Greetings Dear Readers,
While watching Chelsea Lately tonight, I was informed that Bristol Palin has a memoir in the works. I was intrigued to find out that Palin is only 20 years old. Now, in my experience, memoirs are written by people who have lived long, illustrious lives and have had many accomplishments. Since Bristol Palin has done neither of those things, it got me to wondering why in the world she would need to write a memoir. Then-it dawned on me! SHE NEEDED TO WRITE A MEMOIR BECAUSE THE WORLD IS ENDING!!!
Now, you might be thinking, "Happy Yellow Jeep Girl, do not be a hater on Bristol Palin, she has had many accomplishments in life including losing on Dancing with the Stars, having a teen pregnancy and subsequent child out of wedlock, and having a mom who completed half a term as Governor of Alaska! She is not just trying to capitalize on her fame before it is too late!" For Exhibit B, I give you Justin Bieber. Here is another extremely young person (12 years old, last time I looked at him) who has a memoir in bookstores. Again, what has Justin Bieber accomplished, besides making it popular to blow dry your hair straight forward into your eyes and singing songs that consist of the lyrics "Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby!" My educated guess is that he is selling his "life story" to help with the provisioning of his bomb shelter, since he has not been on this Earth long enough to save up much money.
Loyal followers, these two celebrity teenage memoirs are not isolated incidents!!! According to the website The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/04/justin-biebers-memoir-and_n_669215.html#slide_image) there are at least NINE OTHER MEMOIRS BY PEOPLE UNDER 25!!! Coincidence? I think not!
