I was reading about this new online game that seems to me to have been inspired by people like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and the rest of the Hollywood sleaze. I find it a little disturbing that these are the kind of people kids are looking up to these days. Obviously, from this article, it's not just an American thing anymore. I don't know what to think really. I mean, jeez, what's the appeal of those people anyway?? I don't get it. They're not even talented. This game is just a reflection on what the media has already been teaching young girls for a while now. They grow up believing that they need to look perfect, be famous, get plastic surgery, weigh next to nothing, and nab some rich guy to be worth anything. It's kind of disgusting. I feel bad when these kids grow up and actually have to deal with reality. Anyway, any thoughts?

Here's the article. I think the creator sounds very creepy. I love how he justifies what he's doing when really, he knows he's wrong. Money is king I guess. Whatever.

I've got four teenage niece's they all seem pretty well balanced at the moment , yes they are into  this celebrity culture , but they are also doing well at school and all want a decent career . It's money they want first and foremost , i keep telling them to leave the boys alone until their at least 25 and just enjoy themselves see the world a bit .
I think it's down to family  you just have to support them , i always tell them what i think , like Amy Winehouse needs a good scrub with soap and water and they just laugh at me .

I think that's pretty much what it comes down to. If you have a family that keeps you grounded in reality and actually takes the time to talk to you then you'll be okay. If anything, I think we're being so saturated with this celebrity junk that it will soon become boring to most people. It's already being mocked and seen as vapid and dull by most people. Although the fascination with it is still pretty strong. Like a train wreck I guess. Oh well. The Romans threw people to the lions. We watch our child stars self destruct and slowly kill themselves. Humans still love to witness suffering I guess!  ;D

Oh, I checked out that bimbo game and really, unless you have the IQ of a rabbit I really can't see how it would entertain you for more than ten minutes. It's extremely simple minded and dull. Click here, click there. The graphics aren't even any good. Mind numbing. But then I'm not a big "gamer."

I think the Bimbo game is meant to be satire. At least, I hope so.
