i completely agree with that. Ive also been pretty harsh about it on facebook and pissed some friends off. i did the same thing when MJ died as well. Why should i feel bad about someone stupid enough to allow themselves to fall victim to drugs? Meanwhile those same drugs theyre abusing could be used to help someone that cant afford them.

People would rather cry about a drug addict dying because of the problem they created, Instead of a kid dying of hunger because of the poverty they are born with.

Human life suffers from inflation.

To be fair she did much more than any of the one million people wish people we would care about. Kurt Cobain doesn't seem to be some scumbag that people could give two shits about. At least Houston did charity and cared somewhat. What about Hendrix, Lennon, Chris Farley, Heath Ledger. Didn't see people criticizing these situations.

I think this sentiment has been lurking about the populace for a while now

We all gotta go sometime. I personally have never been one to be bothered with so called "celebrity" deaths. Shit, people none of us know die every minute, why then should we all make a big fuss when someone famous dies just because we've seen them on TV.

I especially don't get it when the person who died clearly shortened their own life.

I personally think we'd all be better off if we concentrated our love, kindness and affection on those around us in our everyday lives or even strangers we happen to cross paths with in life.

Instead we use those emotions on strangers we have 0 connection with other than watching them through the idiot box, AKA TV, AKA brainwashing media numero uno.
