    Have You Ever Cried Over the Death of a Celebrity ?

    I ask this question in the wake of Steve Irwin's death.

    I was watching the BBC news tonight (which, btw, is 10 times better than
    any of the drivel that comes over the airwaves in the states... But, I'm drifting)

    Anyway, he was fairly popular here in America, but I had NO idea the level of his celebrity in Oz.

    Good Lord, the thousands of flowers, the cards and letters to his family...
    The grief was overwhelming. People were shown weeping and almost breaking down in the sorrow of his passing.

    Which got me to thinking, "Has any star's death affected you in this way?"

    I can remember being sad when Jim Henson died (The Muppets...such creativity cut from us way too quickly) And of course, Jerry Garcia. (for those here that know me... )

    But, actually crying out loud over the death of someone I never really knew in person ?

    It hasn't happened to me.

    How about you ?

    Maybe they had just read the posts on JUB that savaged Irwin instead of memorializing him.

    Sorry, that's still fresh.

    I can't remember crying in public about anyone's passing, but yes, in private I have teared up or wept at the passing of a particularly gifted actor who moved me in cinema (Jimmy Stewart, etc.) or a heroic figure who had blazed an unconventional trail (Julia Child), or merely a tragic celebrity (BenF46). Oh wait, Ben's not dead yet.

    I also wept for Princess Diana. She was very special to me for various reasons, and it came as such a shock.

    Nope.

    Even though I lost three friends at the World Trade Center on 9/11, I still wept and cried for days and days after that event, but NEVER for a single celebrity.

    Not to take away from a celebrity's contributions to this world, but what do celebrities do to further the advancement and enlightenment of mankind that regular "joe-bloes" dont do everday?

    Being the Trekker that I am, I was very saddened when DeForrest Kelly passed away. He was the actor who played Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy. I grew up watching Star Trek in re-runs and always loved the back and forth between his character and that of Mr. Spock. You watch these guys doing the shows and then the movies and somehow you don't even think that they'll pass. The same thing when Jimmy Doohan (Scotty) passed as well.

    I don't think i have cried at the time of a celebrities passing, but when I watch a memorial special, or some sort, I can tear up. I just seen a few clips of Steve Irwin, on the Discover Channel, and got a little choked up. He was not my favorite celebrity, but the manner of his death is very sad indeed.

    gram parsons died sept 19 so theyll remember him this month

    i think its just damnable and tragic how he died



    Death

    In the late 1960s, Parsons became enamored with Joshua Tree National Monument. Alone or with friends, he would disappear in the desert for days, searching for UFOs while under the influence of psilocybin or LSD. After splitting from Burrell, Parsons would frequently spend his weekends in the area with Margaret Fisher and Phil Kaufman. Before his tour was scheduled to commence in October 1973, Parsons decided to go on one more excursion. Accompanying him were Fisher, personal assistant Michael Martin, and Dale McElory, Martin's girlfriend. Less than two days after arriving, Parsons died September 19, 1973 in Yucca Valley, California at the age of 26 from an overdose, purportedly of morphine and alcohol. According to Fisher in the 2005 biography Grievous Angel: An Intimate Biography of Gram Parsons, the amount of morphine consumed by Parsons would not be lethal to an addict and that he had likely overestimated his tolerance considering his past experience with opiates. Fisher and McElroy were returned to Los Angeles by Kaufman, who dispersed the remnants of Parsons' stash in the desert.

    In a story that has taken on legendary stature, Parsons' body disappeared from the Los Angeles International Airport, where it was being readied to be shipped to Louisiana for burial. Maintaining his promise, Kaufman and a friend managed to steal Parsons' body from the airport and, in a borrowed hearse, drove Parsons' body to Joshua Tree where they cremated it. The site of the cremation is today marked by a small concrete slab and is presided over by a large rock flake known to rock climbers as 'The Gram Parsons memorial hand traverse'.[2]. The two were arrested several days later and fined $700 for burning the coffin, since stealing a body was not a crime.[3] The burned remains were eventually returned to Parsons' stepfather and interred in New Orleans. Kaufman raised the fine money by hosting "Phil Kaufman's Koffin Kaper Koncert", an informal tribute to the singer with music from Dr. Demento, Bobby "Boris" Pickett, and Jonathan Richman. Relabeled bottles of "Gram Pilsner" were also distributed.

