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
