Please forgive me for this vent, but these three celebrities have tickled at my nerves for the last few days.
- Now Akon silly rapper got himself involved in a stupid ‘sex’ dance in a Trinidad club with a minor (14yrs) lax club rules and such. If you see the 14 year old you can understand the mistake, but what has gotten me all peeved is the actual dance. I got a glimpse of it on E! TV and I was appalled by the violence and lewdness of it. He literally flung the girl around like dish rag or rag doll. Is that entertainment? Was that his idea of performing? Oh I hope not– it was awful! my cousin(21) compared it to a molestation and you know I could not disagree!
- There is much talk recently about the ‘kiss’ that Richard Gere planted on the Indian female celebrity (sorry i don’t remember her name) in India. I remember think that the silly man really should have done his research on the culture before appearing, because coming from a land which is 40% Indian in population it is known that Hindus are very passionate about their woman being chaste and prudish (and yes I am simplifiying a bit). And then, again on E!, I saw the kiss and I am shocked, Richard Gere in front of everyone was so ‘excited’ by the cause they was speaking on was fawning all over the girl. He kissed her hand and then tipped the visibly uncomfortable woman and planted the sloppiest kiss I ever did see on her cheek. What was he thinking?!! It was so inappropriate and ridiculous… he seemed to be smitten by her albeit she is really good-looking, but it looked silly and now the poor girl is possibly facing a jail sentence because of it.
- And now John Travolta and scientology… there is a rumour going around that his son is autistic and because of scientology they are not recognising that he has it. Oh my goodness I can’t even begin to get into this one. I just hope that even though they are not recognising the label they are doing more than just wishing the disorder away, because that sorry to say it does not cut it. My initial reaction was alot more peeved than I am feeling now. But seeing it is only a rumour and I don’t think it is fair that anyone should be forced to be the poster person for a cause, but I do hope that the Travolta’s are at least doing all that they can to ensure that he can reach to some level of neurotypicalness. If, however, they are not putting their money to good use then they should at least pass on some to my son and me. We would put it to good use ( Here is one view on it)
By the by Richard Gere and John Travolta are two of my favourite male actors <<SIGH>> well I guess it is human to err!
