Do celebrities deserve privacy?


Why become famous if you want to hide away?

There are millions of young people who dream of nothing else but to become famous, popular and well-known to millions of supporters. Many of them have celebrities for role models and from the time that they are able to think logically they start to imitate those celebrities in their actions, their mannerisms, their way of speaking and in the things which they will purchase. Many of these young people have only one dream and that is to meet with that celebrity in person so that they can tell them how much they adore them and how much they want to be like that role model. Therefore in a way celebrities which is fanatic about their privacy is to some extent very selfish and they actually are providing very little value to the people who has been instrumental in making them famous. I think everyone understands that even celebrities cannot be on a pedestal their entire lives but I do believe in order to provide value to their loyal fans they should at least reinvest something back intheir loyal supporters who has been standing by them through all those years while they have been in the public eye.

Seriously how do you manage popularity?

Many newbie film stars or singers will work 16 or more hours a day in a desperate attempt to make their mark in the entertainment world and everyone knows that a very small percentage of hopefuls ever achieve any real and sustainable success. It is an extremely competitive environment and it takes a special mindset and a very tough mindset and a lot of ambition and sacrifice to emerge as a superstar in the entertainment industry. Therefore it is rather ironic that those who have finally arrived now suddenly have a desperate urge to withdraw from the public eye and to turn themselves into a reclusewho suddenly can no longer stand the attention of all of those millions of supporters. To be blatantly honest that sounds like compromise to me and I simply do not think that this is fair towards the millions of supporters that has been standing by that celebrity over all the years. I do believe that those celebrities have a sacred responsibility to all their loyal supporters and maybe the best way in which to approach this issue is to publicly allocate a certain amount of time which can then be used by that celebrity to interact with their loyal supporters.

The other side of the coin is also true

Every person does have a deeply integrated need to draw aside simply to recuperate and togather their wits. According to Scripture even Jesus separated himself from his loyal supporters occasionally to spend time with his father. I don’t think there’s an issue with that basic need but rather it is the way in which that basic human rights is managed by celebrities. An increasing number of celebrities are now employing extremely tough looking bodyguards and as long as this is only done purely for personal safety then no one should have a problem with that but if those bodyguards is merely employed to keep loyal fans away from their role models then I think that that is quite selfish and even ungrateful after all the support which has been given to that celebrity. I think the key factor here is a healthy balance, I do believe that celebrities deserve some alone time where they do not need to impress anyone but where they can truly and really relax without the need to impress anyone but in the same way this most certainly does not mean that they have a right to treat their loyal supporters badly by complaining when these people approach them in public. You will certainly be able to find more professional writers that are able to express their opinions about this issue at

May be the focus should be on education

I believe that students going to drama school should be educated about this issue and they should learn to expect this kind of adoration on the part of their loyal supporters. They should learn as soon as possible in their professional careers to expect that people will be attracted to them and that there will be a public demand on their lives because in a way they had become public property. I just think that this is one of the sacrifices which people in the entertainment industry will have to make and the same thing will be true for politicians or anyone else who has become a public figure. You cannot work towards becoming a celebrity with all of the trappings associated with it and then suddenly when you have achieved that objective, you suddenly change direction and then expect everyone else to fall in with it, it just seems that there is something wrong with someone who reason in this way. Naturally the public should not have any claim on a celebrity who is at home minding their own business, I think most people is happy to admit that when acelebrity is in the privacy of their own home then no one should bother them there unless they had been officially invited to do so just like any other person that is finding themselves in the privacy of their own family home.
