My Blog__ not Hate-crushing on megan fox

September 23, 2009 | By

I first noticed Megan Fox when she played the bitchy prom queen in that cheesy Lohan flick Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. I paid little attention to her because her character was secondary and at that point she was a surf board with nothing to sneeze at but an irritatingly high-pitched voice.

Fast forward a few years and she's gained seven cup sizes and a swirl of media attention. Megan Fox. Little Miss Transformers, Little Miss Jennifer's Body, Little Miss Say-Anything in every publication ever written about her.

At first, I liked Megan Fox. I thought she was funny in the way that Pam Anderson is funny. Pam Anderson equates herself to a walking cartoon, she knows what she is and can critically assess this as she and her iconic image wander through the world. I thought Megan Fox was as perceptive as Pam. After reading a handful of quotes by the actress, I realize now that she is not. But guess what? I still kinda like her.

People love to hate on Megan Fox because she says meaningless things and talks about nothing but herself. Doye. Why would she talk about anything else when, according to Hollywood, she is the best thing going? I mean she should stick with the subject she knows, right?

Megan Fox annoys most people. Like this writer who is straight-up sick of the Fox hype. However, he admits to enjoying her acting. Isn't that what she is here for? Acting?

It is easy to find Megan's boastful, aloof, self-obsessed attitude annoying and empty because it reminds us of one person we all know so well. You know the type. The mean girl. The girl who got head cheerleader. The girl who always had a new pair of designer boots. The girl who stole your gym strip for fun. The girl who made out with chicks for male attention and succeed. She's the most unforgivable girl because she represents everything that is wrong with attraction. She is a goddess, but she's a dumbass. She is hilarious, but she can't name the continents. Why do people like this get away with it? She makes the world seem unfair.

These are all the reason I can handle Megan Fox. I have figured her out. She doesn't bother me because she doesn't matter. Her job is acting and she is doing a pretty okay job. She isn't here to impress us with her political jargon or make the world a better place. So, she can amuse me with her typical retardations about her alleged bisexuality ("I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man") or her metaphors about the acting world ("When you think about it [actors are] kind of prostitutes. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone…It’s really kind of gross"). Fuck it. Talk on Fox. It's all just one big vat of verbal diarrhea. (Don't worry, I won't flush.)

I recently read this article about hate crushing. Apparently, hate-crushing is something that women do. A hate-crush occurs when one becomes so irritated by a person that they verge on obsession. According to the article, women, more so than men, tend to develop hate-crushes because physiologically women have a deeper limbic system in the brain which makes them feel emotion very intensely. (I don't believe this by the way, I think it's bullshit.)

I think the world has one big giant "hate-crush" on Megan Fox and they don't know how to get over it. As soon as Megan opens her mouth, the world wants her to shut up and disappear. But get her in front of the camera and no wait, she can stay. Megan Fox the actress vs. Megan Fox the person have different degrees of tolerability. So what? She's not in the way. She doesn't matter. She is entertainment. She's so untouchable. So stop hate-crushing. She's not even in my universe or yours for that matter. I mean, if Megan Fox starts a punk band and preaches - sans knowledge - about feminism, I'll get pissed. As long as she keeps talking about poo and posing naked, I'm cool.
