Writer's Block: Star struck

Why do people care so much about the private lives of celebrities? Is it idol worship, schadenfreude, or something entirely different?
Honestly? Pure selfishness.

Peoples lives suck, or at least they think they do. So they live their own lives vicariously through other peoples', so they can forget their own lives before their soul-crushing job the next day. It's pathetic. And it's only going to get worse because our government - I feel - wants us distracted and docile. "Here, watch CSI and shut up. Go back to bed, America".

It's like getting angry at a dog for licking his balls. He doesn't know any better, and the people that live like this don't - and don't want to - know better. They are willfully ignorant and simple.
