If being a celebrity is so great, why does it put so much stress on celebrities? Celebrities can’t do everyday things without being noticed and photographed. People who are famous may become extremely stressed, and they may turn to drugs and alcohol. I would not like to be famous because it puts a great amount of stress on people.
Being famous can bring a lot of stress, and that can lead to trouble. "If being a celebrity is so great, why are so many of them, well, kind of messed up? Take Justin Bieber. By age 16, he was cranking out chart-topping hits and earning millions of dollars on sold-out concert tours. Lately, however, it seems like the 22-year-old has been spending most of his time apologizing for his bad behavior." Justin Bieber has been arrested for drunk driving and was charged with vandalization. “Look at Shia LaBeouf. Once a star of hit movies like Transformers, LaBeouf is now known mostly for bizarre public meltdowns and struggles with drugs and alcohol.” People who are famous turn to drugs and alcohol to “relieve” the stress of being famous. The truth is drugs and alcohol don’t help with stress, and they can hurt your health bad. When using drugs, after one use you can become addicted to them.
Most people think being famous will make them happy because all of the amazing perks. People who become famous have lots of money and many high-class things. They get front row seats at fancy award shows and they get clothes from top designers. "Plus, she gets amazing perks, like free clothes from top designers, front-row seats at prestigious award shows, and trips around the world." People think money will make them truly happy, but money doesn’t make you truly happy. “According to a 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.” Even though you get amazing perks and lots of money, the happiness of being famous will fade away.
Most famous people can’t do everyday things without being noticed. "Famous people can't so much as walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed." Paparazzi invade celebrities personal space and can be extremely annoying. Celebrities can’t go out with friends without being noticed by fans and photographed. Celebrities also have to question if their friends like them just because they’re famous, or if they actually like them for the person that they are. “But according to Rockwell, it can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends. Stars have to wonder if their “friends” like them for who they are or for what they have.”
I would not like to be famous because it puts a great amount of stress on people. Celebrities can become stressed and that will hurt their mental health. Just because people get amazing perks doesn’t mean they’re happy. Paparazzi can be annoying and celebrities can’t do much without being noticed.
