America, it’s official: we’ve all turned stupid.
Can someone, anyone, explain to me why there’s such an outrage over the whole Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift incident at the Video Music Awards?
It’s not as if this is important. Frankly, more than 48 hours later, it’s not even interesting. Kanye always has and always will be a man with an ego. We get it.
Now get over it.
Sure, what he did was rude, but does it still need to dominate the news? Did it ever?
Simply put, no.
But we now live in a pop culture-obsessed society, one in which every trivial detail of celebritydom must be analyzed ad nauseum, with every Tom, Dick or Harry Knowles weighing in to give an opinion.
Is it possible, Americans, to go back to carrying about important issues like politics and religion (and to do so in a way that’s beyond yelling at everyone who might happen to disagree with your stance)?
Times have changed.
Technology is ruining us.
Do you realize that if today’s tweet-obsessed culture existed in the mid-1770s, we’d not have a free country?
