Young Men Love The Booty

I wonder what else is on his cellphone?

Some folks like to check the stock market on a regular basis to see how much money they have and some guys can't live without checking out the sports scores of their favorite teams on a regular basis. My little passion is checking out who's publisist is working overtime to get their clients on the covers of checkout stand magazines and entertainment television.

The rise of the celebutant as a cultural phenominon is something that has preplexed me for the past decade. Why anyone would consider the likes of Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears or Lindsay Lohan to be anything worth watching or paying attention to is beyond me. Yet, there are hundreds of websites and celebrity blogs that document their every move. These women have no known talent, nor do they contribute anything to society as whole, other than teaching young girls how to be anorexic and shallow.

One of my current favorites is Kim Kardashian. The daughter of the late Robert Kardashian, of O.J. Simpson defense fame. Kim and her pod of siblings help prop up "E!" Entertainment Television with their show called "Keeping Up With The Kardashians", which basically documents how rich and shallow people manufacture cheap and ditzy drama for the masses. Kim is pretty easy on the eyes and has a pretty face, not to mention a thermo-nuclear rear end.

While I have often wondered what sort of mind set would actually relish the idea of having a platoon of paparazzi document your every move, I have to assume it is because they have huge egos that need to be satisfied on a regular basis. Which is why I find this image (recently posted on "The Superficial") to be so funny.

Here is Kim, returning to her car after doing some athletic store shopping and she is mobbed by all these bystanders who whip out their cellphones and start taking pictures of her. Mind you, they aren't taking pictures of her as much as they are taking pictures of her ...ahem...assets.

I will never really understand where living the life of a fantasy peice of meat has any allure for anyone. Obviously, I have lost touch with the younger generation.

clicking on the picture takes you to the supersize version of Kim
