Celebrities in the News

Michael Jackson: I see Michael Jackson is a free bird, now. It remains to be seen whether children are in fact safe from him. If I were his mother, I'd take him aside, sit him down, and tell him, "Son, you just dodged a very big bullet today. You had better shape up, act normal, and fly right. Get some counseling, if you know what's good for you. And make sure there's not a third time that you're brought up on charges like these, because it'll be pretty hard to believe that you're innocent, the more often this happens."

To my mind, it is not at all to his credit that he is celebrating with his fans at Neverland right now. I would be a lot more circumspect and respectful of the accusation, even if he was found not guilty.

Tom Cruise: I was interested to see that the author of an article in the Entertainment section of the Houston Chronicle is very Not Impressed with the recent antics of Mr. Cruise. Usually, the Chronicle treats celebrity things like the fluff they are, but this writer was extremely disapproving and thinks Cruise is damaging his own career by behaving as he is--flaunting his relationship with Katie Holmes, being a publicity hound, etc. I have to admit, I wonder what's going on with him. You don't see John Travolta doing some of the stuff Cruise is doing. Interesting also is that Katie Holmes, like Cruise's previous wife Nicole Kidman, is Catholic--or was before she got sucked into Scientology.

I don't get the appeal of Scientology, myself. I read Dianetics and wasn't impressed. Besides, knowing that this so-called 'religion' was crafted by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, who bet he could do it while at a science fiction convention, tells me there's no deep spirituality in it--though one could validly argue that depth of spirituality in a religion is dependent on how much faith the believer invests.

Me, I'll take Catholicism and Wicca. I trust them more. I feel more reverence for them and in them.

Current Mood: thoughtfulthoughtful

Re: Michael Jackson--I agree wholeheartedly. He needs to spend at least three years in therapy, and he should not be allowed near a child alone again. Something is dreadfully wrong with him.

Re: Tom Cruise--you know the affection I (once) had for him has gone down the tubes since Katie Holmes. His tactics scream of a closet control freak, and his remarks about Brooke Shields's PPD were ignorant and insensitive. I'd like to see him deal with his emotions circling a black hole and feeling like putting the baby in the microwave for 10 minutes would be a great idea. :( Wonder how many vitamins he'd have to take for THAT to go away. Dimwit.

As for Scientology, Hubbard claimed all you had to do to get rich in America was invent a new religion. Sadly for America, he was right. I'll take my heretical Christianity, Shekinah/Sophia and all.


Kris--*Nods* I'm in definite agreement about something being terribly wrong with Michael. I got to see a sample of his handwriting once, which was in a book on handwriting analysis. It was a train wreck. This was at least a decade or more ago. I couldn't believe a successful adult man could/would write like that.

As for Tom Cruise--I think the Scientology weirdoes have gotten to him--either that, or there's something more deeply wrong. And yes, this whirlwind thing with Katie Holmes does shout 'control freak.' It's like he's trying to bowl her over. Weird. I wonder if this is why Nicole left him?

*feels soooo shallow for talking about celebrities, but oh well!* (g)


Heh. :D The whole world is doing it; why not?

Hmm . . . wonder if I'll find that handwriting analysis on Google . . .
