It is no secret that the psychology of your basic pop -star relies upon the attention (possibly the adoration) of others. Without this adoration there is often nothing else…they feel that they would cease to exist without it. Privacy doesn’t exist and even tragedy is fodder for the audience. All is approval,… or you are fodder for the underside of the bus. Even facts have no merit unless they add to the adoration, and consensus is the only validation for their view of the world.
