And the Next Celebrity Meltdown Goes To…

Ariel Winter from Modern Family. Before I fully detail this prediction (which is going off at 1-1 right now), it’s important to scour the past for hints of insanity from other meltdowns.


McKayla Maroney’s Downward Spiral

Hard to categorize this as a complete meltdown as there haven’t been any internal, or external, reports of it. I also have exactly 0 inside information on the aforementioned meltdown. However, I’m sensing her state of mind through her Twitter and Instagram posts since she rose to Olympic fame. Let’s watch the 4 year cycle:

Britney Spears Goes Full Cycle (Thankfully)

The most notorious collapse from the queen of pop. She got into all sorts of wild antics like shaving her head, getting hitched in Vegas and then divorced shortly after, marrying her backup dancer Kevin Federline, and stories involving drugs and bizarre parenting. Britney has since returned to prime time with spots on American Idol and making a full revitalization of her life which is wonderful to witness that you can turn it around.

Amanda Bynes Jumps Off Deep End and Lands On Cement

Completely disappearing from the limelight in today’s era, Amanda Bynes had a few weeks of epic proportions that captured the American audience by storm. A beautiful young woman who got her start from All That and grew into a leading lady in films. She started taking crazy pills and never fully recovered.

Lindsey Lohan Fell the Furthest

Lindsay Lohan was on top of the world after Mean Girls (and even sort of with Herbie even though the movie sucked but she looked good doing it). She went from childhood cutie (remember Parent Trap), to goddess like proportion’s in Mean Girls, to cocaine addicted and DUI getting maniac, to skipping court and serving jail time. She never got back to full health which is sad and shows the dangers of being a childhood star.

Ariel Winter is My Prediction For Next Complete Meltdown

Better known as Alex Dunphy from Modern Family, Ariel got press for having big boobs and getting them reduced. You’ll notice that most of these meltdowns stem from having big boobs combined with drugs and alcohol. My prediction of her demise begins with the notice of her provocative Instagram pics and Coachella destination (ala McKayla) for partying.  That graduation pic at the end is the cherry on top because who the hell would wear that to graduation? I’m guessing by the time she turns 21, she’ll have at least one DUI. Mark my words.

Drugs + Media = Ratings


Drugs, Alcohol, and Media

It has occurred to me how sad our society behaves when it comes to drugs and alcohol.  Drugs are addictive.  People don’t act like themselves when they are on drugs.  They are still known as that person, but they essentially have an alter ego.  Sober-self vs Drug-self.   I believe the media does a horrendous job of dealing with drug induced people.  Media coverage is constant during breakdowns and this just exacerbates the problem.  The media may report it as erratic behavior but the reality is a serious drug problem.  Read on.


Lindsay Lohan


No drugs

I think she is a prime example of developing a drug problem and having the media follow her every move which eventually leads to destruction.  This is a great TrueBoob (NSFW) of her physical appearance throughout her career.  She rose to the tippy top of actress stardom after Mean Girls.  The movie had a hot cast, she lead them all, and won America’s heart.  She was the Queen Bee.  Then she was introduced to cocaine? and probably got hooked from there.  I read a quote that said she only tried it 4 or 5 times and I think she was leaving off the hundreds.



She lost her pure figure and ran rampant with irresponsible behavior like drunk driving, jewellery thefts, and tweeting topless pictures.  What did the media do?  They covered every single minute.  She’d go to rehab and then comeback with the paparazzi following every move.  This isn’t a typical lifestyle for anyone.  She has unlimited access and developed a serious addiction because of the people surrounding her, poor decision making, and drug intake.  Read this comment and tell me she was ok:

When Oprah asked what the big difference was this time, Lindsay was quick to say “Not taking Adderall, that’s a big deal.”

Guaranteed she used Adderall a lot.  A real lot.


Ryan Dunn

Ryan Dunn pictures before the accidentRyan Dunn was a professional.  You can be certain he had driven drunk 100x before this incident.  Speeding while intoxicated was second nature to him.  He accrued 23 driving citations throughout his life, 10 were for speeding and careless driving, and three more were for driving with a suspended license.  Among those, 90 percent of which ended in guilty pleas, was a 2005 DUI arrest.   On June 11, 2011 he crashed his Porsche 911 killing his 30 year old passenger as well as himself when they struck a tree.  He was driving 130-140 miles per hour.  He tweeted earlier in the night a picture while at Barnaby’s in West Chester and that he was drinking.  Final details came in that he had a .19 ABV which was twice the legal limit.  A quote by the manager Jim Obrien, “He didn’t seem to be intoxicated at the time he left,” O’Brien said. “Ryan was not a hardcore drinker, at least not when he was here.”  Bullshit.

