02 Jul Beniffer V2 is OVER and Why It Supposedly Matters
JUAN SAYS: Ang mga Pinoy nga naman, kahit hindi natin ka close or kakilala ang tao, napakahilig natin i-close, especially when it’s news involving a celebrity or better yet, two huge celebrities. Nakakaloka na! Our feeds were filled with “walang forever”, “disappointed” commentary about the end of Jen and Ben. Personally, we saw it coming and while we’re huge fans of Jennifer Garner, we couldn’t help but shake our heads in disbelief and shout a giant “so what?” Divorces, unfortunately, are a dime a dozen. Nangyayari yan sa kapitbahay mo, sa tindera mo sa grocery, sa manong guard mo, at sa traffic aid. They don’t call it divorce (hiwalay na kami ni junjun, andoon na siya sa mama niya) but the premise is the same. (To read full story, click here.)
As Time mentioned in their article, we’re affected because they’re celebrities. We’re led to believe that they’re perfect people, and if their perfection can’t uphold the idea we have of what life should be, they’ve failed. The thing is, they may have asked for the spotlight but they didn’t ask to be made as idols. Tao din sila and dear pabebes on the Internet, stop saying there’s no hope for all relationships just because theirs didn’t work out. Nakakainit ng ulo ang shallowness niyo please develop a brain and that’s all we can say on that matter: relationships take work at hindi basehan ang fairytale Hollywood stories dito. Sarap niyo sakalin.
