Why obssessed with Jessica Simpson

I'm having lots of trouble understanding why people in this country are so obsessed with people like Jessica Simpson and other Hollywood celebrities. We follow Eva Longoria and that Spurs player's every romantic move, and the local paper joyously announced they're getting hitched. Simpson is cute, but so are puppies.
What's the big deal about following movie stars around like they're gods and goddesses.
Are our own lives so dull and boring that we've got to grasp at any piece of a famous person we see?
Personally, I have few cares whether Brad Pitt is boinking Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie, or whose baby they've adopted this week.
It just don't matter in the grand scheme of things.
And I prefer those stories about Alien kidnappers resurrecting Elvis, or the birth of a three-headed, cloven-hoofed zombie baby.
I want to see more of those stories.
Who Jessica Simpson is dating - or not - this week is not interesting.

She looks so hungry. Personally, I can't function without meals. The interesting thing about these people is how they get through the day without food not who they screw.
