    Reading about 'celebrities', instead of reading news & more important subjects [even to make money] IS A WASTE OF TIME!!

    I'm sick of beautiful women thinking they're ugly and worthless because they don't look exactly like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner or some other ratbag.

    Popularity still doesn't stop some 'celebs' having tragic lives.

    These days I think social medias are also aiding a lot for the popularity of the celebrities. Because of these insta, facebook stories and others posts people are getting more attached to their personal life which is eventually increasing fondness of those celebrities exponentially and people are going more and more crazy for them day after day.

    I once had an immense fascination for the South African sprinter Zola Budd but that was years ago. Now, my favourite celebrity is U.K. television personality Miranda Hart, a natural born entertainer.

    Anyone who wants to know the true value of fame only has to read any of the memoirs written by Warhol's so-called Superstars from the silver Factory days to see what kind of drug addicted, alcoholic, sex crazed degenerates can become famous. Then, you'll realize that fame validates no one and that not all famous people deserve your attention.

    I find most "celebrities" boring. Can't we see they also have flesh & bones like the rest of us? Why people seem to be afraid of "anonymity"? I will never be famous like them & I am not missing a damn thing. Most of us humans will never be "famous" like them & the best thing is to accept it completely. To all of you worshippers of "celebrities, & rich & famous": GET OVER IT NOW!!!

    The first celebrity whom i physically and metaphorically worshiped was Sophia Loren, that was in the days when she was still single and was then working out of Hollywood. La Divina as i referred to Miss Loren was and still is my ideal. She could portray a Queen with the dignity of royalty or the sauciness of a slave girl which she did more than once. During the James Bond phase Miss Loren even took to espionage a few times.

    So sadened to hear of the passing of Cilla Black (real name Pricilla White). The coverage of Cilla's funeral was a glowing tribute to this Diva who entertained us over half a century. However London's gutter press which gave an unwarranted 7 pages the following day is the same 'rag' that misreported the cause of the Hillsborough stadium tragedy and have still yet to retract their outrageous accusation!

    Sheri, I think you hit it right on the head when you say that celebrities are just people and sometimes have the same problems that we have like paying bills, caring for families, etc! This obsession with celebrities is just what it is............ an obsession! If you want to obsess over somebody, obsess over yourself!

    Phil I think the point is that their personal lives are their won...including their battles with substance abuse....just as you and I have our own challenges so do celebrities....they are people...paid to entertain us...that is it! As far as how some look without makeup....why should we care? Why are those pictures splashed all over the place when some sleazy photographer gets an unattractive shot of one of them??? Would you want the whole world gawking at a bad picture of you?? Again...it is none of anyones business and as for me...I am too busy living my own life to worry about how someone looks without makeup.

    Celebrities frighten me, I don't recognize them but everyone around me does. People start acting strange and more rude than normal. I need the industry for income that the workers bring me but I don't like it. I would rather live a real life than a pretend one as served on TV .

  • Phil Harminics

    Why would anyone want to worship the stars that are druggies, drunks, and trainwrecks? What kind of role models are they? And as far as beauty goes, have you seen some without makeup? They are absolutely hideous. Why people, why?

    While I have exceedingly little interest in celebrities, I do take an interest in the fact that society has become ever-increasingly obsessed with them, and I find it inexcusable that paparazzi hound them to death in the name of satisfying the public's insatiable curiosity about their private lives. It's a sad statement about society that we make idols of actors and actresses -- people who are famous for the irony of pretending to be someone whom they are not -- yet we have little esteem for true achievement. Stephen Hawking? Now there's a "celebrity" I'd love to meet. Angelina Jolie? Please don't give her my number -- I'm busy that year! Seriously, though, you brought up a great topic, and I'm surprised and interested that there's even a working name for the obsession with celebrity! Good job --

    Hi Sheri,

    Thank you for sharing an awesome hub on a new topic with lot of originality and creativity in it. I liked it.

    Yes, I know people who worship celebrities. I see them everyday on the streets of Toronto and also within my family friends. But most celebrities don't keep up their end of bargain, failing their fans miserably.

    However, I do admire those celebrities who go beyond the call of duty to protect disenfranchised people, support nature conservation, cruelty to animals, raising charities. I have my own list of celebrities that I admire (not worship though) and take lot of encouragement from their work. One may not agree with me, but the main picture on this hub, of Angelina Jolie, also reminds me of this person's beauty, from both outside and inside.

    What's in a name? What's in fame?

    The only difference between Us and Them, is the airtime the celebrities receive. This is why celebrity worship is a clear sign of people without a life. Let me say this gently: There are some celebrities who I respect simply because of their community services outside of television. It is quite alright to watch movies, listen to their music, etc. but where do we draw the line?

    We buy their products, quote their songs and sentences, buy hair to look like them and discuss them with friends...and they do not know who we are.

    YouTube has made it largely possible for anyone to get airtime. Now, some may be thinking, "Well talent goes with airtime."

    True. But there are many talented people trying to make it everywhere so they may get to that celebrity status-and fail.

    I watch Japanese Animations mostly anyway. Some stars are too overrated.

    Good hub though -Informative.

    I agree that CWS is a problem that is inflicting many. I don't quite understand why people feel the need to worship at the church of Oprah and other celebrities. But maybe I'm just bitter that I am not famous and no one is worshiping me. Great hub! I enjoyed it immensely!

  • Joanne M Olivieri

    Putting them on a pedestal as you have said is the problem. They are just people like us but because of they are famous we look at them in a different light and expect them to be perfect. It is very sad, really. Great hub.

    We are definitely obsessed with well-known people who are mostly known for being known. And so often, it's for the most shallow reasons. Someone lives a life of excess, and we want to watch it every week.

    Great hub, as always!

    Thanks Midget38. Yes I don't get it either. I was just talking to my hubby and out of all my hubs this one is getting the most hits by far. He thinks I should write more movie star stuff, but it is really the last thing I am interested in.

  • Michelle Liew 

    6 years agofrom Singapore

    I have often pondered why people spend time finding out things about people they don't know. Perhaps its CWS....or something about them that strikes a chord. It's puzzling, and sometimes worrying. The kids in one of my English classes actually decorated the entire back of the classroom with Justin Bieber posters and for the life of me, I still wonder why! It can be an addiction if not careful. Thanks for sharing, Sheri!

    Nice hub Sheri. People worship celebrities because of all the glamor and prestige associated with them, and their lifestyle They are unreachable and a fantasy for many people. But you are right. They are just people just like all of us and go through the same things as we do. Thanks for a nice read.
