No, I could care less who you are sparking with, or how. What I am tired of is the inevitable Drama (capital D) that comes in the wake of a released personal video.
First comes the breathless announcement from some sleazily reliable source that such a video exists, along with links to make sure everyone goes to the right sleazily reliable website to see for themselves. This is followed by a hailstorm of condemnation that can only come after something has been viewed several million times. After that comes the celebrity statement, which can go one of two ways: Defiantly playing the victim because something very personal and private has been leaked to the universe, or tearfully playing the victim because something very personal and private has been leaked to the universe.
Then the dust settles, we wait a week, and it happens again with a different celebrity.
And it's all very tiresome. I'm serious. Rolling your eyes all the time because of something so unpardonably stupid will wear a person out. And it's not just you. It's equally tiring just to sit through all the thumping commentary from the people who have to watch the tape 50 or 60 times to make sure of how horrible it is.
So stop. Just stop. The world has real problems and you're just cluttering it up. Not to mention, eeuuww.
