I must admit to be a little shocked over how much attention some celebrities get. Anna Nicole Smith never made a blockbuster movie or sold a million CDs yet, even before her death the press enjoyed chasing her down the road. (probably to watch her chest bounce) Now that she has passed away, the press still won't leave her alone! While she was alive the girl was defined by her body, now that she is dead, it's her body that still won't stay out of the news! (i think the media need to get some therapy!)
Britney Spears who hasn't released an album in quite some time is on the news every night. Her strange antics seems to be screaming for press coverage all the while she's telling people "DON'T TOUCH ME!".
Finally we have Paris Hilton who...I'm not actually sure why she became famous...maybe daddy tipped off the press that his baby girl wanted to become internationally stalked. Anyway...so we've got princess Paris who, despite her seemingly stupid nature, is a business shark.
So these people who do nothing except flaunt their bodies (in Anna's case it was only while living) can get constant press coverage while celebrities who are actually making movies and television seem to be left alone...i really hope this is a reflection on the media and not our culture.
