Beautiful People: The ongoing Crisis

Aw, Jae….you just had to ruin a great final line with a disclaimer!!! No fun!!!

To elaborate slightly on my ‘beautiful people’ bit….think about it: Beautiful people don’t have to do anything. They just have to be. So there’s no compelling reason/urge to make their mark on the world around them outside of being, in the words of Derek Zoolander, “really, really, really good-looking”.

I realized that I left out the ladies in my diatribe and for that I apologize. Gals, you knows I loves ya.

Here’s some good examples:

Music: Chrissy Hynde vs. oh, let’s say Jewel to make it even. How about just singers? Aretha Franklin vs. Aaliyah.
Books: Flannery O’Conner vs….shit..are there even any beautiful female authors? Help me out here…
Movies: Well, when was the last time you heard of a sexy actress directing a film? We can make it easier with just actresses..Kathy Bates is 1000% more talented than oh, let’s say Catherine Zeta Jones.

If someone can correct me on any of these, I’d love to see/hear it…
