It’s good to be bad?

Why are we as a culture rewarding bad behavior by celebrities? Because bad press is better than no press?

Chris Brown
Rob Ford (the mayor of Toronto)
Justin Bieber
Lindsay Lohan

…ad infinitem (I think that’s right. If not then so on and so on)

The only time we hear about these people is when they’re behaving badly. Or being stupid. Or (fill in the blank with a negative).

My parents always told us that you get more flies with honey than with vinegar, so I ask you: is being good, law abiding, decent now a bad thing? Does one have misbehave to get anywhere in life? Because you know that if any of us non famous people did anything close to what celebrities do our asses would be in jail/rehab/the ground. If we can’t get away with it, why should they?

Because they’re famous and we like seeing them fall on their faces? Are we THAT shallow?

I have to keep track of that for any job I have. They call it “pop culture”.

We need more Paul Walkers/Jared Letos/Bonos and fewer Justin Biebers/Chris Browns and those of that ilk.

Is that to much to ask?
