The other side, however, argues that celebrity worship is detrimental to the mental and physical wellbeing of the adolescents. It is important to understand what celebrity worship entails, the different tests in place used to measure it, and the effect practicing celebrity worship can have on an adolescent to full realize how harmful engaging in celebrity worship really is.
