    That's generally how I feel.

    Not really. Not any more than if it was a relative or acquaintance I barely knew. I'd be disappointed that they couldn't continue producing new material.

    It would depend on how and why they died. If it was a really sad way, like violent or suffering from an illness, I'd be sad for them and the people who were close to them; and if I knew of and liked this person a lot. If I wasn't familiar with them and they died that way I'd still be kind of sad for them but not as much. So I guess it would only affect me perse if there was some touching story to go along with the announcement and I read it.

    I felt kinda bad about Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston and others. They were people with talent whose lives became a convoluted mess, partly because of their own bad choices and partly because of some abusive crap they dealt with earlier in life; it's hard to tease out what caused what.

    It just seems a shame that such potential was tarnished and then lost... and not just that, but their lives themselves are gone now.

    We pay too much attention to the wrong celebrities in life; I prefer not to spoil them with attention in death, too.

    If they've had a meaningful positive impact or have produced great works, they deserve at least some reverence. It's less sad when they've been able to pass the torch on to others, though.

    Looks like a few Steves have died recently. Stephen Covey's death deserved at least as much attention as Steve Jobs's.

    Also, what @Jennifer said about the tragic stories behind some of those massively-publicized deaths.

    Can't be answered in the general case. Once in a while one of them will affect me (Steve Jobs comes to mind). Usually not.

    The day Wilford Brimley dies will be depressing.

    I'm afraid he may have touched a lot of young people. D:

    I don't think that this is type-dependent. I think it just shows how our society is horribly addicted to celebrities.

    This. If someone like Snooki died I wouldn't really care, but if one of my favorite singers died I'd probably be sad.

    ...Not that I'm actually wishing death on Snooki
