We see them all over the magazines and on our televisions. We “ooh” and “ahh” over the fashion that they wear to fancy events or even casually down the street. Somehow they always look fabulous and have an untouchable glow about them. We may ask ourselves “how did they get that way?”
It’s no doubt that celebrities live lavish lifestyles, drive fancy cars, wear beautiful jewelry and enjoy the good life more than the majority of us. Here is how the majority of them make it to that level of status.
Acting In Television and Film
Acting in films is one way that a large majority of celebrities make it big. The visibility that they have when they are part of a major blockbuster film makes them a household name.
Although it may seem fantastic to be able to be recognized and idolized by many, however, being a movie star is a double-edged sword. Sometimes they encounter a lot of issues with the paparazzi and find it hard to get a moment of privacy. Movie stars, in particular, seem to be most under the spotlight since there is the biggest fascination with them in the press.
When an athlete is great at their craft and known for taking the trophy on the field or court, they become a big crowd pleaser. They are idolized by children and high-fived by adults.
Not only are they famous for their sports career but they are also able to rub shoulders with all kinds of other celebrities. From movie stars to rap stars. Not to mention they have a handsome paycheck which allows them to buy things like sports cars and mansions.
We all love a good song that catches our ear on the radio. Not to mention a good music video that goes along with it. Getting a hit song these days means that you will become a household name and well-known for your craft.
These celebrities are known for making big money off their platinum albums and jetting all around the world on tour promoting their music.
They are known for making just as much money as other celebrities if not more and aren’t afraid to flaunt it.
Being In The News
Sometimes when an average everyday person is part of a big news story they reach instant fame for no other reason than simply being in the press.
In many cases, these people’s fame dies out within a few weeks or months, while others continue to profit from this media attention and go on to make careers in media.
At the end of the day, it’s all about whether they want to remain a celebrity and remain in the spotlight or not.
