Escapism Lifestyle Fascination

I don’t understand this fascination with the culture that I grew up. It is all over the mainstream media. Living a life with a parent or two parents that are heavily into drugs and partying rather than being parents is such a challenge. Having different brothers and sisters from various parents and steps gets confusing, are they still your brother after my dad and their mom divorce?

People are complicated. I feel like it’s glorifying this lifestyle, or perhaps its just trying to shed light into it, I’m not sure. All I know is that it’s very weird to me seeing that I could easily be one of those characters watched on the tube.
