Okay, so it’s pile-on time once again as a senior celeb takes a young lover; in this case Jimmy Page and Scarlett Sabet.
Why does this bother people so much? Why do people care? It’s their lives. They live them as they see fit. Both are consenting adults and neither appears to be complaining. if something goes way south as is common with most relationships, age-relevant or otherwise, they can split up and start over. But for reasons that TMZ, Daily Mail and every other celebrity news outlet in the world know all too well, “never pass up a story about an older man dating [or marrying] a much younger woman!”
See, what makes these stories so interesting to me is not that Page and Sabet are dating [or whatever], but that news outlets bait readers with stories they know will inspire controversy, no matter that they are merely two consenting adults having a nice time together.
Jimmy Page is an outlier.
In the world of rock music, his contribution was a game changer, legendary. He has everything a young woman might find – at the very least – interesting.
If there is a downside to such a union, it is that he will, in all probability, die long before her.
And if that’s the story, it’s called scraping for news because all relationships are tenuous at best.
At least in this case, the commodities appear evenly distributed.
Had it been back in the day, Ms. Sabet would have been standing in a long line…
