"You´re a monkey, Derek! Dance, monkey…” - Zoolander
Last night I went to a fan screening of the new movie Need for Speed* featuring a Q&A with the star of the movie Aaron Paul. From the moment Aaron Paul introduced the movie and was forced by the audience to yell “Yeah, Bitch” his signature catchphrase from Breaking Bad I realized I felt super dirty. This feeling bubbled up more as fans shouted the saying during the screening of the movie and it reached an apex as a fan asked the following question “Why didn’t you say Bitch in the movie?”
*Twitter Review: Crazy action, super funny, frustratingly obvious/implausible.
It was at this moment I started to feel bad** for Aaron Paul and realized I don’t understand the infatuation we have with celebrities.
** Not too bad, he’s young, rich and full of sugar!
Why do grown woman talk about their “real love” for Justin Timberlake?
Why do we think it’s ok to interrupt a celebrity when he’s taking his kids to school?
Or when she’s waiting for a friend at a comedy show?
As a society most of us just lack common human decency when we see celebrities. It is more important to us that we get 20 likes on the picture we post to Facebook than respecting a person’s space.
Personally one of my favorite parts of living in NYC is running into celebrities on the streets. Anthony Bourdain, Natasha Lyonne, Tyson Chandler & that A-hole reporter from Season 5 of The Wire are proud feathers in my cap. But I always do my best to avoid interrupting their life because I think about how annoyed I’d be if someone stopped me on the street for a picture***
***Not so fast my friend! I’m not perfect, Lee Corso can attest to that.
But back to Aaron Paul, I know that this Q&A was part of his of job (a carefully designed marketing activity designed to drive positive word of mouth). I mean he was literally inviting people to come****. But for some reason as he left the screening with multiple theater employees in tow as body guards I just felt sadness for him.
****Full disclosure I went to this event mostly to see him in person and contemplated asking some of the silly questions others asked so I am truly no better than people I railed against.
In the end I guess I just expected more from people. I was hoping for a more detailed discussion about the movie’s successes and short comings but all I got was half hearted “Yeah, Bitch!”

Apartment search website Rentenna just came out with its NYC Celebrity Star Map for 2014.
The updated list took into account last year’s moves and break-ups, and added roughly 50 celeb addresses to the list.
Unsurprisingly, downtown neighborhoods like SoHo, Greenwich Village, TriBeCa, and the West Village were well-represented, as was the Upper West Side, with more than 80 celebrities living in the area. Brooklyn also houses its fair share of celebrities.
Just when you thought your one-sided relationship with her couldn’t get any better, Beyoncé wrote a feminist essay entitled, “Gender Equality is a Myth.” If this makes you want to go back to school and write about the movement that will ultimately be known as Beyoncism, “the interdisciplinary study of how to make feminism the coolest thing ever,” you are not alone.
