Why do women care about this crap?

I just ran to the bike shop to remove the cranks/bb from the frame in my sig. On my way home i hear on the radio that Heath Ledger is dead. I say "Hmm, that sucks" and carry on.

When i return home i have 4 IM's, all from women all sent within 15 mins of each other:

"OMG HEATH LEDGER IS DEAD!"
"Did you hear?! Heath Ledger died!"
"You see heath ledger died?"
"Dude...heath ledger is dead"

I had already forgotten when i got home...why do you ladies surround yourself with this Hollywood stuff on a daily basis?

E!
US weekly
People
etc...

what is the infatuation?

Just as I opened this thread my cell phone rings. A frind of mine announces the fact that Heath Ledger has been found dead. I am sorry that he is dead but who is Heath Ledger says I. Well, after an explanation I realize who it is. Women really do have a somewhat different idea as to what is important. Ehhh!

Well, none of my female relatives have bothered me with this trivia. Perhaps it is just the women of your family?

Yeah - everyone reacted in shock with THAT one, right?

Eh - I liked the guy. He was a talented actor. I caught "10 things I hate about you" and thought, for a teen movie it was smart (its a remake of taming of the shrew) and well acted. He made that movie. He took on unusual roles, to say the least. I was really stoked when I heard he was cast as the Joker in the new Batman movie. He was one of the better "younger" actors coming up I thought. Not all flash...

I didn't get all the hoopla for her, either. In fact, that story eclipsed lots of major new stories. In that light, it's not just those interested in the inconsequential fluff, but the media outlets who pander to it, too.

He played Mel Gibson's oldest son in 'The Patriot". He was part of the couple in Broke Back Mountain. He had a child with the woman that played his wife in BBM. They split in Sept. It is sad - no matter what the cause.

But locally, 3 people kidnapped a 94 year old man from his home, tortured and killed him then cut off his hand. That is also sad.
