Girls like Ariana Grande are cute and all, but I can't understand getting sexually aroused by such youth. She, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez all seemed to have their growth stunted at 16 cuteness. They didn't mature into sexy women like they could have.

Nobody is asking you to be sympathetic or have pity.

I just asked why their ruined lives bring you joy.

There isn't anything sexy or erotic about any of the girls mentioned in this thread, at any point in their lives. You might as well be having sex with a life-size doll.

That's not a comment on their figure. They're just not sexy. Sexiness is about more than having a skinny little white girl figure that you can throw around.

What happened to the women who are deeply sexy? I see them on the street all the time but they're nowhere to be found in Hollywood. I really can't think of one. Marion Cotillard is sexier than any American actress or celebrity I can think of, even though she's pushing 40.

The pics in the OP are her without makeup.

All your girlfriends and exes all look like that without makeup. At least 99% of them do...

Because they are weak individuals. And they profit from other weak individuals who buy magazines with their pictures in them trying to be like them. It's a sad state of affairs.

Ok, so in your opinion every person is responsible for their own problems. Thats fine. But does it please you to see random girls in your neighborhood with personal problems, poor family life/guidance, make bad decisions, and have their lives spiral into misery? If it does thats fine at least ur consistent.


You inly want to see a young teenage girls life ruined if shes famous? Makes no sense and you should be embarrassed of yourself for trying to be cool with your "haha i kick celebrities while theyre down cuz other people think its cool and funny" shtick.

If you like seeing miserable people, good on you. Just admit it tho. If you think these young tween idols get too much attention, I agree. Thats kind of a social broad issue tho, shouldnt be a personal thing. If you are glad lohan and bynes etc were surrounded by poor influences before they were old enough to know better, given bad advice, taken advantage of, introduced to drugs, and now are suffering real mental issues, you should probably take up a hobby or get out the house. Sounds like u have some issues of ur own if ur gettin a kick outta that.

Aren't you profiting, in terms of enjoyment, from their sadness?

They're not sad though. They clearly think nothing is wrong with them otherwise they would be seeking treatment. If they were sad and depressed, then I would have pity and would wish them a speedy recovery into their previous normalcy, but these are crackheads acting like crackheads and thinking that nothing is wrong with them. What I love is the trainwreck that follows until one day, hopefully, they can recover. In all seriousness, if you cannot control your life because you abuse your body, then I have no sympathy for you. Coddling and wishing them well isn't going to solve it. These people are given plenty of chances in life and in many cases are given millions of dollars and yet they manage to screw it all up.

When you can admit that you have a problem, and if you seek out proper counsel, then I can respect you. I hope you guys can see where I'm coming from.

well first of all your feeling of amusement or hate or whatever it is you feel toward them is partly what fans the flames. these girls often become famous because of the teeny boppers, but then stay famous because they become americas favorite targets. lindsay lohan doesnt do disney movies anymore. shes only still being covered in the news because so many people are rooting against her. lets face it, if you get enjoyment from picking on 'celebrities', not like joking about the dress they wore on the red carpet, but the way 20-something year old girls are seeing their lives ruined, you are no different than a kid who bullies another kid at school. you have the same motivation, you like seeing someone squirm and struggle. you can make up whatever justification you want why 'no, its different when i do it' but its just a cop out.

like i said, nobodys sayin u have to respect them or have sympathy. but you said it amuses you to see their lives crumble. some of these girls were given a whole bunch way too fast, had to transition into adulthood in the public eye, which can be very hard especially for young girls, and had family or social circles that were more opportunistic than supportive. obviously they fell in with the wrong crowds, made mistakes, etc. and are going through some emotional and personal struggles right now. i mean why even care at all? i dont root for or against them, they are people i dont know who dont even have productive careers in entertainment right now. why pay attention? thats what drives the coverage, which helps to exacerbate these peoples problems. and i especially dont see why it would entertain you to see them slowly go crazy from being overwhelmed by what was put on their plate at 15 years old or whatever and how far they've fallen.

As far as the whole celebrity thing, well, I feel sympathy for Amanda Bynes on some level because I think it's obvious that she's mentally ill and hasn't gotten the help she clearly needs. But Lindsey Lohan? I don't feel any sympathy because she continues to get arrested and get special treatment even with priors that none of us could dream of getting, and blows off simple things like community service. She strikes me as someone who thinks the law doesn't apply to them, and you know what? It seems she's right.

I don't know any of these people so I don't wish any bad things to happen to them, but if celebrities like Lindsey Lohan continue to act like the laws we all have to follow don't apply to them, and one judge finally treats them like everyone else, then they'll get what they deserve.

Perfection

Uh, 14 is REALLY young. That's a kid. 19 year olds should not be attracted to 14 year olds. At that point, the difference can't be referred to as "only 5 years" when you're a legal adult and she's barely a teenager. And honestly, a 25 year old man whose idea of perfection is a 16 year old girl is creepy.
