One of the main reasons we're so obsessed with celebrities is because we feel a need to connect with them. In today's world, it's easy to feel isolated and alone. With social media, we're constantly bombarded with images of other people living their best lives and it's only natural to feel a twinge of jealousy or envy. When we see celebrities living seemingly perfect lives, it's only human to want to find some common ground with them. We see them as larger-than-life figures and it's easy to forget that they're just like us - they put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us! By connecting with celebrities, either through social media or by following their career, we feel like we're part of something bigger than ourselves and our everyday lives.
