Do you ever dream about being a famous singer, movie star or a famous athlete? Most people do but do they really know what it’s really like to be famous? There is plenty of evidence to support the argument of fame sometimes being a nightmare.
First of all, being famous means loss of privacy. All over the media there’s pictures and information from celebrities holidays, weddings, birthdays and big nights out. The paparazzi hunt down celebrities until, like in the case of Princess Diana, someone gets hurt. Paparazzi aren’t the only people celebrities have to watch out for. Because most people have a phone with a camera on it, it is easier to get an embarrassing picture to the media!
Celebrities are also expected to be good role models. AFL players are pressured to be good role models for kids all over Australia when normally their just ordinary guys who have a talent for kicking a ball. When MileyCyrus was caught drinking a smoking bong, parents all over the world stopped buying her CD’s and clothes because they didn’t want their kids having her as a role model. Sometimes celebrities crack under the pressure and turn to drugs and alcohol.
We alway’s see photos of celebrities having a great time followed up by pictures of the same person drunk, smoking or on drugs. Why is that? Celebrities have the money, the giant houses and, of course, the fame but when the cameras stop rolling, their not really that happy. People always say that to be happy you have to have the perfect body, face and clothes but sometimes celebrities wreak their bodies in the process. A lot of the time celebrities crack under the pressure of being a happy, beautiful, rich person and that’s why we read stories about good celebrities gone bad.
In conclusion, being a celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up tobe and maybe the celebrities should be jealous of the normal people.
