Celebrity Exposure

Today, I walked into my local Penn Station, and Headline News was on. Since it was 1100 EST, that meant it was time for the morning tabloids. Today, they were focusing all on Lindsay Lohan’s appearance in court. A few months ago, it was all about Tiger Woods. Even the regular news was about Tiger Woods.

We feed ourselves on what the latest celebrity gossip is. We don’t care if it’s good news or bad: the juicier the better. People like Perez Hilton feed on this like leeches, becoming famous for outing people and being near the famous.

Why do we do it? There are so many other things we can put into our brains. If people are so captivated with celebrities, then just watch their movies. Isn’t that enough? Do we honestly have to know every last detail of their lives?
