    I swear I have never understood

    why girls and women today and even in the days of Elvis that all these females of all ages as young as 10 get all hormonal and crazy over boys or men they will never marry or will ever get a chance to. They worship over them like they are some god its ridiculous. Girls today at...

    I just don't get why people shake & cry

    when they meet celebrities! I can most certainly relate to actually getting a tingling feeling when this event occurs!! I admire SO many of them but there are quite a few phonies out there! Media tabloid celebs like Tan Mom interest me as well!

    Like seriously what the hell?

    ! They are humans just like everybody else! They are in no way, shape or form better than anybody else! Yes they are very rich and can use plastic surgery to erase all their physical flaws but no human is perfect or should be worshipped and treated like some "god"

    Not so sure they are worshipped

    but provide a fantasy for people who are unfulfilled with their lives.

    I just watched a piece on the news,

    how Beyonce is one of the most influential women on the planet. How sad. While I can't deny her vocal talent, I don't understand why I should respect her hyper-sexuality in her videos. Hollywood is the most hypocritical community in the world. They give voice to issues like "gun...

    I Hate Them. All of Them.

     To me, there is a huge difference between an artist and a celebrity. A celebrity is someone who is famous for no good reason, and an artist is someone respected (and often underestimated) for their real talent and abilities. I hate celebrities so much. They've...

    There are actors/actresses I genuinely enjoy

    watching when it comes to movies/tv shows/interviews. However, it's for entertainment purposes only. They're performers, it's their job to appease the public. They aren't gods, despite how attractive or funny or otherworldly they may seem to average folk. Besides, you have no...

    Why Would People Participate In a Rally to Keep Her Out of Jail?

    I am a live and let live kind of person, and yet, it seems to me that the society we live in has gone a bit haywire with respect to celebrities. Paris Hilton, is the best example of the worst example of celebrity worship.  What has she contributed to the betterment of our...

    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...

    I understand thinking a celebrity is amazing

    or attractive, but why are they fanatically worshiped by so many? For example: I was a bit sad to hear that Michael Jackson died (I always am when someone, anyone, dies), but it didn't really affect me much. I don't care what Brad Pitt ate for lunch. I don't care what Zooey...

    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...

    because of their talent. So yeah maybe some of them leave me in awe with their voices or acting, but that doesn't mean I worship the dirt they walk on. In my opinion no one is that special to deserve all that glory. They're people who were blessed with fine structured faces and...

    How can you be that interested in a person you

    don't even know? Especially when for example a reality 'star', they have absolutely zero talent, make no contribution to society and aren't even intelligent. Thinking about 'celebrities' like the TOWIE cast here. And don't get me wrong, I don't mind watching sometimes as its...

    I really don't get it.

    Sure, there are admirable ones around, but they're generally nothing special, even if some of the ones with overly inflated egos think they're awesome.

    Such as... It really grosses me out how a lot

    of girls say Marilyn Monroe is their role model. And why? Because you like her appearance or voice? Or was it the **** stuff she was in? Selling your body for a vapid image is not something I'd call "classy", nor admirable.

    The Kardashians.. are really taking over now

    for some reason. I have no idea why we look up to these people, shouldn't we look down on them? They are just using sex and nudity to move up the fame ladder :/ Shouldn't we instead look down on them? What is this world coming to, everything is so sexual.. :/
