Think about it, they are just people and yet we go crazy over them (and in some peoples case, worship them)

I don't see what is so great about them, let's see if my opponent can change my opinion

Your turn ninja-boy

Thanks to my opponent for starting this debate. As my opponent (refered to as "he" from now on) said, that they are just normal people, yet we go crazy about them. They are not normal people. They are aliens trying to control the world! Sorry about that. They have money, power, and fame, all things that the average person does not have, but they want to have it. They might think that idolizing celebrities will make them closer to what they cannot be.

Is that really what you think of me as? "He"? That is very rude, i prefer to be called by my full name; Pabloricardojuliosaffordomartinez. (that is not really my name, but it is what you shall address me as)

Wow, for a Ninja, you are NOT wise beyond your years. I expected better from a ninja. Well here i go:

True they have things other people dont, but they are still just people (unless your alien theory is true) Sure they are better looking then your average Joe, but still, they are made from average Joes who make themselves good-looking with plastic surgery. Anyone can be a celebrity really, all you have to be able to do is read lines.

Bottom line, the writers should be more famed than the celebrities, because without them, celebrities would not have jobs because all the do is read lines. Just look at the writers strike, now that they arent writing, celebrities are mad.

Sincerely,
Pabloricardojuliosaffordomartinez

my opponent has forfeited this round. Surely it is because of my bold statement left him awestruck. Now I will just recap what i have said before:

True they have things other people dont, but they are still just people (unless your alien theory is true) Sure they are better looking then your average Joe, but still, they are made from average Joes who make themselves good-looking with plastic surgery. Anyone can be a celebrity really, all you have to be able to do is read lines.

Bottom line, the writers should be more famed than the celebrities, because without them, celebrities would not have jobs because all the do is read lines. Just look at the writers strike, now that they arent writing, celebrities are mad.

This is what i said before and there are plenty of other good looking people in this world. There are also people who can act and sing just as well as celebrities if not better.

What say you now?
