Pop culture and the star cult belong together. Stars and fans be-long together. No stars without fans. No fans without stars, right? It may be a natural urgency of man to venerate another person with their esteem and love. Consider, veneration is quite different from worship. Some stars are compelled to be bearers of hope, are eagerly celebrated and even fanatically worshipped. Incidentally, this form of fanaticism is not rated as negative as fanaticism within a political context. Interestingly enough, the English term »fan« is derived from »fanatic«.

Star or shooting star, identity or within role, to be or not to be? Not to degenerate into a delusion, not to become a victim of system mechanisms and mass media, not to be degraded to a mere fanatic object and not to forget humanity, is probably one of the greatest challenges of any honorable star while being in his role.