    I weep for the common man.
    I'd like to try to answer that, if I may. First, crying over the death of a celebrity does not mean that one does not also cry over the death of the common person. It doesn't make it an either/or situation. I can't begin to imagine how many tears I have shed over your friends and the others lost that day, and even now my heart hurts for you and the loss you must feel.

    Also, many times the kind of celebrity one would cry over is one who in some way touched the individuals who mourn him/her. In the cases of a great actor or singer, these were perhaps common people who were elevated to their status because of the love the public had for their works. When a Jimmy Stewart or a Katherine Hepburn dies, the memories they evoke of their work and how it affected the viewer can be powerful. When Stewart contemplates suicide in It's a Wonderful Life, and then proclaims crying "I want to live," he strikes at the heart of many of his viewers--the desire for life to be different, the regret of roads not taken, the despair at feeling lost, and the struggle to feel alive again when one only wants to give up.

    For every actor/singer/humanitarian who passes, the passing is no less than the common man's death--it in essence reminds us that even the common man can rise to other heights, and in so doing, can inspire others to do so as well. They don't mean more than us--they are us.

    Those are just my thoughts, respectfully.

    I cried when the Pope died. Being raised Catholic, all my life I've always been told of the Pope John Paul II and he is all the Pope that I've known all my life. I was babysitting my nephew when the service for the Pope was being aired and all that my nephew would say is "Why is Grandpa laying down there?"

    As far as celebrities, I cried when Jackie O. died and when it was announced that JFK Jr.'s body was found that fateful day. The night that Diana passed away, my grandfather passed away as well, then the day after Mother Teresa passed away as well. I cried when my grandpa passed away, I cried for Diana's kids when she passed away and I cried for those left behind my Mother Teresa when she passed away as well.

    Today marks the passing of Mother Teresa. I'll never forget that date (she died on my birthday [no birthday remarks - this is SO not the thread to hijack]).

    I was young at the time of Diana, but I remember my mom crying over her.

    And like Cousin, I was really touched by Nancy's display of love for Ronald.

    I cried when Karen Carpenter died. I was working at NCI (National Captioning Institute) at the time and one of the girls who captioned the evening news came and told me it had just come in over the Reuters newswire that morning. I was a big fan of Karen Carpenter and loved her singing... (still do).

    I cried when Princess Diana died. My mom told me about it when it was first broadcast on television about her accident; the first reports were that she was in serious condition, but it never entered my mind that she might die. We watched the funeral in tears, sobbing as if she were one of our own dear friends...

    I cried when President Reagan died. And like Cousin said, when they showed Nancy resting her cheek on the casket, that was a heart-wrenching moment... I thought she showed amazing courage and grace with the cameras on her. It reminded me of Jackie Kennedy and Coretta Scott King at the funerals of their husbands...

    I cried when Michael Landon died, remembering his appearances on "The Tonight Show" when he knew he was dying, particularly his final appearance.

    I cried when Carroll O'Connor died, while watching TVLand's "All In The Family" Carroll O'Conner tribute, mostly though, because it brought back memories of my dad, how much he enjoyed the show...

    Hmmmmm, I too am fairly sensitive about death, so I too have a few who've touched me: Princess Diana, of course, and President Kennedy's death, Bobby Kennedy's death, Martin Luther King's death......I tend NOT to get too upset over people who have lived their life to it's end and die say in their 80's+....

    Oh yes, and John Lennon's death, since his life was cut short by some A-hole! I truly enjoy his music...

    I'm sure there are more; but they escape me right now...
    One day Gay people WILL have the same Civil Rights once granted to all peoples regardless of the color of their skin, sex or sexual orientation....Shall we wait or should we demand those rights?

    Kurt Cobain.

    I was a mess for two weeks.




    I also cried tears of joy once Ronald Reagan finally croaked until I remembered that him being alive for longer would mean more suffering... then I was kinda bummed.

    ^^ Layne Staley, Alice in Chains frontman, contemporary of Cobain's.

    Layne's death was heart failure from a heroin overdose, but he'd become such a recluse that his body was only found in his apartment two weeks after his death. When they crunched the numbers, it appeared that Cobain and Staley died 8 years to the day apart from one another.

    I think that's what saddened me the most - that he died and nobody realised it for a few weeks. I do remember there being a lot of fallout at the time directed at some of the media - MTv and VH1 in particular - for not mentioning it in their daily/hourly news broadcasts. I only heard about it the next day on Yahoo news.

    Truly tragic for both Layne and Kurt, and those of us who appreciated their art.

