    Celebrity Fascination


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Why is there a fascination with celebrity life and culture? I think itís entertaining for sure. Being able to witness a celebrityís life is like watching a movie while itís in production. There is an entire plot with a climax and the end which can be a recovery or relapse. The real life aspect serves as its most attractive feature. Any thoughts?

    I think that those who are fascinated with celebrities and their lives are just die hard fans of those celebs, that's why they are fascinated with them and even emulate them. Normal people who just love to watch movies and tv shows aren't that affected and they don't even care about what they do or who they date.

    Yeah at least J. Lo's rear is real. Before Kim became famous, all eyes and attention were on J. Lo and her insured booty. Now she was overshadowed by someone younger.

    It's just entertaining to see what some people are willing to do for publicity. :P

    I think that people somehow believe that celebrities are better than "normal" people. We are all the same, I would rather watch Angelina Jolie because at least she's doing something good with her fame, most celebrities do nothing but take selfies and talk about how they look. I find that really boring.

    It's because they get shoved down our throats 24/7. We get conditioned and eventually start to believe that celebrities are better people. How would you explain Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian if it wasn't for all the marketing the've done around these two talentless sluts? I know they're rich, and money can buy anything, but from having money to actually making people like you has to be hard. So i guess those people working for them have to be doing a hell of a job.

    To me it's just fun and entertaining to watch what some people do for fame and media coverage. Some are so hungry for attention that it's silly.

    True, I can't get into the celebrity culture/lifestyle fascination and the such. The way the media portrays these people is as if they are some "golden pedestal" above society, and what say, Paris hilton or Kim kardashin, or Beyonce does in her life Needs to be known to the general populus because its more important than whats going on around them. I can't stand that stuff after a while.

    Like a recent issue that really irked me was the recent marriage in the UK with Prince charles(?), and the fact they are having a baby. Congrats for them, but theres a lot of serious stuff going on right now (given the current events) that needs much more of a journalistic focus than the luxurious.

    Some celebrities are actually good people, who worked for their shit in the first place. But some aren't too, and I'm not really fascinated by them in the first place. They are humans too, just like us, except they have a lot more benefits.

    I guess I would be obsessed over Morgan Freeman because....It's Morgan Freeman. I don't really know, I don't really obsess over actor or artist in the world. They are just people out there making a living, like everyone else. Of course the money they make is a lot more than the average person.

    I'm only really captivated by people I can relate to.
