Writer's Block: Star struck
Do you think celebrities deserve as much recognition, attention, and money as we, as a society, give them? What do you think it says about our cultural values?

Absolutely NOT! Celebrities are way overrated! My big pet peeve right now is Lindsay Lohan! She was finally put in jail(which is great!), but now they are thinking about shortening her 90 day sentence to 2 weeks! That girl is a druggie and never follows her parole, so why should her sentence be cut short just because she's famous? I hope they keep her in there as long as they can, so she can get her shit together! 

Anyways, back to the original topic...Celebrities are looked up to by children and other people in our society. And anytime that someone is popular(whether it be on TV or at school) people are going to pay attention to them and give them attention. So, I can understand why they receive so much attention and recognition. I also understand why they receive so much money, however I don't agree that they should be getting paid what they do. 

I feel like society thinks way too highly of celebrities. Really, they are just regular people like us who just hit it big and got lucky. They make more in a year than the average person makes in a lifetime, and everyone is okay with it. I wish these things would change, but they never will. There will always be celebrities and they will always receive special treatment. That's just the way it is...
