Since I have became famous, there has been a lot of changes. I can’t even remember what it was like when I wasn’t famous. My phone blows up every second because I get a ton of likes on my posts and just get a lot of notifications. It is hard to focus on one thing at a time without getting distracted negatively or positively. When you are famous, you should think of little kids growing up because they want to be just like you, so work to be a good role model for them. You can become famous in a lot of different ways, such as being internet famous, a professional athlete, an actor, etc. I’m going to tell you what it is like to be famous.
There is so much going on at one time, and I don’t know what to do. I can’t handle all of the bad things happening. In fact, I can’t go out in public without getting swarmed by a bunch of people. Lots of times, I may not get to see my family for weeks! Some people even comment mean things on my tweets to try and get into my head. Furthermore, privacy, loyalty, and one’s “real self” are some major disadvantages of being famous. I’ve lost a lot of friends throughout my years of fame. Depression and loneliness can become a big issue at times. I don’t want to be like Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston and die from overdoses. Some things I worry about are threatening letters/calls, the lack of privacy, stalkers, lack of security, and worries about their children's lives being disrupted. Hopefully, I can forget about all of the bad things and focus on all of the good things going on in my life.
Career plunges are huge things to worry about when you are famous. No one wants their fame to go to waste! I hope my fame lasts forever, and I don’t know what it’d be like again if I wasn’t famous. I didn’t know this many problems would appear from becoming famous. It is every little kids’ dream to be famous. I don’t want to let anyone down and fail them. My therapist always tells me to always think positively, not negatively, because it will only help you out in the long run.
Although there is a lot of disadvantages, there is also some advantages you have to becoming famous. When I was little, I had always dreamed of becoming a truly famous person. You make bank, and you can buy whatever you want whenever you want. Fame also results in a lot of loving fans that care about you and the decisions you make. Millions of people would say hi, and you would never really get ignored by anyone. In addition, some people might pay $500 just to go watch someone go sing at a concert. Wouldn’t you like having a mansion and a sweet car? A lot of people appreciate what you do when you are famous. Make sure you respect all of the good things and forget about all of the bad things happening.
