Obsessions with musical icons has always been such a predominant thing in the history of the known world. As far back as records go, there was always a standout musical talent or act that caught the hearts and minds of the people of the generation. Like anything else that stretches so far back into the past, it is a social phenomenon that has only continued to grow. In this day and age we have young girls self-harming for the sake of proving a point simply because one particular member of a boy band decided that the life of a young star was way too much for him to handle, so I think I’m safe to say it’s reached somewhat of a destructive point.
