TV Made Me Do It!

I tend to stay away from blogging about people like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan because I prefer not to “feed the beast” as it were. But this one time…this one time it is so mind-numbingly stupid I had to comment.

Lindsay – who has been linked to several different famous men in recent months, including Paris Hilton’s ex Stavros Niarchos – told Elle magazine: “My mum is going to kill me for speaking about sleeping with people. But I don’t want to put myself in the position where I’m in a monogamous relationship right now. I’m not dating just one person. ‘Sex and the City’ changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.”

Wow…just…wow. So, you can blame TV shows for any bad behavior?!? SWEET!

“I’m sorry officer, I was driving fast because I just watched COPS and it looked like you guys enjoyed doing this!”

“Yes you fool, I pity you just as Mr. T pitied fools on The A-Team.”

“What do you mean there is no planet named Melmac?!? A.L.F. was from there!”

“What do I know about life? You take the good, you take the bad and there you have the facts of life…”

I could go on and on for hours, but let’s think about this for a minute. Lohan was approx 18 when Sex And The City ended it’s run. Meaning she was about…12?…when it started? It changed so much for her? What the hell was she was doing when she was 11?!? “Oh mom…I wish I could be sexually liberated and date and sleep with as many men as I want! If only there was a show that could change things for me!”

Make of it what you will, but don’t blame Homer Simpson if you have a doughnut addiction.
