Maybe People Isn't So Bad After All?

I have Jessica Simpson on a personal media blackout. I refuse to read about her in the three magazines I subscribe to, People, Vanity Fair, and EW (not that she manages to warrant a mention in the latter...you actually have to have a real career and/or actual talent to grace those pages), I never read the entries about her on ONTD, and I never browse her thread at any celebrity forum. She's simply too stupid, too desperate, too untalented, and too grasping for me to pay attention to. Give me Angelina Jolie or Keira Knightley any day of the week and twice on Sunday's over that nimrod.

So, a few Saturday's ago, I get that week's issue of People with the mentally damaged famewhore's "I'm In Love" story on the cover. Didn't read it because like I said, just don't care. Also, I must add as a sidenote that I am not really a fan of People anymore. In the last year and a half, they have more than proven to me that they are on publicity agents' payrolls with the bullshit spin they report as celebrity "news". I have been planning on letting my subscription lapse, writing a disdainful letter to them explaining why I find their periodical so lame, and have barely been able to work up the interest to read it anymore.

But just like Michael Corleone in the godawful third installment, just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in.

For those of you who don't waste $56 a year on a subscription, allow me to explain their letters-to-the-editor M.O. People always, ALWAYS, prints equally positive and negative letters about a cover subject two issues after it ran. Unless it's something or someone who is universally abhorred, they always balance the feedback. So imagine my surprise when this week's issues had five letters to the editor about JSimp and they were ALL negative! Not one single sympathetic sentiment to be found! Bravo, People, bravo!

Now I know that they did this merely to "get back" at Jessucka because she "used" them to get ink about her faux relationship with John Mayer, so it does have the stink of petty vengeance all over it, but still, it made my Saturday!
