Our celebrities of today


wpid-Ghanaian-Celebrities1.jpgIn today’s materialistic world where pleasures are in good order nobody will not pooh-poohed the goodness of being celebrity.Being celebrity or simply famous has its own advantages and disadvantages.The common perception is that celebrities and famous personalities have everything in life.After all, the grass is always greener on the other side, isn’t it? The veracity is that there are as many downsides and disadvantages of being a celebrity as there are the number of benefits.

??? To begin with, from special seats at various plush theaters to special tables at various comfortable places, celebrities are given the advantages of being the preferred customers everywhere they go.Wouldn’t you love and appreciate it if you were given preferential entry at nightclubs or given first row seats at award function?Of course you would and that is exactly why this perk of being famous is just too tempting.
??? However, i can confidently say that being famous generally connote being richer.One of the very obvious advantages of? being famous is that fame generally brings with it lots of fortune substantially.Celebrities and other famous people are prevalently richer than the other average person and personalities around.Luxurious homes and cars,fancy gifts, expensive clothes and other such materialistic pleasures of life convert from a dream to reality when people became famous.Forget homes, celebrities are also known to own entire islands.If you have a single ounce of doubt whether celebrities are actually rich, go watch episode of MTV and all your doubts will magically disappear.In particular, watch the episode which? showcase the homes, cars and lifestyle of 50 cent.Besides, celebrities are recognized ubiquitously.This is an advantage because people often feel ecstasy.It can be a great opportunity to boast to a friend and say “GEE,I’M SO FAMOUS.Everyone recognizes me while most seasoned celebrities get over this initial ego boast promptly, being recognized, spotted and pictured is quite a rush and a message to the egos of some famous people.
??? Furthermore, there is no doubt that celebrities and famous people have fans.Fans are the people who adore their celebrity idols.They can have celebrity crushes or real life admiration for their idols.From mail and other forms of appreciation that celebrities receive can be inspirational, motivational and every humbling.After all, who wouldn’t like to have their own fans, entourages and worshipers?On the other hand, innumerable opportunities arise when people become famous.When people become famous, more, more, opportunities arise in life whether career related or not.For example, someone like SALAMTU made a living not only from attending GIJ.She was the face of Adidas fashion apparel perfumes simply because she is famous at GIJ and can afford to sustain and promote them.Being famous definitely opens many doors in life which would have remained shut if fame had not been ameliorated.Many celebrities embark upon the entrepreneurship path as soon as they achieve stardom.
??? Moreover, celebrities and other famous people cannot lead lives? of a normal person.They will have to live in their own little secluded world and will generally be unable to do things that average person can.This disadvantages of being famous can stop celebrities from indulging in the little pleasures of life, which can be very frustrating indeed, some of these simple pleasures of life are as follows:
*Playing ball at the neighborhood playground
*Going shopping to the market
*Going for a bicycle ride on the beach
*Sitting on the park bench and reading a book without being asked” can i take a picture of you?
*Have a quiet dinner with family at the local restaurant.
Being famous can also attract stalkers.We have all heard about these nasty cases of celebrity stalking that have gone out of control.Famous people are often followed or harassed by phone, email or messages by fans or followers who cross the line and become obsessed.Obsession can turn into threats and even physical harm.Also celebrity status can attracts too many fake friends.From a celebrity’s perspective it would become very hard to spot a genuine person who wants to be friends as opposed to many of the million wanna befriends who may want to befriend them for personal gain.As one would image, it would be a nerve wracking expensive to scrutinize each and every individual that come into their lives.It would literally translate to being on ground every single hour, minute and second of the day.
??? Consequently, if SALAMATU wears a bikini and steps out on the beaches of larbadi to catch some sun, the entire world is going to know about it.If SALAMATU and EDWARD had an argument or quibble over trivial matters in their own house, the whole world will know about it.Get the point? lack of privacy is one of the biggest demerit of being a celebrity.
Besides, technology had given easy access to every one’s lives.Fans are able to feel a part of their favorite celebrity”s everyday life by tracking their whereabouts.They feel up to date on what is happening in their lives.Thus, giving them a connection and a sense of closeness to celebrities.The ability to constantly know what is happening with celebrities what they are wearing, where that are going and what they are interested in also affects how society lives their lives.People feel the need to emulate their favorite star,so they imitate their clothes, accessories and even attempt to attend the same type of places.
??? Finally, today the media is everywhere in our societies to ginned-up every secret of any celebrity.People can see where their friends are checking on Facebook, what they are doing on twitter and check apps.It is my fervent hope that anybody who wish to be one of the celebrities in Ghana will not be set as quintessence of jealousy after being celebrity.
