Singer/actress or talentless fame whore?

As if it wasn't bad enough that they resurrected Melrose Place, the TV powers-that-be actually hired Ashlee Simpson-Wentz for a 12-episode stint. She has consequently been fired for lack of talent. In Touch calls it "the beginning of the end of her career." What career, pray tell, would you be referring to? Who is this Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, and why should I care? Oh, you mean the one who's only claim to fame is that Jessica Simpson is her sister? And the one who's lip-syncing disaster on SNL exposed her for the talentless fraud that she is? And the one who named her kid Mowgli?

Who is this useless twat, and why is she taking up space in ANY celeb mag? That she would actually want to associate herself with the Jessica Simpson legacy is an indication of this girl's intelligence. She's done absolutely nothing that's been even remotely close to noteworthy. She's a terrible actress. Her latest album Bittersweet World apparently sucked ass.

You'd think there would be some effort required to become famous, some talent or extraordinary skill needed. Evidently, this is not the case. It seems there are more and more of these faux celebrities, and less and less real ones filling the pages of gossip rags and websites. There should be some kind of minimum requirement to make it into the collective consciousness. That way, we could mitigate the amount of useless garbage filling up our psyches. Sure, we could still talk trash about those "famous" people, but at least they would have earned their spot in our musings.

I think Tom Cruise is a little deranged. Ok, maybe a lot. However, I cannot deny that Tom is a movie star, and can therefore tolerate his presence in my immediate media surroundings.  I also LOVED his performances in Jerry Maguire and Tropic Thunder. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, on the other hand, needs to be flushed out with all the other fame whore turds clogging up our limited attention spans.
