The Life Of A Celebrity: Not All That Glitters Is Gold….

Celebrating one’s work sounds amazing and extraordinary to on-lookers and sometimes even to the celebrated person. There is this prima facie wonderfulness ascribed to all celebrity figures which do not only influence youngsters to fly up and down aiming at becoming a celebrity, but also challenges many to limit their interest and career to movies, music, soccer and others where it is deemed that celebrity status can easily be fetched.

However, the life of a celebrity is not as flamboyant as most of us envisage. The glamour and attention seems very intriguing and this can easily be envied, swaying people away from their long loving careers in pursue of what seems to be a colorful celebrity lifestyle. Do not be swindled, not all that glitters is gold.

Celebrities have a hell of rough and “roboted” life. As much as the ordinary “us” have all the freedoms under the sun including but not limited to the freedom to make mistakes, celebrities dare claim to have such freedoms and the sky will fall fast on them.

Do you remember the times a celebrity has been bashed by a website or a tabloid newspaper for something highly infinitesimal which the ordinary Joe could freely do and not be pinched at all? Celebrities are unpardonable kicked in the face each day by writers, fans and worse of all by haters for their actions and omissions, and they dare talk back or even cough.

Apart from the fact celebrities are unfairly engaged in “counterbly uncountable” disproportionate fights with their hands tied to their backs and mouth thickly plastered, they also have no privacy at all. Imagine being harassed and chased around by some bunch of photographers nicknamed Paparazzis to the extent that; you have to hide from their strong camera flashes even if you have to do number two. The nauseate notion of celebrities having forfeited their privacy for fame rules and you dare try to argue otherwise.

The most difficult but fascinating aspect of celebrities’ lifestyle is changing almost everything that you stand for and everything natural about you when stardom sets in. After years of freely talking and walking without ever sued for slander or falling, you will be suddenly asked to change the way you talk, walk, eat, drink and even if you are not lucky and your name happens be called Akosua Mansa, that will be changed to Pascaline Nelson for you.

The above coupled with celebrities being unfoundedly detested by persons whom they have never met and maybe will never meet makes me wonder if being a celebrity is indeed such a luxurious and amazing adventure.

Most celebrities cannot even find lovers, authentic friends and cannot sleep without their sleeping pills. What is life if one cannot be him or her self and always have to act from morning to evening? A sad life right?

This is the life of a celebrity, the life that many young men and women are ready to trade all they represent, have and believe in to chase. The life of a celebrity may glitter, but it is never the gold you think it is when you are in a close proximity. Be happy and enjoy your non-celebrity life, for that is the gold which does not glitter.

  2. haha ,why does many ghanians lack common undesrstanding and therfore act ignorant ….is just a common picture of nadia who ids celebrity in this case and has has negativity of not putting javkie or the other celebrities here

    iit should even be seen positive too cos nadia is inndeed regonize as a good celebritiy who was honured for her charity also …

      1. @ben, whats ur probelem ..i didnt even mention ur name so why are acting like am referring to u .. and who are u to tell to keep my opinions to maslef ??? u are expressing urs so am i ….
        so dont get it twisted here !!!!

  3. pls mother dont insult us cos wht everyone is tryin to say is everytime her pic is posted here nothin good comes out of their mouth meanwhile she is the best among them .and if it is jackie nothin but good tht is why ppl r tired of dis bais. so get itclear is not aba the pic alone…. atleast tht is how i understood, but i know wht u r sayin as well, but goes deeper than tht

  4. excuse me mr. author stop using nadia’s pix for negative articles.
    why, did she refuse you of something you needed badly from her?. You better stop it cus it won’t ever ever change our minds about her. We love her!

  5. I think u guys are getting it all wrong, the author didnt use her pix bcos he meant harm to her personality, he only used her pic bcos she’s also a celebrity who is recognised not only in Ghana. If any other celebrity’s pix would have been used, people would’ve said the same thing. We just have to understand that the author was only emphasising on celebrities lifestyle not only Nadia but he used the pix bcos she’s also a celebrity. No hard feelings, peace!!!

  6. @jescy exactly thats the whole point i was talking …..but weird who a lot of the ghaian readers easily get things wrong!!!
