Kristen Dalton Miss USA 2009: Let's not make her an idol or an ideal


Kristen Dalton of North Carolina was named Miss USA 2009 on Sunday night. A fine example, according to media reports, of another American girl’s dream coming true. The greatest night of her life. The greatest night in the life of Jeannie Bogerwait a sec…you don’t know who that is?? She is Kristen Dalton’s mother. Let me show you how Kristen’s family looks like…

MEET THE DALTON FAMILY…

I learnt (from Wikipedia, of course) that Kristen Dalton is the daughter of Jeannie Boger who was Miss North Carolina USA 1982. Her younger sister Julia Dalton was Miss North Carolina Teen USA 2008 and placed 2nd at Miss Teen USA 2008; the third Dalton sister Kenzie Dalton is engaged to Chad Michael Murray and also competed in the Miss North Carolina Teen USA pageant.
Does it look like an average American family to you? So, is Kristen being crowned the new Miss USA really a fairytale story or is it another alarming picture of parents adhering to America’s ideal image of beauty. Is it just another run-of-the-mill creation from the Dalton household? I fear for the girls and parents to watched Kristen on their television sets as she was crowned Miss USA 2009. How many girls would be wishing to be just like her? How many parents would be thinking of turning their innocent children into cosmetically and politically correct ‘zombies of beauty’?

BEFORE SHE BECAME THE QUEEN…

-I would have been glad if Kristen was from an average American family where physical ‘perfection’ was not the primary value to judge children. I wonder how many times she has broken down and cried for not being able to put up that ‘perfect smile’ for everyone to see? How many sleepless nights she must have spent worrying about a zit or a broken nail?
-I don’t know who runs the Dalton household but if Miss USA is a stage for America to setup an ideal for little girls, then I would make sure nobody gets to see what the other Daltons look like…because they are perfect…maybe even too perfect to be true…a beauty factory producing the absolute best in America with an impressive success rate. Kristen Dalton is the latest model, for now.

Don’t let your daughter be like her. Don’t turn your happy-but-average life turn into a never ending pursuit of ‘physical beauty’.
As we all celebrate another glorious chapter in the American beauty industry, is anyone thinking of the rest fifty girls who didn’t win? Do you think their ‘perfect’ parents would be ‘forgiving’ their daughters anytime soon? When will the manufacturing of beauty come to a rest?

The beautiful stars are for the world to rejoice but the beauty scars on daughters are without choice.

What do you think…?

This is what  poor Pebbles has to wake up to every morning

This is what poor Pebbles has to wake up to every morning

Susan Boyle is a sensation. She is Britain’s talent, the new face of “embracing womanhood” and a living example of success sans beauty. She is “oh my god…blah…blah…love her…and some more blah“. I have had enough of it already. Somebody please wake up the viewers from their fantastic journey into the dreamy lands of Susan Boyle and the despised comb. I’m still reeling under the fact that not just Britain but Simon Cowell’s masterpiece has spread like wildfire all across the world. The media lights go flashing and Simon Cowell goes cashing. Every time I see Susan Boyle and Simon Cowell together, I can’t hear her ‘brilliant’ songs but all I hear is ‘Ka-ching‘.

The reason why I wrote this and you read this
I am amongst the chosen few on the path of enlightenment, attempting to wake the gullible millions but my attempts go futile daily. Well, there’s always a tomorrow and if I don’t get them, reality sure will. I am sure the recession has had some effect on the feel-good factor that Susan Boyle brings to the table. I wonder how many of the job seeking men and women wake up everyday to go for an interview and show up with ‘unkempt hair’. How many actually ‘dare to dream that dream‘? I sometimes feel helpless, sitting there watching millions of videos being thrust in your face of a woman who is against washing her hair and being hailed for it. Billions of people searching online for her, if she has clean teeth, six fingers on a hand or tattoos under those grandma dresses. I feel like the last guy on the planet to see through this bullsh** but there is someone or something that lurks behind the shadows. Someone who knows all about Susan Boyle, her ‘boyfriends‘, her ‘virginity‘,’kisses‘ and a lot more…Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Pebbles, Susan Boyle’s cat.

Pebbles : I dreamed a dream and Susan killed it

Pebbles has seen it all and very tired of its owner’s startling episode of stardom. Pebbles has been with Susan since she had been singing with combs but never brushing with them. Pebbles was with Susan when Simon Cowell came up with one of the biggest scams in the history of ‘reality television’. Pebbles was there when Susan dreamed a dream to become the female Paul Potts. Pebbles has seen it all and is very tired. It had hoped that Susan would start combing her hair at least for television but that never happened. It had hoped that the Grandma dresses would return to the drawers but they never did. It had hoped that Simon would stop visiting but that’s not going to happen anytime soon. So, Pebbles, too, had dreamed a dream but Susan, not life, killed it. A dream of a clean owner with less than two chins, lazy mornings with no choir practice and some Tuna once in a while. It not working out well for Pebbles. I feel for it. Maybe we all should be feeling for Pebbles rather than Susan Boyle because if anyone or anything has got talent to putting up with sh** 24×7…it’s my good friend, Pebbles.

If you feel for Pebbles, leave a word, shout or a meow for him…
