Even Celebs Have Lost Their Souls To Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Starbucks' seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte is polarizing. Some say it is the gateway drug of autumnal pumpkin-flavored edibles: According to a Nielsen report, pumpkin-flavored sales increased 14 percent in 2013. Americans spent $308 million on pumpkin-flavored drinks, candies and the like.

Others can't imagine fall without it. Included in this latter category are a bunch of celebrities who could afford their own personal pumpkin spice barista if they wanted, but nevertheless waited, like a layperson, for the timely release of the drink. Singers, actors and reality TV stars alike seem hypnotized by the orange sugar sipper that contains no pumpkin at all:

Pete Wentz, for one, wants to start a club about PSL -- for men. Katy Perry could hardly wait for Starbucks to unleash the PSL.

Lucky for her, Starbucks released PSLs one month early.

Taylor Swift is SO Taylor Swift about PSL. Kristin Cavallari loves PSL so much she blacks out every fall. PSL makes Pixie Lott feel all nostalgic. PSL causes Brittany Snow to craft a tweet with the eloquence of a third grader attempting to write poetry for the first time.
