I can't say with any certainty that I understand where this plot is going. Like Phonogram, we've got rock stars who believe they've ascended to divine status. Unlike Phonogram, maybe they actually have. I have never liked the thought of musicians being seen as anything other than creative human beings. I have always had a problem with celebrity and a disgust of idolization. I can appreciate creative work and envy their talent but I don't understand the state of celebrity. I've met my share of rockstars in my 20s and I didn't really get what all the hub bub was about. They're just people. That being said, I like this commentary on the vanity of pop stars and how their fans treat them - like gods. My sincere hope, is that this story comes off less hostile towards women.
