Writer's Block: Star struck

Why do people care so much about the private lives of celebrities? Is it idol worship, schadenfreude, or something entirely different?

I think it's because people have dull lives so following the lives of celebrities, even or especially the scandals, is a form of escapism. Then again, I can't be sure of the reasons as I never got into that mindset myself.
