No, not at all. I am too busy. Probably for various reasons. It takes the focus off of their own life. It gives them pleasure to see celebrities fail, and be humanized or humbled. They don't have enough to do in their own lives. I live in L.A. near Hollywood. I sometimes think we are in a celebrity bubble and think that maybe the fascination in celebrities isn't as rampant in other countries. I've often wondered if that's true.
I think that is a big reason for it. My favorite tabloid is no longer in print, The Weekly World News. It wasn't about celebrities, it was about Big Foot, Aliens and Bat Boy. It was so far out there and so fake that i just couldn't get enough of it. :)
Hi Karen,people becomes overly involved with the details of a celebrity's personal and professional life because they fantasize about these celebrities. There are a few TV channels exclusively covering these famous lives, everytime you stand at the cash counter to pay for your groceries,there are those huge tabloids luring you with their bold headlines;))
