Why is it that whenever some random nobody gets suddenly thrown into the spotlight, followed by cameras 24 hours a day, the world is shocked, shocked, when they start to act like… flawed human beings?
The Ted Williams story is driving me goddamn bonkers because we’re talking about a homeless guy with a substance abuse problem. Becoming famous isn’t going to suddenly eradicate whatever issues he has to work out in his life. If anything, having his entire life suddenly thrust in the spotlight will make it harder for him.
I swear I’m one of the few people that hardly gives a damn about people’s mistakes and fuck-ups. We’re okay when close friends and relatives get the occasional DUI and what have you, why is it that famous people are expected to be perfect?
