Jessica: I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I have a really odd guilty pleasure.
Marni: What is it?
Jessica: I am obsessed with tabloids.
Jessica: I just love celebrity gossip. I know it’s probably trash to a lot of people. But I just love it.
Marni: It just seems so mindless. I just don’t understand why you’d be so interested in the lives of people you don’t know. There are so many more important issues in the world today like famine, and war, and climate change. Really, celebrity gossip, Jessica?
Jessica: I know. It’s a strange obsession with pop culture. I am obsessed with the news, too. But I do like the mindless celebrity gossip now and then.
Marni: Well, I guess we all need our little mental breaks.
Jessica: Yes, exactly. Thanks for understanding.
