Celeb Deaths

why is it when certian celebs die such as Heath Ledger they get a ton of media coverage of thier deaths but when other celebs such as Casey Calvert of Hawthorne Heights dies nobody in the media gives a crap about their death...or even when the parent or family member of a celeb dies such as Kanye West's mother dieing get more media coverage then an actual celebs dies...how does the media decide that one persons passing is more important then another persons passing?...i guss if you were(will always be)a member of a punk/emo band from Dayton Ohio your death doesnt really matter as such as a movie stars death or the death of a hip hop artists mothers passing...this really bothers me because no one person is better or important then anyone else we are all just human beings...

i was thinking the same thing!!!
i think one coz of their achievments
and 2 just coz their death could have some gossip with it
like heath could have done drugs and thats why he died as it turned out he didnt. and things have kinda calmed down a bit more...if any of that made sense?

what you said makes sense...
i just dont see why the media didnt do anything about Casey Calvert's death seeing how he was found dead in his bunk on the Hawthorne Heights tour bus...it took three weeks for Casey to get an autopsy after he died back in November...Casey died of an acciental drug overdose which was caused by painkillers (that his dentist gave him for a root cannal that Casey had had done before going on tour )and his anti-depressents and his anti-angsity medication...but i never heard Casey's death mentioned once on like Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra or any of the entertainment shows like that....it really bothers me because Casey was just as talented at playing guitar and background vocals and background screaming as Heath Ledger was at acting....

and like kanye West's mother's passing got more media recognision then actual celebs that pass away...dont get me wrong it is really sad that Kanye West's mother died its just that the media seems to only care about people who have ither oscar nomiations/oscar or grammy nomiations/grammys that die and not the people that do you tryed to my the world a better place by using is influnce as a famous guitarist for a famous band to help spread the message that animal curlity is wrong..thats what Casey did with the help of Peta 2...Casey wanted to make the world a better place for animals and people alike...

sorry if it sounds like im bitter its just that im a huge fan of Hawthorne Heights and of Casey Calvert and it was the two month anniversery of Casey's death on thursday...Casey died on November 23 in his sleep...

Who the hell is Casey Calvert? Me and many many other people won't know who he is/was, but everyone knew who Heath Ledger was. Simple difference. Plus Heath was a very promising actor. And oh so pretty.

I just think the media focuses on the more "famous" deaths. If you have higher celeb status, then you have more media coverage.

Not that im saying that Hawthorne Heights isnt famous, but the band members are only well known to a specific kind of people, ie: teenagers, emo/punk rock fans.

I know i shouldnt generalise but society does, and thats the best way to explain it.

Many people knew Heath Ledger because he was very famous and starred in a variety of roles, known to young and old.


Sorry about Casey, but society doesnt care about fair, its just about selling papers

heath ledger was an oscar nominated actor everyone and their mother knew, so of course he gets more press coverage than.. casey calvert.

personally, i always thought of him as a genuine and talented person and the fact that his death came so out of the blue kinda makes me think about my own life, because you realize that tomorrow is promised to no one.

It's similar to all the other types of gossip about celebrities.

P!nk shows up on the gossip sites occasionally, but in general she tries to keep her life private. Even with her horse ban campaign she isn't all over the news.

But if Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse go out anywhere there are photographers there to tell us that they were out at a gas station or something ridiculous like that.

The headline makers are the ones that are very well known, and the ones that are out there doing things that attract attention (whether it is good or bad).

Unfortunately, our society is more concerned about the negative gossip.

Re: Celeb Deaths

If we would die, nobody care too.
Just persons that were on tv and are famous, the rest is not important for them because if they would make everybody that is dead on tv, and there are just a few persons that know them, nobody would watch tv anymore
