When I think of celebrities I admire, like Barack Obama, Muhammad Yunus, Yann Martel, Sushmita Sen, Steve Jobs, Saleem Sulaiman, I admire them for their talents, their personality or for something unique they may have accomplished. But what is it about celebrities that makes us want to jump off our seats, drop everything we are doing only to go catch a glimpse of their hair? What are we hoping to accomplish? I think its not so much that we want to see them, but we want to be ‘seen’ by them.
Next time you scream in response to seeing a celebrity, think about why you are screaming, and message me as I am no real exception. I cheer to show support for the celebrities I admire. I like a little bit of craziness- it keeps life interesting.
