OK! is all about the celebrity, and we’re a little bit uncertain about the celebrity culture that has gripped our nation for many a year.
On the one hand, it is hard to resist the urge to read the latest gossip about famous faces. After all, these are the people who are our highest paid actors, musicians, singers and so on. We enjoy seeing celebrities looking both their very best and their rather worst, learning from their style and avoiding their fashion failures. It’s amazingly engrossing to watch someone step, blinking into the limelight, gain fame, recognition and become a household name, and then watch them fall from grace. There’s a surprising appreciation of schadenfreude in the British mindset.
It is this that makes us a little worried about the whole celeb culture thing. After all, the celebrities haven’t really done anything, either particularly positive or negative. We take a little too much interest in their lives, perhaps living vicariously through their achievements, and then revelling in their falls from grace. There can be the tendency to forget that those famous names are people as well, and worthy of a bit of sympathy. Though, they are paid a really rather exceptional amount for essentially very little real work. Ah, well now we’re happy to watch them fail! NB
