Many people think that being famous is all fun and games. They imagine that a day in the life of something recognized by everyone must be a walk in the park. After all, they have access to any place they’d like to go to, people admire them, and they can afford pretty much anything that their heart desires.
What many people don’t realize, however, is that there are plenty of things that celebrities often complain about which goes along with the territory of fame. There are often hidden negative points which no one could understand unless they experienced it themselves.
When it comes to the not so fun side of being famous, here are the things celebrities complain about the most.
Imagine every time that you stepped out of your house there was a herd of photographers anxiously chasing you for the perfect shot of you doing something which could be newsworthy. Websites and magazines will pay big amounts of money for these photos, so this means that the paparazzi are often willing to do whatever it takes to get the shot.
Celebrities are often put in danger and are victims of accidents following a pursuit from the paparazzi, in some cases even leading to death. Next time you think that it might be fun to have yourself on the cover of a magazine, try to ask yourself at what price, and everything that comes along with the territory.
Not Being Able To Do Simple Tasks
Sometimes our day calls for putting on a pair of sweatpants and running to the store for a jug of milk. Or going to the post office and buy a book of stamps. We often take these simple tasks throughout the day for granted. Celebrities don’t have the same kind of freedom to be able to do simple daily tasks since they have to worry about being recognized and mobbed.
People are often so star struck and excited about someone that they’ve seen in the movies or on their favorite shows, that they lose control and mass hysteria can begin. This can be interesting in the right setting, however, when all you want to do is put some gas in your car and you haven’t even had your morning coffee yet, it can be incredibly suffocating.
People Trying To Take Advantage Of Them
Often celebrities complain that they have issues getting close to people since they are constantly having to wonder if people only want to use them for their fame and fortune. Since it is all too common for celebrities to be taken advantage of, it can be extremely isolating having to wonder if people are genuinely your friend, or if they just want something from you.
