His girlfriend lost herself in the pages of cheaply printed tabloids. He's had enough.
This guy's got the right mindset.
Even though this video by Tom Gill is about his girlfriend's magazines, pretty much anyone can relate.
In this spoken word poem, Gill talks about the vicious way tabloid magazines talk about celebrities — and the severe emotional toll it takes on his girlfriend.
Take a look:
This got me thinking about American tabloids, so I looked some up.
Some, if not all, of them are ridiculous... In my country, every famous woman is regularly judged by magazines at the checkout stand.
I felt the need to be judgmental right back on a couple of covers.
She'll tell you ... if she wants you to know.
I could go on for days about how wrong it is that people are even devoting paper to whether or not someone had plastic surgery. Without just asking.
Announcing that someone had plastic surgery when they haven't told you is like asking when someone's due date is ... and you don't know if they're pregnant.
Speaking of pregnancy, I bet Jennifer Aniston's stomach has had more covers, photographs, and articles published about it than most people.
Her "baby bump" (I hate that phrase with the hot fire of a million suns) has more to do with the way she's standing. She doesn't have a bump. The clothing does — and those bumps and are not unborn children.
I would also like to point out that not two weeks later, Jennifer Aniston's non-existent "baby bump" disappears to reveal her "new" bangin' body.
The exact same body she had two weeks earlier.
I know. It's absurd.
The bottom line: These tabloids take accomplished, successful, award-winning women...
...and boil them all down to their looks, if they're starting a family, and if they've got a man to love.
That's all you care about?
