Excuse me, but why, and I say this with all humility, honesty and curiosity, but why does anyone give a f*ck why Solange Knowles attacked Jay-Z in an elevator?

Why is this news?  Are we all so desperately boring, bored or brain dead that we actually wonder about this stuff?

Who gives a f*ck.  Oops.  Getting repetitive.  Like my television news program.

But really.....who gives a f*ck why:

1.  A spoiled power pair of celebrities consciously uncouples.  Why don't they unconsciously drop f*cking dead?  Do they honestly believe by labeling it in emotionally-correct new term, they are somehow more special than any other couple deciding they've seen enough of each other's souls to last them through eternity and the faster the divorce papers are filed, the f*cking better?

2.  A billionaire power couple's relative swats and kicks at him in an elevator.  So what.  They should have been at a few family picnics I've attended in my life.  This is normal behavior for a lot of families, even families who own their own formal wear.  What's all the speculation and why does anyone care? 

Americans have an unnatural obsession with power, money and celebrity.  It's redundant.  I don't want the fabulous life that gets one of my family members swinging at me in an elevator so I become grist for the "got no life" mill.

I don't want to decide who gets the London townhouse and who gets the "cottage" in the Hamptons.

I don't want to read about these people, be bombarded with their fabulous air brushed images or be exposed to their neurotic behaviors, ridiculous stretches of the English language, hear about their fabulous lifestyles and the money they spend on jewelry.  These people are no happier than anyone else, and we only find them interesting because they have so much money.....for all the good it does them.

In short, Americans need to find something worthwhile to be concerned with; like air quality, global warming, poverty, clean water, anything.  They need to come to some meaningful realization;  anything but BeyoncĂ©, Jay-Z and Solange in an elevator and a videotape that immortalizes that which should just be so much bull$hit in an otherwise dull day.
