I think it's because they live a life so different from ours. We have our everyday life, live mainly with the same people and for most of us it's not possible to "break out". And all things that have to do with the life of a rockstar seem to be exciting, different, great and so on. Basically it's the illusion we fall in love with don't you think?

yeah, that's a good explanation songbird and that's also my feeling. But personaly, I do always feel a bit guilty to have such feelings towards artists because I don't know them. How is that possible to fall in love of someone you don't know ? Isn't that weird, specially when you already live with someone ? think I'm a bit lost... blush

Please, don't feel lost! hug
Maybe it's better to say that we have a crush on someone famous than actually to be in love...
Those rockstars are looking great because they have many people that care about their appearance, they have a certain image and work hard to keep it alive, but we're just seeing the outcome which is mainly looking easy and good-to-have. They are able to make us feel happy and comfortable while listening to their music or watching them on a concert. We're feeling understood in their songs and we love the idea of "look at me, if I can do this, you're also able to".
And I think there's not just one specific kind of love - you're in love with your parents, your pet, your job, so why not feel another kind of love towards an artist?

i think it is because we don t know them in private life so we imagine how they could be and it is a fantasme, and we need that in our life
we need to leave the reality and the stars cannot disapoint us

anyway it is the way i see the life and our love for them

Absolutely true damian-ben-the-best! We need to escape from our ordinary lifes and we cristallize our dreams and desires on stars... They represent all what we are not, play the role of friends we'd like to have or meet, are perfect lovers (in our imagination of course!). They manage to live from their passion and to blossom thanks to that... which I think is one of the biggest wish of ordinary people...

Does that mean we're unable to be happy of what we've got ? Do really happy people share such feelings? That would be interesting to know...

expatriatelover, I don't think that we're generally unable to be happy of what we've got. It's quite philosophical, but all the great achievements of mankind would not have been able if everyone was happy with the status quo and nobody would do any effort to achieve something more. So it's in our nature to analyze our life at any time. But yes, at some point you should also be satisfied and thankful for what you've got and don't question everything as long as you feel good in this situation.

Meghan I like when things try to be a little higher! grin And I think that's interesting trying to think about more intellectual or philosophical subjects! We don't have much opportunity to do that in everyday life (well, that's not my case!) so why not trying this here! laughing When I was in final year of secondary school, I wasn't good in Philosophy because I think I hadn't the maturity for this. Now I'm almost 30, I feel more concerned and more able for this. And also because I have time to think about it (I finished my studies some years ago so I can let my spirit talking nonsense! lmao).

Songbird You wrote "all the great achievements of mankind would not have been able if everyone was happy with the status quo and nobody would do any effort to achieve something more." and I totally agree with that! smile

i don't think being happy with your life and what you've got keeps you from making achievements and investing in your life etc. i mean i think i'm one of the happiest persons alive ever and i wouldn't want to change my life for anything or anyone EVER! not because i have a perfect life and have everything i could ever ask for but cause it makes me who i am! i wouldn't even WANT to have everything i want cause what would be the point in life? apart from the fact that the more you have the more you want to have and you will never really be able to be 100% happy with your life. you should appreciate what you have and not long for the things you can't (or don't) have.

Neon "i don't think being happy with your life and what you've got keeps you from making achievements and investing in your life" I agree with that too 'cause I believe in virtuous circle, that is to say the more you're happy and feel well in your head, the more you're able to be creative and improve your life. It's like a spiral pushing you upwards.
And you're absolutely true when you say you wouldn't change anything of your life 'cause it makes who you are... I totally agree ! As far as I'm concerned, I'm not dreaming about being very rich, having big houses, big boats or big cars! I don't care about that! This is not life for me but i think the main problem we've got in western countries (supposed to be the most developped ones...) is that we are totally dependent on money... We are in a system where it is impossible to escape from, unless you decide to retire from it and then you're marginalized. If you have no money or few, it is very difficult to live with dignity.
Even when you don't want to follow the movement, you are quickly laid aside... I have a very simple example: I bought my first cellular phone 3 months ago 'cause I had no use of it before BUT you have no idea of how people were looking at me! shock I was a curious beast! wondering They could not understand why I had no cellphone! See what I mean ? If you are not IN, then the society take care to remind you what you have to do if you don't want to be thrown out! annoyed That's not fair but that the way it is!

Expatriatelover " See what I mean ? If you are not IN, then the society take care to remind you what you have to do if you don't want to be thrown out! That's not fair but that the way it is!"
I see what you meant and I totally agree with you...
In that way, we can think that the world (especially western countries) is not open minded at all...
When I was younger, I read a book about what you said : when you are IN or OUT and regrettably it exists.

Neon "you will never really be able to be 100% happy with your life. you should appreciate what you have and not long for the things you can't (or don't) have."
I agree with you too. However we can dream a little grin

@neon: i agree with u aswell. but... how can you grow, or make any progresses in life if you dont long for things you dont have? of course u have to appreciate what u've got.. but if i say "i dont need more" .. then there is no way to get more,.... there is a kind of indiffernce, isnt there?
