What does the death of a Celebrity mean to us?
How does the death of a celebrity affect us?
Technically, it does not affect us. What happens is a perceived notion of loss creeps into our minds. For much like the loss of Michael Jackson, this came completely out of the blue, and in such a manner that had it been an orchestrated plot, it would not have been this good. In a “live by the gun, die by the gun” methodology, Paul Walker met his end ironically via vehicular accident.
These people exist in their own world, and we in our own, and ever so often we invite them into our homes through Youtube, the Internet, Movies etc. They exist only when we turn on the media, and disappear as soon as we turn it off. However, knowing that they are there provides us with a sense of comfort, a deluded ideology of control in that whenever we choose we can invite them back into our lives and find out the latest news they have to offer.
No doubt several people were privy to the knowledge that the Fast & Furious franchise was being extended by another 3 titles, with locations such as Dubai and Egypt being mentioned as possibilities for the future.
It is not the death of one man, nor the death of a celebrity, that has people expressing emotion. It is the fact that we slowly realize how not in control we are of life. We live each day like it is a string of days, no one gives a second thought to the possibility, no matter how infinitesimal it may seem, that we might not wake up tomorrow, or that we wake up to find that someone else has passed away, god forbid a loved one.
Here is a character that will never again appear in an interview, or in a movie.
The people are not mourning Paul Walker, they mourn what his death represents, and that is the grim fact that the only thing promised in life…
