A lay person would say that celebrities or people who are famous has nothing to worry about. They are settled in life and could not wish for better. Well this is one perspective. We do not know what these celebrities would be going through. As the reality goes, you need to pay a price for any good thing that happens to you. Therefore, let’s look at few advantages and disadvantages of being a famous body.
Being recognized by everyone everywhere.
Among many advantages of being a celebrity the first is that a celebrity is recognised where ever they go and by whoever they meet. They get treated special because of this recognition and gets the best seat in a theatre, best treatment at a restaurant and free entrance to many events. People would willingly help you out as you are famous and would know helping a famous person would be an advantage for them.
Being able to purchase luxury goods.
If you are famous then obviously you are rich too. Being rich can be overwhelming at times, yet it is the way for all the comforts in the world. These famous people can purchase the most expensive cars, mobile phones, bags and clothes. They get to travel to many countries in the world.
Having your own group of admirers.
Everyone likes a little attention. But celebrities get it the best way possible. You might have evidenced many people screaming their lungs off when they see a famous person who they almost worship. The celebrity fan followers rather worship them than just cheer for them.
Luck keeps pouring in.
A perk of being famous is that you get many golden opportunities knocking your door step. This is because people are willing to see their favourite artist or celebrity anywhere they go. So, for an example, if you are a famous movie star, there are higher possibilities of you being asked to appear in TV commercials, music videos. Their pictures will be taken by wedding cinematography services in Sydney for magazine covers. What more can they possibly ask for?
No liberty to live like a normal person.
While being famous attracts many eyes to your side, it also can affect negatively. This is because once you become famous, you will not be able to continue living like a normal person. It is not possible for you to go to the super market to shop for groceries or walk in the park or beach with a friend. They will be entrapped to have a much home bound life which can be very frustrating.
They need to keep their eyes open when they walk out of their homes. This is because they are watched constantly through the eyes of the paparazzi. Family photography make sure that any wrong act they do, any weird face they make, their dress malfunctions, places they go to and people they meet all are captured and brought to the eyes of the world. This therefore is a hindrance to their private life.
Quick judgments and fake friends.
People would willingly be friends with a famous person only to rub in their fame and to be popular as their friends. It becomes very difficult to identify who a true honest friend is. And because every act of a famous person is watched and reported, people fall into quick judgments and humiliate celebrities through magazines, newspaper articles and through social media.
