Why do a lot of women/girls feel it is necessary to become infatuated with certain celebrities?

If a z list celebrity comes to a night club one night, many girls will flock there to see them. They want to get a picture taken with them, lick their arse and then brag about it. You wouldn't see hundreds of guys queueing up to a club to desperately see some woman from one of these mundane shows.

On twitter you have people pretty much dedicating their lives to supporting ****ty popstars such as Bieber, one direction, lady gaga etc. Resulting in death threats to those who criticise their 'idols' and other ridiculous behaviours.

Obviously some men will do this as well but nowhere near to the same extent.

Do you reaaaally care about social status that much?

EDIT!! Yes yes I know using 'most' in the title was exaggerating it, for controversy reasons.. stop going on about it

*some. They are visible to you because they are so visible. The 'most', i.e those that actually don't really give a crap about this industry, aren't exactly going to flaunt their lack of interest, are they? I don't know many women who fit your description here, and suggest that, if you do, perhaps you need to widen your circle of female friends.

Because they feel insecure about themselves and their own lives.







I'm battling with myself on whether or not I should go into more detail on my theory here but I could end up with a wall of text. If anyone's interested then either reply to this or PM me. :borat:

I think I do need to.

Well the twitter ones are just young I suppose. But you have grown women going to clubs desperately trying to get a semi-famous person's attention.

Most is an exaggeration surely. I kinda understand what you mean though.

*Shrugs* I suppose that men are encouraged to get status and success for themselves, whereas women tend to look for status and success in others (for whatever reason).

To get their attention? Or to get shagged by them then try and sell their story to the tabloids? This is a tiny, tiny fraction of women as well.

Plus if guys saw a footballer, or their favourite actor or whatever in a club as well, they'd probably go and try and talk to them as well.

^^^ Haha this.

I think I know one girl who matches your description and she's about 15 and I'd say it was already getting embarrassing by that age.

Yeah I agree with you OP.

I think men have celebrity heroes too but they are mainly sportsmen and they have to earn the mens' respect by being good.

But the way men relate to these heroes is different, they aren't desperate to get a piece of them or be associated with them. When I was at uni a few years back every girl seemed to have a story about how she had got off with Bombhead from Hollyoaks in a club.

Guys will do stuff like put a picture of Guardiola or Zidane as their profile picture on facebook for a while or something and discuss their respect for these idols but they won't be so bothered about name dropping or needing to meet them or know the gossip about them.

Both to be honest. I've seen girls literally fight with each other over a celeb in a club one night...

Fair point about the footballer, actor or whatever but I'm talking more about specifically going out of your way to meet them rather than casually seeing them, if you know what I mean? It's not at the same level. I do find waiting for footballers autographs and getting pictures with them quite sad if you're over a certain age as well.

Exactly, you've managed to explain it better than I could!

Fair enough if the person was an idol to them in some way or another but most of the time that isn't the case!

I agree, many young girls feel they have to be in love with these celebs. I find the saturdays hot but I wouldn't have a twitter account called Mr Frankie Sandford, I don't listen to their music, I don't follow their every move, I don't defend them when anyone says anything negative about them. I'm just like, they're hot. Whereas girls reactions to One direction....

I think the sort of celebrity obsession that some girls have can be very very dangerous, as the Ian Watkins case has shown. He targeted his young super fans and some went along with his sick obsession.

Did you read about those mothers who were involved on his sick acts? Of course they're just as bad and are mentally sick but I wonder if they would have done that for someone who wasn't famous...

This. It's pretty rare it's anyone older than high school age who does that.

lol, some girls on my Twatter timeline constantly tweet celebrities, then when said celebrity acknowledges their pathetic existence they printscreen and upload it. I know one who started turning up to places in the hope of seeing a celebrity, that is actually stalking.

It does seem like more of a female thing tbh.
