While we’re on the topic of self-important celebrities, it must be hard for them not to believe in their self-importance as it seems so many people tell them how important they are. According to the June 29 issues of the Los Angeles Times, celebrities were eager to get their own iPhones prior to the public release of the device. Cher “is longing to buy one” according to her publicist, Liz Rosenberg.

But Ms. Rosenberg isn’t being upfront with us. Cher doesn’t want to buy an iPhone. She merely wants to have an iPhone. According to the Times article,

“I haven’t been successful in getting one for her,” the publicist said, adding that she might have to stand in line for Cher or find a fan to do so.

God forbid Cher would have to stoop to buying her own phone! The disappointing thing is I bet her publicist would have no problem in finding a fan to stand in line for her. Still, this is not the worst of it.

Have you ever doubted that many celebrities don’t think of themselves as regular people, that they really do believe they deserve special treatment just because they are celebrities? Rosenberg will happily dispel this doubt.

Doesn’t winning Oscars, Grammys and Emmys entitle her to move to the front of the line?

Apple has moved up a notch in my estimation through all of this. A spokesperson for the company said, “Lots of people have requested iPhones. No one is getting any special treatment.”
