When a public figure is the object of mass derision, he can divert this stream of negative attention to his daemon, away from his biological self. When we loathe an evil character in a film, it does not adversely affect the actor. Instead it augments the magical charisma of the fictional character, empowering its daemon. A show of public hostility to a politician can likewise augment his charisma if he knows how to protect himself.
Conversely when we idolize a pop star, we are usually pouring our vital attention towards the stage persona or alter-ego that he has crafted. It is common for artists to use a pseudonym, so that when attention is directed at his art (be it favorable or derisory) it is this alter-ego or daemon that is the beneficiary.
