Do Celebrities Really Have it All?

26 08 2009

Have you ever stopped and wondered about why so many people want to live the life of the rich and famous? Is it the constant attention paid to them? Do people dream about mountains of money and a gorgeous boyfriend/girlfriend? Fancy cocktail dresses and hanging out with their heroes? Whatever it is, has anyone ever thought about the little things that celebrities like Angelina Jolie have to go through every day? Here are just a few.

Imagine that you are walking down the street minding your own business when suddenly a whole bunch of people with cameras come out of no-where and start taking pictures of you going into the grocery store. Would you feel like your personal space is invaded? When you’re a celebrity, it’s hard to stay anonymous. Everything you do is published in newspapers, online, in magazines. You can’t even pick your nose without having the picture on the cover page of newspapers all over the world. They are like show ponies at a carnival, monkeys at the zoo.

People use anything against you. Recently, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were asked about their off-screen relationship at a New Moon conference. Kristen looked quite upset, and the reporter was told to only ask questions about the movie they were promoting.  Celebrities are questioned about their every move and if they are left unanswered they will turn into rumours. These are hurtful to the people they involve, but people rarely think about it.

Celebrities have to fight harmful criticism. If they wear a dress that doesn’t suit them or their hair isn’t just right, their photo is splashed across the front page of newspapers and have hurtful words said about them.

Their children will spend their whole life living in close quarters with their parents. They are used to getting everything they want. When they arrive in the ‘real world’, it’s a lot different. People work hard to earn a living, while these children don’t do anything. They have been pampered their whole life, while people are starving in other countries. Tiny toddlers are given designer clothes that cost hundreds of dollars, while in other countries children are wearing pieces of cloth that barely cover them. I’m not sure about you, but this seems a little unfair to me.

Hollywood is full of fake smiles, fake friendships and unreal relationships. Celebrities have their every move twittered about or in the newspaper, and their children turn into spoiled little brats.  But I guess if you like constant attention and could live with the rumours then you would probably like Hollywood and everything it has to offer.
