I am talking about the miracle of birth and I have used quotation marks because…
I am honestly sick of how much air time pregnant celebrities get! Apart from the Kardashians, it is the second most annoying thing. Toddlers and Tiaras is a close third.
Beyonce just gave birth? Guess what? so did thousands of other girls.
A new child is born every 8 seconds into this world and some of those mothers are underaged! And you know what they get? Horrible sounding diseases!
Because while you are oh so busy building a million dollar nursery for your baby, some little girl across the world is waiting to be fed and is hoping for sanitation, medication and basic hygiene.
And NO those girls do not only reside in Africa. That’s a stereotype, get educated.
My problem is not overspending, I don’t care how much money celebrities want to spend but they aren’t doing something extraordinary that needs to be publicized. My grandmother gave birth to 13 kids, want to cover that story?
So dear media, stop showing bulls*** on TV and talk about things that matter. How about giving the same coverage to the case of the Missouri teen who killed a 9 year old just to find out what killing someone feels like?
Oh and dear celebrities, who apparently like to pose butt naked for magazinges while you are pregnant, IT IS NOT CUTE or sexy.
Do people like seeing butt naked pregnant ladies? I have seen some pretty mean comments on youtube videos uploaded by normal people. But of course these same commenters gush over pregnant celebrities *Rolls eyes*.
Do you think the Media should continue to devote a significant amount of air time to celebrity pregnancy stories?

No, I really don’t care about their babies and marriages and divorces and relationships and break-ups and beautiful dresses and ugly dresses and so on… And like you say, there is a lot more interesting stuff going in the world: policital, scientific, cultural events and so on…
But this is the way it is… Everybody is interested in Beyonce’s baby, and not in The Cosy Travels of The Viking and His Kitten 😉
Well I beg to differ, I would choose the Cozy Travels of the Viking and his kitten over this any day! 😉
Where is my ‘love’ button!
Wonderful, can’t say anything else just wonderful. Wish all these celebs would consider what message they send with their idiocy.
I am glad you like the post!
There is a picture of Katherine Zeta Jones, butt naked and smoking while pregnant. What a wonderful mommy 🙂
OK, it’s only 3:30 in the a.m. here, and you’ve given me my first “LOL” of the day with this post. Girl, you really said a mouthful! It’s disgusting what fills the headline news these days. I’m actually part of a group of ‘protestors’, if you will, that have petition to take the Kardashians off the air. (As well as the equally abhorent “Dance Moms”).
All we can do is make wise choices, tell our friends to stop supporting the insanity with their time and dollars, and – perhaps – offer other things worthwhile to read. Like this post. 🙂 Great job!
Haha really? there is a petition for that? I have never seen Dance Moms but the name itself makes me cringe!
These people go on these really pointless shows and then they expect people to not make fun of them?
I am glad you enjoyed the post! Why were you up at 3:30 am though? 🙂
Wonky sleeping patterns of “old age” LOL (and I believe that was also around the time of the full moon. I must be a “lunatic” because the full moon always wakes me up!)
NO definitely not! But apparently it sells, or else we wouldn’t be receiving it by the masses!
You are right! but they should limit this nonsense to some channels!
I didn’t know about the Kardashians until I heard about Kim’s divorce in the news…
Your grandmother gave birth to 13 children? Not all at once I would hope.
If the media doesn’t cover these inane topics what else would they cover? It obviously sells to those idiots it’s marketed towards, we’re in the minority.
Haha no she didn’t! I think that would have been a world record of some kind!
But yes 13 it was, 3 of whom didn’t survive because she was giving birth almost every year.
I think back in the day people apparently couldn’t grasp the concept that a woman is not merely a baby making machine!
I was thinking perhaps they could cover cultural, scientific or political news in greater detail. I know that there are channels devoted to that but somehow this celebrity gossip even manages to get on those channels!
My answer to your question is “no”, but that’s besides the point. Obviously, if nobody wanted to see it, they wouldn’t get airtime. So the real question to me is, why do people want to see it. I can’t be sure, but to me it always seemed like a beggar child pressing her nose against the window of a jewellery store. I think people want to imagine what it would be like to be anything but themselves or better yet anything but ordinary. Not as a political statement mind you, but rather because they worship “fame” or whatever they believe the notion of fame stands for. – Could it be because they are confusing “fame” with “love”? I’m not sure. However, if you solve that riddle and give them something else to suppliment, you won’t see another Kardashian in your life. I promise you! 🙂
If fame means being stupid then I rather not be famous 😉
I guess you are right! Off to my secret laboratory to think of a plan 😛
You’re right. They make such a big deal out of as if a celebrities child is like a gift from God.
And its ironic about that picture of pregnant Britney because she’s not even with the kid’s father anymore.
Leave Britney Alone! hahahahah
I had to choose this picture because all the others were R Rated! 😉
It’s sad how much people know about stars and their lives. I wonder how much they know about the people they live with, work with, or go to school with. The American infatuation with celebrities would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.
It is sad!
I guess it doesn’t help that Kim Kardashian won the people’s choice award for the most popular reality celebrity. That’s nothing to be proud of! She is notorious and that’s the only reason why she is popular.
Wow I didn’t hear about the teen in Missouri…that is awful!
Yes it is. I was horrified! I wonder what went on in the mind of the teenager to make her do this.
According to the news, she is a bright girl with good grades and doesn’t have any criminal record!
Or how about the sex-trafficking issue that is totally a global problem! You’re dead-on with this post. We waste a lot of time on issues that don’t matter at all, while people are starving.
Yes! I completely agree with you!
Those issues deserve far more attention as compared to all this but I guess people think that if they ignore the problems, the problems would just solve themselves and disappear.
