To dream about being famous is one thing but fantasizing about being famous or wanting to be with the famous is another. How does a fan develop an unhealthy obsession? How does a fan reach that point? I found that there are three levels of obsession. The fan, the groupie and the stalker. These three levels brought me to the conclusion that there are thousands of websites and magazines producing daily photos of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood, not only are fans pasting these clippings to their walls, but researching the celebrities to find more personal information. Information that leads to invaded privacy and stalking.
