Celebrity obsession, has it happened to you and what did you do about it?

Asked by gottamakeart (1323points) November 10th, 2009

I’m pretty sure I’m becoming obsessed with a certain French porn star/artist with a scalp tattoo, But I promised myself I’d stop dropping his name in nearly all my answers on here. (been doing it for 2 days now) Its like a major crush, any suggestions on how to get over it, or do you suppose it will just have to run its course?

Let it run it’s course, but be aware that not everyone gives a crap – or wants to hear about it. :)
A lot of us have these phases, you’ll get past it.

I had a friend who worked at Pixar, and got into an early private screening of Toy Story 2. Sitting a few rows from me was Robin Williams.
After the movie, I ran into him at the theater arcade (he was giving quarters to his kids).
I walked up, trying to be cool, and totally gushed at how great I thought he was. I was so embarassed afterwards.

Well I don’t think anyone was ever really obsessed with me (not that I know of) and I was never really a celebrity anyway. But it’s nice when people come up after a show and tell you they like your music, or that they saw you 4 years ago in another town or something.

@asmonet, lurve for a great answer! @gottamakeart, it happens more than people want to admit. Enjoy his work, journal your fantasies about him, and ride it out.

@filmfann I met my very favorite actor of all time after a show he was in, and did exactly what you did with Robin Williams. I was embarrassed for weeks, I still cringe when I think about it!

@SuperMouse: Thanks!
I met one of my favorite stand up comedians and besides a rambling story about sleepwalking – WHICH HE ASKED FOR I’LL HAVE YOU KNOW – all I could muster was:

There are a few famous people that I am in great awe of but I wouldn’t say that I have ever been obsessed with a famous person to the point where it was affecting my life.

Having said that, I did spend over £700 to see Barbra Streisand in concert and when I think about it, only an obsessed fan would spend that amount of money on their favourite “celebrity”! It was worth every penny though!
