What is the deal with celebrity obsession?

Here is something to appeal to the Voyeur in all of us... Why is it that people are so obsessed with "beautiful people"? I was watching a show the other day and it was all about fans who have devoted their lives to being fans of Britney Spears. I understand that she has what many view to be the "American dream" However her life has been put under a microscope (by her own choosing). What i don't get is what makes celebrities "better" than the rest of us? I have pondered this question and I cant think of a single thing that makes them better. So they get tickets to the hottest shows, and clothing form designers. The trade off for this is having no privacy, having the details of your personal life splashed on the front page of every major tabloid. These people are no different that you or I, we all bleed red, we all breathe air... So I ask again what is the deal with being celebrity obsessed?

I fully agree with what you are saying. I do not facinate over celebs the way most people do. I do not see why celebrities are so obsessed with as they are just people, just like you and me, and should not be any different. It is true that they are celebrities and can afford expensive cars and makeup artists who make them pretty every minute of their life, but seriously, I cannot understand why people drool over them either.
