Wanting to Be Famous

We are now hearing about the full extent of horrific sexual abuse of children committed by Ian Watkins, former front-man of Alternative Welsh rock band the Lostprophets. Watkins was admired and celebrated by his fans, many of them young underage girls, and it has emerged how he exploited his celebrity status for his own sexual gratification.

This has got me thinking about the harm celebrity worship can bring. We follow their every move on Twitter and Instagram, and we read endless stories about their love lives or look at pictures of them being papped at the supermarket looking hungover or wearing no make-up.
