Wanna Be a Celebrity? NO!

Why does it seem that most people desire to be famous?

Does it go back to grammar school with the popular kids or the kid that gets the most attention?  Does it carry into adulthood and stick with us?  It hasn’t stuck with me and that’s why I wonder what drives people to want to be famous. Money? Attention? Payback?

July 14, 2014: Lindsay Lohan is seen falling down while attendin

When “moving pictures” and “talkies” first came out, being famous might have been glamorous, because you still had mystery, you still had privacy.  It wasn’t the carnival show it is today.  And to risk the very possible fall from grace publicly, to me, is not worth it.

A few examples(not including the long list of athletes/politicians):

Bill Cosby, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Charlie Sheen, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Mel Gibson, OJ Simpson, Paul Reubens(PeeWee Herman), MC Hammer, Milli Vanilli, Gary Coleman, Jim Bakker, Whitney Houston, Hulk Hogan, Brian Williams, Jared Fogel…

Some fell but rose back up: Drew Barrymore, Robert Downy Jr., Chris Brown, Eddie Murphy, Hugh Grant…

We love a good fall from grace and if you want to be in the public arena you risk one small misstep to a major fall.  Is it worth it?  I’d rather sit back & watch.

Just my oponion.
