Disposable Heros

"The worst thing that being an artist could do for you would be that it would make you slightly unhappy constantly" I love this quote reminds me of someone! J.D. Salinger. Lets talk about celebrities today. The condition of being famous can certainly turn into a condition for some if not most. What i mean is how many famous people become famous for something other than what got them there in the first place. The mystery of what it is to be famous is long gone with todays technology. Any affair, thing, or person that presents features or qualities so obscure as to arouse curiosity or speculation. GONE I TELL YOU! What it means to be famous today is changing. Technology has sunk it's claws in so deep and as a result, has exposed the greatest thing: Our idea of what fame is and our perception of what we thought fame should be. We hold these people up so high and most are just overexposed until the next new guy steps up. Disposable Heros is what I like to call them! True masters of their art don't have to talk. I Wish more celebrities would just shut the hell up and do something great for someone. Today! I will leave you with another favorite quote by J.D. Salinger : "I'm sick of just liking people. I wish to God I could meet somebody I could respect"
