Aging Celebrities Are SO Depressing

6th April 2011

A few depressing facts you may or may not know:

1. Everyone will eventually get OLD.

2. Seeing other people age is just another reminder that you TOO are getting old.

3. Aging sucks.

4. And finally, celebrities only remind us of how much aging sucks.

Seriously, how often have you seen some celebrity, that you crushed on during your YOUTH, only to find out that they are now OLD. Total Bummer.

Join me in this shocking, and somewhat depressing walk down old people’s lane.

JOHN TAYLOR from Duran Duran is now 51. FIFTY freakin’ ONE!! Oh those feathery, highlighted bangs. Sigh.

DUCKIE!! 46 freakin’ years old. Why Duckie, why?

Et tu Mike Bender? 50!!! You can’t be 50! Fingerless gloves and grungy clothes do not a hot 50 year old make.

In fact, I did some very scientific IMDB research, and it kind of seems like most of the lovely young things from our favorite 80’s flicks – Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Breakfast Club – are all at least 50.

It’s just not cool, this aging thing.

This is not right.

At least we still have The Geek.

At a young 43, he’s still in my good books. For now.

So, I would love to hear what celebrity has shocked you recently, with their oldness. Do tell.

Dear John, I use to salivate over you. Love my teen aged, delusional self. xoxo

10th March 2010

Today, I was thinking about back in the day, when I was young and all about cute boys and movie stars. I was sleeping in a bedroom plastered with posters of all the heartthrobs of the moment. There were SO many that were perfect to stare at – too many to list. But there was one that I was particularly fond of (read: obsessed with). I adored Duran Duran back then – I remember buying up all the teen magazines, and cutting out their pics, so I could plaster them all over the wall. And my absolute favorite?

John Taylor from Duran Duran

He was it for me back then, when I was a delusional 15 year old. I had every album, knew every word, although none of that really mattered. All I cared about was that he was super cute, and he wore eyeliner – VERY HOT!

What else matters when you’re a teenager? Nothing.

I looked it up today and I can’t believe it but John Taylor is going to be 50 this year. 50! I’m not going to lie – that is beyond depressing. When your hearthrob ages, it only means one thing – you are getting old.

Not fun.

So fess up – who was your favorite heartthrob back in the day?

(Side Note: Sometimes it’s okay to write fluff – this is one of those times. Forgive me.)
