“I knew it was thrilling, but there has to be a limit before you lose control of your emotions and behavior.”
Have you ever crushed on a celebrity? Pinned their posters on your bedroom wall? Collect each and every magazine they appear in? Watch their movies and all of their shows? How far will you follow them?
I think in our life, even if it’s just once, there are those moments where a certain star has caught our attention wherein we follow their activities and try to stay updated with their lives. Nowadays, this is called, “fangirling”. But of course, there are also “fanboys”, is that called “fanboying”? (LOL)
“What possessed these girls – many of them grown women – to take the time out of their day to decorate poster board and stand along side a busy roadway? Do they actually think he may just stop one day?”
It’s every fan’s fantasy to be noticed by the one they idolize. As a fan of different bands, authors, celebrities and other persona myself, I follow their social media pages and if given the chance, try to watch their shows live and go to events they may be present in, and sometimes even come bearing gifts. However, there are those fans who turn over to the dark side and become stalkers. In Korea, there’s this term they use for fans who go overboard and are excessively obsessed with stars and usually Kpop idol groups and these fans are called Sasaeng fans.
Love Unscripted is one of those books which gives us a glimpse of the life of a superstar and their loved ones amidst all the chaos in their lives that’s caused by their rising fame. It’s fairly informative and cites pretty good examples on the pandemonium that goes with fame and fortune.
Knowing the feeling of being a fan, I was intrigued on how the story will pan out and seriously couldn’t put down the book. From simple heroine, to celebrity hero, to jealous exes and conniving bitches – yes, it has it all. However, it did drag on some parts of the book and could have saved a few pages to read since some were not that significant to the story.