I love the comments on this post (and the post). I got stuck on the money. What a waste.
haha I am glad you like it 🙂
I am sick to death of hearing about celebrities, especially the Kardashians. Who cares, for cripe sake? Celebrities and their “news” does nothing to enhance my existence.
Oh my God! Kardashians and Paris Hilton!
Seriously, I just don’t even know what to say. I am appalled by their stupidity and have yet to see anyone dumber than that!
Did you know that Paris Hilton was the reason why KIm got all the limelight? No surprises there right? LOL
Sadly, as long as we (the public) keep rewarding the media with purchases for this type of content, they will gladly keep providing it.
And that’s no “bulls***” =]
Wait are you saying you watch this stuff? 😉
or public in general? =)
you are right!
Hahahaha! No, I won’t watch this stuff until I’m a little old retired ladyman.
But, I am a member of the public, and seeing as I’m not doing that much to stop the spread of the disease, I’m just about as guilty as those who do feed the frenzy.
Of course, getting stuck in the slowest check out line at the grocery store makes me peruse the rags and mags on display. I found myself wondering “Who are these people, and why should I be interested in them? If they, like your Grandma birthed 13 babies and kept them fed without a celebrity’s salary, nannies, and maids, then sure…they’re stars and deserve an advice column. I’m with t. If people would STOP buying this content, it would fade away. Thanks for bringing it up.Good post.
Thank you for dropping by my blog!
As for the “I am in a check out line, let’s read the tabloids” syndrome… I am guilty of it too 😛
I am going to go right over and read your blog!:)
Ugh, them Hollywood preggers. They get in my hair a lot. And about the Mo. teen? That’s so sick.
I hope that they can deal with the teen properly though.
That girl is very young! I don’t know what got into her head! 😦
You just read my mind! I’m so tired of all of this making the headlines. How about for once people magazine do a spread on a charity organization like CARE? Now that would be something I would want to read 🙂
I would love that too! Lets hope that someday that will happen:)
Yeah I don’t bother following most of that celebrity news stuff either, and I don’t think I’m missing out on much. 🙂 There are a lot more important things to be informed about for sure.
I would hope all women would have the option of celebrating pregnancies they *choose*. I concur we ignore those in need or distress, and add my concern over this sudden Republican advocacy for rolling back access to birth control and the right of choice. Further, our illustrious right fails to support universal health care, widely available and cheap contraception, and comprehensive sex ed.
So much we could do, so many prefer gun rights to reproductive and health rights.
What? They are going to limit access to birth control? Are they crazy?
Do you think the Media should continue to devote a significant amount of air time to celebrity pregnancy stories?
The sad but harsh truth is that in the boardroom, this decision must be a yes most of the time for the media companies, given the frequency with which such stories are covered on the mainpage of major magazines. But the other side of the coin reveals that these companies must be raking in the moolah by doing so which means consumers must be buying these magazines. While we can all say now that media should not publicize events like these, most of us are guilty of placing these magazines into our shopping cart. So I think the question should be:
Do you think we should give attention to pregnancy stories and how can we show media that this stories dont sell?
Ans: By not purchasing these magazines. Sooner or later, u would find stories like these missing from the public limelight..
Completely agreed! Now let’s work on stopping people 😛
No, I do not. And this coming from someone with ten children. I am not at all interested in the glamorization of pregnancy in media which openly targets girls between the ages of 12 and 18. Completely the wrong message to be sending. If they do get pregnant like their (questionable) role models, they could get a television spot out of the deal.
Disgusting and shameful. I know why I do not even read these magazines online (They profit from that, too.).
You are so right! What is with all this teen mom drama? I don’t get it! If you do watch the MTV teen moms show, those girls hardly know how to be good mums because they are kids themselves!!
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it 🙂
wow 10 children! wow! that is really something! I have followed your blog:)
Good luck with that. You may find what my children have taught me is mostly snark and a thinly veiled front paw attack 😉 Glad to have you on board. Be sure to leave a link to your blog in the Green Room. There are plenty who need to find their way here.
hear, hear. and i don’t like what she’s doing to that lollipop very much either!
hahah now that you’ve mentioned it, what is she doing? :s
Word. Celebrities (and semi-celebrities) become even more famous for ridiculous things. Kevin Federline’s fame comes from being a serial impregnator.
hhhahah this made me laugh really hard! Thank you for visiting my blog! 🙂
I agree! I get weary of the celebrity world. I’m not jealous, I just get tired of the pettiness, and hearing stuff about these people all the time. I don’t watch tv, or read celebrity magazines. And yet information about the doings of celebreties is so pervasive, you can’t escape. I agree that this trivializes the realities that many people face. The only celebrity doings I appreciate are the stories of those few who use their fame to do something good for those who need help.
Yup! More of them should really be using their fame to do something worthwhile! Everyone gets pregnant GEEZ!
You are so on target. Call me old-fashioned but I think they should get married BEFORE they have the baby. Stars like Jessica Simpson want to wait until after the baby is born before they tie the knot. That sets a real bad example for those idol-worshipers who want to follow suit.
I have a story after their pregnancy, their child gets banged by a random hobo on the street and then while they’re pregnant, they pose for Playboy magazine. Same shitty story. I’m sick of it. And isn’t anyone else grossed out by the fact that their tummy’s our on the front covers of magazine? Sheesh. I could just imagine right after the photo shoot, they’d start contracting and give birth on the set… Ewww.
I know right? I did something embarrassing at the drugstore the other day though. There was a tabloid talking about how Katniss from The Hunger Games, the actress that is, may be dating Liam Hemsworth or the Peeta guy and I went, “pssssh obviously it’s the Peeta guy because Liam Hemsworth is dating Miley Cyrus DUH!” I felt like kicking myself. Why do I know this? 😐
