Lets take Dylan Obrien for example. I love him and i obsess over him, but really he's just a guy. If he wasn't a celeb i wouldn't know who he is. There are guus at my school who are extremely hot but i dont obsess over them. So what is it about celebs that make people go crazy over them.

Several factors working together. His distance makes him a safe object to obsess over. Young women's brains are flooded with chemicals which make them want to do this but at the same time they are afraid. A guy they can release all that energy on safely is a relief. Women, again especially young ones, find a guy more attractive if other women are perceived as finding him attractive. The marketers of celebrity know this and try to promote their product in this way, to stir up a frenzy. Finally since you don't really know him, you only see him in the best light and your imagination fills up the rest of the image he has the advantage of no 'feet of clay'.1
