Hello, it’s Rachael again. Laura is off in foreign climes being suitably fabulous so she’s handed over the reigns for LTV Speaks.
This week I wanted to speak out about the marriage of Brad and Angelina. Now those who know me well, know that I’m not one for celebrity gossip. I’m all for having a little peek in to the lives of the rich and famous but when it comes down to the private aspects of their lives – as the dragons say – I’m out.
I just have no desire to know what goes on behind closed doors when it comes to celebsville. Sure I like to know how they live – for example celebrity real estate images are guaranteed to peak my interest – but seeing famous people walk down the street or stumble out of restaurants…no thanks.
Which is why I am totally loving how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have handled their nuptials. Quietly, discreetly and most of all privately. We don’t need to know the ins and outs of their big day, we don’t need to know if they dined on chicken or shrimp. The only people who need to know all that business are the friends and family of the Jolie-Pitt’s. Am I right or am I right?
The fact that every detail of the lives of celebrities are documented online and in magazines, for me, ruins the whole concept of celebrity. There’s no mystery or glamour associated with film stars these days because we know everything about them, right down to what they ate for breakfast that morning. Not everyone can be an exceptional actress or superstar singer so why not keep a bit of allure involved in the industry.
We all need to start being more mindful of how we ingest celebrity gossip. It’s fine to lust after the latest fashions, to be interested in the work of different celebs etc but there are certain details that you just don’t need to know.
Have a fabulous week,
