When it comes to being a fan of something fangirls are the tops in all out support of the stuff they like. With that being said what about fanboys? Are they as giddy? What if you are a dude who is more excited about their stuff than lets say their gender peers? Can you be a male “fangirl”?

When a celebrity passes away

Standard

It is sad when anyone passes away. Each person is a creation of God and has great worth to him and the world. Celebrities whether good or bad have a way of making our lives a little more colorful. 

Today Donna Summer passed away and it got me to thinking about when a famous person passes away that a little part of us dies with them. When Elvis passed away there was a world wide vigil for the King of Rock and Roll, the same happened when Michael Jackson left the world a couple of years ago. Princess Diana’s passing impacted her famous former family but the world too. Our reaction to the death of a famous person can tell a lot about us. Many people have a investment of their hearts when it comes to the famous people in our culture.

Celebrities are human beings, sons and daughters and have families who hurt way more than any of their fans could hurt. The media has a way of feasting on the tragedy that comes with the death of a celeb. An example of this is when Whitney Houston passed away. Now comes word that the Houston family will be in a reality show.

As fans we feel the loss of famous people too. We sometimes live through them in a fanboy or fangirl sort of way. Celebs are put on a pedestal and when their death comes in a suspicious manner it shatters our view of them as being immortal. Their work will live on through TV, movies, recordings, music, pictures, blogs and the like. Their gift to the world can keep on giving and should remind us to use our gifts to make the world a better place.
