Paris, Kobe and Iraq

The Lakers are back in the playoffs on the back of Kobe Bryant. According to the AP, Paris Hilton was at the game against the Suns today, wearing the Kobester’s “Number 8” and drawing boos from the crowd. Over at the Lakers Ground fan website, drew4lakers had this comment:

When you get a close look at a lot of the Hollywood crew, they’re nothing special.

It’s all hype.

Every time they keep trying to sell me on why someone is so special, I just don’t get it.

It stood out to me a lot more when I was in Iraq looking at these celebrity mags – and so many of them just looked weird.

As for me looking at those celebrity mags — hey, we didn’t have much to choose from.
