When someone reaches a certain level of fame, we stop viewing them as a person. The constant presence of their image—in the news, in conversations surrounding it and in pop culture at large— makes them feel less like a human being who once came out of their mom and yawned through fifth period maths class like the rest of us, and more like a brand; a symbol or slogan that stands for something beyond themselves. The delirious love felt for artists from La Dispute to One Direction has birthed a massive amount of positive change on a personal level how many times have you heard someone say an artist “saved” their life , as well as some pretty weird but ultimately harmless behaviour, like the time that girl hid in a bin just to catch a glimpse of Niall Horan. But it also has a dark side. Last year, Justin Bieber quit Instagram for six long, dark months and said he wouldn’t be taking photos with fans anymore, writing that things had “gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognise me as a human. All of which is to say: the exposure that comes with fame can leave someone open to harm, fandom is not always positive, and—because the extreme end of it is so often bound up in mental health issues—the underbelly is rarely addressed well, if it’s addressed at all. The most dramatic cases often appear in the media presenting fans as faceless offenders—”crazed” and “psychotic”—inherently pushing aside any context to their lives beyond their relationship to the celebrity. In , for example, year-old Paula Goodspeed—a Paula Abdul “fanatic”—was found dead in her car having overdosed near Abdul’s house not long after her audition on American Idol was torn to bits. Many of the reports characterized her as a ” celebrity stalker ,” which her relatives disputed. General discourse has only just begun to scratch the surface of mental health problems faced by musicians, exacerbated by fame, but the more obsessive end of fandom is often polarized as valueless or violent with no nuance in between, or empathy on either side.
