Being famous is a dream of many. Some want to be famous for their scientific discoveries, some for acting and singing, and still others for other talents such as writing, athletics, and even gaming. However, after reaching stardom, quite a few will tell you it’s not all it’s cracked up to be and there are in fact some huge let downs in the life of a celebrity, but almost all of them will agree about these three perks that go hand in hand with any celebrity life.
Most of us enjoy the low-key life of the average Joe. Get up, go to work or school, come home, eat dinner, get a shower, and go to bed. Get up the next day and do it again. But, if we’re honest, several us would admit that we would enjoy stardom if only for this reason alone.
As a celebrity, you are almost always guaranteed opportunities you would not otherwise have. Take Michael Jordan, for example. He was not only famous for being good at basketball and baseball, he was also the face of Nike. Being famous will put you at the top of the list when being considered for parts in movies, commercials, or other venues.
The Money, Of Course!
If you are famous, chances are you’re rich! It’s definitely not all about the Benjamins, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have so many. One of the biggest differences to get used, as a celebrity, is the raise in pay. We get used to having to deal with certain deficiencies in life. Money is normally one of them. Then, all of a sudden, we have more money than we know what to do with. Definitely not a bad thing! Bills are paid, debts are taken care of, and so are our closest friends and family. We can finally afford that dream car and that mansion with the huge, Olympic sized pool in the backyard.
If there’s one thing the majority of us enjoy, it’s special treatment or to be spoiled. Celebrities have the privilege of being moved to the front of waiting lists at restaurants, getting into club ahead of everyone else, and just plain being offered the best of everything. Because of their superstar status, getting what they want, most of the time, is just a request away.
Being famous in any form or fashion always has its disadvantages, and the media covers them in great detail often, but every job has its downers. The advantages of being a celebrity are part of the stardom dream. Remembering why being famous is a good thing might be a healthy thought for a change.
