Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana) obsessed fan Mark McLeod arrested in Georgia on June 23 reports TMZ.com! Yes, a very disturbed man Mark McLeod, who’s 53, was arrested for disorderly conduct by police, but during this process, made very disturbing comments about the pop star Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), allegedly claiming (quite emphatically) that he and her were to be together, and that the singer told him to see her. Mark McLeod allegedly claimed to have mailed two $2,000 diamond rings to Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), just to name a few of the obsessive-stalking behaviors, which the LAPD is now aware of, but not currently pursuing the matter. Pop stars have a dangerous occupational hazard: super-obsessed fans. But fans need to get this into their heads: you have no chance with these celebrities! Stop over-obsessing about such projections of the media.
More About Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana) Obsessed Fan Mark McLeod Being Arrested In Georgia: Celebrities Are Projections of the Media!
I’m sure most people are affected to some degree by pop culture. We give time to some TV shows, music, and movies which helps make life more bearable. And meeting the person or people who have had that kind of influence on us is a treat when it happens, such as with a book signing, horror or sports-related convention, or fatefully on the street.
Celebrities like Miley Cyrus have handlers, and run in a different crowd, and you can only get so close to them, which really isn’t that close on a personal level. Those of you who are obsessed with celebrities need to realize that they are probably never ever going to be in a position to meet and actually get to really know you like you might with the people you come to know in your work, your church or synagogue, your leisure activities, etc. Even the stars who marry “no name” people do so because they meet their partners at exclusive parties or through a mutual friend more often than not. Most of us “little people” don’t run in those circles, like the circles of Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana) and other pop stars. So from a common sense stand point, people need to direct their thoughts and energies elsewhere. Even those who send their favorite stars birthday cards and little gifts through the mail need to realize that many of the celebrities never even look at them, as they let their staff sift the stuff out. Why not direct your gifts to lonely veterans or shut ins in hospitals or nursing homes if you’re so into sending niceties to strangers? Those people are even accessible and would appreciate it more.
This man Mark McLeod and others who are super obsessed with celebrities are often very disturbed human beings and really go overboard, but normally don’t get anywhere close to the object of their obsession, and when they do, they get arrested.
And here’s another thing to keep in mind about pop stars like Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana): these people are projections of the media, which isn’t totally real because media projections don’t give a full picture. Celebrities are merely people who fart, have bad breath in the morning, get sweaty, who look not so great when they have a bad cold, who can feel and act bitchy at times, etc. Those fans who are obsessed with Michael Jackson, ask yourself this: would you really have liked to be around a man on a daily basis who could basically only function while on a litany of drugs?
When I was a kid, I once asked my dad if he felt bad because he wasn’t famous. I’ll never forget what he said. He said his fame came from having us in his family (my mom, my brother, and me). He never became a household name like Miley Cyrus with her Hannah Montana act, but he worked hard for many years as a truck driver which put food on the table and a roof over our heads. That’s what real fame is. It’s not hob-nobbing with Hannah Montana. Think about it.
