Okay, I'm a little angry right now so this is MUCH NEEDED.
It's time for another Tell Me Why!
That's right, this post is going to be the part of the "celebrity/band/musician" community that is harshly overlooked, but I'm about to shed light on you lil' nasties because today we are talking about... Groupies, Crazed Fans and Celebrity Stalkers! Goodie.
First off because it's relevant to my life, let's talk about why celebrity stalking is a thing. Please Buzznet peeps, I beg you to explain why people are so shallow and have nothing better to do with their time to the extent that every morning, they get up, log onto twitter and see what celebrity is in their area so they can go meet them. Maybe it's perhaps the lack of friendship or romantic relationship in their life but, either way...it's creepy. Let me firstly clarify to you guys and gals, that of COURSE you should be inclined to go meet your favorite celebrities, go to their hotel and stalk the hell out of them! I don't mind that, not in the slightest. But, when this escalates to you actually going out, and pursuing celebrities that you don't even like, giiiiirl (or occasional male) you need to stop and re-evaluate your life.
Also, if you're going to stalk the living hell out of a celebrity and then complain how they were being rude to you, meanwhile you were rude to them by invading their personal privacy, please re-evaluate your life as well. I think it's super cool when people have met all of their favorite celebrities and people who have saved their lives, all of their heroes.
But don't just do it to stalk because hey, stalking is creepy and you should stop that. Please.
So for this section, I want you to "Tell Me Why": Celebrity Stalkers Get Such A Rush From chasing down celebrities as a hobby?
Now that we've gotten that out of the way.
Let's move on to Groupies! In the concert community, groupies have been around since at least the 60's, notoriously sleeping with band members. If you slept with a band member back then, you were sort of like Penny Lane (except...ehem, she was not a groupie. She was a Band Aid.) but, now with the technology we have people feel the need to brag about it. (If you read Kate's post you know many people are selfish and only care about their benefit!)
So, the new 'trend' is these groupie blogs where girls make blogs to talk about all of the many band members they've banged and ACTUALLY give tips on how to get into band member's pants. You think I'm joking? Nope.
Girls, what has happened to humility in your fragile, obviously somewhat emotionally deprived lives?
Respect yourselves enough to have respect for everyone, and believe me when I say...nobody cares who you slept with (this applies to bands, and anyone in life) so, keep it to yourself.
So Tell Me Why: Do Groupies Brag About Their Dirty Lives?
Moving on to the most interesting of these three... crazed fans. In general fans of bands can be a little crazy, but...when is it too crazy? When you're jumping on stage at a concert, stealing things from band members, or have delusional thoughts that you actually own that band member's heart and life, you are officially a crazed fan.
Okay so the weirdest type of crazed fan is the kind that yell at band members girlfriends. I think sending death threats to anyone is absurb but, why on earth do you wish the one person in your favorite band members life that they are in love with, to have something bad happen to them?
So for Crazed fans, I want you to tell me why: Crazy fans think they have ownership over a band member?
These three "Tell Me Why" questions will tie into my next tell me why post which is "Tell Me Why: You Think It's Okay To Mistreat Famous People"
Thank you for reading my obscene and unorganized rant!