Can't even tell it was a car.

Can’t even tell it was a car.

The other thing to consider was it more than just alcohol?  Pain killers, coke, or any other number of substances could come into play.  Stories are not created most of the time unless drugs are involved.  A man finishing his work day, having a drink from the bar, and then driving the speed limit home doesn’t make the headlines.  This story never becomes a story if drugs are not involved.  It puts the media in an incredibly awkward place because it is their job to report news, even when it is caused by their favorite, unsaid, form of  news, drugs.


Britney Spears

Baby-One-More-Time-britney-spears-4353597-640-480Britney Spears is a phenomenal example of someone who got it together and who the media stopped covering.  Baby Hit Me One More Time and the school girl outfit was every high school boy’s dream.  She was the girl counterpart to the Backstreet Boys in the late 90’s, early 2000’s.  Her early career hit a pinnacle and a few years later drugs started her downturn.  When a career blows up like this it’s impossible to prepare for it.  A Midwest girl all of a sudden is the most popular person on the planet and the world is at her fingertips.  Drugs get experimented with and next thing you know they become a way of life.  britney-shaving-2This causes irrational behavior like shaving your head and bizarre marriages and the media eats it up and makes money off it.

Who is actually worse in this scenario, the media covering it or the people buying the information?  I’d have to give equal blame to both.  A depressed girl gets caught up in drugs and eventually self destructs.  Does the media back off because drugs are carrying these stories?  I don’t think so.  They only report the behavior.  Major applause though to Britney.  I’m amazed she has been irrelevant for the last few years but I suppose that’s because she became boring and sober.

Artists I Don’t Listen To

I listen to a lot of music. I’ve continued to appreciate music as I’ve gotten older. I can say I know one person, Gusto, who knows more about music than me. Also note that he doesn’t listen to present day music but his knowledge of songs from classic artists and groups is deep. I know way more about the 80’s, a decade he forgets, and current pop music and alternative. I’m currently updating myself on the likes of Bob Dylan, Beatles, Stones and other historical groups. That being said I can’t stand these 5 groups listed below. I can listen to just about anything but I generally swap the channel when these artists play. Some good reasons, others not so good, but I still have my opinion.

The Pretenders

Front woman Chrissie Hynde is the essentially the band. She had a daughter with Ray Davies, lead singer of the Kinks, and that actually makes me like her a little more than I did before I wrote this. The band was formed in 1978 and have hits “I’ll Stand By You”, “Brass in Pocket”, “Back on the Chain Gang”, “My City Was Gone”, and “Tattooed Love Boys.” “I’ll Stand By You” is actually pretty good. The others just rub me the wrong way. I can’t explain it but I just don’t like the music. You’ll notice with some of the other members of the list that the female lead singer has this tomboyish, dyke attitude.

Dave Matthews Band

I don’t dislike Dave Matthews. I don’t even dislike his music. I detest his fans. It all stems back to high school when to be cool you had to like Dave Matthews. I didn’t like the group of people that liked him which made me dislike his music. Under the Table and Dreaming was one of my first 10 albums ever purchased and I really liked it. This was back in 1994 when I was in middle school and before the huge hype surrounded Dave. I was 13 when Crash came out and the followers started piling on the bandwagon. I’ve listened to him here or there but to this day I can’t fully like Dave Matthews without thinking I’m being brainwashed by the crowd.

Janis Joplin

The worst. I hate all her songs. Me and Bobby McGee, Mercedes Benz or Piece of My Heart, I dislike them all equally. Apparently she has a great, unique singing voice but it sounds to me like road kill being run over and screeching before they croak. I’m actually happy she passed on young so she didn’t produce more music people would guarantee play because she’s Janis Joplin. I wonder if she wasn’t dead if she’d be as well liked. He music just doesn’t sound like good music to me.

Britney Spears

Sort of a weird one of the list but I wanted to include her. I listen to Gaga, Katy Perry, Nikki Minaj and other female pop artists and she stands out as the worst to me. I don’t think her early stuff was awful (Baby One More Time, Sometimes, You Drive me Crazy) but after her self titled “Britney”, she should have stopped making music. The auto tune is too much now. Her and Kesha are in the same boat of no talent, carried by their producers, please stop making music club. Sure she’s an icon but I won’t listen to her music.

Pat Benetar

Saving the worst for last. I actually don’t dislike her more than Janis but the songs “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”, “Heartbreaker” and “Love is a Battlefield” are so overplayed that I never want to hear them again as long as I live. I think the fact that these songs are played on a daily basis all over the US is what drives me mad. They are never going away. They just keep eating at you until you love to hate them.
