Yeah, they're famous..

In the world we're living, famous people are like, well, famous. Everyone wants to meet them, talk to them, get their autograph. It's like, "OMIGOSH! I just saw Taylor Swift!". And you know what? I'd think it was a pretty big deal if i saw Taylor Swift, hanging around my hometown.

But why do we think they're so awesome? Because they're famous, everyone knows who they are.
Come on, though -- we're all human beings, we were all created by God. Why do we think celebs are so much better than, well, normal people?

I love the Diary of a Teenage Girl series, by Melody Carlson. I've been reading the diaries written by Chloe Miller, one of Melody Carlson's characters, for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about. Chloe and her friends have this band, and suddenly they're discovered, and her diaries tell about them becoming like, famous and stuff.

You know what? This made me realize just how normal famous people are to the rest of us. I mean, my dad has all this recording stuff and whatever, so that he can record music. If I wanted, I could get him to record me singing some songs, ask him to put it together, and then sell it online or something. Ya see, these days, it's not that hard.

So, I know I already said this -- but, why do we give famous people so much attention? It's like, God, the creater of everything, whose bigger than the entire universe -- doesn't get as much attention as some of us.

We're listening to all this music from people that everyone's talking about, watching all these movies that everyone loves, wearing these clothes that just rock. But, why? I mean, God did create us to have some fun, yeah. But what's the point of living if you're not doing it for God?

We're not gonna be here, on earth, for that long. I know some people think, "Hey, I have my whole life ahead of me! I'll talk to that girl at school some other day, when I know what to talk about".
"What society sees and calls monumental, God sees through and calls monstrous."

This means that, when this world thinks, "Hey, I need to loose 20kg to be like so-and-so", God is just, well, disguested. When we wear things that are totally in fashion, but really like, inappropriate -- when we know they are -- God just finds that "Shockingly hideous!"

Some things to think about there, for me, too. I gotta go, but I'm sure I'll be posting about this again... :)

Luv,Emii

  5. I don't think anything is wrong with looking up to celebrities unless, you overdo it or they are bad role models.
