I just don't get the deal about Megan Fox. I first heard about her (and wrote about her, too) when there was some discussion concerning the new Wonder Woman. She is in consideration for the role. Then I was looking at YouTube this morning (I have not really seen YouTube, other blogs, etc., recently), and saw an original song about Megan Fox. It just seems that the world is focusing on her, and I can't seem to understand why.
I looked her up on IMDB to get the name of the movie everyone has seen her in – The Transformers. I also saw that she was friends with Amanda Seyfried (who was great in Momma Mia). When I think of Amanda Seyfried, I can't help but hearing the Billy Joel song Allentown in my head. I heard she was from there and have since associated her with the Billy Joel song. Talk about neurons that have been misfiring lately.
I like trivia, and as far as Megan goes, this is what I got from IMDB :
Ranked #2 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2009 list. (she was #16 the previous year)
She has a quote from William Shakespeare's 'King Lear' tattooed on her right shoulder that reads: "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies."
And I saw some other random facts, none of which explains why people really think Megan Fox is all of that. I even watched an interview, and even after watching that, I still don't get it.
This makes me think about Farrah Fawcett, and because of the fractured media we now have, I don't think we will see someone as iconic as Farrah. I mean, everybody, from four to ninety-four probably had heard of Farrah, and a bunch of them talked about what she was doing. I mean, when she was divorcing Lee Majors, it was not like people think, "Do you remember where you were when you found out that Farrah and Lee Majors were divorcing." But it was big. Right now, if I met Megan Fox on the street, I would not know it was her. Even if she said she was an actress, my response might be, "Oh, you are that girl on Friends, right? The one that married one of the Arquette men."
I just hope Megan Fox's car doesn't turn into some demon robot thing that tries to kill me.
