Pauli Exclusion Celebrities

One celebrity at a time in the headlines, please.
  [vote for,

Imagine the reader trauma if Christine Aguillera, Britney Spears, and Jennifer Lopez all made headline news on the same day. The Pauli Exclusion principle, as applied to celebrities, would mandate only one celebrity of a particular Barnum state can occupy the headlines at a time--only one Girl Singer, one Bad Boy Actor, one Crybaby Criminal, one Perfidious Politician, etc.

       Living in Los Angeles, I am subject to 2 things on the Local News: 1) A Former World Champ in Weather Presentation who I and those in my household crack up at every time we see his overexcited presentation of the weather, which itself is usually calm.
2)Entertainment Reporters on Nightly News. More fluff and focus on whoever is in the limelight - whether it be the 'star' of a film which turns out nothing like the Screenwriter had in mind - except for Box Office. If one thinks Larry King takes it easy on Celebs, they've seen nothing the likes of the buttkissing on these so-called interviews. Drivel driven drivel. Fortunately, I only watch 'News' for Car Chases and weather report - now That's Entertainment.

       In the case of the stated example, I should think the obvious superior symmetric wavefunctions of J.Lo would amply justify sole focus.

       What a marvelous idea! It'd be Celebrity Smackdown every day, with great additional potential for celebrity-on-celebrity homicides! We'd solve much of our pop-culture mediocrity problem right there.   

       Naturally, programs like "Entertainment Tonight" and "Extra!" would promptly go out of business. Such delight ... the mind reels!

       I thought this would be a gang of celebrities united to defend celebritydom by excluding Pauly Shore from its shores.
