Hollywood’s Baby Boom doesn’t give us permission to claim these kids as our own entertainment fodder!

It’s always fabulous to hear good news. There was good news a plenty this week from Hollywood when Kate Hudson & Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy announced the arrival of their baby son, and David & Victoria Beckham announced the arrival of their baby daughter.

I understand this making the news but what I can’t understand, or handle, is when the media think it’s OK to talk about these children as they grow up. None of these children asked to be in the spotlight – it’s their parents who are in the spotlight. These kids should not have to feel the pressure of being under the media gaze/spotlight. Their looks, character, fashion sense, etc. should not be dissected/analyzed.

I really detest that publications have ‘celebrity baby’ sections. These sections feature photos of the celebs and their children (I only checked it out as research for this post and won’t be going back!) and there’s even a section on where to get so-and-so’s kids’ clothes so your child can be just like them!  These children are not here for other kids to look up to and/or try to be them, or for us to be entertained by them! Let these kids be kids, and, if they choose to follow in their parents footsteps when they are older, then yes focus on them but for now, let them be kids!

I really hope this is something that stops very soon!

(In this case I don’t like that) That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
