Lookin’ at me, lookin’ at you

Ah Betty ... how could you?

Just a few weeks ago we were all bothered about yet another female celebrity caught naked, after someone hacked into her private cellphone stash. I still can’t figure what’s the problem – she took the pictures herself and obviously wanted somebody besides herself to see them (otherwise she could have just used a mirror to look at her own ass).

Maybe she doesn’t want us all to see these photos; maybe she just doesn’t want us all to see these photos for free. Maybe she would rather we pay 10 bucks for a movie ticket to get a glimpse of her ass … I don’t know.

The news said the FBI is investigating to find out who stole the pictures and leaked them; maybe the actress wants to give him a commission for getting her name out there. Wow, good to know there aren’t more dangerous criminals that the FBI should be looking for.

We live in a world of self absorption and technological privilege. The internet has opened up our lives with a huge picture window that isn’t always so easy to close.

Meanwhile, we fuel the gossip whores by listening and watching. Somebody’s always watching – and it’s no wonder, because somebody’s always putting something out there to watch.
