Out of Touch Elitism: The Silly Priorities of Celebrities

By Debbie Schlussel
Yet another example of why celebs shouldn’t be involved with politics or any policy decisions. Sean “Diddy” Combs–the self-anointed head of the “Choose or Lose”/”Rock the Vote” movement–held his annual “White party” over Labor Day weekend. You must wear white to the party, or you cannot get in.
Billy Joel’s wife, Katie Lee, was turned away. She was wearing a light shade of cream and was offered the option of going home to change into pure white dress. She declined, choosing to go home and stay there. Good for her.

Katie Lee Joel in Off-White: Not White Enough for Diddy

Yes, that’s the guy we need telling America’s 18-year-olds to vote–the one who won’t let you in if you wear off-white. I don’t want kids who listen to him choosing my Prez. It’s good when we get low turnout among that demo. Anyway, the guy can’t even decide on his own name. First, he was Sean Combs, then “Puff Daddy”, then “P. Diddy”, and now just “Diddy.” Whatever.
So much for Diddy’s constant whine about White-on-Black racism (which certainly hasn’t kept him from becoming a gazillionaire, courtesy of White consumers who buy his stuff). He shows us color-consciousness in yet another stupid way.
The White obsession is a little weird.

I enjoy your website and columns. Thank you for not saying “Actors should not be involved” and instead using the word “celebs”. These folks are NOT actors but simply airheads; people famous for nothing really.
Certainly as an actress I bristle when folks insist that actors have somehow become 2nd class citizens or non-citizens by virtue of their vocation. Celebs – glitzy party types famous for being photgraphed could not keep up the grueling schedule involved in producing a stage play or film production.

Hip hop is the AIDS of culture. The ‘gangsta style’ infestation of not just black but white America has caused INCOMPREHENSIBLE damage.

This is one of the prime examples of idiots with millions who have a captive audience. P-dummy must have an IQ of about 85. I just loved seeing these morons descend on Ohio for the last presidential election. If anything, that helped turn people away from Long John than vote for him. Anything that P-Dummy is for is a pretty good indicator of what any sane person should stand against.

Should have told them that cream is a bi-racial version of white.

“Hip hop is the AIDS of culture. The ‘gangsta style’ infestation of not just black but white America has caused INCOMPREHENSIBLE damage.”
I couldn’t have said that any better. I beleive the damage was done long ago…and it’s just creating a bigger hole and further dividing america.

Baldwin, Sarandon, Streisand, Fonda, Clooney, Robbins, Penn, Diddy (LOL), etc, ad nauseum: Shut up, just shut the hell up! It is not that you idiots don’t have the RIGHT to speak, you do; but you rarely ever say anything intelligent. Your anti-American, pro socialists talking points are beyond stale. All you guys do is make tired, cliched movies or produce intellectually challenged music. If you really want to do something for us peons out here in fly-over country, then retire, quit, disappear, vamooose! Go move in with Al Gore or something, start an eco-friendly commune, buy yourselves some funny little light bulbs, get yourelves a copy of the Communist Manifesto, wipe with ONE square if you want to and sell each other carbon credits if you must. But for the love of G-D, just shut the hell up! Now hip-hop on that you ignorant bastards. Oh, and by the way,
yall have a nice day!

Rock stars/celebs/rap-“artists” … is there anything they don’t know?

squirlgal1 on September 5, 2007 at 4:51 pm

Southernmops,
As I said before, I wish they would just move to France; or better yet, one of their third-world idol nations like Cuba, Venezuela, or Zimbabwe. I would be fine with the concept of people who trash everything they benefit from leaving it all behind. No problems here.
BTW – did everyone see that traitor Penn hanging out with Chavez in Caracas? Wow – a commie lowlife and traitor that is living proof the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Let us all remember the fact his father, “director” Leo Penn was an avowed member of the American Communist Party.

If white is the requirement, then PD must be color blind. That sure looks like a black tie he is wearing. On the other hand, I really don’t care how these air heads offend each other; I’m a lot more concerned about how they offend the general public with their on-going idiocy.

Awwwwwww, leave poor P. Dipshit alone. If it weren’t for him getting famous for producing rap shows in his early days in unlawfully overcrowded school auditoriums where his peeps get stomped to death, he’d be out robbing your house. Be’s grateful.

reasoner101:
Your post makes no sense. Not one post on this subject singled out “black people” or suggested “killing” anyone. It is not racist to CRITICIZE black people, actors, rappers or whoever routinely spouts anti-American, socialists, liberal viewpoints. Its called free speech; much like you exercised in dropping your “nazi” and “good white Christian” comments in your response (All “behind a wall of electronic safety” I might add).
Also, what is “perverse” about responding to a post on this blog? The genre of “music” that Sean Combs produces is often perverse, as is some of the tripe Hollywood realeases. Perhaps you meant to call the posters here cowards…so be it, that is your right. A good thesauraus might help. Peace out.
