have to look at what the common background to many of these "superstars" is. They were mostly involved in show biz at an early age and instead of hitting the books in high school and college, they hit the scripts. Young actors have no time for history, geography, and social studies. They are always on the way to the next audition, or quit school early to move to L.A. and seek the limelight. The result is incredibly rich, incredibly famous, incredibly uneducated individuals who have overwhelming impact on millions of people. It can certainly be argued that George Clooney has at least equivalent sway over populations as Barack Obama!

However, none of these "celebs" were elected to the office of "stardom." Each of them was just one of the countless thousands of fame-seekers wandering along Melrose Avenue hoping that they hit the jackpot so that they could quit waiting on tables or parking cars and move into a mansion in Bel Air.
