Celebrities – I either value their work, as actors, writers or artists…or I don’t.
Either way I do not need to know what they ate for breakfast or who they are currently shagging.
Knowing that stuff devalues their work to me, I don’t want to see behind the curtain or know how the sausage is made, but I can understand how others would like the extra details about the creators of the subjects they enjoy. To me it is simply more opportunity to discover that those whose work I admire are – more and more frequently – arseholes of the highest order.
I think this rant owes it’s existence to my growing disappointment with the creative side of humanity, whose foibles are no longer adorable and eccentric, but instead are just as shallow as the rest.
