I really don't care..

and neither should you. I could never be a celebrity. What is it about celebrity that makes us forget they are people too? They have private lives, why does every minute detail have to be reported in the press, and furthermore, WHY do we care?
Here are some of the items in the news today, to which I can honestly say, I really don't care:

Jessica Alba is pregnant. The father is [gasp] her boyfriend of 3 years. So what. People get pregnant all the time and it doesn't make it into the paper - my pregnancy certainly didn't.

Scott Weiland of the bands Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver was charged for driving under the influence after a car accident he had in November. Wow. A rock star. Driving under the influence. I've never heard of such a thing. [eyeroll]

Britney Spears didn't make it to a court date for a deposition. She's still (supposedly) fighting for custody of her two children. Is anyone else as bored with this Britney/K-Fed saga as I am?

Someone paid $48,000 for a book autographed by John Lennon that had a lock of hair in it. Ok.. eww.. I can think of a whole lot better uses for $48,000.

Oprah Winfrey is backing Barack Obama for the democratic nomination. SO? Why should I care if Oprah likes him? Aren't I supposed to cast votes based on who *I* think the best candidates are? Aren't I supposed support the candidates whose views I agree most with and who I think will be best to lead our nation? Let me put all that aside, I'm a lemming that must follow whoever Oprah says I should. Pffft.

I've wasted enough of my time on this crap.. and now I've wasted yours too. :)
