Why do people care so much about celebs? Like okay, if some normal person dies, you might hear about if for like a week at most... but if a celebrity like michael jackson dies you hear about if for months on end. I just hate how they are held as so much higher than everyone. yes it is sad that he died but it is not like anyone mourning his death actually met him or knew him personally. they just need to get over it and move on with their lives like we do with every tragedy.
