Backlash

Has Hollywood finally grasped that people are getting tired of the antics of celebrity girls gone wild? It sounds too good to be true, but according to this article, at least, there may be hope.

Thanks for the link: definitely a hopeful trend. The saddest of it was the commentator who said it must be "boring" to be famous and so perfect. What kind of miserable life does he have, I wonder?

Maybe we'll luck out, and the effect will trickle-down to girls' toys, and this, http://www.thebratzfilm.com/, will be cancelled. We could only hope.

It is disgraceful how some young celebrities treat themselves and their bodies all in attempts to get attention. Where are these children’s parents?

One can only hope and pray that this new group of actors will also not succumb to the pressures of constantly being in the spot light. At least Emma Roberts has a wonderful role model to look up to – Julia.

I'd say the wonderful role model Emma Roberts has is her mom, who stuck around to raise her (unlike her dad, Julia's brother), and keeps her level-headed and down-to-earth:
"But she also has a mom (her parents split when she was a baby, and her mother has primary custody) who wouldn't buy her a car for her 16th birthday, insists on handwritten thank-you notes and grounds her regularly. In fact, Emma got grounded -- for talking back, as usual -- just the week before the publicity tour. It was a 21st-century version of grounding: no iPod, no cellphone and no computer access for four days. When Cunningham returned her electronic toys a day early for good behavior, Emma cried with happiness. ...
No one knows what Emma will be like at 18, 19, 20. (Though it might be telling that both she and her mother talk of her commitment to attend college.) But right now she's this engaging mix of gushing teenage girl and seasoned professional."
