I don’t understand why people worship celebrities?
It is one thing if you idolize a musician, a writer, an artist, as they have created something which you relate to and which inspires you. There are also a few remaining free thinking actors and film makers who fit into this criteria.
But vapid, ridiculously aesthetic and flawless celebrities who do nothing but pose in front of a camera all day reciting lines, being a show pony for marketing by promoting brands and products which they make look appealing so you purchase it. Hollywood is so unsubstantial. Essentially what you see is what you get, beyond the flawless facade it is an empty and barren wasteland. Yet millions of people fall for the glamorous masquerade, so many people buy their magazines and read their trashy tabloids and watch the melodramatic, illusory and unrealistic television shows and movies.
For what? So your entire life is a perpetual letdown? So you constantly adhere to unrealistic expectations set by the media? So you are made to feel inadequate?
Why give them the power? Why not create something of yourself instead of fueling the fire governed by the archetype of the celebrity? Cut the ties that bind you to society and free your mind. Turn off the television, throw away the glossy, gossip magazines and open a book instead, start a journal and write down all your thoughts. Meditate. Reflect. Pursue your interests. Make a ‘celebrity’ out of yourself and your creations. Abandon the ship of mindless fools drowning in an array of advertising and deception and learn to think for yourself. Don’t be the puppet for somebody else.
