Are you a ‘famous’ snob?

I learned something new today. It’s called “Are you a ‘famous’ snob? I asked the person to explain it to me after they made me aware of the phrase.

I explained everyone has their favorite ‘whatever’.

What it means is the type of person who pays nothing and I mean absolutely nothing attention if it doesn’t involve a famous person. 

Here’s the bulletins sent me:

1. You’ll only read a book, magazine or article if a celebrity suggested it, is in it or it is about them. All books must be written by a famous author. No matter inspiring a quote you read maybe, if not said or written by a ‘famous’ person you quickly move on.

2. You’ll only listen to music if the singer or performer is famous.

3. You’ll only watch a movie if it is a star spangled one. A least two stars must already be famous.

4. You’ll wear clothing only if certain famous person is wearing that style at the moment. And will bankrupt yourself if you must to achieve the look.

5. You actively seek out and look for only ‘famous’ posts to click ‘like’ online.

6. You’ll only forward a post if it is written by a famous person or about a famous person.

7. You mimic the famous unto the point of snapping pictures of your meals, inside your home, your pets, your children with no regard for their safety by placing them online for who knows who to see them. Never mind you don’t have personal bodyguards and if anything happens to them or you it won’t make world news.

8. You’ll select a pet based upon the animal a famous person is seen sporting.

9. You’re obsessed with celebrities. You live your life through them. The obsession doesn’t strictly apply to living celebrities. Deceased ones are included also. A person must be famous to get your attention regarding anything. A homeless person dying in the street is trivial to you unless a famous person called it to your attention.

10. You place famous people on a pedestal. Granting them a god like status and you’re completely devastated when or if you discover they’re humans just like everyone else on the planet.

11. Your political views aren’t your own. It’s whatever the famous people support. Then, so do you.

12. You find groups as equally as nuts as yourself and expects everyone to worship the famous and gets angry if they don’t.

The last one was sort of funny but I don’t believe I know anyone this obsessed with the famous.

The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. After reading the list..I can’t help but wonder how does ‘famous snobs’ keeps up with what’s going on in their community? What about something like a major disaster? A storm evacuation is not going to be announced by a famous person. To narrow one’s views to such small alley seems somewhat dangerous to me.

    Online and my neighborhood is filled with ‘famous snobs.’ They are shallow as a saucer. Many won’t date a person if they don’t look a certain way, act a certain way, sound a certain way, say certain supposedly things, or have certain color hair. Not that that’s a problem because most people won’t date them either. They have to date each other because only another like themselves can stand to be around them. You have no idea how annoying it is to talk to one of these people. It’s like being around a bunch of pre-teens and these people are often in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
    Now, when they start getting crazy they will hurt you about that person. We are seeing a live example of it with this presidency. These people worship that man and he know it.

    • Yes, I have seen overly zealous people when they are going to a concert, play, or performance but once it’s over. The person goes about their daily life as usual. I don’t believe I have ever seen anyone obsessed to this degree with anyone. I have heard of it but it’s usual when they sort to kill the person of their admiration or have taken their life.

  3. Being made aware of it existence, I decided to do more research on this disorder now that I know it exist. I learned that if not curbed and one is steered toward a healthy admiration of their favorite celebrity or whomever as time progresses, it can grow into a form of dementia where the person can no longer distinguish reality from fiction and some grow to believe they are that person.

    I haven’t enclosed half of what I read in the medical journal. Most of it didn’t cast a bright light on this condition but it did say it isn’t caused my physical ailments. It’s most likely caused by low esteem, it can be used a defense mechanism in dealing with trauma and depression. It’s how the person makes themselves feel better about themselves.

    That was the first definition, the second one boils down to the person is just fill of themselves. There’s nothing emotional wrong with them but if they continues on this avenue for years there will eventually be something wrong.
