Celebrities, Their Fans, and Social Media

Posted Oct 24 2016 in , , , ,

I have a confession to make…  I, a grown woman, have crushes on celebrities just like I did when I was twelve years old.  Okay, maybe not entirely like I did when I was twelve. I don’t hang their posters over my bed. I don’t doodle their last name with my first one all over […]
