Leave Sandra Bullock alone. Is it irresponsible of the people to reinforce the gossip industry and invade celebrity lives?

If you’ve walked through a checkout line in the last few weeks, you’ll see pictures of a distraught Sandra Bullock splattered on the front pages of fluff gossip magazines. The big news in America: her husband Jesse James has been cheating. (Yes, this is the news we should be reading.)

I’m sure that after discovering that her husband of five years has been unfaithful, her utmost desire is to be photographed liberally and smeared across pages of substance-less magazine covers. Isn’t that what you want after a break-up or negative, dramatic life event?

Well, the truth is, it’s our fault that she has to put up with that kind of harassment.

Celebrities are forced into this dark job of being 24/7 entertainers. When people agree to entertain us with their acting or musical or artistic talent, shouldn’t that be good enough for the public?

I personally feel way to sleazy and rude reading information about famous people’s tough times and personal lives. But then again, I keep my gossiping to a minimum. And these magazines are nothing but glorified “Mean Girls” hiding behind glossy pages and colorful pictures.

My question is to those gossip ‘zine readers: shouldn’t celebrities have some privacy? Why do you read that smut? When did gossip become a major American industry?

Enlighten me if I’m off-base, but I think that if garbage news and humiliation like this fuels a person, his or her priorities are violently askew. Perhaps there are some values that need to be reevaluated. There are better things in the world to do than read about Sandra Bullock’s personal crisis.

Let’s leave this lady be. Go watch one of her movies or something instead.

  1. My friends and I have agreed that Sandra’s soon-to-be-ex is a moron. She’s gorgeous and nice and he’s messing around?
