How Did We Become A Celebrity Worship Culture?

How did we come to know the names of actors and musicians. How come the death of a celebrity hits us as much as people who are a part of our lives?

Celebrities trying to influence elections ... What business do most entertainers have getting involved in politics? If a celebrity wants to be relevant have someone write a juicy expose on your life or accidentally have a sex tape leak.

people have always worshipped/admired celebs. The only difference is that we've actually narrowed down what a "celebrity" is more.

Previously, go back as far as you want, and actors and musicians of sufficient fame were characters of worship and groupies. Hell, Mozart probably got more ass than a toilet seat. Shakespeare was a fucking rock star.

What we have done, however, is remove the non-entertainment celebrities from major focus. People no longer talk (as much) about the Rockefellers, the Fords, etc. Few people give a fuck what the Hearst family is doing currently.

But no, we've always had celebs, and people willing to idolize them.
