On Bashing Celebrities

Oh, we just seem to love it when we can celebrate the crash and fall of celebrities. I’ve never really understood that. When I come across a celebrity-bashing during my web browsing, I generally skip over it without looking.

But I did click on the link below while googling celebrities and Homeowners Associations. Seems that rythm and blues star, Chris Brown, has tried to express himself with graffiti on the exterior of his home. His Hollywood neighbors don’t like it.

It’s funny, the huge HOLLYWOOD sign that’s become an international landmark for the movie community, is one of the trashiest plywood items to ever endure the rages of local Homeowners Associations. But if the HOLLYWOOD sign ever came down would that raise or lower property values in the area?

Just sayin’.

    Let’s see the car, the art and the trash cans. Didn’t Elvis write a song for this scene called “In the Ghetto?”
