I've written an article about this phenomenon for MSN SA.

"I don't really know what it is about celebrities that adoring fans all over the world love.

I am not much of a celebrity fan myself, but still find I have a mysterious attraction to the flawless and stunning images of celebrities on the cover of fashion magazines, or the "fat", "ugly" and scandalised images of those in magazines such as Heat and People – I can’t help but look.

I am strong enough to resist it most of the time, but I do find myself reading up on gossipy headlines the more bored I am".

I would love to know what you think!
