Okay, it’s pretty bad when I’m defending Tom Cruise

The media loves to label. You know what I’m talking about, it’s like one of those psychology word-association tests. Say the first word that comes to mind when you hear the following names:

Olsen twins – anorexic!
Paris Hilton – dirty!
Jessica Simpson – stupid!
and of course, Tom Cruise – crazy!


But come on, people. In a recent msnbc.com article , Cruise is accused of being paranoid and forcing the “scientology way of life” onto baby Suri simply because 2 1/2 month old Suri has not yet made a public appearance. Since when has thinking that the paparazzi’s noise and flashbulbs might not be great for an 10-week-old baby become religious extremism? I can’t help but think that if it was someone like Gwenyth Paltrow, who the media loves, sheltering her baby from the limelight that the media would put an enterely different spin on it.
