(Huffington Post)   Anonymous confessions show how celebrities have changed or saved people's lives. Subby would like to take this opportunity to admit how Rebecca Black constantly inspires him to wake up in the morning, be fresh, go downstairs, have his bowl and cereal   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 29

I know I spent much of the late-80s fighting for my right to party. Upon further review I discovered it was not among my enumerated rights.

Celebrities have helped me realize how little I care about them.

Beatles and Rebecca Black have a lot in common...

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

When she turns 18, then I'll make a comment about her big boobs.
Until then, she's a nice young lady.

Holy self-harming Christ on an emo cracker.  These celebrities didn't "save your life".  If you were "suicidal" and listening to a song made you change your mind, you weren't suicidal.  You were just having a bad day.  Unless that song was by a boy band or other bubblegum pop star, in which case you were just a teenager having a Tuesday.  Legitimate depression, the kind that leads to legitimate attempts at suicide, isn't magically cured by a catchy Top 40 earworm.

Except for, of course, the greatest love song of our time.  I speak of "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.  Just listening to it cured my brain tumor and got my wife pregnant.

Not everyone should be saved. These celebrities may have saved the next Hitler.

Did her parents buy those for her, too?

Buttermilk biscuits by Sir-mix-a-lot cured my eating disorder. Now I'm happily married to a woman with a beautiful rear end.

Thank you mix-a-lot!

BunkoSquad: "In a Big Country" by Big Country inspired me to try to grow flowers in the desert


Until a few years ago, I always thought the line he sang earlier in the song was, "I never took the smile away from any brace-face" and I thought it was kinda mean.

So.

Certain people think that actors reading lines written by someone else or singers singing songs that - in some cases - other people wrote 'saved' them.

Really?

They would all be much  better off and much more aware of their on strength if they realized that they and only they 'saved' themselves.

But then I'm an adult; what do I know?

No, honey, you need to put your hand on your armpit to make the fart noise.

Sorry - but if you were saved from suicide because of some song on the radio; you either weren't very serious about committing suicide or you would have found ANYTHING to 'turn your life around'.

You speak from experience from all your successful suicide attempts, yes?

People don't trivially decide to kill themselves.  Nobody, remotely close to sane, is going to kill themselves because a TV show they don't like comes on (as much as people joke about Justin Bieber's music....they don't actually do it).

Suicidal people don't trivially decide not to kill themselves.  Sad 14 year-olds who can like 'totally relate' to a song and thing Taylor Swift 'saved their life' are full of crap and do a disservice to people who are actually suicidal whose problems can't be magically resolved by hearing a song on the radio.  Anyone whose opinion *can* be so trivially swayed is just one new single away from changing their opinion again!

I can't believe that I'm about to defend this, but: Look, teenagers are all angsty by nature. Are most of them really depressed enough to commit suicide? No. But to them, everything is terrible and their lives aren't worth living, largely because they're hormonal and they've never experienced this before. Don't you remember being 15? A good quarter of your class was like this. Your HS girlfriend probably like this. TFA is overblowing it pretty badly, but I'm sure that music did help most of these people through a tough time.

/gah. I feel dirty for defending this crap, maybe some Manowar will cleanse my brain.

So a bunch of angsty teenager didn't kill themselves because of some stupid celebrity? Just proves how retarded they are.

And yet even a minor inconvenience is enough to make someone decide not to end it after all. Otherwise, putting nets along tall bridges would only affect the method of suicide, not the frequency.

While it's not strictly an impulsive decision, there is a strong correlation between suicide attempts and easy availability of a means to that end. My guess is that if you have to solve a different problem it gets a different part of your brain involved, and you reconsider.

It's hard to predict, and people have strange thought processes, so I could believe something like a song that you like or that brings out different emotions or reminds you of a different time, yeah, that could snap you out of a bad train of thought.
