Attention-Seeking

I’ve read two things today which have made me shake my head in disgust. Was there ever a time when somebody was famous for having a skill or talent, and didn’t have to do anything else to seek attention?

Firstly, Lady Gaga apparently ate David Letterman’s notes while being interviewed by him.

Secondly, Justin Timberlake groped Mila Kunis on stage “platonically”.

These sorts of stunts make me despair of celebrity. These things are obviously only done to make people talk about the people involved. Controversy, publicity, attention. Why do we not expect a level of professionalism from these so-called professionals? In any other workplace, those acts would probably get you counselled or fired!
