I posted this on my revelife blog…yeah, I have two blogs assoc. with Xanga…I need a life. But anyway, I’m so curious about everyone’s take on this, I thought I’d post it here as well. Thanks!
There are some parts of Hollywood that I just don’t pay attention to, but when I see the title of an article including a celebrity’s name and God/Jesus, or it might possibly shed some light on their spiritual beliefs, my eyebrows raise. If you haven’t read, there was a plane that crashed during take off back in September in South Carolina. DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) and his buddy Travis Barker were on board. The pilots and two passengers died, and DJ AM and Barker received critical burns. After recovery they jumped back on the horse, so to speak, and have done at least one performance since.
I just saw this article from People saying that if DJ AM had not been hospitalized for the burns from this plane crash, he might not have found out about a blood clot in his leg from all the regular flying he does. He has over 2 million frequent flyer miles! Amazing. But, it could have found its way to his heart and that would have been it, cardiac arrest and he’d be done.
Before I clicked on the link, I wondered if Goldstein would acknowledge God or not. I don’t know much of anything about him. According to Wikipedia, he has been engaged to Nicole Richie…which doesn’t gauge too high on my charts, but who knows. At the end of the article, though, he makes this statement, “I have great faith that everything happens for a reason.” (and the part that TMZ conveniently leaves out of its article of the same story) “I put my life in God’s hands.”
Now, I don’t know what that means to him, but it sounds pretty good. Goldstein is an obviously Jewish name, but there’s no way to tell if he adheres to Jewish beliefs or Christian, or any particular theistic belief system.
What I’m curious about is if anyone knows anything more about this guy. Like I said, I don’t know much about him, but this is interesting to me. How do you feel when a celebrity begins to talk about God? How do you feel when one begins to talk the talk but remains in the immoral atmosphere of so many parts of Hollywood?
