    Its A Wast Of Time

    People shouldn't worship celebrities because there work is simply to entertain. There jobs are by far the least important in a society. Engineers, medical doctors, architects, farmers, teachers, justice system, fire deportment, these are some of the important jobs people need in...

    People treat them like gods.

    I've seen girls cry because justin beiber is in front of them.... I wanted to literally kick them all down and give them a legit reason to cry.

    Don'T Know What To Think.

    I remember as a young teenager 11-14 reading magazines like People, J14 and all these gossipy magazines. I really don't see how this sort of thing appeals to anyone who is not in the age group. I mean who cares what so and so wore last night, or who broke up? Plus nothing good...

    Celebrity Worship...

    I find the fawning over celebrities and reality show contestants to be disturbing and a sign that we are failing as a nation.  When once respected news outlets like Time and Newsweek devote space to Snooki, the Kardashians, and Vienna then one gets the impression that this...

    I don't follow celebrities.

    I live my own life. I don't even know their names which is sad because my friends are always talking about someone and I'm the only one in the group asking who that person is like an idiot.

    Including idolization of famous preachers

    and so-called prophets. Let them be well-known if they are good or bad, but let's not worship them. And no, So-and-So does NOT have eyes like Jesus' eyes - he looks like something not very nice.

    Never Understood Why People Loved Celebrities So Much.

    Even as a child when someone asked me "Who is your hero?" I never had an answer for them. I don't have a hero. I love people, but no one comes to my mind that embodies everything that I admire. I guess because I always knew no one was perfect, and...
