look up any word, like smh:
Similar to selective memory. Caused by either the death of a celebrity or the launch of someone into celebrity status.

Celebrective memory in death

Celebrective memory in stardom
Jeremy Lin prestardom: "wtf who's that Asian guy on the warriors?"

Jeremy Lin poststardom: " honestly, Lin is already on the level of Kobe and wade. You could tell he had something all along, but he just let it loose."
