This is getting awkward isn’t it?
Me over here with my 17 (and counting) letters and you over there with your tv show and your recording label and your five million Twitter followers and your mansion…not answering. any. of my letters.
I’m starting to feel like one of those weirdos who rallies together thousands of Facebook Fans in a “Help Get Blank On The Ellen Show” campaign. I think it’s sad when people throw themselves at the feet of celebrities…do they really even know the celebrities they’re worshiping? Do they really care about who these celebrities are or are they just using them to further their own non-existent careers?
I mean really…if you have 150,000 Facebook users “liking” your band well enough to support your effort to get on The Ellen Show…then why not throw yourself a concert…charge them each five bucks.
Boom you’re rich.
And yet still, they carry on with their campaigns and compete with all the other millions of people who want to be on your show. It’s ridiculous.
And yet I feel like certain people might think I’m doing something similar, what with my rock video and my persistent letters and my bathroom concerts and what not. This all may come across as some kind of desperate plea to get on your show, but that is SO not the case. I realize I may have once or twice mentioned that I wanted to be the first mommy blogger ever on your show. But I was joking.
It’s called sarcasm.
Don’t get me wrong, if you wanted me on your show I wouldn’t disrespect you by turning you down, but it’s not the driving force behind my letter writing. I am not just ANOTHER crazed stalkerish fan. I don’t do that.
I take my time. I pour out my heart. I open my soul. I foster helpless and hurting rescue dogs. I support breast cancer. I mean there is so much more here than sinking to the level of begging that I see coming from other people.
In fact, I think this would be a really great topic for one of your upcoming shows Ellen! You could talk about how when you’re famous it seems like everybody just wants to jump on that train and use your status to further their own careers.
…And I could come on and talk about how wrong that is and how, as your pen-pal, I can’t believe people would stoop to such levels.
I could talk about our letters and how I’ve always been in agreement with you on this issue.
We could roll my site URL across the bottom of the screen as a resource for a place people can visit throughout the show to talk about their feelings on the subject.
I think between the two of us we could really send a message loud and clear to those weirdos out there who insist on using celebrities as stepping stones. Is this not brilliant?
I’m so glad we’re friends Ellen.
