How many of y'all look at MSN at least once a day?
Does anyone else notice, or further, get really, REALLY annoyed when useless articles about celebrities grab the top spots, ahead of the world-changing conflicts?
I've been meaning to write this for a while, but tonight an article about Justin Bieber's hair was placed, on my computer screen, in a higher importance position than stories coming out of Libya and Japan.
This is relatively trivial, since Libya and Japan are not making new headlines at the current moment, nor is JB's hair anything new anymore. However, there have been other times that I remember getting extremely upset because it seems like the priorities of the American people seem to be focused on the idiots in Hollywood/LA, not the ones who will impact our history.
You've all probably seen the youtube videos where a reporter/comedian asks people on the street questions like "Who is the VP?" and they will not know, but they can name the winner of every Oscar in 2008. I bet you more people know where Justin Bieber is at any given moment than where Libya is on a map. I will put £100 (I'm in London) on that bet.
How can people think that J's location is IMPORTANT? It's not revolutionizing anything, nor will it affect me today. However, the next bomb that goes off in Libya may turn the entire war upside-down and affect American history, just as 9/11 did. How can America act like a bunch of useless wannabees? We seem to place celebs at the center of our attention, giving them spotlights that they never deserve, instead of the global issues that could impact us for the next 20 years.
Wake up, people. I don't give a damn about Justin Bieber's hair today, and I never did, as a matter of fact. Neither should you.
