What's the Difference (addiction and celebrity)
About an hour ago, I saw one of those fantastically sexy Fiat commercials (if youve ever driven a Fiat then you know why they're selling them with sex and not engineering). All of the sudden, I see it and I can;t believe my eyes-It's that crackhead Charlie Sheen. So, I start wondering...I think about Lindsey Lohan, who has never really been able to find work because of her issues with addiction, and I think of Whitney Houston, whom so many were infuriated at the flying of a flag at half mast for, and it makes me wonder just why in the world it's so wonderfully acceptable for Charlie Sheen to be an addict. It's as though his cocaine-induced fiascos did wonders for his career (i never found him to be terribly talented, not WHitney Houston talented at least), and yet while society condems the likes of Houston and Lohan, it seems to be applauding, rewarding even, the very public addict antics of Sheen. I'm torn of why I feel this is. The main thing I wonder about is if it because he is a man because that's an obvious guess, but I was wondering what anyone else thinks.