    Those two deaths really affected me. In Seattle they covered Layne Staley's death pretty much as soon as they found out.

    Same thought here...I had great respect for him as he was a great human being. During his funeral, it was like 3-4AM here in the east coast, but I was still wide awake watching and crying. I even recorded it through VHS ( i know..so outdated) so my parents could watch it that morning.

    I cried during the episode of "Eight Rules" right after John Ritter died, not because I was a big fan, but because everyone on the show was really crying.

    I didn't cry when Elliott Smith died, but I was distraught the whole day at school. And no one else knew who he was, so they didn't care.

    Same with Phil Hartman. I was upset. I loved him on News Radio, the Simpsons, and SNL.

    Yeah I dont really consider him a celebrity, otherwiseI would have mentioned him. But I think a cried a little when he died. He's also the only pope I'd ever known. So he's been the figurehead of our thing all along for me. I have a lot of respect for him.

    I think I shed a tear or two when Aaliyah died. That was my girl. She was so young, so sweet, so talented; to have her die like she did, right when her career was really starting to take off was really depressing.

    No, I only cry for those I know and love. Celebrities are just too distant for me to have any real feelings for! They may have been great people but I could never feel that I realy knew them...

    Not that I really know why, but I remember being busted up for at least a couple of days when Diana was killed. I remember thinking that was kinda weird as I really didnt know her.

    Re: Have You Ever Cried Over the Death of a Celebrity ?

    Yes, I have cried for all of the following people-

    Princess Diana-

    The Queen Mother-A true lady in every sense of the word!!! Her stoic resistance to adversity during WW2 is always a source of inpiration to me. She always seemed to relish the chance to make herself the equal, and not the better of the average person-hence her famous remark-"Now I can look the East end in the face!!" She said this when Buckingham Palace was bombed during the Blitz, even then she refused to move to a safer location.

    Catherine Hepburn-In my opinion THE consumate actress.

    Jennifer Patterson- from Two Fat ladies-her dry wit was always a source of endless pleasure- a lot like a dear frind of mine. I admired her sense of reckless abandon when it came to food, or for that matter drink.

    Somewhat to my surprise, it seems that an enormous number of tears have been shed over Steve Irwin.

    He was a larger than life character...passionate and lovable (even if a bit 'over the top' at times)...but I had no idea just how revered he was.

    Then again - I first heard about him from an American mate a few years back - at that time I had absolutely no idea who he was...but he was already a huge star on the (?) Discovery Channel in the US.

    I cried when they showed the tribute for Jim Henson. I was about 11 or 12 at the time. For the more contemporary deaths, I, like you Joshy, have just felt sad, but not really cried.

    I don't really cry for celebrities that die, but I do feel sad. It's only because I don't have as much as an emotional connection with any of them, like their family would. And that's where my saddness comes from, the families loss and how they loss some one who they loved.

    If anything upsets me more than any other celebrity, it would be musicians. Just because I really like music a lot and I get such a connection with it and a lot of the time music has made me feel better from certain situations.

    What about Left Eye Lopez? No one cry for her?

    I can't imagine crying over a celebrity, even the ones I love. They're just too remote. Or maybe I am in that case.

    The closest I came to it was when I shed a little tear for Joan Sims, First Lady of the Carry On. She was such a terrific fun woman, yet even in death she recieved second billing. Rest in Peace, Joanie.
    And I'm sure I'll do it again when my favourite leaves us.
    I'm not saying that she isn't a terrific little actress, but when she was appearing in The Diary of Anne Frank, when the SS came to the apartment, the audience rose as one and yelled "She's in the Attic!"

    I was shocked and a bit sad about Aaliyah and Diana. Aaliyah, I was a genuine fan and bought all of her albums. It was weird because I remember it was a Friday when she did an interview on 106 & Park. And then 2 days later I turn on the TV and it says she died. Wow, and I had just seen her the other day.
    But I've never actually cried over a celebrity. To me, death is not really a big thing. I don't even believe in death really. So you move from one state of being to another, big deal. What bothers me is suffering, not death.

    So far the only celebrity whose death has redeuced me to tears, was the untimely death of pop-star KIRSTY MacCOLL.

    I was also saddened by the death of River Phoenix - a beautiful human being.

    I think even my father cried at princess Diana's death. The funeral parade was just heart wrenching, especailly her brothers speach and the fact that her two young sons were walking behind her into the church. I'll never forgive that day despite not being a royalist or a fan of Diana, it was just God awful.
