The United States has an obsession with celebrities… The media shoves these people down our throats and make us look at them as super-humans. Go to any news outlet and see some pointless story on the front page about some rich/famous person just because their rich/famous. We do this to ourselves and until our society understands that celebrities are not Gods, we will be stuck in this mess. Not sure what we get from knowing so much about people who have no idea who we are, but it’s a huge problem.

A good portion of people will listen to a celebrity’s advice on fixing a toilet before listening to a plumbers advice.
