Brad Pitt checked himself into a hospital Monday Night. He apparently complained of flu-like symptoms. He was in Ethiopia last week where Angelina Jolie picked up her new adopted child.
Ok, by this point, if you’re not thinking this article is stupid, why the hell not?!?!?! I’m fascinated why the major news outlets feel the need to put this fact onto their front pages. What possible impact does Brad Pitt having the flu have on my life? Or anyone elses?
Knowing little tidbits of someone’s life will not in reality “connect” the average person to a celebrity, but people really seem to think so. Is it because peoples lives are so boring they try to live vicariously through the celebrities? Do we hear (on the front page) when Bush has the flu, or a cold, or when any other political figure does? How about scientists? No. But Brad Pitt, yes. He is that important.
