If being famous is really that great, then why did Justin Bieber start out having chart topping hits and having sold out concerts at 16. Then became older and is know getting in trouble for everything like being arrested for drunk driving, has been charged with vandalism, and he has bailed on multiple shows. All of the fame and fortune you get from being a celebrity is truly not worth it.
When becoming famous you get followed around almost everyday, and you only get some privacy or time to yourself. “Famous people can’t so much as walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed.” Also if someone were to become famous then they wouldn’t be able to tell who their real friends are, if they are truly friends or if they just want to be friends because of the fame. “It can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends.” “Stars have to wonder if their “friends” even like them for who they are or for what they have.” When you become famous and get in trouble for something then the whole world will know in about 2-3 days.
When getting followed around this means that the paparazzi will follow you around taking pictures of you and, wanting to talk to you about what you’re going to do. Famous people can’t tell who their real friends are, if they just want to be friends with you because you’re famous or they want to be friends with you not because of your fame. When a famous person gets into trouble this means that the paparazzi will most likely be there following you around and they can catch you getting in trouble, and then they can put it anywhere in the media so, that it will spread quickly. Or the paparazzi can make something up about you getting into trouble when you really didn’t just because they don’t have anything else to post on social media and so that there’s more gossip about you.
Yes, fame and fortune can make you happy because it comes with awesome perks. Such as, “free clothes from top designers, front-row seats at prestigious award shows, trips around the world, and earning more money from one movie than most people make in a lifetime.” But being famous and being able to have or buy all the nice expensive things that could lead to bragging about how they have nice expensive things and other people don’t. It could also lead to people wanting to break into famous people’s homes to try and steal all their nice clothes and all the expensive things in their house.
Despite their fame and fortune, many celebrities may not be as happy as they seem. “According to a recent study at the University of Rochester in New York, true happiness derives from having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth, and connections to your community.” “The celebrity lifestyle can make those things extremely difficult.” “Like for celebrities to have friends that actually like them for who they are and not for what they have.” “Or for celebrities to be able to walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed.” “Beyonce has said that though she likes the attention when she onstage. She’d be happier if she could “cut it off” when she isn’t performing and enjoy her life.” Some famous people like the fame, fortune, and attention, but others don’t like it as much or at all. So the people that don’t like the fame as much might regret becoming famous because they are tired of the paparazzi following them around everywhere they go. The people that like themselves being famous would only like it because they get to get their pictures taken all the time by the paparazzi, they earn lots of money, and that they get to be known throughout the world by millions of people.
