Celebrity culture

Interesting article I bumped into while searching for Fame vs. credit / recognition:

New York Metro: (Celebrity Culture); "Celebrities and fame - Micheal Jackson - ...more"

Quote: "Celebrity culture has done this to him. And, so, by extension, have we."

In Switzerland, celebrity culture seems to be somewhat sane and relatively down to earth so far...

In The Netherlands... Not so sure... people tend to be critical of fame. It's sometimes even frowned upon.
