Are We Becoming Too Focused On Celebrities?

Recently, an interesting question was asked to me by a friend. Are we becoming too obsessed over every thing that they do? There is no clear cut answer to this; it all depends on your perspective. Yes, their talents make them money, but should it really make them as much money as they get currently? It seems like these days unless you are a very well educated person or a celebrity, rich is a fantasy that you will always strive to but never achieve. But, shouldn’t we be paying those well educated more than they currently get? From my perspective, the answer to this is always going to be the same—it doesn’t matter either way. Celebrities are always going to be in demand and loved by the masses; even if they are hated they still make the front page. This means the money will always be there for them, regardless of what anyone thinks. It is clear that most of them should not make as much money and have as much influence on today’s youth as they do, but it is not going to change anytime soon. It seems like I can’t go one day without hearing about some sort of gossip on a celebrity, when really all I want to say is, who cares? Let them live their lives and stop trying to get a picture of them doing something ridiculous. If more people spent as much time on celebrity’s lives on their own, we might be getting somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, celebrities do play a very valuable role in society. Most of them make their money, help communities in need, and really do make a difference. But, there are always going to be the ones that have no interest in that, or the ones that are only doing it because they are forced to by the ever-watchful public eye. It can take a lot to decide whether or not we are focusing too much on the every move that a celebrity makes. But, one thing you have to remember is, it is not all as glamorous as it looks. I would imagine that being hounded by paparazzi all day every day can get old real quick. There are certain aspects of their lives that they give up when they reach stardom that they are never going to get back. When you think about it from that perspective, things seem to be a lot closer to even. No matter which side of the fence you land on, I have the feeling that this is going to be a topic that comes up year after year. It will not soon be forgotten, and has really given me something to think about. I am sure that there will be a debate raging on with each person that reads this and their friends, which there should be.
