What is a Celebrity?

Celebrities represent well known people who others celebrate on a massive scale. You can emerge as a celebrity due to your talent, work ethic, connections, an unfortunate event or even just pure luck! These factors elevate your life to a level where you achieve fame. People who you have never met, recognize you.

Perks of the Celebrity Lifestyle

As a celebrity, you will reap astronomical benefits that most people only dream about. First of all, you will have access to tremendous resources. The celebrity lifestyle entails having influence. People will do what you do, say what you say etc. This can lead to deals that result in the expansion of your brand and ultimately money. Think about it, haven’t you heard of celebrities getting paid to wear designer clothes on the red carpet? The celebrity lifestyle means receiving opportunities to get paid to make appearances in person or even in commercials. Due to these opportunities, you will have enough income to take care of the people you love. Special treatment affords you access to better healthcare, education and much more.  Here is one star’s take on adjusting to the celebrity lifestyle.

Burdens of the Celebrity Lifestyle

Now no aspect of life achieves complete perfection, the celebrity lifestyle doesn’t make for an exception. As a celebrity, you must make incredible sacrifices in your personal life. You will need to find creative ways to travel. Imagine everywhere you go people swarm you because they want autographs and pictures. You no longer get to eat at a restaurant, go shopping or walk the street like a regular person. This can take a toll on you, especially if you need security guards all the time. Another issue may arouse because of the money people think you have. Even some of the people close to you will ask you for favors and money. Celebrities such as Kanye West have talked about family members blackmailing them. You will have to watch out for jealous people.

Balance

Most people consider the celebrity lifestyle for its glamour and glitz. You must surround yourself with quality people so you don’t fall victim to the lifestyle. It doesn’t take much to get caught up in the fame. Especially when you feel pressure and scrutiny from society and media outlets. Little to nothing goes unseen given the power of the internet. You can use your fame to bring awareness to good causes. People will listen to you, so use that to benefit the greater good. Make a point to enjoy the ride because nothing lasts forever. Leave a legacy that brings a smile to people’s faces when they think of you. Understand that your family and more importantly your kids will have to live with what you did so make it easy on them. Lastly, strive for happiness and fulfillment through your celebrity lifestyle.

Culture of Celebrity - Is It All Glamour

Culture of Celebrity – Is It All Glamour

What is it like to be a celebrity for a day, having all the attention to yourself and not being able to come out of your house without escaping notice? Is there any fun in that kind of lifestyle? Let’s break this one into pros and cons, because I would really like to find out the truth behind the culture of celebrity.

Pros

You are famous

People get to know your name and your work. Thus, you have the chance to affect people in positive ways. For example, if you’re supporting a particular cause (let’s say cancer research or education for poor), you have the opportunity to be heard and respected.

You meet cool people

You have the chance to hang out around very important people from all over the world. You share your ideas and believe with other celebrities and successful people too. With your strong network, you can easily advance any agenda and draw attention to whatever cause you champion.

You are a role model

You are someone who can be admired as your impact on people can be profound. Your lifestyle is something people strive for. Your beliefs are something people support and cherish. This also makes you live up to their expectations because there are so many people who use you as a standard for success.

You’re financially settled

If you’re a top class celebrity, you probably don’t have to worry about money. You have proven that you are valuable, and you’re paid accordingly. Being financially independent, you have the chance to help the others with their problems.

Cons

You don’t have much privacy

You are followed every single day, even when you do regular stuff, like shopping or taking your kids to school or park. And the worst part is that these media guys will always make a meal out of anything so you have to be on your best behavior.

You can’t be your true self

You have major responsibility for what you’re going to say or do. It’s like you’re being watched over, and every wrong move can be judged by others. Also, it puts a lot of pressure on you.

People idolize you or envy you

Being idolized is god but people can be pretty judgmental too. It’s like you don’t have the right to make mistakes – you always have to be at your best, in every situation.

Your success is just a tip of the iceberg

People only see the bright side of your lifestyle – the money, the glamour, the attention, travels, nice cars, houses… But, they don’t see how much effort you put into that nor what you are sacrificing in order to have this “perfect life”. Nobody wants to see that you’re just a normal person with ordinary problems and needs.
