Shiloh: No Pressure To Be Good Looking, Or Anything
As you've probably heard, Angelina had her baby yesterday: a girl, named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. This kid is going to have it hard. I mean, people are already expecting Maddox and Zahara to be glamorous and good looking, and they're adopted! In Shiloh's case, her biological parents are two of the world's most beautiful people. What happens if they combine and it just doesn't work out? Not only will Shiloh herself be disappointed, so will I, dammit! The laws of nature just aren't supposed to work that way. I'm expecting a damn good looking kid here. But seriously, Shiloh: welcome. No pressure.
(1) Having Jolie-Pitt as your last name is, like, an instant ticket to respect, recognition and glamour. I'm thinking of having my name changed officially.
(2) Interesting the way that Pitt and Jolie fled to Namibia to escape the paparazzi. People is reporting, for example, that the Namibian government forbade foreign journalists from entering the country to cover the birth unless they had express written permission from the Jolie-Pitts. In other words, it ain't happening. Is this the newest celebrity trend? Advocate for civil liberties and humanitarianism while stateside, but then actually live in a country without freedom of press?
