life as a circus?
i have a, ahem, hobby that i like to read about frequently online. for my own reputation's sake, i'll keep the details private. so today, i'm reading my daily blogroll and many of them have a paparazzo pic of a famous actor that i love. he's bending down, picking up his suitcase at an airport. in the pic, you can see the top of his underwear. the comment sections of these posts are full of speculation as to what kind of underwear they are, personal opinions on that type of underwear, how he should have enough money to buy better underwear, etc. the saddest part? this guy is in sunny LA wearing sunglasses, a hat and a black hoodie with the hood pulled up, obviously attempting to avoid the photogs. i just felt really sorry for him. i mean the guy is just trying to get through the airport ( i hate getting through airports) and he's trying to be incognito and not only does that not work but people are bashing his undies! hey, we weren't supposed to even see his underwear. i know many people will argue that celebs can't complain about such intrusions because they're rich and they chose this life and whatnot. but seriously, they didn't trade their humanity. i don't envy them. i'll take my lack of millions over their lack of privacy any day. makes me feel kind of guilty even reading those sites. does that make me a contributor to the problem?
