|Title:||Extreme celebrity worship, fantasy proneness and dissociation: Developing the measurement and understanding of celebrity worship within a clinical personality context|

|Abstract:||Two studies considered clinical personality correlates of celebrity worship. In Study 1, factor analysis of the Celebrity Attitude Scale suggested an improved measure of a three-dimensional model of celebrity worship. In Study 2 this model was examined within a clinical personality context. Celebrity worship for intense-personal reasons was significantly correlated with fantasy proneness, and celebrity worship for borderline-pathological reasons was significantly correlated with fantasy proneness and dissociation. The present findings show how intense and higher levels of celebrity worship can be considered within clinical personality dimensions.|
