Being a celebrity: a dream or a nightmare?

The most of us have probably thought about the idea to have a role in a movie, to have the best sold album of the year or to be the best-selling author of all time and thus also to be a star (to be famous). But what are the advantages and the disadvantages of such a life?


The advantage

When I’m thinking of “celebrity”, money comes first up my mind. Money plays a big reason for many people to become a star or to start thinking of getting famous. In addition to the money they get friends and fans, who are supporting them, as well a big opportunity to achieve something big. For example to have influence and to use his or her fame wisely, like to tell their fans to donate to some important charities or to draw attention to social problems. The most want a better life, because all the time we are getting informed by the news, now a days more and more by snapchat or YouTube, that a famous personality has bought a new villa or she or her has flown to a beautiful island. In addition the most of us normal people are jealous. As I said many stars couldn’t been stars without their fans, who are supporting them in every possible way and, what a surprise, they are young and have problems. Stars could and do help their young followers by telling them the right truth. For example I’ve heard of a young prominent figure who told there fans that they don’t have to get operated neither have to change themselves for other people. I find that very important!

The disadvantage

Let’s face it, to be a famous personality is hard. And we all can imagine why. It is a full time job. Of course you can have some holidays in the carbic, but you won't be alone, because of the paparazzi and the probably two millions news reader. Furthermore the voluntary fulltime job affects your personal life and could cost a lot of damage. For instance if you have children, they can be controlled 24 hours a day. That can be stressful. In addition you are getting stressed as well, because you have to furnish performance. You have to be in the best movie, to compose the best song or to write the best book. The pressure is high because, I think you can say, everyone is watching you and are listening what you are saying. In the beginning I wrote that you get plenty of friends and you know that 95% of them are fake friends. In this business you can’t trust everyone.

To sum up

I think there are plenty of pros and cons for being a celebrity. I wrote some down and understood, that if you are willing to life such a life it can be a dream, but it can go the wrong side. If you are a person, who is born to be a famous personality and thought about everything what could happen and what you have to do, it is definitely a perfect dream.
