Summary
"Celebrity fascinates and enrages us. We are simultaneously drawn to it and annoyed by the growing impact it has on our lives. From popular culture to sports to politics, the rise of celebrities and our growing appetite for them has become a near-obsession. Love them or hate them, celebrities and celebrity are everywhere. In The Stars in Our Eyes, bestselling author Julie Klam explores the many facets of celebrity: what it is, why it attracts us, and why that matters. What she learns is enlightening and alarming, eye-opening and entertaining. Once the province of the accomplished--the rich, the powerful, and the talented--celebrity and its rules today are volatile and shifting daily. Movie stars, once the gold standard of celebrity, are being nudged aside by reality-TV participants, sex-tape entrepreneurs, and wannabe YouTube stars. As our attention spans shorten, more of us than ever are grasping tor our chance at fame. With insight and humor, Klam dives deep into the murky waters of celebrity to help us understand this cultural tsunami. Along the way she explains what makes a celebrity, examines the challenges and opportunities that confront them, and speaks to celebrities who've had to contend with fame. The result is a perceptive, funny, and eye-opening book that holds up a mirror to our fixation with celebrity as it reflects fundamental truths about who we really are."--Jacket
