Is our obsession with celebrity videos and culture going too far

One school of thought is that our desire for discovering the dirty secrets of celebrities is a form of escapism from our own lives - especially if scandal is involved, then it somehow makes us feel better about ourselves. The Germans even have a word for this - they call it 'Schadenfreude' - taking pleasure from another persons misfortune.
