Question by Mike Keenan: Why can’t celebrity gossip fans admit that they need better things to do that don’t help them kill brain cells?

Best answer:

Answer by Dead Unicorn
People love being distracted from their miserable lives by comparing them to other people’s miserable lives. Instead, they should probably get to know themselves better. That takes work and self searching and it’ not particularly comfortable at times. So they choose to be miserable and stupid and eventually the only joy is at the expense of others. Celebrity gossip preys on this.
