Looking up - Hero worship

Except for the 5 minutes I spend in the waiting room of my doctor's office, I don't really pay attention to much in the way of celebrity news show or magazines.  When horrible stories come out about them, I often feel a bit bad for the celebrities because they don't often have a chance for people to actually get to know who they really are and tabloid writers write whatever will sell the most magazines.

Recently, though, I've started looking up to three celebrities.  This may have even developed into a bit of a girl crush.

It all started when I started watching reruns of "The Ghost Whisperer" on Ion television.  Then my obsession with Jennifer Love Hewitt hit an all time high when I saw a video of her talking about being "vejazzled" on Lopez Tonight.  It was hilarious and she's just so darned cute when she talks about it.  If you haven't seen the video, you really MUST!  It may be the best 5 minutes of your week.  Also, thanks to my bloggy friend Joan for introducing the video to me.

Then I was flipping through the TV channels and saw a bit of an interview with Jewel on CMT (Country Music Television).  Now I know a lot of people kind of rag on her about her teeth because they are a bit jagged, but I've always been a big fan of her music.  Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for folk music song by a chick with her guitar.

In the interview, she was talking up her new country album that's set to be released in June.  It's called "Sweet and Wild", which she said she thinks fits her perfectly.  She's known for her sweet songs and poetry that she loves writing, but she grew up on a ranch and loves riding horses and motorcycles.  The songs and poetry are her sweet side and the motorcycles are her wild side.  I totally related to this!  I definitely love most all things pink and girly, but if you tried to take away my motorcycle, I'd have to punch your lights out.  I'm just sayin'.

Finally, on Saturday, Troy and I went to see "The Bounty Hunter" starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler (um, ladies?  Can I get a "hell yeah!"?.....I digress.)  I must say, for having just turned 41 this year, Miss Aniston looks amazing!  Her skin and hair are gorgeous even when she takes an accidental dip in a pond.  Her figure is absolutely flawless and I think it may actually be a crime to have teeth that white.  The more I watched her, the more I remembered WHY it is that I don't frequently read all those newstand magazines.  How could I possibly not think of myself as a mutant blob of fat when faced with her physical perfection?  It's no wonder young (and old) girls get such complexes about their bodies.

So this looking up to these amazing stars has given me a goal.  If I could have the perky, cute, fun wit and attitude of Jennifer Love Hewitt and the adventurous/sentimental spirit of Jewel combined into the body of Jennifer Aniston, I could rule the world!  So if you come to my house or ride in my car with me and see pictures of these lovely ladies, it isn't because I've considered batting for the other team sexually.  The pictures are just there to remind me exactly who it is I want to become.

Hey Heather - Thanks for the shout out! I love Jewel's teeth - gives her a certain edge - and I agree with you re; JLH - she is just adorable! But don't we all just wanna hang out with Jennifer Aniston - a real girls girl.
