People with Careers They Don’t Deserve

Rashida Jones only has a career because of her father, Quincy Jones. She’s a spoiled brat from Bel-Air, a flat one-note actress and a phony, the nice girl act is such a show, easy to do for a Trustfund baby who never had a problem their entire life.

Rashida Jones is a great straight woman--she showed so both on The Office and Parks & Recreation. I was surprised to find out her parents were famous.

Anya Taylor Jones. Rich, bland and unappealing brat. Terribly miscast in the chess show.

John Mayer. Only became famous because mid 2000s music was so bad that he had no competition. Ugly voice and terrible melodies.

I dont remember her from anywhere, I guess she has the career she deserves. John Mayer can play the guitar, he is pretty good at it and is generally well respected even by the rock and roll community for it. His songs and singing are blah, but he deserves whatever he has gotten.

Jones obviously got her foot through the door thanks to her parents, but she's done solid work.

I like her. I find John Mayer insufferable, but many Deadheads have accepted him as worthy of playing with the remaining members, which means something. I haven’t gone to see them since Jerry died.

by Anonymousreply 3605/02/2021

I agree with R4. John Mayer's guitar playing is good, but he should hire someone else to write songs for him. And he should hire someone else to sing those songs. Other than his guitar playing, his music is very dull. But, his ego won't let him do that because he wants to be the star.

Chelsea Clinton is a good choice. Not because of her role on her parents' foundation. But because some network (NBC?) hired her as a correspondent or something straight out of college, and I don't believe she studied journalism. Same with Hunter Biden. You can't really point to the Trumps, because they work for their dad. It will be interesting to see where new grad lawyer Tiffany lands.

Kelly Osborne. She has no talent, despite trying at showbiz for 20 years now. Her mommy got her all of her gigs, but her mommy's power in this town has just recently expired.

The Kardashians. Their lawyer dad supported one of the most notorious criminals of our lifetime. The one of them made a sex tape, and now suddenly the family's TV show was wildly successful. And they became hugely rich though they had no discernible talent.

I think the worst cases of "undeserved careers" are nepotism kids: Lourdes, the Pinkett Smith kids, Chet Haze (though that's more notoriety), Jude Law's kids. Margot Robbie may not be your cup of tea, but she's a good actress & the current "it" girl. Celeb kids tend to be the people who receive extraordinary career breaks based on little or no merit

Now, she's a perfect example of this; she has no accomplishments of her own, so she has to throw out "my family/MY FATHER/our military heritage, etc." because on her own merits, she's got nothing. Add to that, she's got a sour piggy face & a rotten personality. Kellyanne is loathsome, but that woman has done shit (bad shit, mostly), but would actually have her own experience to draw upon in discussions & arguments. She might be a nightmare of a person, but she has actual accomplishments.

Miss Piggy McCain has none of that. Just Dear Dead Daddy

Meghan McCain might be the winner. Didn't she land an internship on SNL during or shortly after college. She's the most humorless person on the planet, and didn't she major in something like Art History? That internship could have gone to someone who studied TV production or creative writing.

While she obviously got into Stanford because of her parents, both of them are smart people (he was a Rhodes Scholar) - he got into Georgetown and Yale Law while she got into Wellesley and was on the editorial board of law review long before their names mattered.

It's not really that hard to imagine that she inherited some smarts from the both of them.

Tori Amos and Barbara Streizand both deserve to be stripped of at least a hundred million dollars. They have some talent - but the collective consciousness went through some mass hysteria that they should become so successful? Tiny little flutey voices and singing all songs exactly the same way.

Both are obsessed with some personal sense of being abused and abuse their public in return. And both are incredibly disloyal to the people who help them along the way.

Tori at least admits she's an asshole. But she still thinks she's fucking Mozart. She's not as talented as Jewel to be honest. And Barbara's name is never mentioned among the great voices or actresses. Not in modern times. I don't get her at all. No one knows who Barbara or Tori are but a few thousand die hard fans. Streizand thought she ruled the world. But nobody likes how she murdered so much music or subjected people to such ugly films.

Tori and Barbara should form a support group for the undeserving and forgotten.

I fucked him many many nights off the rocks of Kew Beach in his ASS, deep in the water on whole summer and september. He was always clean inside and came looking for me at night. After a few weeks he got spooked so we started going to The Seahorse Motel, down the west end beach. Cheap place by the highway with a beautiful view. He had a pet name for my magic. I didn't understand it then, but I do better now.

He bought me some things, but took some things from me too.
