I agree that it's easy and more acceptable to call a celebrity names than a "real", non-famous person.

I just wish "whore" and "slut" would drop off the list of names people toss around at female celebs.

Moral question: If one was to run around the backallies punching whores in the face, would it be assault or vigilante justice?

I don't care what Winehouse looks like,. just as I don't care what The Miracles, Temptations, The Commodores, or The Marvelettes look like.

Sure it's easier to buy into a band or artist with a slick, market-ready image, but if people did that exclusively why would Radiohead be so lauded then?











































































See what I did there?

I think she looks absolutely ridiculous, but would be surprised if she ended up being famous for very long.

But Winehouse is so obviously marketing her image just for that purpose. It's because she's so radical or different or whatever that she got press to begin with.

I suppose if you're punching them just because they're whores, then it's assault. If the whores stole all your money or kicked all the puppies or something, then I guess you could try and call it vigilante justice.

But seriously, wtf are you trying to get at?

that's like not liking Thom Yorke because of his eye or Bono because he's fat.
Thom's eye is cool

Nothing really, just seemed like the natural follow-up question to xavi's comment.

maybe that would happen when some female celebs stop using whoriness as a tool to become famous
