Celebrities get a lot of attention, but can some of them actually handle the stress that comes with it or will they crack under the pressure? Most of them look like they're very happy, but what if there's more when they're not in public. What if what we think of as a glamorous life isn't so glamorous? Celebrities look happy, but that doesn't mean they are. Celebrities earn a lot of money too, but that won't lead to true happiness. Being famous cannot make you truly happy.
Some celebrities would rather not be watched everywhere they go when they are off camera, or are no longer performing on stage."Beyonce has said that though she likes attention when she's on stage, she'd be happier if she could "cut it off" when she isn't performing."(Scope Magazine Can Fame and Fortune Make You Happy) Yes, Beyonce may look happy in all, but sometimes she just wants a break. Other celebrities feel that way too. They may look happy gliding up and down red carpets, and going to some of the best awards shows ever, but that can also be stressful. You’ll have loads of fans surrounding you, and the paparazzi as well. Celebrities don’t always want their picture taken, especially when they are out in public just doing everyday activities. Celebrities just wanna do normal things like us, but they hardly ever get the privacy they want.
Celebrities do make a lot of money, but money can’t buy true happiness. According to Scope "She (Jennifer Lawrence) earns more money from one movie than people make in a lifetime" Celebrities may earn a lot of money. That doesn't mean they're necessarily happy. They can get really stressed about the movie or song and that could affect their happiness. Celebrities are never truly happy, they don’t have true happiness when it comes to money. Some people think it can make you happy because you would have money, and would people would look up to you as their role model. Some people also think they will be happy because they can handle the stress that it brings. People aren't really aware of the stress that it brings.
Celebrities could be surrounded with friends, but who’s to say those friends are true friends? “It can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends. Stars have to wonder if their "friends" like them for who they are or for what they have." (ScopeMagazine Can Fame and Fortune Make You Happy) Celebrities may look like they’re surrounded by friends, but the people could be faking the friendship. People would do anything to get close to their favorite celebrity, even if it means faking a friendship. This could make being friends with regular people difficult for celebrities because they don’t know who’s really there for them and who's not. When people pretend to be your friend it can hurt, and make you feel like you can’t make any friends because of your social status. It could also get to the point where celebrities don't trust anyone.
I believe fame cannot make you happy. Celebrities do get a lot of attention, but can they handle the stress that comes with that attention? Some celebrities don’t like being watched everywhere they go, and would rather cut off the attention when they are not performing on stage. They do make a lot of money, yet money isn’t the key to true happiness. They’re also surrounded by many friends that could possibly just like them for what they have and not for who they really are.
