I could never be famous. Just sayin'. Why? Because people are crazy, and it disturbs me.
Okay, I will be the first person to admit that I have my pervy moments of objectification when it comes to famous people, particularly actors and musicians. It happens, right? But I get TOTALLY CREEPED OUT when crazy fans start posting all over the internet that they hope so-an-so hasn't hooked up/gotten married/gone back to his or her ex.
Like, what the fuck? Really. Do these people think that if these actors or whatever are single and unattached, they have a SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN HELL with them? Is that even a healthy fantasy to have? Maybe it actually is harmless, but Jesus God, it still freaks me the fuck out.
How do famous people deal with it? I understand that a certain amount of exposure and loss of privacy has to be expected, even by the most ingenuous people out there, but CHRIST. Where's the line? IS there a line, or did it get trampled to death ages ago by our own voyeuristic need to get all up in other people's shit? Can you actually have skin thick enough to make it through being famous in Hollywood these days without going insane?
(This ranty post has been brought to you by the fact that I need to keep my ass OFF the IMDb boards. Seriously. Oh, and a huge RPF squick.)
