Sometimes when you’re reading through celebrity news (you know, cause it’s your job), you come across a story that interests you. For example, you’ll be on contactmusic.com and see a headline that reads, “Lil Wayne‘s Attourney Requests Trial Postponement,” and you’re like, “Lil Wayne! What are you up to THIS time!?” And you fully intend on reading what you assume will be an interesting story. But then you click on link and you get so distracted by the photograph the website chose to illustrate the article that you will never actually get to reading the article.
Let me have a word with this website for a minute.
Contactmusic.com, you are a good website. You’re thorough and I’m pretty sure you’re British. But why? Why on earth would you fail to use an actual picture of Lil Wayne and instead post a picture of a misguided Pinkberry employee with a tattoo of Lil Wayne. And furthermore, why would you then choose to caption the photograph simply as “Lil Wayne” instead of something more accurate like “Not Lil Wayne?” Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s awesome. If I were writing something about Lil Wayne, I might even use this picture with this caption. But let’s face it. I’m not you and you’re not me. We’re not us. I write silly things, and you write serious things. Granted, the serious things you write are about silly people, but they are serious nonetheless. I mean, clearly you get a pass because this is a very funny thing that you’ve done, but I need you to know that it is very weird that you’ve done it.
