I've Never Been Starstruck!
I'm always amazed when I see fans gush toward celebrities or muscial performers at concerts or public appearances. The audience is screaming, women are fainting or crying just because they saw this celebrity perform. I don't understand. Yes, I enjoy musicians and performers music; yet, to be overcome with emotion because they walked on stage, I just don't get it. I've never been starstruck.

I can barely keep up with the things I must know, let alone extra stuff. Maybe its entertainment for them and it just isn't for me.
