Media/celebrity – Think!

Posted: January 27, 2006 in Uncategorized
People in the media think they speak for everyone when they pry into the lives of people they have made celebrities. Only the other night Divina McCall said to Dennis Rodman that British people find it hard to understand him and are threatened by his mannerisms but not everyone see him as threatening just the small minority that do not mixed very much with people from other cultures!
Within the Big Brother house they were ask to undertake a task which required them to act like one of the other house mates. Chantelle said to Dennis that she does not know what he does, she can never understand him and proceeded to mimic black guys from rap videos. Why are there sill such stereotypes?
Also within the media over the past weeks, Sven-Goran Eriksson has been very big news. He has been given his last orders, take England to the World Cup then after that he will be paid of and his time as England manager will be over! All though his time as manager his name has been completely tarnish and the reasons are not very fair neither. One is he is the England manager and two he is foreign. Everyday you hear people complain that we need a English manger, but as history shows that is not ever the issue. Every England manager before Sven have been hounded by football journalists and they were English.
This is just my opinion and is not to cause for controversy, but is to be thought about! I long to work in the media but I do not want to stereotype or cause hurt to the lives of people who want to do things for England! Whether it is for entertainment value or to bring success to our Country, I would want to bring up the best, not dig up the worst in those who are contributing to our society!
As the years go on our Country will become more diverse and that is a good thing because they contribute to the fashion that changes so much more. But we do not seem to appreciate them or what they do for us, with small minded people we can never grow as people because we do not want to accept that their are people who are different, whether it is their colour of skin, their disability or their style. I enjoy meeting people who are different because they are interesting, they have experiences that make you look outside of the box and that is much more interesting that having to meet people who are just the same as the next following fashion and TV thinking thats the way to be somebody, but how interesting can you be when you are just like the person next to you?
As a Christian I have to be able to feel comfortable in my own skin or some of the scrutiny that I face I could not. I would be following the crowd, but I don’t follow anyone as even some Christians get it wrong and I do not fear them because I am strong and know myself and my God.
10 steps that I choose to live by are:
  • know where you fit in history
  • remember that God has plans for you
  • spend as much time making over who you are as you do what you look like
  • listen to God
  • listen to yourself
  • say sorry when you need to (and not when you want to)
  • tell God the bad and embarrasing
  • find friends who have beautiful insides
  • smile everyday!

I don’t expext you to do what I do or believe what I believe, but I do think that people should have their own lifestyles, their own reasons to believe in what they believe. Life is too short to live out someone elses life!

The media is not always right, sometimes people need to think for themselves.
“Don’t let other people think for you…Think for yourself!”
