Like our fascination in watching an ant (or the complete anthill for that issue) squirm when we angle the magnifying glass just so at the solar, so much too goes our fascination with celeb. As the most up-to-date installment of American Idol reveals, the regular male just wishes to be acknowledged and what greater way than becoming a ‘star’. A whole lot of us aspiration of it, extremely few of us achieve it and for those people fortunate (or unfortunate based on your point of view) to be below the magnifying glass of superstar the benefits look to be excellent.
Not acquiring ever been a superstar myself, while I am relatively of a ‘big cheese’ in my home town (smugly buffs nails on shirt), I will have to say that being a celebrity won’t seem all lousy. I would consider the dollars and the reward luggage and the absolutely free factors and umm did I say money? … Yeah, I would significantly enjoy the perks of ‘celebrityhood’ (or is it celebritydom?) any day but how quite a few of us could are living up to that scrutiny?
To have your every single transfer recorded, your relationships scrutinized, your smallest slip-up or shortcoming talked about by millions (for those of us with huge people we currently get a style of this … Thanks Mom!). Now I know some of you are thinking the cash and perks would equilibrium this out but believe about the freedom of anonymity you have now, you can decide on your nose in public if you want to, you could get a few stares but ‘the event’ will not be recorded and picked about (pun intended, Ha!) for time immemorial.
But why are we so fascinated? Does our fascination assistance us to really feel superior about ourselves? Or is it sparked by envy? For what ever good reasons superstar news and gossip is massive organization and with the most up-to-date information currently being available at our fingertips everyone and their grandmothers has a website about a person superstar or other. Quite a few of us commonly denounce gossiping in our everyday life yet feed our responsible pleasure by logging on to the newest ‘most hated celebrity’ weblogs to see the most up-to-date snide feedback about this or that man or woman.
Our celebs have turn out to be like that very poor fried ant. We really feel top-quality as we sit at our desks and search with pity or scorn at the latest young movie star to end up in jail or ignore their panties or fall flat on their deal with drunk. But alas fame and movie star are synonymous and as Newton explained for each and every action there is an equivalent and opposite reaction so much too the income and benefits cause curiosity and the paparazzi. Now … considering that it really is been additional than an hour considering that I checked that blog site, I’m now off to see what Britney is up to.
