Two hours to muse
And trash, peruse.
Mags that dish the dirt.
Callous words and pictures,
Designed to cut and hurt.
Celebrities, I know not names,
Their efforts grant
Esteem and fame
And public humiliation.
Her hair’s a mess,
Look at her dress,
What a fright she looks!
Women mostly, though
Some men, warrant
Inclusion in these books.
I never see these mags at all
Except when hair needs gutting
Colour, style and, all the while,
Not just my hair gets cutting.
I know that some seek publicity,
Any type at all,
So, fair game seems to be the name
Of reporters; a free-for-all.
Rebuke and trash,
Perhaps they’re photoshopped.
I’m just so glad
That I’m not one whose name
Is lifted and then dropped.
An awful life,
Though some may think
Fame is worth the fortune,
But picked and prodded,
Would be my cup of poison.
Mr Wilde was wrong.

Sounds like our male politicians, they’re all tart’s! 🙂
Lol. Think maybe they write for some of these mags?! :)x
Ha! I actually read the whole thing.
Did you see my latest Photoshpped page, and then go to the link where there are 55 more pictures of this crap? No wonder young girls are having problems attaining the ‘perfect’ body. It is unattainable. These poor NORMAL girls are taught to hate their body unless they look like these photoshopped images. Then on the other side of the coin, since many of these fall into GQ, Maxim, and Victoria Secret show photos and catalogs, boys look at these and expect the perfect woman/girl to resemble these women. Nuts! So both are messed up with these unreal ads and photo shoots. How sad of a generation we are raising. Add on top of that mothers who are desperately trying to shoo away age, conquer these images of women, and to be the ideal older person (Raquel Welch, Jane Fonda, just to name two). This is all messed up. Crazy Making!
I saw that post. It was amazing how they did it. But so wrong. As you say, no wonder people have a distorted image of women and women of themselves.
I ‘read’ two such magazines today where the crap is just mind-blowing. But, I did feel sorry for most of the celebs who were being ridiculed beyond belief. And I don’t know that some of the horror pictures hadn’t been photoshopped to make them newsworthy. You just can’t trust what you see. ;)x
Now, for Americans, add we can’t trust the major media venues, and what do we have? Nothing we can trust to see, hear, or read. What kind of a world are we in? Now you see why I like my cave, and why I am so afraid of the day when I will have to go back into the real world. I may have to add agoraphobia to my list of disabilities.
Any room in that cave? Lol ;)x
Well, you can fit in between Minxy and Wicca. Wizard is curled in a blanket sitting right next to me, so there is no room there. I am sure the cats won’t mind you, as long as you pet them non-stop while sitting there.
Wicca! What a cool name for a cat. Hope they don’t smell dog off me. My dog. Not me! :)x
I wanted to name her something that wasn’t usual since she is solid black, well except for the casual grey hair, which we are pulling as soon as we find them. I noticed so many people name them blackie, ebony, shadow, Smokey, etc. It was either Wicca or Aleister Crowley, and I think people might look at me funny either because they don’t know who is, or that the name is sincerely fucked up.
I had to look him up! He looks like what’shisface out of The Addams Family? Better with Wicca, methinks. :)x
He wrote the Devil’s bible of the Satan’s Bible, not sure which one it was, but it comes out the same way. He was in London, I believe, and he established the first Satanic Church there. It spread, like plagues do, to America, and thus we have the Senate, Congress, and the President.
LMAO!!!! Well, at least you have someone to blame! :)x
I always click right through anyway. How would I get to see Hugh otherwise? :)x
I heard that! You hussy! Bloody Hugh…he’s got a lot to answer for…how am I going to measure up to him? 🙂
Hussy?! What a belter! Can anyone measure up to Hugh? Even my hubby’s getting a bit fed up of me calling him Hugh, in the dark. 🙂 Kiddin’ on. I wouldn’t do that. Well, I haven’t so far. ;)x
Poor bugger! Your husband has been measured against that Hollywood Hunk for so long. (ask him to change his name to Hugh…then when you call out in the dark he’ll just think it’s him that has you all in a ……(you know….hot & bothered place!). But I didn’t say that! Glad no one else is reading this 🙂
Not that long. It used to be George Clooney. I’m fickle. :)x
lol 🙂 Next week?
You might be in with a shout! We’ve had Mel Gibson too in the past. Before he went all arsey and mad. Um, Viggo Mortensen from Lord of the Rings. Um, that might be it. So far. I think. :)x
Viggo….?? who mentioned Viggo??? 😉 Hmm you were bored at the hairdressers huh? x
They will offer those mags! Must take a book the next time. 🙂
Viggo one of your faves? ;)x
I know and aren’t we the suckers for reading them – though the recipes are ok 😉
*Nods* uh huh ~ erm yup yup yup 😉 x
Good taste! In men. Not mags. I never saw any recipes! :)x
lol – definitely good taste in men 😉 x
great perspective on all the trash and smut mags….it’s the only time i look at the as well…if at all 😉
I usually take my kindle. I forgot. I won’t again. ;)x
yeah and then you can blog while you wait ;)..
Good idea. :)x
Abs love this big sis! xx
That’s what comes of reading trashy mags. Feeling sorry for celebs. ;)x
Loved the last line (or comment) about wilde.
We used to get those mags for downtime but they go too far now (plus I’ve never heard of half the ‘celebs’)
At least writers are too boring to be famous in that way!
Well seen Oscar was a bit of a celebrity himself. ;)x
That’s true. Maybe there are too many other famous people now for authors to get too much notoriety. (Or maybe I’m deluded or don’t read the right rags!)
There are too many celebs is my take on it. But, they do seem to crave the attention. So, let them get on with it. We can read something else instead. :)x
