Celebrity dating gone too far
(Alternatively sometimes the obsession takes the form of the person believing they’re going to become the celebrity’s best friend.) As long as it remains a fantasy there’s nothing wrong with it but if you find yourself making plans to somehow meet the celebrity and get them to fall in love with you, that’s the point where it’s crossed over into an unhealthy obsession.The odds of this ever happening are almost non-existent.With the prevalence of our celebrity culture just about everyone can name a celebrity that they have a crush on.However, sometimes those celebrity crushes can go too far to the point where the admirer has lost their sense of pragmatism and reality.It really annoys me when people say that fans are crazy and have no life.In my opinion, what’s really “crazy” is shaming people for their interests!
These celebrities made questionable decisions about their looks and destroyed them with an overabundance of plastic surgeries.But the sweeping, simplistic dismissal of celebrity culture misses some more deeper, tougher truths.Running through Starsuckers – and this wider debate – are two incompatible arguments about celebrity." Yes, I fret that one of my friends is obsessed with Justin Timberlake, and seems to have a stronger imaginary relationship with him than with anyone she actually knows.
Yes, I find the creeping of celebrity gossip into serious news broadcasts disturbing.The a new headline-snatching documentary Starsuckers, released today, expresses this view at great length: the West has been drugged by fame into a brain-coma, where our eyes can only follow the neon lights of Hollywood and the Big Brother house. The two-hour film – with all its haughty polemic – helped me to figure out why I am so queasy about this argument, even though I agree with some of its specific points.
