There is a line in popularity, which in case it is gone over, a celebrity can talk and do whatever he/she wants. Any of his actions will be taken by loyal fans to cheer. Even outright nonsense. In this drivel, they will seek and find a deep meaning and genius.
The same words uttered by an unknown newcomer will be laughed at and anathematized.
Not every novice likes it. However, as soon as he passes the coveted boundary, he/she begins to believe that this state of affairs is quite just.
