If I were given a choice by God to choose between an ordinary life and a celebrity life, I would prefer my regular life.
I have a life, but a celebrity does not have one. I can live my own life but a celebrity cant.
I live a life the way I want to. A celebrity lives the life the way other people want them to. I am doing better than a famous star.
The list of celebrities who took their own lives is long. I don’t want to be one of them. I don’t have a lot of money. I don’t have name and fame either. But what I have a celebrity does not have. I have peace in my mind. I have a happy family.
Life has its flow, the same way a river has its. If you stop the flow of a river its water become polluted.
If your life loses its natural flow, it loses vividness.
Marylin Monroe took her own life. So did Kur Cobain. Many other celebrities did the same. The rate of suicide is probably the highest among the stars.
Many celebrities have the miserable life. We can name Michael Jackson, Witney Huston and many others who lived terrible lives.
I am an ordinary person, but life is spontaneous. I can laugh when I am happy or amused. I can cry when I sad. Nobody tells me how I have to laugh or how I have to mourn.
Hollywood stars can’t do things that they want to do. They act in movies. They also need to act in their real life. They laugh and cry artificially.
My wife goes out with the cloth that she feels cozy. She wears shoes that are comfortable to walk.
A star has to be always worried about her clothes. If any “wardrobe malfunction.” occurs, she will come in the media spotlight.
The life of a celebrity is a burden. Celebrities try to escape from their life by taking drugs. No other profession creates so many drug addicts as actors and singers.
Rivers flow downhill due to gravity. Trees grow best when they get sufficient light and soil. Animals fit in the forest. Everything in nature follows fundamental rules.
You can grow plants without soil, even using artificial light. I doubt if fruits will have the same taste. You can look beautiful using cosmetics and plastic surgeries.
You can look younger even you are not. You have not stopped the process of getting old. Would looking younger give you a better erection!
So unnatural life a celebrity has.
Wild animals give us entertainment by performing in the circus. Do animals enjoy that?
If you need a robust body, then you have a workout or run. If you build your muscles by injection, that will not sustain.
I can choose my lifestyle, but a star can not. I am not worried about my look, but a celebrity is.
