I hate Cameron Diaz
Just when you thought MTV couldn't get more annoying, they give Cameron Diaz her own show called "Trippin'"


At one point in the show they go to a village made of shit (literally, cow shit) and Diaz calls it "beautiful" and "inspiring." Yeah, just not beautiful and inspiring enough to give up any of the three mansions you own, right you disingenuous bitch?


Of course, having a show in which the hosts prattle on and on about conservation and environmental causes, it makes you wonder how they're able to do it without sounding like giant hypocrites as they fly around on helicopters and jets, all while using enough electricity to power a small city. Simply put: they can't, but that doesn't stop them from trying.

The way they try to avoid this nagging ideological contradiction is by stating: "Trippin' has offset all the pollution created from energy use in making the show, to ensure that it would not contribute to global warming." They supposedly do this by buying "clean air credits." Great idea assholes, so instead of owning up to your shitty ideals and not polluting, you pay someone else not to pollute. Maybe we should all try to pay someone off every time we want to do something that might inconvenience us. I was going to go on a diet, but it's too hard, so I'm going to pay someone else to diet for me. I was going to do a show about community service, but doing the actual work was too inconvenient, so I'm going to pay someone to do it for me. Eat shit you elitist morons.

Yeah, he's crude, but he makes some of the best and clearest points you'll find in cyber space. I doubt the celebrities feel absolutely nothing for the poor of the world but Maddox hits it right on the head with this article. Why do some of the richest people in the world act like they care so much about unfortunate people, and do almost nothing accept tell us about it? Publicity, of course, but you'd think they'd realize the contradiction and not take risks like this. The fact that they don't proves Maddox's point even more: they simply want more money.
