Celebrity Moms: Our New Faux Heroes



I am tired of seeing these new-mom celebrities and their newborns on the covers of magazine recycling the same ol tired retort about how motherhood 'changed their life', how motherhood is so 'wonderful', or how courageous or honorable these mags make it seem like. Like we're suppose to worship them cause they gave birth. It is just so played. And every month, its a new celebrity mom, in a glammed out photo spread cuddling her lil bald-headed, wrinkled offspring. They are heroes or saviors or saints cause they had a child.

Not to mention these people are millionaires and can hire all the help they need. I bet you motherhood is pretty sweet when you can hire the best help while you review your latest script, record your next album, plan your world tour and get in 2 hours daily with your personal trainer. I feel like the mags want us to admire them and their faux strength.

Who the hell cares?

I'd have more admiration for a real mom, with a real job raising healthy kids in real life. That takes strength, guts, determination and a strong head on your shoulders.
And I think this OK spread on Jamie Lynn Spears sets a bad example for teenage pregnancies.

I hate how those tabloid rags glamourize motherhood. It's stressful and very diffcult for those without a supportive spouse, lots of money, and multiple nannys.

Paris Bennet from American idol is knocked up to.

The best part is that these young courageous moms, these pillars of strength, these heroes of modern day Americana....all get paid to provide their pics to these mags. Beautiful.
