A Life With Fame


Elijah Hicks, Reporter

Celebrity life today is toxic. It must be tiring to always look good or put on a certain face for the world. There are so many pros and cons to being famous, though is the world knowing your name worth the side effects of it all? 

In an interview on The D’Amelio Show, S’Amelio says, “I have to deal with the fact people don’t like who I am. I feel like it just gets more difficult every day.” D’amelio goes on to explain that she’s physically and mentally exhausted. 

This varies from her personal life to school life and negative comments on how she lives her life. Living this particular lifestyle is a lot of pressure on one person and is not as easy as it seems to be. 

From an outside perspective, it may seem these people we call famous just have it easy, though they don’t. Even though some people don’t view famous people as they view themselves, it doesn’t make them inhuman or humans without emotions. 

In Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner says, “Some people are born for this life and some people aren’t and I just know I’m not supposed to be famous.” Kylie got a lot of hate for saying that people kept asking her the same question. Why won’t she stop posting on social media? 

Her reason to keep on going is Kylie Cosmetics. She says when she feels comfortable where she’s at, she will stop posting on social media and disappear. 

Fame at such a young age can mess with a person for life. In an interview with Power 106 FM, Justin Beiber talks about having fame at a young age.

He says, “I think it is crucial, I think it can destroy a human being. It destroyed me. I was lucky enough by the grace of God to have people that care about me enough to pull me back in.”

These people that the world doesn’t understand or view as real humans have gone through real experiences that will stick with them for life, and not all of them were positive. 

When looking at interviews and watching videos, when do celebrities talk about being happy and the upsides of fame? 

In an interview, Elizabeth Olsen talked about loving how kids come up to her excited to ask questions and learn from her. She also said she loves when people still respect her boundaries as a human being. 

Fame isn’t as fun as it may seem. Yes, there are upsides to it, though how would it feel to deal with stalkers, no private life, and constantly being held to such a high standard. As a community, we should start trying to build these people up instead of tearing them down.
