Am I the only person here that couldn't care about celebrities and their over-inflated egos? They act like spoilt brats if they can't get their own way all of the time and coulndn't care less about their adoring fans.

Why do some people queue up for hours in the freezing cold to catch a glimpse of some superstar who doesn't evn care about them. Do these people actualy belive that celebs are bothered about them?

They're just false idols that people worship for what is basically a life of greed, petulant behaviour and wallowing in their own fame? How about adoring real heroes:- nurses, soldiers, police officers etc...

Here here rickster.
I've always thought the same.
It's the footballers that annoy me, why should they be paid thousands for kicking a ball about? Pay the nurses and doctors more and you might see the younger generation growing up wanting that career instead of 'I wanna be famous'

Obviously you care enough about celebs to post threads on the internet about them. Are you some sort of stalker Rickster?

I agree it's a bunch of arse but sadly it is human nature and in one form or another it has actually been going on for several hundred years. Nowadays people can become celebs for nothing, personally I would utilise them for target shooting but there are just too many of the feckers.

i worry about people who buy HEAT magazine, its not only irrelivant but its made up irrelivant.

Is it not generally age related behaviour ? When I was a teenager I was a fan of sportsmen or singers/bands. Now I would say I admire someone for what they've achieved rather than being a fan of a celebrity.
Marc - how do you know the stuff in HEAT is made up unless you read it ?

what exactly is this celebritiy?

is this just anyone who is famous? or people on telly? anyone who has appeared in Heat?

is victoria pendleton an over-inflated celebritiy? the queen?

is sir david attenborough a celebritiy?

The Queen is the top celebrity, I just love reading all the goss about Her Maj, the bikini shots while she is on holiday, the lot.   Does Heat magazine feature the Royals at all - if not I think they are missing out.

Dude raises interesting questions on celebrity.

I would say that David Attenborough is a famous tv presenter rather than a 'celebrity', as he does his job making TV programmes, but you never hear of him outside that.

Victoria Pendleton is famous for cycling, but also did that dancing programme (and advertising shampoo, I think?), so I think she's gone over to the dark side.

None of the "celebrities" in I'm a celebrity strike me as being special. They should rename it "My career is flagging - please notice me eating Koala cock"

Celebrity culture isn't new though, people have always been interested in knowing all about "glamorous" people. The difference now is that we have 24/7 access to information from across the world, so we get more of it.

you could always just zone out. I know the trash media push it, but you can choose to a great degree how much of your attention you give it. some people enjoy knowing what a singer does when they're not singing, or what a footballer does when they're not footballing, for reasons unknown to me. Perhaps they find it a pleasurable distraction from the mundanity of their own existence. Perhaps it's reassuring to them to see that even the famous and wealthy are not without their frailties and fallabilities. Perhaps it's schadenfreude? Personally, I couldn't give a toss about most people in public life. I enjoy watching some movies and some sport, but I don't care what those people are doing when they're not entertaining me.

the Crafty Cockney 'not special'???!!!

speaking of "the crafty cockney" reminds me of my favourite moment of Hyperbole in sporting commentary, by Sid Waddell in the 80's when Eric Bristow had won yet another world darts title.

"'When Alexander the Great was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer. Bristow is only 27."

I couldn't care less what footballers get paid as it's not my money.  Doctors and nurses though -  that's my taxes.

Other than that - I agree with AgentGinger - just ignore them.

my taxes too..so I pay myself  and with the rationalised pay they are talking about I could lose night shift enhancements holidays and sick pay nice after 22 years service and only ever 1 sick note ...(rant over )

Its the public's own  fault for watching shite like Xfactor  , voting, and then buying or downloading the song of the winner.
