A devastating social disorder where a person wants to achieve celebrity without any work. Symptoms present themselves in: the desire to be famous (or becoming famous) for doing absolutely nothing, entitlement issues, excessive Twitter activity; amassing an army of facebook friends for no particular purpose (i.e. showingcasing one's art, reel, portfolio, etc.) other than to garner attention. The sufferer is often deluded by the idea that one can be "made" a celebrity if enough people follow or friend them. Other signs of the disorder can include creating and/or "leaking" your own sex tape, public photos without underwear, inability to form or maintain genuine relationships, the title of "socialite", and rich parents who might have actually accomplished something in their lifetime.
Dr. Kibblesauce: Celebritism is becoming rampant among today's youth...a crippling disorder my research shows to have originated with Paris Hilton and mutated in Kim Kardashian. It is also closely associated with Los Angelism.

John (on Twitter): Yay! I'm up to 3442 friends on facebook!
Jane: Dude, you gotta tone down the celebritism...you only know 42 of them!

Meg (tweeting about her dog): Apparently Cherie's surgery went really well. (Thank goodness!!) She's in recovery now. #getwellsooncherie
Guy: Who the fu©k cares?? God, I wanna smack that bitch then go eat a cheeseburger.

Celebritism is a lifestyle on wants to achieve, a lifestyle portrayed in media. Includes, spending lots of money, going on fad diets, and hurting people to get their face in the cameras shot.

Some people hide the fact that they are Celebritist, because of their schemes to get themselves famous.
But some openly admit, it through song, action, and word.
Some people (like me) consider the form of open Celebritism a good thing.
Britney Flickinger (Paris Hilton's my new BFF Season 1 winner) had a serious case of Celebritism, the kind where you hide it for your own agenda. She had it so bad she was willing to lie to Paris Hilton, and all the other castmates to win.

Lady Gaga, is now very famous but in her songs, she mentions, fame, sex, and alcohol, 3 main ingredients of a Celebritists' diet.

The rated view that the general public has of a celebrity, or the view that a person has of themselves whether they actually are a celebrity or just the personal feeling that they are.
Celebritism is often the supreme consideration by celebrities when they try to figure out if they are or are still "relevant" to the general public or media.
Gilbert Godfried's celebretism requires him to mock the Japanese during the recent earthquake/tsunami/nuclear meltdown.

I've got to Google myself to see my current celebritism.

The celebritism of this guy is insane, who does he think he is?
