No it is not just you, people have and will always be obsessed with celebrities. I do agree that is getting worse.

I personally can't understand following celebrities on twitter, lol. I know that is a big thing now, but I just don't get it.

My Husband and I get annoyed when they make celebrities headline news on TV. It's irrelevant to our lives, just encourages people to be voyeuristic gossips, so we switch it off. BBC used to be the serious/sensible channels that recognised and discussed World problems, but sometimes I think they are getting celeb obsessed/dumbed down too, joining those with 'psychological shut-down' to the real News in the world. The reason is that everyone is 'ratings' and readership numbers obsessed and are afraid to lose viewers/readers, no matter how good the show/news is, so they dumb down to gain more viewers/slack-jawed nosey gawpers who, as a result, know nothing of the real world they live in.

I have also noticed how biased and insular, rather than World view, the news is getting. BBC is no longer as neutral in their reporting as they used to be. Sign of the Times - You can see how Satan doesn't want people to care about reality because he doesn't want them to get worked up to do anything useful about it. He encourages the imitating of the selfish hedonism and immature behaviour of celebrities and is building the media up to hating anything Godly, mature and respectful. Armageddon rolls nearer!
