What's the Deal with Celebs and Crime?
Doesn't it seem like anyone that has at least 15 seconds on E!
has been involved in some type of criminal situation at one time? It was all kinda funny until yesterday when I actually caught myself seriously thinking ... "I better get into an altercation soon or NONE of my movies are going to be made!" That thought scared me a bit and I wondered how many other people have not only had the passing thought, but let those 'shining examples' influence them into some scandalous action as well? I know.. I know, people make their own decisions and there's already too much blame placed on others for our OWN behaviour.. but really, let's just look at the most recent handful of stories...uh.. this week...
1) Ty Law
(less) almost outruns police - (well, he was running away
from a 2004 Rolls-Royce)
2) Mike Danton
(St. Louis Blues) for Murder-for-hire
scheme - he must need a better 'contract'
3) Brice Hunter
(former Tampa Bay Bucs) Chicago apartment - loud music - fight - then shot to death
4) Courtney Love
(this is an easy one) Drugs, Assault/Battery, Murder, Missing Money
, Drugs, Contempt of Court... did I say Drugs yet?
5) Kelly Osbourne
- Good: MTV Show - Bad: CD 'Shut Up' Good: she did shut up Bad: Drug re-hab
6) Lil' Kim
7) Rapper T.I
. (and his next CD should be titled "Mugg Shot")
8) Sha Baoliang
, Chinese Pop Star ( think Kung Pao Chicken + Britney Spears) at drug party
9) Kevin Spacey
, lies about park attack - ends up tripping over his own Jack Russell
We're all examples to someone in life but Celebs/Pro-Athletes/Artists all have more responsibility for their actions
(whether they agree or not)...
because here's where it matters
