What is it about celebrities, anyway? Why do we care what they think?
An actor weighs in on an important issue. Why do we listen? He's not an expert, a PhD, or a philosopher. He's a person who happens to be very, very, good at playing make-believe.
A singer is on trial. Why does it get front page coverage? He's not a humanitarian, an inventor, or an innovator. He's a person who can make his voice hit a given note, on demand. The best ones are the ones who can dance simutaneously.
In ancient times people worshipped demigods; people who had achieved immortality. Haven't we progressed at all?
