Ok ,I am back but only for a short while. So I will try to make it short and quick.
A fan is someone who has a strong interest or admiration for someone else or something.
What is obsession. When something preoccupies your mind continually to a troubling extent.
I guess its alright to be obsessed .. watch all an actor's movies .. gather millions of their photos .. follow their twitter or facebook .. and talk about them all the time. It might get annoying, but well when you are a teenager, its normal to find yourself to be drawn to actors or sportstars and what not.
But then again, how far will you go with this obsession? Cyber bullying, spamming co-stars and producers and channels, abusing call center employees or issuing death threats to co-stars is just unacceptable!
And then we have the case of non-teenagers. Where they get the time to obsess about someone who is not even involved in their life, I don't know! I rarely find time to obsess about myself .. that I need to make a schedule so that I can find time to eat and work out everyday!
Why do they do this? The only explanation I can think of .. especially online and on social networks is for attention. They have followers, people who listen to what they say and support them .. its a way to boost your ego. They might be lonely and unhappy in real life. Then there is the fun factor. I don't know who ever thought cursing others is fun, but then again people assume they can do anything as long as their real identity is hidden (which is not true).
People accuse me of obsessing over a certain actor.. because I criticize him. But I am not the one who made calls to channels and emailed producers multiple times every day for months .. I was working my ass off then!
But yeah I am a huge fan of myself and I obsess a lot about me. I wonder if that's normal
