If you follow celebrity gossip (and you fucking know you do, don't lie), you know that Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian
have been in a bit of a word battle (via Twitter and interviews, natch) and, believe it or not, Kim has come out actually looking like the smarter and all around better person (and I'm not just saying that because of my personal love for her). I take pretty massive issue with actors
) who feel the need to make negative, disparaging and disgusting statements about reality TV stars (since when is it cool to call someone "a fucking idiot"? Unless you're me, of course). Here's why: what the fuck do these actors think they're doing that makes them so much fucking better than KiKi (that's what Mason and I
call Kim K.)? They fucking play pretend and some of them (the ones you hear about) get grossly overpaid for it. Do they really fucking believe that KiKi just fucks around all day doing "stupid" shit and getting her nails done and is able to maintain what's quickly becoming a fucking empire? Um, I doubt it, bitches. And is what these actors do really so fucking beneficial to society? My main point is that fucking actors have egos the size of the fucking universe and it makes me want to do violence against them when they A) consider themselves in a position to talk shit about pretty much anyone (again, my
job) and B) think so highly of what they do (again, they play fucking pretend
) that they never stop to think, "Oh yeah, I guess I'm pretty much not doing anything real
and/or impactful and it's pretty badass that I'm getting paid to do it. I should be cool with that and be nice to my peers." Yes, KiKi is your peer, Jon Hamm, fucking deal with that.
And that is a really long winded introduction to this video which made me cry. You may already know (if you are a regular Reader, you do) that I am obsessed with Hillary Clinton (as well as KiKi - the irony, I know). This video of Meryl Streep introducing Hillary at the Women In The World Conference is pretty fucking stunning. I don't want to name any favorite parts, because I kind of love it all equally. But I do particularly dig the fact that Meryl humbly recognizes that she is an actor and Hillary is "the real deal". This is exactly what I'm talking about! Meryl is awesome. I salute her (and KiKi).
