BEN IS FREE!!! BEN IS FREE!!!

weather: partly cloudy
outside: 22°C
mood: ecstatic
Ben is free!!!

Well, here's his chance to bolt, anyway.

I don't know why their relationship bothers me so much. It's not like I really liked Ben Affleck that much to begin with.

Bah. It looks like this is going to blow over. None of the magazines are publishing anything about it because they want to bid for exclusive coverage of the Bennifer Wedding.

*deflate*

Mmm... Maybe your relief stems not so much from liking Ben Affleck as it is disliking Jennifer Lopez? =)

I'd thought of that... but I can't imagine (remember?) what it is that I don't like about her. Her singing isn't great, but a lot of people don't sing well...

Mmm. It could be a whole nebulous mess of discrete reasons for disliking her, none of which is sufficient on their own, but together, just rub you the wrong way. I don't like her singing, or her material, and I really don't care for her style and mass-marketed, processed image.

There was an Onion article in the wake of 9/11 which bemoaned the media obsession with "serious issues" and spoke of Americans wanting to get back to a regular diet of fluffy, comforting, meaningless entertainment news, and was illustrated with a picture of Jennifer Lopez. The fact that her name alone is virtually synonymous with "stupid celebrity media coverage" speaks volumes.

Rereading this, the tone is a bit heavy. I don't really hate her or anything, that's just too much energy. She's just lumped in with all those other Hollywood folks who can command 8-figure salaries to make bland mass-market, lowest-common-denominator dreck, and have far too many pages of excessive press coverage dedicated to them, e.g. Julia Roberts, and lots of others who I don't particularly care to dredge my memory to name.

Y'know, what you wrote resonates with me as well. It's an overall "ick".
