    Never give em much thought actually.

    I mean their job is to entertain us. So, not much to say beyond that.they do, they don't. They will or they won't . My life doesn't change either way. Which in measuring importance to me in my life. They're not!

    I wonder how many young US celebrities from the

    2007 - 2015 era (that made lots of money) will lose everything? The Global Finance Crisis will have its Meltdown ... and the US has overpopulation and is in a peak resource squeeze. Celebs like Selena Gomez and Dimitrina Lavata have mostly had managed careers, and no time to...

    Why Would You

    Why do we have an obsession with celebrity? Are our lives so vacant that we need to know there is a better life we could live? I really don't give a **** if this movie star is dateing that rocker. Does it make the music any better if that pop star had a tough childhood or...

    More Flawed Than The Rest Of Us!

    You only have to check out British and American newspapers, magazines, and you'll see. They aren't anyone special! They are just as flawed as the rest of us! I would say more flawed since their situations give them so many opportunities to show those flaws.

    as he'll. even when a designer made a dress out of bin liners put it on a celeb it's normal and called a fashion statement. If a homeless dude did that they'd get mocked or mugged

    I may admire their artistic talent ( when they have it ) but I never , ever worship another human being. Besides, nowadays, most of those so called "celebrities" are nothing but overpaid, glorified,talentless, attention ****** and drug addicts.

    the amount of money they make. I don't think anyone should treat them any different than you treat your neighbor.
