Today we'll be looking at celebrities. Now, everyone has looked at a famous person and said "Why are they famous? They're not so great." But here, I'm asking you to name famous people who aren't even better than you at the thing they're famous for. I'll give you an example: my paragon of inexplicable fame is Pauly Shore. His wealth and renown come from being a comedian and an actor. But not only is he not funny, he's not a good actor either, and as gross as I am, he's not even better-looking than I am, which is, in its own way, a kind of a skill. You see what I'm getting at here? Celine Dion, as much as I loathe her, is at least a more technically proficient singer than I am. Rob Liefeld, despite being a horrendous writer, an incompetent businessman and a bad artist, is, by virtue of being able to draw (however badly), at least a better artist than I, who cannot draw at all. And Keanu Reeves, as deficient as he is as an actor, is not really famous for being an actor; he's famous for being good-looking, which he is able to accomplish and I am not. Pauly Shore, on the other hand, is wealthier and better-known than I am despite having no discernable talent whatsoever. It is hard to imagine him being better at anything than me. Likewise, Mary Higgins Clark is not famous for being beautiful or for having a golden voice or for being able to score 30 points a game; she is famous for being a writer, and yet I could literally write a better novel than any of hers in my sleep.
So, over to you, for this week's MONDAY SHITLIST: What celebrities do you think are the least deserving of their fame? Who has been vaulted to glory despite their apparent inability to do anything worthwhile that you couldn't do better?
