I got this idea from Pewdiepie’s Pew News. The point is to share news and share my unbiased thoughts about it. I’m not sure if this is a good thing (you know ’cause people might hate me for my opinions) but let’s see what happens!
The Ellen Adarna Thing
Ellen Adarna, an actress, insta-stories a girl who she thinks was taking a video/picture of her and John Lloyd Cruz. She captioned her story as “When you pap us, we pap you too!” You can read more here or here.
Being a celebrity has a lot of perks – getting your picture taken a lot is one of them. It’s not a fan’s fault for trying to take a picture of a celebrity when they see one. A celebrity is a public figure and they tend to lose a part of their privacy upon becoming one.
Having said that, I don’t understand why Ellen would think it was okay for her to reciprocate what the girl is allegedly doing. What exactly is the end goal of her actions? If anything, it shows how classless she is. I honestly think it would’ve been better if she just approached her and told her to stop (if she really was taking a video of her).
Is it alright for fans to take pictures of their idols? Yes, but fans should also be mindful and respectful of the situation. It’s always better, a million times better if they ask for permission first. Long story short, I don’t like Ellen for being John Lloyd’s new girl and I dislike what she did. She really came across as privileged and conceited.
If you don’t like that side of fame, then don’t try to be famous.
David Guison and that Bipolar Caption
Long story short, this guy loosely used the word bipolar in his caption to describe a watch. Read more here.
Everybody is sensitive nowadays. I think this situation is exactly that. Bipolar can be used as an adjective but it is also a mental disorder. What he did wasn’t entirely wrong but it is insensitive to those who are suffering from mental disorders.
For someone who is in the limelight often, he should’ve really thought first before using that word. There are a million other adjectives that could’ve been used but he opted for that one. Sometimes we are so caught up in the moment that we just post things. We should always remember to think before we post! Although I honestly really don’t like this guy. He comes off across as someone who feels special just cause he has a massive (?) following. Plus his style is whack.
That’s it for now. I’ll try to find more substantial news pieces in the future but for now let’s keep it light and steady with fun pieces from social media. Let me know what you think of these (non-) issues.
