Is she the martyr for a cause – The American Dream??

Posted in America, Reality TV by clash on February 14, 2007

“She’s been the underdog. She’s been besieged … and she’s been trying her best and nobody should have to endure what she’s endured.” Yes ofcourse in a nation; where every attempt to be rich and famous is squared to a connotation – “the american dream”, Anna Nicole Smith is no stranger. A small town belle disillusioned by the glitz and glamour, a stripper and one of those who were ready to sell out anything for being rich and known – She was Anna Nicole Smith. She is just another drug addicted whore, used and thrown by a ruthless world. She tried hanging on to the bandwagon by marrying a dying oil baron, for she hardly knew – money does not come easy. If she were to be in India, she would have been a queer neighbourhood promiscous aunty (Excuse me! This is not a wayward generalization!!) meddling in a court case for money with a serious drug addiction problem ( With a series of legal and illegal marriages!!), No one would have acknowleged any kind of realtionship with her . West in that matter is very nice and numerous friends and ex-husbands were availabale for whining and commenting.

I never understood the importance of such a lady. Larry King ( in CNN, seems like the old man had “some” real interest in her.) was interviewing a series of friends, relatives and husbands, who were to emphasize the fact, how naive she was. But i never could hear anything about the way she chose to lead her life, she was a celebrity, acted in reality TV, had innumerable husbands, two kids – one dead and the other which has a parental dispute.

Is she the martyr for a cause – The American Dream??

This article provides an insight :
What is Anna Nicole smith famous for?

An exciting view point; a must read.

    Actually, its not just Nirmal Shekarish. Rohit Brijnath also has to be included. It all started about five months ago when I saw a write-up about greatness being assigned to anyone who is a bit good at their sport. Till then, I wudnt even look at the left side of the sports page of THE HINDU. A month later, I saw a tribute to Schumacher before his last F1 race. A week later, an article comparing Schumi, Woods and Federer was written. It has mainly been about Federer ever since. The comments made by these writers came to my mind while studying ‘nomenclature of organic compounds’ if you understand what I mean.


    Thats when I thought of writing about Federer. Afterwards, I thought of getting it published in the school magazine as well. That is the story behind the article. So you can say that the effect of these writers is there. Anyway, its an absolute pleasure that people have noticed the connection with THE HINDU.

    Don’t you think, even Indians are being dragged into this “money mindedness”, “reality tv culture” and our media is doing the best to promote it?

    Check any mainstream media site : for shilpa shetty, srk and kbc, ash+abhi wedding…and u will be surprised!!!

    Indian is in the queue! More anna nicole smiths will be born, bred nourished, used and then thrown away like an used soft tissue!!!

    We Americans are enthralled with Spectacle, celebrity, gossip and all manner of tragedy. We arent allowed to talk about religion or politics so it gives workers something to chat about in the break room.

    There was, and is, no society that didn’t admire and looked up to the rich and famous. It’s more American for the simple reason that it’s a self-made nation. Of outcasts of the English, without a blue-bloodline to be proud of. It was the need of the nation to have a dream, to have people as enigmatic as the Royal ones in Wales, and what they have is the only possible one.

    It’s not ‘their’ dream anymore, it’s what ‘should’ be dreamt. And the world is trying to live up to that dream. In another 10 years, She won’t be a pathetic figure as you have described, in India either. That’s how Jassica Lall got her justice. We have seen Ambanis and Mittals becoming idols of worship in less than half a decade.

    Let me add one of my all-time fav motivational lines: Even if you win a ratrace, you will still end up as a rat ๐Ÿ™‚ Motivational? Yeah, very.

    Her death received way more coverage than the Iraq war, the weeks following her death.

    There was always sadness around her.

    am still surprised at the coverage CNN is giving for her post death courtroom scuffles..And those guys who should be way down in the morality chart bargaining like anything over her body..disgusting to see people losing all sense of humanity..
