Some things about gossip I just don't get. I do get the fact that Miley Cyrus is popular and that the Jonas Brothers are popular. I don't have a problem with them being popular, because there will always be boy bands and tweeners and their fans.
What I don't get is why by my count at least 20 websites, tabloids and blogs have spent the time to talk about Miley Cyrus and her comments about her two year relationship with Nick Jonas. The relationship ended last year when she was 14 which means it started when she was 12.
Unless she was doing crack with him in a Denny's parking lot while sitting in a car he stole from his neighbor at gun point, I really don't care about the love lives of 12 year olds. The way this is being treated is as if Miley has come down the mountains with tablets.
Are we that concerned about celebrity that we want to analyze the love lives of kids before they are even teenagers? I'm sure their relationship was just like any other teenage relationship. They talked on the phone or texted or IM'D 24/7 and said OMG and I love you a lot and kept asking each other questions in some type of hieroglyphic code that no one over the age of 16 understands.
They laughed and giggled and she took a bunch of photos of herself in sex 14 year old poses. Whoo hoo. I don't have a television in front of me, but I swear it would not surprise me in the least if one of the 24 hour channels was running quotes from the article on their crawl at the bottom. How is this news? Are hordes of 13 year old kids, reading every word repeatedly trying to get a glimpse into what a relationship with Nick or Miley is like and what they can expect when they become their next love? I need a drink.
