Of course not. He gained popularity through death.

More like through being the Joker.

You'd be surprised how many people had no idea he was dead until AFTER The Dark Knight was released.

Society sucks.

Some people just don't care, others don't watch the news, or E!.

Hell, My aunt didn't even know, and she was watching the news when it aired.

"What? THAT'S WHO DIED? What a shame."

Thing is, most people are glorified through their death, take James Brown for example, it's cool if you liked his music and all, but to act like he was a great person, thats completely far off. He was a womanzing drunk for the most part.

Although I think Heath Ledger played amazingly in The Dark Knight, I was really rooting for Robert Downey Jr. His performance I found was exceptionally good... though, of course, he's coming out with a new movie that's already generating Oscar buzz, so that's alright with me. :monster:

I kind of feel the same way about Kurt Cobain. Sure I like Nirvana and all, but so many people play him up as some tragic hero when in truth he was a drug addict who committed suicide and left his wife and daughter alone. :/

The problem is though, people take it as taboo if you speak negatively of someone that dies <_< I'm not saying that Heath Ledger was a bad guy though.

To be fair, Cobain was a drug addict mostly because he had a crippling stomach condition that routinely caused him unbearable pain. Also, something about Courtney Love irks me. His music is still overrated though.

Shame he didn't beat the wife, she was a whore.

And to be honest, people consider him to have reinvented a genre. So that's why.

He didn't reinvent it so much as he brought it to a mass audience. Honestly he didn't do anything that the Pixies hadn't already done three years earlier.
