I just read that another White House petition received 250,000 votes in the requisite 30 days. What was that petition? To deport #JustinBieber from the United States. Unless some of Mr. Bieber’s friends and family have the courage to take him under their wing and shepherd him through the horrifying task of learning how to negotiate 21st-century celebrity, he may never achieve REASON #3 for honoring #VincentPrice with a US postage stamp: Over 20 years after his death, after 65 years in the entertainment business, after 105 films, and countless TV show, radio programs, lectures, newspaper articles, stage appearances and books, fans are still remembering him like these three do, who wrote these heartfelt tributes in the last 24 hours:
“Vincent Price has been for me more than the iconic and beloved actor. Vincent is the warm and complicit presence that has permeated my life in a genuine way, and not be afraid of trying to be a better person, to share joy.” AND “I can’t begin to tell you how much Vincent Price has frightened me over the years. And I also really enjoyed his love and dedication to art, and helping spread the word about art to underprivileged kids.” AND In my small measures, I try to be worthy of Vincent Price’s legacy. A man of art and culture. A constant source of inspiration. He had these very simple words, in an interview in France : “Life is a great expression of joy.” And when he pronounced this formula (circa 1989), it was probably not the happiest moment of his life. It’s good to remember it, in moments where joy is not apparent …” So, instead of signing a petition to hate on a very talented young man caught in the horrible trap of celebrity, let’s sign a petition to celebrate the life of a man who could be a model for him and all the others desiring a life of fame, of someone who not only negotiated that world, but used it to give back to others and still to remind of how to live a joy-filled life!
