Are celebrities the new gods?Watch
Their beauty is marvelled and admired (see most tabloids talking about how celebrities look, what they are wearing).
They are worshipped and exalted (see tabloids, fan sites, fans queuing to get a glimpse celebrities).
They are distant people who you can only look at in pictures or hear about in tales (applies to celebrities).
They live in a fantastical place that is off-limits to mortals (most celebrities live in glitzy gated communities in Hollywood).
Tales prevail about their exploits, particularly their lustfulness and their rage (again, most tabloids will print stories about these things).
They consume the nectar of the gods (a lot of celebrities engage in drug-taking that normal people can in no way afford/have access to).
Tales are made of their relationships and affairs with mortals and other gods (self-explanatory).
This thread is a bit tongue-in-cheek, granted, but you have to admit that this has followed a similar progression: the gods of ancient times -> medieval and later royals up until the mid 20th century -> the celebrities. All treated/worshipped in a similar way.
Thinks it makes him some kind of new God.
Well this is one race he won't win.
Very fuxking stupid.
