Rantin' and rollin' with T- Bone about so called "celebrities"!

I often wonder about todays "celebrities". Kardashian, Hilton, Stodden ... WTF?  Who are these people? Why are they worthy of reality tv shows or our attention period?  (When did you get to be "famous" just for being "famous"?)   Most of these people probably aren't bright enough to take out the garbage, let alone do something truly worthy of our attention and/or admiration.  (Even Lyndsey Lohan had some talent. Her acting career brought her into the headlines way before her addictions made her a mainstay there!)

Many of you probably agree with me on this, Tommy Lee apparently does anyway!  He recently unloaded on all these fake celebs ... well, primarily the reality tv people ... via facebook.  (Yes, he's done some reality tv himself but he's also genuinely talented! He was famous for that first!!)


Here's what he had to say: (Some of the wording is NSFW!)

"I’m a celebrity….really? “I think that means being famous, having pissed on the world’s fire hydrant, leaving your mark for years to come and making a dent in the globe the size of the hole in the ozone? The world’s view of a celeb today is the most f**ed up, watered down bull***t I’ve ever seen. I’ve been in this game for many years now and the abundance of lame TV shows really sets a gruesome standard. Stupid shows about finding love on national TV? Partying in Jersey? Trapped on some island? Celebrity Rehab? The B-C crew that weren’t celebs in the 1st place!! Celebrity Apprentice? If you are a celeb why are you looking for an internship?”

“People wonder 'where the hell did the rock star go?' THE BOWIE’s, PRINCE’s, MICK JAGGER’s, They’re STILL here people!,” Tommy continued. “There’s nobody to blame but our own silly ass! We watch the s**t like fans at an Indianapolis 500 race where folks only go just to wait for a fiery crash and burn! Ok I admit I do it too…but for the love of Jesus, I know it’s not right. Do you? Really? And these people who have their few episodes of airtime go on to host parties, sell perfumes, wonder why they’re not bigger than they are? They wonder why their “stars” don’t continue to “rise.” WOW!”

“Do you guys remember the days of talent?” “Something God gave you, or YOU crafted it into something special that people wanted to go see again and again! And if you were lucky and you made it, you found a way to showcase what you could do? And get paid? Getting paid for your God-given talent…that rules. I am lucky.”

“Celeb Dj’s? Ok!…don’t even get me started!!...how is that some (and I use the word super-loosely) celebrities show up and plug in their ipod or slam their “killer mix tape CD” and pretend to have created or dance behind the turntables to some shit that they have no idea how it was recorded or what machines or people created these yummy beats/songs!!!.....Celebrity!...The most misused word EVER! Getting beaten up more every day!”

“Here’s an example for you……CELEB CHEATERS? Yep, they’re out there. We all know that. And so does everybody else. But please…a TV SHOW??..Enter that tattooed Jesse James chick and Tigers Ping-fling! Nailed that putt, didn’t he? Here’s how I see Christmas going down at those girls’ houses: Hey mom n dad! I’ve got a job this year! Look, I’ve got a show, with a cool girl I met in L.A. We’re into the same stuff – like f***ing rich guys for the sake of entrapment. It’s great. It comes with a 401K plan. Aren’t you guys proud of me?”

“The last thing these home wreckers need is more attention! They are nothing but fame whores and giving them a show is only rewarding them for their disgusting behavior. They should be forgotten! What were their names again? All I’ll remember is that one of them looked like MARILYN MANSON.”

You tell 'em Tommy, you tell 'em!!
