John Travolta is Deluded

Granted, he is a movie star and has been in some big hits in the past, but I don’t know how accurate it is for John Travolta to compare himself to Elvis or Marilyn Monroe. I mean, it wasn’t that long ago that he was in a “Look Who’s Talking” K-hole when Quentin Tarantino saved him from a fate worse than “Hollywood Squares.” From MSNBC.com:

“I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis, but part of the reason I didn’t go the way they did was because of my beliefs,” Travolta told the Irish Independent.

The star went on to credit his sometimes controversial religion for the difference between his fate and theirs.

Actually, it’s cause you’re boring. BORING, I tell you. Dude, real stars live hard and die young because they’re out of control and crazy and we love that. They don’t have IRAs and star in silly movies like “Wild Hogs.” Get out of my sight, before I really tell you how I feel, Travolta.

Now, it’s time for me to express the exact opposite sentiment in a blog post about some out-of-control starlet…

    You’re delusional, not John. JT is so amazing. I’ve met him – and lots of other famous. He is a cut above as a person. He’s the sweetest, kindest person in real life. One of the best human beings I’ve ever met. And bringing up old career slumps because you don’t like someone’s faith is sooo passe.

    Just because someone is “sweet” and “kind” doesn’t mean he’s got star quality equal to Marilyn Monroe and Elvis, hon. He might be a star but he’s not on the same level as them, no matter how much you want him to be.

    Just another shameless plug for your bullshit, eh? YAWWWWNNNN….. ya know, the more you have to talk yourself up, the more insecure you are. *wink* Now get back in that fat suit and do your job – ENTERTAIN, dough boy.

    Who wants to compare themselves to a vacant blonde twit who had no acting skills? He might want a better frame of reference next time.

    “…I mean, it wasn’t that long ago that he was in a “Look Who’s Talking” K-hole when Quentin Tarantino saved him from a fate worse than “Hollywood Squares.”

    Hells yeah! Travolta needs to pay his weekly tithe-ing (tithing? whatever) to Tarantino, not L.Ron!

    The reason that Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley have the star quality that they do is BECAUSE they died young.

    If Marilyn Monroe were alive today, she would not be remembered as some GREAT actress, but as a washed-up sexpot.

    Similarly, before Elvis died, he was an overweight druggie. If he had lived, he would still be an overweight druggie, and people may refer to him as a has-been.

    Come on, remember how everyone turned on Whitney Houston once she appeared to be doing drugs? And you can’t tell me her star power wasn’t as great as Elvis Presley’s was.

    It’s all about legacy. People become a little enamored with the dead…. giving them more credit than they received while they were alive.

    Travolta is full of himself, he isn’t half as popular as those two. Oh, and Scientology is for idiots, and gays!

    Travolta IS full of himself. Monroe and Presley were each unique, if not overly talented. They had on-screen presence that compelled the audience to watch them.

    Travolta is just another actor. He’s never played a part that another actor couldn’t have played just as well. He’s okay, but nothing special. He should just go and fly planes now.

    I concur, JT is an egomaniac. He is a fraud, pretends to be a heterosexual, even has Kelly Preston on the payroll to play the role of his wife. In hollywood the word has been rampid, JT is gay. Recently, there were pics on the web of JT smack lips with some dude. Those pics, those rumors were snuffed out in less than 12 hours and never seen or mentioned again. I suppose that is how your money flows, give multi-millions to the Scientology Cult and that allows you the freedom to get freaky and then be protected. Fuck Hollywood. For all we know the scientologists are funding the Iraqi Muslim Bait-n-switch Assholes.

    I knew this about JT when he was flying his jet to show people how safe air travel was after 9-11. If he had really wanted to show us how safe it was, he should have flown commercial in economy class! doh!
