One set of words that drives me up a wall and reveals in what a sad world we live is “Realty TV Star”.
The word “star” means something different in England. It seems to be applied to anyone that plays a role in a film. I keep noticing headlines, captions, or introductions about someone who is a “star” in, for example, a latest James Bond film. I have never heard of the person and do not recognize the face. I’m certain that I can find the name buried in the titles at the end, but would still not label them a “star”.
Of course, the title has lost much value in the United States from its ring of glamor in the past. I cannot become excited about--or even interested in--anyone labeled a “Realty Star”. Not all stars shine...despite their own wishes or efforts of the PR staff.
I noticed a headline about some “famous” person her their hands into wet cement on some sidewalk in Greater Los Angeles.
First of all, I cannot understand what part of the ego drives someone to do this. Money cannot play a role, because visitors can walk the streets without paying.
Second, I can understand even less why anyone would travel to said street, walk the unattractive sidewalk, and look at handprints of people who’s names might or might not be familiar. I can imagine no greater waste of time.
This is one more example of human inanity...
_ Have you noticed? The gutter press (an internet news sites) likes nothing better than a celebrity death. (Of course you did not, because you do not waste time on such trash.) You can take my word, because I scan front pages for you and form my learned opinions. A death alleviates the need to make up stuff about celebrities, real or hopeful ones.
