Anyone else burnt out from celebrity gossip being so negative and depressing these past few years?

Feels like every big story has been about abuse and sexual assault nonstop for the past few years, and it’s exhausting. These are important issues of course, but damn I wish things could be more light hearted and fun.

No shit, OP

What kind of gossip do you want to hear?

Love triangles like Angelina, Brad, and Jennifer Aniston only happen every so often.

R1 Gossip that has nothing to do with abuse and rape, please.

What’s more depressing is who is considered a celebrity these days.

Yes. I miss the pointless celebrity drama of the early 2000s.

Kelly Osborne vs. Christina Aguilera

Lindsay Lohan vs. Ashlee Simpson

Etc.

It was all so messy and fun.

Bimbo Summit (Lindsay, Britney, and Paris sitting in the front seat of a car) can only happen once in maybe 30 years.

The only gossip I'm only interested for are gay rumours and outings.

The poors love this stuff as it gets them away from thinking about their own pathetic, meaningless little lives.

What disturbs me about it is that it doesn't seem to indicate that Americans are turning on the celebrity culture or worshipping fame any less. It just speaks to our increasingly nasty and cynical nature. I wouldn't want to necessarily go back to the past where celebrities are treated as infallible godlike beings though.

I miss when the attitude toward celebrities was reverential, but there was still room to laugh at their foibles. Now, whenever a celeb does something problematic™, it becomes part of a larger cultural discourse/war. It's exhausting.

Obsessed fans with a parasocial relationship with some celebrities aren't helping, either. Making death threats against those who criticize your "fave" is insane.

The recent revelations about Sean Combs are especially vile. He is an absolute monster.

Great observation OP. That is why I spend more and more time on DL where there is so little negativity and depressing and nasty and snark and hate and more depressing and……..
