We are a celebrity obsessed society. Aggressive paparazzi and TMZ are admittedly terrible things that exist in our world today, but they continue to remain profitable for a reason. We live in a time when children aspire to be famous, not for any reason in particular, but simply to have name recognition. Our focus on popularity regardless of relevant credentials is reaching a level of nauseating proportions. If we cannot have the fame we at least want to be fame-adjacent, getting high off of mere proximity. This sickness most readily infects the youth of society causing more than a few to fear for our future. The Bling Ring looks directly at a posse of these fame-obsessed adolescents but doesn’t manage to say anything new on the topic.
