Is it me, or are celebrity egos blowing out of control? The latest crazy celeb tantrum I heard was that Lisa Marie Presley is planning to sue a UK gossip rag called Daily Mail for calling her fat.
What the fuck?
Since when is a fat jab in the tabloid press grounds for a lawsuit? I understand that papers can be liable for libel for inaccurate claims of drug use or criminal activity. But for calling Elvis’s daughter a fatty? You’d think that came with the territory.
If Presley is going to start suing Daily Mail, she’s going to have to make one hell of a list. Google the terms “Lisa Marie Presley” and “fat,” and you’ll find more than a quarter million hits… almost as many fat cells as you’ll find in her pregnant butt.
I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked. This is the woman who married Michael Jackson, after all. No one ever accused her of being brilliant… or even marginally smart… or even more intelligent than your average golden retriever.
Still, I guess you can sue over anything in this day and age, even for observations about girth.
In fact, watch out Film School Rejects. I’m in touch with my lawyer as we speak, and I’m getting ready to sue you for making “Fat Guys at the Movies” your official podcast.
Are you saying I’m fat???
