Is it just me, or are celebrities becoming monsters? The old days in Hollywood were filled with class, style, romance, and talent. The biggest gossip was about who was romantically linked to who, what the stars were wearing and driving, and how to be more like them. Celebrities were icons of style, power, philanthropy, and grace. Today, it seems to be a contest for who can be arrested the most, be divorced the most often, and say the most tasteless things. You are not worth talking about unless you have been caught with cocaine, beat up your girlfriend, or forgot to wear underwear today. Fame is no longer about setting an example of elite society–it is about becoming a disgusting icon of hot mess, and doing it publicly and loudly. Gone are the days of Audrey Hepburn, now is the day of Heidi Montag and Britney Spears. Where are the heartthrob gentlemen like Gene Kelly and Cary Grant–now we have Mel Gibson and John Mayer. What happened along the road that changed the definition of celebrity, and made it into a monster? The more TV you watch, the more you realize that the golden age of Hollywood is truly dead.
