|Waiting to Inhale...some crack...|
Since Whitney died hours before the Grammys, they had to scramble to get her into the tribute for their awards show. And that brings me to the meat of this story. Why the fuck are they making tributes to people who are such epic fucking failures? Amy Winehouse, another wasted junkie that keeled over last year, that's another one that's getting tributes. Why? These people have all this talent, all this fame and what have you, and they just waste it, abuse it, flush it down the fucking toilet...and those in the industry pay tribute to them, like the fact that they turned out to be horrible addicts is washed away because they died and at one point before that, they made some music and people sang along with it.
|What a fucking waste.|
I also don't think they deserve to be celebrated, like "oh, this is such a tragedy, but they had some hits, so that more than makes up for the garbage they made of themselves." Make these washed up, has-been celebs a cautionary tale, make an example of them, don't fucking act like it was a sudden and unexpected loss that came out of nowhere. These people died because no one told them no, no one fucking scared their asses straight, no one gave a shit enough about them to tough love their asses and stop feeding them their addiction, 'cause everyone wants their payday and if the star isn't happy and getting what they want to do what they do, no one's getting paid.
It won't be long 'til another has been celeb dies of, and you'll see how they scramble to pay them tribute, and while someone may write a little blip of story about the dangers of drug use, it will get lost in a sea of stories celebrating these asshole's lives. People will remember them for their music or their movies, but they should mostly be remembered for fucking up their lives and ending promising careers too soon because they let addictions get the best of them.
