4 Reasons Why You Obsess About Celebrities

I’ve written about some dangerous aspects of celebrity obsession but there are also plenty of normal, harmless reasons to celebrity-watch.

  1. Social bonding – celebrity watching creates sense of connection (even if it is critical)
  2. Stress reduction – celebrity watching is relaxing, like reading a book or watching TV
  3. Escapism – the news about celebrities is far from our own lives
  4. Entertainment – celebrities  amuse, concern, or shock you

All harmless and diverting from the daily grind.
