i'm so sick of hearing of celebrities and well-known people (there is a difference between the two) taking to twitter, as they call it, to tell someone off, instead of just saying it to them. it's like, because they are celebrities (or well-known) they only exist when their actions are witnessed by the public, and cant' do anything unless other people are watching (if a tree falls in a forest but nobody's there to hear it, does it make a sound? if a celebrity or well-known person does something in the privacy of their own home without tweeting a pic, does it actually happen?). i stumbled upon the ridiculousness of this while perusing an article about the whole showdown between donald trump and bill cosby. while i'd love to spend at least 5 minutes wondering why the latter even plays a role in this, i'll get straight to the point: donald trump, and i fully realize the positive implications i'm making in favor of the donald by saying this, to his merit, has always succeeded in doling out his grievances toward others right to their face--ok, with a little help from foxnews or the today show--but at least he backs up his bite with a little facetime. who can forget probably the most monumental public duel with rosie o'donnell? the one she apparently rekindled just last month, when she took to fucking twitter with some comment about his hair (that's only not old when oprah talks about it). but at least he voiced his opinion, no matter how assholic it might have been, directly to her, instead of hiding behind a bunch of @ and # signs. "he said/she said" sounds poetic; "he tweeted/she tweeted" just sounds fucking douche-y.
really. twitter has created a national epidemic of passive aggressive personality disorder, and there's nothing cute about that. as if today's celebrities and well-known people aren't megalomanic enough--now they can get their fixes for fame from the comfort of their own bedrooms or drug dens, one in the same, if you ask me, considering their craving for 'fame fixes' rivals that of the most addictive opiates, by sparking a fight with a fellow celebrity or well-known, over a poor dress choice or offensive hairstyle. because people live for twitter, and i mean liiiiiiiiive, my chica favorita kim kardashian is paid a paltry $10,000 per tweet, but that's all in a day's work right? $10,000 just so i can look at more pictures of her angled-downward-to-hide-her-huge-nose face sporting a pair of fucking skechers.
i'm glad i don't watch tv anymore.
