Celebrities live in a strange, unattainable world all their own. We tend to view them as other beings that need to be studied, photographed, and learned from, but in reality, they are just the same as us. They have hopes and dreams, they want to make a difference in the world, and they make mistakes in life.
Celebrities are constantly viewed under a microscope by us and are judged for everything they do – from grocery shopping to having children. That being said, some celebrities know just the right thing to say when it’s needed most. Some celebrities use their status to help make the world a better place, while some struggle to stay afloat and relevant in the world. Here’s to celebrities, their enigmatic nature, and strange, yet familiar, struggles.
Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no.’
You don’t learn from successes; you don’t learn from awards; you don’t learn from celebrity; you only learn from wounds and scars and mistakes and failures. And that’s the truth.
Living in L.A., everyone likes to mold you and change you. I don’t care about fame; I don’t care about being a celebrity. I know that’s part of the job, but I don’t feed into anyone’s idea of who I should be.
If you were to ask me what I want to do – I don’t want to be a celebrity, I want to make a difference.
I just want to make music; I don’t want people to talk about me. All I’ve ever wanted to do was sing. I don’t want to be a celebrity. I don’t want to be in people’s faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven’t even known I’m on.
I’ve learned that being a celebrity is like being a sacrificial lamb. At some point, no matter how high the pedestal that they put you on, they’re going to tear you down.
