Music, movies, TV, celebrities, what’s not to love? Those who shape our culture and their creations enrich our lives, and that seems reason enough to praise them/rip their creative expressions and lives to shreds.
Unless their name is Anna Kendrick. I really like Anna Kendrick.
The Biebs wanted to pay tribute to his Moms, so obviously he got a tattoo of an eyeball in his elbow pit. God damn this kid is the coolest.
I never really watched Glee, even though I’m partial to choreographed pop covers, the occasional Fox programming, and Jane Lynch. It’s probably because I’ve got a backlog of TV shows to watch longer than the line at Georgetown Cupcake and I try to avoid anything my parents like, with the exception of Top Gun.
Anyway, when I heard late last night that star of the show Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room, I obviously figured it was a drug overdose. Dude’s been in and out of rehab and has been very public about his problems, so this seems like a no brainer for those looking to jump to conclusions.
But I’ve got a serious rebuttal for that explanation. They’re all saying this guy was 31, yet he was playing a high schooler just a few years ago. He still looks 25, maybe, but he definitely doesn’t look 31. And yeah I know that Hollywood regularly uses actors in their mid 20s to play high schoolers, but this guy is making Andy Milonakis look old. Bottom line: There’s no way this dude was on a ton of drugs. No chance a thirty-year old drug addict could play a teenager. Drug addicts look like this. Not like this. For all we know those trips to rehab could have been publicity stunts like when Donny Osmond almost faked a drug arrest.
I’m not going to sit here and say that foul play was involved here, but then again I’m absolutely going to say foul play was involved.
UPDATE: My bad, Monteith died of a heroin and alcohol overdose. Can’t be right about everything, I guess.
