Question by Jason Byrne: Who else finds it sad that celebrity gossip is part of pop culture (and why is it)?

Best answer:

Answer by carpenterskid
Because our personal lives are so boring. We stopped reading real literature and listening to real music and no one produces real theatre anymore. We have no imagination now, we rely on electronics for our next fix and allow our minds to atrophy. So we live vicariously though the antics of others. I turned the TV off and bought some books and am developing friendships with real people again.
