I'd have to say Kurt Cobain, because I was 14, impressionable, shocked that a great artist would take his own life. It launched me into a whole phase of obsessing and researching deaths of artists. I read whole books about Van Gogh, I mourned Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix. To this day I'm still sad about mama cass elliot. I think she would have been a badass lady to follow on twitter.
I remember Carl Sagans death because adults around me were really affected by it, being 16 of course my reaction was "he was old" but oh no, he was 62. Way too young. Maybe that's a sign that I'm getting young. Anybody who doesn't make it to 80, I feel like they're robbed from us.
2) What celebrity couple were you happy to see together?
I just looked up an article on celebrity weddings of 2015 to find some inspiration for this answer and realized I haven't even heard of any of the people, oops. It was all... Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung! Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen! Whitney Port and Tim Rosenman! Literally have no idea who these people are.
3) What celebrity couple breakup were you the most shocked by?
I liked susan sarandon and tim robbins a lot, they were so cool and activisty, so they might make the list.
4) You could replace your parents with two famous people, who would they be?
I like my parents, but my dad is always joking that I "should have picked my parents better" whenever we talk about people who are insanely rich or athletically talented, so hell might as well dream.
I'm going to go back in time and be the love child of Joni Mitchell and Graham Nash.
Or if I don't want to be older... Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
5) Do we spend too much time talking about celebrities?
It's said that great minds talk about ideas, good minds talk about events, small minds talk about people, or something... we can't be great all the time.
