There are superstars who ooze charisma – stars like Jack Nicholson, Marilyn Monroe and Johnny Depp. Then, alas, there are the stuporstars. With forgettable good looks and plank-like personas they having been sending the discerning movie-goers and music fans into a catatonic state for many years and it is likely there will never be any escape. These people always seem to get lead roles and record deals. Blandness sells!
Ben Affleck, Jude Law, Keanu Reeves, Bono, Phil Collins, Katie Holmes, Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Ronan Keating, Dido, David Gray, Ewan McGregor are some of the many stuporstars inflicted on the long-suffering public.
Bob Dylan was waiting to go on stage after a set by Neil Diamond, (musician and stuporstar)who on passing Bob, said proudly "Follow that!". Dylan replied by stating that he would go onstage and go to sleep.
