Pet Peeves 4: Ownership of celebrities

Alright, I won’t deny it – I’m a serious fangirl when it comes to T.O.P and Jang Geun Suk with the occasional fangirling over (uncle) So Ji Sub.

HOWEVER, since I do have a lot of background with forums and stuff, I always get disturbed (and irritated) when I see comments such as these:

“OMGAH MY WIFE YOONA MADE IT TO A NEW DRAMA SERIES!!!”

or

“OH LOOK MY HUBBY LEE MIN HOย IS UP THERE AT NUMBER 4!!”

Both quotes were a work of fiction. If by some chance they are the same as existing comments, it is purely coincidence, I swear!

I really don’t think that celebrities appreciate their fans claiming that they are in a marital status with them. Sure, of course I understand it’s a figure of speech, but it is indeed a pet peeve of mine for rather obvious reasons.

I absolutely never ever call T.O.P or JGS like my boyfriend or whatever – I respect what they do, and that’s about it. Where I can, I shall compliment them to no end, and where they are flawed, I shall defend them to the curvature of the earth. As for Uncle SJS, I hope you all realise I am saying it in a rather joking manner (same surname, he’s older – blah blah – pretty uncle to me – I never claim him to be blood related or family related in any way. Besides, it’s typically an Asian culture to refer to a senior male you respect as ‘Uncle’ anyway).

I personally think when people start using the words “hubby”, ‘husband”, “wife”, “wifey” etc.ย that they are getting a bit too far. Probably because it just isn’t true to begin with, and I can foresee a lot of fights going like:

A: HE IS NOT YOUR HUBBY, HE IS MINE!
B: NO! HE IS MINE!!!
A: RAWR HE IS MINE! HE IS EVERYWHERE AND I EVEN SLEEP WITH HIM IN BED HE IS BESIDE ME EVERY NIGHT!
B: HE’S ON MY WALLS EVERYWHERE IN MY HOUSE, SLEEPS WITH ME TOO – THE ONE IN *YOUR* BED IS AN IMPOSTER!!!
A: HE LOVES ME!
B: HE IS EMBROIDERED ON MY PANTIES!!
A:
ewww.

What do you think about people who claim ownership of celebrities?
