The stars in our eyes : the famous, the infamous, and why we care way too much about them
"Why celebrities fascinate us, what it means to be famous today, and why celebrities are so important. Julie Klam brings her infectious curiosity and crackling wit to the topic of celebrity. As she admits, "I've always been enamored with celebrities," be they movie stars, baseball players, TV actors, and now Internet sensations. "They are the us we want to be." Celebrities today have a global presence and can be, Klam writes, "some girl on Instagram who does nude yoga and has 3.5 million followers, or a Korean rapper who posts his videos that are viewed millions of times." What makes someone a celebrity, why we care about celebrities more than ever, and the bargains they make with the public and the burdens they bear to sustain this status. Julie Klam is the author of You Had Me at Woof, Love at First Bark, Friendkeeping, and Please Excuse My Daughter. She lives in New York City."--Provided by publisher.
