During the news on TV last night they showed the huge crowds, and lines of people at the funeral or viewing of Lisa Marie Presley. I couldn't help but think "What are all those people doing there?". I bear her no ill will, in fact I think that this woman never had a chance at a normal life just by being the daughter of a world famous celebrity. Her multiple marriages only added to the evidence of what a distorted reality she must have lived in. But she herself was not a celebrity, I think, unless just being the daughter of a famous person makes one a celebrity in their own right. What would motivate seemingly normal people to wait in a long line, carrying a photo of Ms. Presley, to see her body or even to just show up at the spectacle of her funeral? I'm 79 and have witnessed the passing of many people that I have admired or respected, from all aspects of our society, but I have never personally traveled to be in the funeral event for any of these since none of them were in my personal circle nor me in their's. So I truly do not understand what drives people, even if they live nearby to where such an event is taking place, to have such an interest in the death of this woman as to want to be a part of her funeral. I welcome any remarks which might give me some understanding of this weird dynamic.
