Um, wut? Like it's any of my business? Like anyone knows the truth about what went down except the people involved? Like I CARE?

Is dumb question.

To take this to a more personal level, if it was a *friend* of mine, I would care. If people have made promises they don't intend to keep, they shouldn't be in that relationship with those particular mutual agreements. I've made promises I later realized I couldn't keep, and (eventually) extracted myself from the relationship. Goodness knows I'm not perfect - I understand that people make mistakes. But you have to be honest with yourself before you can be honest with anyone else. Sometimes that is surprisingly difficult.

We grow, we change, we try, we fail, we try again. I imagine "celebrities" are just like us in that respect - except we don't have 50 gazillion people gleefully studying our every misfortune under a media microscope.

Salacious gossip is ugly, no matter where it comes from or who it's aimed at.

What really gripes me is that major media outlets continue to report on those stories as though they were actually news. The people who watch that stuff rabidly (it's so ubiquitous that you can't escape watching/hearing it a little) really ought to think about how they'd feel if even their friends knew some of the gory details of their nasty breakups and such.

Um...yeah. That's right up there with their question "Which vampires would you recruit to beat the Cullens in a baseball game." Epic fail, LJ.

Although that's not as bad as the teenage girls that stalked a member of a fairly famous band to his house, waited outside, and then basically ambushed him when he was walking in with his girlfriend. And then made him take pictures with them.
