Celebrities have a special way of impacting our lives and this is what makes them so interesting to us. It’s actually quite amazing how attached we get to celebrities even though we haven’t met them at least once in our lives. The fact that they are always on our TV screens makes it feel like we know them personally just like we do with our friends. This is the reason why entire nations mourn when a famous person dies.
Famous people might have all the privileges in the world but in the end, they go the same way as everyone.
