The Ups and Downs of Being a Celebrity

Everybody, at one time in their lives, goes through a phase that they would love to be publicly recognised. Be it as a writer, an actor, a politician or sporting personality. It's a natural feeling that comes to us all. But in the end of the day, it is the fate and destiny that determines who is the chosen one to go on the road to fame. But it still does not end after one gets famous. The whole of life awaits them, with its ups and downs. So let us look at the ups and downs of being a celebrity.
A famous singer once quoted that there are three stages to fame. They are: ridicule, criticism and acceptance. And everyone whom we know on television and in the public media, all went through these phases. But not all necessarily came out tops. This is the first down-side. It is not all glittery and rosy. Another famous t.v personality once said that 'acting is the shy man's revenge'. So, there you have two very different and very true remarks that apply to anyone in this profession.
If you are a quite and shy person, by nature, then being in the lime light all the time may not be your cup of tea, but then again, the flip side, as Oscar Wilde famously put it is (quote) 'the only thing worse that being talked about is not being talked about (unquote) and also (quote) 'life is too short to be taken seriously (unquote). Once someone tried to taunt Oscar and gave him a cabbage after one of his theatrical shows, to which he said, (quote) 'Everytime I smell these, I shall think of you.' (unquote), so the rivalry and jealously is also part and parcel of it. The up side is to remain professional and not take things to heart on the climb to the top.
Famous people can't leave home or do shopping, unless under disguise, as they are public property and will be talked about in gossip columns even in their private life. It is a hard life. For the actor, after a role in a movie or serial, he is literally unemployed again and has to look for another role. It does not come naturally but has to be sought out. Only once you are on the top of your field, things are rosy for a while, but have to be maintained. These are the fruits of fame.
So these are just some of the ups and downs of being a celebrity. As we grow older and wiser, we realise they are just as normal as the ordinary person on the street.

The End.

I find that the common people do better enactments of being celebrities by putting up their whereabouts on social-networking, linking it to photographs to shop for likes and dislikes to give them that likable popularities.
Many celebrities are normal people with normal habits and voices in opinion with the price of fame being alienation not diplomacy. Diplomacy is when you have something to hide and the press sniffs it out and publicizes it.
If you really want to be popular, be normal, lovable through your reality and deeds rather than exposing exposing the body to get popular and to earn money.
I say this as a model, actress, singer and writer amongst other talented avenues of life who is devoid of sex, immodesty and all other vices as I am first a role model to me then to my family and then to the rest of the world as this is what a person portrays on the planet, their own lives and personalities their own way that marks their role-model and upbringing as a whole. I like a celebrity who became a legend and extremely popular on this planet but had no idea he liked me too the same way until he went back to creation and proved it all through his own family members who are my very good friends in reality and I didn't and still don't do anything to impress them but be normal with them as that is what he always wanted for his kids whom he brought up in life with strong values that I personally love. Know you are a fake Jackson, the real ones taught/teach me a lot from their own lives.
