If Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Really Want Us To Stop Looking At Celebrikid Photos, Celebs Need To Stop Making Such Cute Kids

Kristen Bell Dax Shepard CMT Awards 2013

So I have a problem. Many, if we’re going to be honest with each other. But today we’ll just dive into you. Superparents Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell launched a campaign yesterday to get normals like us to stop supporting magazines (and I suppose blogs) that publish photos of celebrity children. Which in theory is totally great and I totally support it. Celebriadults choose their careers and know that being stalked comes with the territory. Celebrikids on the other hand end up there by chance. Crushable’s official child-psychologist/body-language-consultant says studies show that it’s incredibly traumatizing to grow up in front of grown men with cameras. So with those studies mind, I totally stand by their tweets as well as their proposed boycott.

 

 

 

But — and I bet you saw this but coming — I’m obsessed with celebrity children. Not only because they usually happen to be better looking that 99.9% of normal children, but also because they’re so much easier to live vicariously through than their parents. Becoming an adult celebrity takes a lot of hard work — from the celeb itself and a talented team of surgeons, specialized dermatologists, physical trainers and Ryan Seacrest. However, as we discussed earlier, you can become a celebrity child purely by chance. And considering that my last acting gig was district attorney in my 5th grade “Don’t Do Drugs” school play, I don’t think I’m going to get to live like a celeb any other way besides chance.

So with all that said, here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to TRY to be better about clicking on photos of celebrikids. For the sake of baby Lincoln. And in exchange for my efforts, I’m just going to need celebrities to stop making adorable babies. I mean, don’t go and make them ugly on my behalf. No need for braces or anything drastic. Just make ‘em normal looking. Okay?

      So they are never speaking to People Magazine again? They have an entire section dedicated to celebrity babies and while
      other celebrities have complained about this issue not a single one has
      ever cut off access to People. I doubt Kristen and Dax will be the first. I would be more impressed if they called out the celebrities that take money from these magazines for those photos of their children, the celeb baby business is a two way street.

        Thank you. Honestly the fact that they have the nerve to be upset about this pisses me off. I agree with actors keeping their children out of the spotlight, but they fucking live in LA (paparazzi hotspot) and talk ABOUT their child every other day on TV. If this was an actor that went to great lengths to protect their childs life and didn’t talk about them and separated work from personal life, this sort of situation would be ok. But the fact they talk about her in the media and then get mad about pictures is just utter BS. If they really cared they would take the money they saved, work every now and then in a different state or country, and raise their daughter without ever exposing her in this way. They need a reality check honestly.

      I agree with them. I think it’s creepy as shit that people are obsessed with the random children of celebrities they don’t even know.

    • Alexandra

      But they’re famous. Same with presidents’ kids, they didn’t chose it – but their parents did, so they’re news. If they want to stop acting and getting money out of us “horrible consumers who are first in the chain to exploit their children” then we should stop seeing their movies and then there will be no problem! Oh wait, this is Kristen Bell and Dax Sheppard – not exactly Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Who cares again?

        Not me! This just comes off as a random display of extreme celebrity narcissism to me.

    • Really?!?!?!

      Today’s “White whine” selection includes….

      I mean more seriously, yes, I think it’s creepy to voyeuristicly stalk children in the park but on the other hand no one forces these people into the public eye where they make big money for not doing much and they are the ones who brought children into a public life. When so many other parents are like “Hey I want decent education or enough food” for my kids….

      I’m not saying they are WRONG about not wanting kids to be pictured, I’m just saying this “problem” is vanishingly low on my “List of Things to Care Very Much About.”

      • spunkysmum

        Really? Are you saying that this issue is less important than, say, starving children in third world countries? :D

      I’ve been doing much better with the viewing of celebrity babies and children lately. It’s hard because yeah I like looking at pictures of adorable kids, but I really try to limit it to pictures that the parents have posted on their own accounts because those definitely are fair game. It’s not OK for kids to be harassed or stalked.
      On the other hand, though, aren’t we all sort of “punished” for who our parents are? Those are our families and our childhoods, they made us who we are, but all of us had disadvantages to our particular circumstances. Celebrity kids have advantages because of their parents that most kids don’t; if having people take pictures of you is the only thing you have to worry about, things aren’t that bad.

    • spunkysmum

      I hope Kristen and Dax will be happy to hear that my feelings about celebrity kids are pretty much summed up in that ecard that says “I can’t believe how much the royal baby looks like every other baby I don’t know or care about.” I don’t know these people. Why would I care about looking at pictures of their kids? To me this just smacks of a most nauseating combination of arrogance and petulance. I guess they actually come to believe they are really that important. How sad.

    • Jess

      I agree with them about celebrity children. It’s unfair and they shouldn’t have to live through the pandemonium. The only thing that annoys me about these two doing this boycott is the fact that they are being hypocritical by saying their daughter deserves privacy out of the public spotlight, when, every time they are on television all they do is talk about her. That bothers me. If they want a private life for their child like their child deserves, they need to stop talking about their personal life so extensively. Its just so hypocritical and unnecessary.
