Di, host of Pensivity101, is once again standing in for Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind, for today’s Truthful Tuesday prompt. This week Di is asking about celebrities. She wants to know…
How do you feel about ‘celebrities’ getting their fizogs in the press all the time, despite having said they want privacy then still crave for attention, can’t seem to make the headlines without getting their kit off, or basically aren’t happy unless they are slagging someone off.
First, I needed to break out my British English to American English translation dictionary to understand what Di meant by:
- Getting their fizogs
- Getting their kit off
- Slagging someone off
So, if I can translate Di’s question to something I understand, here’s what I think she’s actually asking…
How do you feel about ‘celebrities’ getting their faces in the press all the time, despite having said they want privacy then still crave for attention, can’t seem to make the headlines without taking off their clothes, or basically aren’t happy unless they are harshly criticizing someone.
Personally, I don’t closely follow any “celebrities” in the press, although I imagine that, as celebrities, they would want to keep their names and faces in the limelight. After all, isn’t being highly visible the essence of celebrity?
That said, I don’t know or care about any of them disrobing for headlines, and I am not aware of, nor do I care about, who they may be dissing or denigrating at any point in time.
So, bottom line, I don’t feel much about celebrities or what celebrities do one way or the other. If they are actors or musicians or singers or authors or whatever kind of celebrities they may be, the only thing I care about is the quality of their work.
Now, if you ask me about politicians…. Well, on second thought, don’t ask me about politicians.
