So, anyone with half a brain will agree that Hollywood is one of the worst places in the world. It’s the phoniest, most soul-sucking place I’ve ever been, and every time I have to go there, I feel my spirit getting a little more crushed. Everything about it is immensely negative, tacky, fake, vapid, and hateful. The farther you stay away, the better.
Something I hear a lot from people—not only about Hollywood, but usually—is that you have to be tough and strong to be able to hang around there. Here’s the thing, though: I don’t want to. It doesn’t appeal to me at all. Being a tough bitch is cool, but being a tough bitch in order to survive Hollywood…isn’t that a cliché, anyway? I hate the tough Hollywood bitches and would never want to be one. I’d rather be peaceful and happy. I’d rather love my neighborhood than feel like I was struggling to carry on.
I guess I just don’t understand why people make excuses for Hollywood. Then again, I make excuses for Chicago, and Chicago has winter. It doesn’t get much worse than winter.
But Hollywood is definitely worse than winter.
