The event of "Swiddleston," which is a portmanteau of the new couple Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston is just another example of our society's excessive interest in celebrity culture. Celebrity couples do not make for interesting news: real concerns such as political events should take newsroom priority over petty gossip.
It's a really slow news day when a kiss -- any kiss -- makes headlines. The only reason such photos drive traffic and ad dollars is that one of the people in the photo is famous. Famous people eat, smoke and drink, too, as well as work in the yard and grocery shop. Do we have to see photos of them doing it?
We should stop caring about the personal lives of actors and actresses. For the life of me I cannot understand why people give a hoot about what actors or actresses are doing, who they are dating, what they are buying, or anything about their lives. Don't they have better things to do then worry about all that stuff?
It is nobodies business in the general public who Taylor Swift is or is not kissing. Intimate moments that she shares with those in her social circle should not be of any concern to anyone who does not know her personally. People who sing and act should be afforded a personal life and shouldn't be expected to sacrifice it simply because of their creative professions.
