Obsessed

Singer Mariah Carey's latest song "Obsessed" is great to look at how we talk about our interest in things and people.

The question that goes unanswered throughout the song is

Why (are) you so obsessed with me?

But instead of "obsessed with", we could use the adjectives crazy, mad, keen, addicted, hung up, to name a few.

We just have to be careful of those prepositions:

- obsessed with

- crazy about

- mad about

- keen on

- addicted to


- hung up on on
