My 3rd Tom-Tom Post in a Week


Written on 7:26 PM by Jack B.

I swear this is getting out of hand. Can a day go by without this nutcase making news? Tom Cruise has entered Michael Jackson stage of celebrity weirdness. Except in Michael's case he's been "Wacko Jacko" for decades now while Tom Cruise has morphed over night into from of the biggest movie-stars in the world to one of the biggest head-cases.

Here's the now infamous exchange with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show, via a very apt (and funny) pictorial version of it by blogger Michelle Collins at You Can't Make It Up (which I found via Amy Welborn)

And here's a commentary by Alessandra Stanley in the NY Times that further show why that paper is losing its relevancy - it has no idea what "real" people are thinking. Entitled Talk Show Rarity: A True Believer's Candor here's an excerpt:

Mr. Cruise seemed unbound, and perhaps even a little unsound, but there was something enjoyably bracing and bold about his outburst. It was as jarring as his crazy-in-love ode to the actress Katie Holmes on Oprah Winfrey's show last month, and that was perhaps the most e-mailedvideo clip since the Howard Dean Scream. But this latest display of kookiness lent the actor new credibility: his over-the-top declarations of love may look to some like a publicity stunt, but there was nothing self-serving or career-enhancing about his rant with Mr. Lauer.

"Credibility". Ms. Stanley, with all due respect - are you as nuts as Tom-tom? Cruise's uncalled for insults to Brooke Shields (and by association anyone who takes/took anti-depressants), gratuituous making-out with his recent (and mysteriously aquired) 26-old girlfriend, and his stuff his bizarro religion down the throats of anyone on his film sets has just about ruined whatever "credibility" he once had. He should be taking those mood stablizing drugs he so abhors. And this is not either "enjoyably bracing and bold" either. Tom's "fiancee" has shown all the symptoms of being brainwashed by a cult while he is behaving like the middle-aged man he is going through some kind of mid-life crisis in public. This is sad and a little scary but not "enjoyable". I didn't give two thoughts about Mr. Mapother IV until he started with this bizarre behavior and now I just want him to go away (perhaps get some counseling from those psychatrists he rails against). The personal lives of celebrities don't usually interest me and there are some things I'd just rather not hear about...or see for that matter.

Meanwhile has posted two interesting articles on this.
One is a focuses on what a possible Scientology wedding might look like and the other is an interview with a religion professor on what Scientology is.
