This week’s Ten on Tuesday topic, “10 Least Favorite Celebrities,” really isn’t doing much for me. I try to stay away from the entertainment-gossip-oriented websites and TV shows (although having said that, TMZ on TV can be hilarious, mostly because of the snarky voiceovers), which helps limit my exposure to so-called celebrities who may have been on a reality-TV show once or twice, but are now mostly famous for being on gossip websites and in tabloids. That means I’m having a hard time thinking of ten celebrities that I’m sick of – that aren’t the same ones that everyone else is sick of too. Also, it bothers me that, for the most part, the celebrities that come to mind are women, but as long as the media keeps spotlighting their foibles more than men’s, this is what we have to work with.
On first thought, a few names came to mind:
and then I stalled. Then I decided it wasn’t worth trying to come up with any more.
Instead, I’m going to go the “Just pick one already” route, via Meg Fowler (who calls it “Choose Ye.”) I’m not sure it’s easier, but it’s a little more positive. The rules are simple, per Meg: “No ‘it depends’ or ‘both!’ or ‘neither’… you must choose!” My choice in each pair is underlined – and to be honest, some of them are just completely random.
Who do you choose? Tell us in the comments, or post them on your own blog!
