Yesterday, the world was rocked by news. It was not an earthquake, it was not the assassination of a politician and it was certainly not a major financial meltdown that could impact the economy and millions of jobs.
It was a divorce. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, aka Brangelina are divorcing.
Am I the only one who sees that this is non-news? It’s a divorce, couples divorcing is not news and not front page worthy (well, that depends on which newspaper you read. I read the New York Post, it was a questionable cover to say the least).
It is sad? Yes, divorce is sad and heartbreaking. But is also part of every day life.
Am I sorry that it happened? Of course. I can only hope the soon to be former Mr. and Mrs. Pitt can be amicable and mature, especially when it comes to their children.
But I wish the media would focus on what is really important and not another Hollywood divorce.
