Stalking Celebrities

Time for a bit of a rant. What on earth is people's obsession with Celebrities? There are people who dedicate their LIVES to buying posters and merchandise with some celebs face on it. What is the point? I wonder sometimes if it's because they use them as someone to follow.
That may be fair enough. But why do people want to know every detail of someone elses lives? At the end of the day, they're a normal person. Normal up to the point of being human, just happening to be bloody loaded, and famous. Why do people care?
What different does it make who Cheryl Cole is going out with? Why do people want to know the entire life of Ed Sheeren? Why do people care about what clothes One Direction are wearing? I just don't get it.
Magazines like Heat are simply to inform others about the lives of celebrities. They sell in millions, and as a result, even loads of sensible people know who Harry Styles is going out with. They read this stuff.
Phoenix even sent me a website called 'Who's Dated Who.Com'.
What the actual Hell? Someone sat down, found this stuff out, and then actually made a website? One that people actually read?
I am a great fan of Taylor Swift. I think she sings beautifully, and her songs have real meaning (unlike many other singers). Just because of this, it doesn't mean I want to know everything about her life. I care about her music not her shoe size.
Someone actually told me: OMG did you hear Taylor Swift is going out with Harry Styles (I think he's the right guy?) But you know what? Good for her, but I really don't care...
So why do people live their lives by reading up on other peoples? What's in it for them? Answers are apprieciated


PS- I told you it was gonna be a rant :D

Time After Time

If you tell me your secrets, I'll put them on Facebook,
Time After Time.
If you ask me the truth, I will say your adopted,
Time After Time.
If you buy a new dress, I will say that you look fat,
Time After Time.
If you gain self-esteem, my saracasm will crush you,
Time After Time.
If you buy something new, I will grab it, and break it,
Time After Time.
If you ask me for help, I will say you're a lost cause,
Time After Time.
If you get a partner, I'll get them to dump you,
Time After Time.
If you ask me to date you, I'll dump you at Christmas,
Time After Time.
If you trip down the stairs, I will step to the side,
Time After Time.
If you're hit by a bus, I shall laugh and take pictures,
Time After Time.
If you get a new pet, I will poison the pet-food,
Time After Time.
If you write a poem, I'll tell you it's rubbish,
Time After Time.
If you're looking at the screen, and thinking I'm nasty,
Get Over It!XD

She Has To Be Popular

In Year 7, I failed. Now, looking back, I know I should have been more careful, and been better trying to build up a good life, with lots of friends.
Others had Facebook already, and got connected before even knowing each other properly. Others came from larger schools, where they already knew tonnes of people. Others chose their friends more carefully.
But now it's too late. If I could start again, I know how I could have built up a life. I know how i could have gained friends. But back then, I was so innocent, and nieve.
I thought being nice to people would make them like you. I assumed if you were friendly, then people would respond in a friendly way. I had this idea that people would like you for who you were, not because of the group you started out with, if if you know how to use Facebook, and have house parties all the time.
I guess I was wrong. I decided to become friends with somone who quite frankly was odd. He was really rude to just about everyone. As a result, he was very unpopular. And as I had settled in as his friend, I was stuck with him. I was disliked too.
At the time, I thought 'Who cares'. I am being generous, with my kindness towards him, and helping him out, telling him what people like and what people don't.
But things change. Overnight, he became popular. Because he was popular, what would he need with his little friend who's only life was himself and about two friends. So he ditched me, and I realised that all of a sudden, he was popular, and despite the fact I'd helped him, I was not.

And this start in Year 7 is crucual. I failed my start. If you don't make a 'good' and 'cool' impression, then you're finished. I am already a lost cause, in many aspects.
This is where I come to my sister. Innocent, nieve, and thoughtful. Just like me. Just like the one I was. At the moment, seemingly with no social life. I see her at lunch, on her own, and when I ask her what she usually does, she replies "I go to the library and read my book, or go to a club".
Of course, there is really not that much wrong with this. But there is one thing. Friends? Chatting to people? What about socializing? I find myself telling her "Oh I saw tht person from your form over there" or something along those lines, just to get her talking to people!
And then yesterday, she was on Facebook, and a message pops up.
"Hello xxx"
I happen to be there, and she says to me "Oh look someone has sent me a chat message!"
"Hi" is her response, but before she has time to press the enter key, I slide in. "She sent you an 'xxx'. Send some back."
And this went on, with me guiding her through a conversation, telling her what she could say, and she was asking me "What can I say to that?" on more than one occasion.
I realize there is a motive behind this: I don't want her to be like me.
I want her to have friends, and lots of them. I want her to be able to go on Facebook, and have chat messages from friends popping up, texts on her phone, etc. I want her to have a social life! Not just a little circle like I do.
She Has To Be Popular. I have to help her, because with me as her sibling, she has not had guidance in being the coolest person.

So I ask you, am I doing the right thing? Am I really helping her? Or making her into a project. Because I really care about her.
