Human nature - the average joe is always fascinated by the lives of the rich and famous (used to be that was the nobility, now it is the trash that graces our television screens).

Also, I think people derive a certain amount of satisfaction out of the fact that no matter how priviledged those people are, they are just as messed up, usually more messed up, than we are - when you do not have that much money it is slightly gratifying to see that having money does not necessarily make you happy (wicked I know but true).

Also, as you say, focusing on the trivialities of celebrity lives is a nice escape from the mega problems facing the world and western society.
