This whole celebrity worship is so weird, but it’s been around for a long time, sometimes obviously to a worse extent like emperor worship or living deity spiritual leaders’ worship (which is still around).
I do like some prominent people myself, but I like to think of them as human like me. I think the worst thing I have is that I like some famous hotties and think too much about them. Television and movies do present some of these people in such favourable light that it’s hard to resist the urge to think of them as more than just people.
I am guilty of it myself having said all that.
