To think that celebs/pop stars should get over it and on with it?

EG: Pink, all her songs are poor me, misfit, life was hard when I was young, I really am pretty and not ugly blah blah blah and Kerry Katona, hard upbringing, married twice, bankrupt etc.

Yes we are have bad stuff happen that can send you reeling for years, but I really do think it is now time they got over it and got on with life instead of harping on about it all the damm time.

Just heard two Pink songs on the radio and caught at bit of Celeb Big Bro last night.

The same could be said for a lot of people though

Most pop stars don't write their songs, they just sing them and people relate to them.

I think you are being unreasonable. Music is art. It isn't the same as whinging to your mates day in day out.

Some people express themselves through paintings, some through poetry, some through books, some through music. Blues, for example, is always all about someone's very hard life, but it's beautiful and moving to listen to.

However, if they are moaning about it all in interviews etc, then yanbu.

There is a difference between telling a story (yours or someone else's) through art/music/other form of expression and moaning.

Yes I get that, but with Pink it's more or less every single song, there are other things that must have influenced her and other stuff she can use to express herself, all this 'poor me' is milked and milked, boring, get over it.
