Q: What goes up and takes an age to come down?
A: A celebrity with bankable assets that are never
invested in intellectual property!
The airhead is in fashion. This
is a sad trend for all the feminists and empowered females who seek
self-promotion when its based on our non-tangible assets such as charisma, wit
and intellect. Never before have these qualities been so under threat of extinction
following the popularity of reality shows such as: “The only way is Essex”,
Made in Chelsea” and the latest offering, “Desperate Scousewives”.
The airhead is new celebrity. The
most famous airhead (formerly known as
Jordan) - Katie Price, is the first
contender for the honorary title of “ Queen of One Brain Cell.” This is a woman
who left the jungle with a creature in
tow in the form of the well toned Aussie hunk, Peter Andre. It was delusional
love that was never to last. Lustful ego states were certainly great drivers
and if there’s one thing an airhead seeks out for her life partner is…..

The airhead is now a brand with
market force. Take Amy Childs, star of TOWIE, and you’ll see how far a
hairdresser can go. Its reported that she’ll
earn up to $10 million in modeling contracts, interviews and endorsements.
Childs made her name as cameras followed her ,au naturel in her day job,
sharing her unique philosophies on life and love in finest Estuary English. The
Queen’s English (she will not be amused) has had its vowels stretched as Amy
tells us that her friends are “ well jel” of her new found fame!
English is being touted as an Essex dialect and, as a self-respecting Essex
girl myself, no English was ever spoken that way before! We’ve been “vajazzled” and treated to all manner of
cosmetic enhancements and it’s no surprise that demand for fake tans, false
eyelashes and nails have risen by 40%.
This breed of female airheads
(and there are male versions too) is dangerous. They are making money off the
back of ignorance and vulgarity. This is not a new development. Ever since the
70’s when Mary Whitehouse was complaining about the lowering of standards of
propriety in television, there’s been a serious upturn towards the sharing of
the unwholesome and the unsavoury with wider audiences. Nothing is sacrosanct
as we are invited to view “Embarrassing Bodies” exposing a number of irritating
and unsightly conditions on intimate parts of the body. It may be argued that
programmes such as these are informative but reality TV is just too much
|Be strong in mind and body|
Hopefully there’ll be a big wig
in TV land, with a large hat pin, who can burst the bubble and call time on
these shows. Even the posh versions only prove that money cannot buy you love
or intelligence. The airhead is not how women should be portrayed. We are not
vapid and underdressed morons. We want to see healthy role models on our
screens, women of style and grace – young, old and in-between.
Life is not
about having the best look, wardrobe, boyfriend or car. Life is much bigger
than that and so is your mind. Use it before you lose it and never keep truck
with an airhead unless you’re helping to turn her life around.
