The investigation into the death of Heath Ledger has finally been closed and Mary Kate Olsen has nothing to worry about. He died on January 22nd after an accidental overdose of prescription drugs for pain, anxiety and sleep. The DEA have spent 8 months investigating this case and it’s completely unsure why exactly they did that.

TMZ is hypothesizing, and I TOTALLY agree, that they just obsessed over it because he’s a celebrity and they wanted to feel important and a part of something important that people were paying attention to. Sort of like the crying, pot smoking judge from some of the trials associated with Anna Nicole Smith. What a freaking star fucker he was. I mean, the tears in court? Incredible. Incredibly reassuring actually.

People do that kind of crap all the time. In fact, there are whole industries that exist entirely to obsess over the behaviour and whereabouts and nuances of mundane celebrities. Whole INDUSTRIES. Pas, publicists, event managers, writers, editors, stylists, dog people, caterers, pant makers. All who make their livings being next to and connected to celebrities. It takes a certain type of person to want to be in one of those occupations. I mean, can you imagine spending whole chunks of your day thinking about and operating in relation to the behaviour of celebrities? It’s just ludicrous. Ludicrous I tell you. [source]
