They say that celebrities are not born but rather made. Stars are people who often appear on the screen of our TV, the ones we read about in the newspapers, and whom we follow on social networks.

they have the wealth and space to put the statues. But for an ordinary fan,
they can settle for other alternatives to take with them. Fortunately,
