Another week, another celebrity sex scandal. Seriously famous folks, you live in the fucking spotlight. Can’t you learn that you need to work a little on keeping it in your pants?
Annie said it right the other day, “Why would a celebrity even make a sex tape?”
Why indeed would a national figure, be he the President or a late night talk show host, risk all of that work for a couple minutes on Mister Toad’s wild ride?
Yesterday, David Letterman told the entire nation that he slept with staff members on his show for years. He also told us that he’s only telling us this in the first place cause we were going to find out anyways. Better to hear it from the jackass’ mouth first I guess.
He was going to be blackmailed, or so the sordid story goes. So he gave it up. Now this stuff happened before Letterman was married, and so far I don’t think anything under age or non consensual happened, but David can’t not look a little sleazy for this. Too bad to. He seemed like a stand up guy there. Even had Obama on his show last week. What a difference a day makes.
Now Letterman, like many other entertainers before him, including recently in the news Roman Polanski-who by the way I am no longer forgiving, the man is a fucking criminal- is stirring up emotions about just what it means to be a flawed figure in the public eye. An eye that has no room for flaws. People are being all, “how could he make all those Monica Lewinsky jokes then?” Like they’re shocked that he would.
This is coming only months after Letterman pissed off a bunch of uptights with a joke about Sarah Palin’s daughter and Alex Rodriguez. He’s really not on his best this year it seems.
But at least he’s not painfully unfunny like NBC’s late night shtick. Conan and Jimmy Fallen hurt, really hurt most of the time. And Leno’s new show? The fuck is happening to late night? Johnny Carson is rolling around in his grave. Probably Ed McMahon too.
What do I think of this whole affair? Frankly, it ain’t none of my business, and I stopped watching Letterman when he stopped throwing shit off of roofs. So what the fuck ever. But seriously celebrities. You guys need to shape the Hell up. This is getting ridiculous now.
