Sometimes I could care less about world peace and issues that directly affect my everyday life. Some days, I'm more interested in who did what to whom on the celebrity circuit. Yesterday's news was filled with good news, bad news and "really?!" kind of news. The day started with a surprise, rump-shakin' earthquake in the northeast. Now, that was news. I combed the TV channels to find the most up-to-date information on the quake, and while doing so, became eagerly distracted by the news that Will & Jada Smith were breaking up. At that point, I forgot all about the clamoring windows, screaming employees and sultry-like sway of the building. Jumping out of the 10th window wasn't even an issue anymore. Knowing that Will & Jada were about to end their millionth year marriage (or at least it seems that way by Hollywood standards) would have been the worst news of the century. And then hearing that Nick Ashford passed away at the tender age of 70 from throat cancer, threw me over the top.
So why are we so enamored by what happens in the lives of celebrities? Is it easier to stand in judgment of everyone else? Does it help to take the heat off our own shortcomings? I'm no psychologist, but when we pretend to live vicariously through the eyes of others, we get a chance to dream about what we could've been and shouldn't do. Following the lives of others means that we take a vacation momentarily from ourselves. Refreshing or depressing? Hmmm....inquiring minds want to know.
