Celebrity Drama of the Week: Chris Brown and Rihanna
Ironically, OK magazine’s February 16, 2009 issue has a story on page 6 entitled “Rihanna Is a Needy Girl.” The magazine, and story, is released on the heels of the dramatic story of Chris Brown’s alleged beating of Rihanna. If Chris is guilty, there is no excuse for what he did to Rihanna, but it is interesting to see one flip side of the relationship.
Knowing how badly she wanted him around, yet how badly she was treated is disturbing.
I find several celebrity couples disturbing. (No others in this article are disturbing because of domestic violence. That would require an entirely different article.)
Disturbing Celebrity Couples: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
Demi Moore is 46. Ashton Kutcher is 31. Demi looks about the same as she did when she was 31, but in the real world isn’t there a world of difference between the thought paradigms and social experiences of a 46 year-old and a 31 year-old?
I get the feeling she makes him feel like a stud, helping dispel the idiot kid persona that seems to hover over him like That 70’s Show lingers on TV as re-runs.
On the other hand, at 46 he must make her feel like a hot lady. She does appear ageless. I can’t help but wonder if she has any original external body parts left.
Disturbing Celebrity Couples: Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
Here’s the relationship that gives me the creeps. Michael Douglas, age 64, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, age 39. In his day, Michael Douglas was a head turner. Catherine Zeta-Jones is a head turner. You know love is blind when these two head turners turned toward each other.
They look like father and daughter together. He was 25 when she was born. Do the math, when she was in kindergarten he was 30. Thinking about it like that gives me the creeps.
Disturbing Celebrity Couples: Madonna and Jesus Luz
Madonna needs to come to terms with her age. She is 50. Jesus is a kid, only 22. He is only 10 years older than her daughter.
Disturbing Celebrity Couples Make a More Interesting World
To each his or her own. Each of us has unique characteristics that draw us to one love and repel us from another. Love is what it is, but then so is lust.
The sad and disturbing thing is that in some of these cases you can’t help but wonder if the elder is in search of maintaining or recapturing their youth at the expense of another person.
Where love exists, may it flourish. Where self-interest and pride have become gods, may they crumble so that the captive in the relationship may be free to find their life’s true love.
