Letters written in blood, death threats, suicides, stalking, you name it. People can sometimes take the word fan to another level. I believe this intensity was clearly defined in Eminem’s 2000 hit “Stan.” Idolizing someone is different from just having respect for what they do. And if your life is completely revolved around someone else’s then you obviously need a self-assessment. I mean, how can you worship someone who is like you, a human being? That’s still someone who breathes the same air as you do so what makes them so great that you’d partake in time-consuming activities involving creating shrines, building teams in your area, working overtime to purchase tickets, or even spend your hard earned cash (which is often times your parents’ money) on silly collectibles. It makes no sense to me, and I find it rather disturbing when I hear how emotionally high-strung people get when others state their opinions on a particular star that is obviously overrated and loved by many who’ve never even had a conversation with them. Anyways, whatever makes you happy.
That’s just my opinion. What do you think? Have you ever done anything crazy for a star?
