My Desire to Be Famous
My love for Hollywood and my desire to be famous, may seem like an obsession to a lot of people. Truthfully though, I am really not that obsessed. I was when I was younger though! All through childhood and my teens, I wanted to be in the spotlight! I would have given anything to be a movie star back then!
I've grown up though and my feelings about that business have changed.
I don't even really like Hollywood that much anymore, to be honest. I've lost a lot of respect for it.
It use to be so classy and glamorous.
Grace Kelly in my opinion, is the most stunning of them all!

He was so handsome!
Need I say more?
It's lost it's magic. It's missing that sparkle it once had.
It's sad really. Where did it go?
You would have never seen Grace Kelly or Clark Gable on the red carpet with greasy, un-kept hair. If they were tipsy in public, you wouldn't have know it.
Plus, there is just too much hypocricy in that business. I don't get how celebrities think. It's like they think their experts in everything. They become famous and suddenly, they know everything there is to know about everything. It's one thing to give advice, but to make it sound as if there way is the only way, is just ridiculous.
I give advice, based on my own personal experience, opinion and what I have gathered through research, but the way they do it, they make it sound more like fact than opinion. They aren't real doctors or lawyers, they just play them on TV and in the movies.
I don't understand why people listen to them. Half of the stuff that comes out of their mouths, is hokum anyway, not to mention illogical. It seems as if they make things up as the go.
They just aren't very reliable sources, they always seem to contradict themselves. So, I'm not sure why anyone would take them seriously.
My grandpa always told me not to look up to celebrities and although I did have teen idols, I understood. I never worshiped them, they have never been my heroes. I only admired them for their talent, beauty, style. There are many whom I respect, the ones who seem to be more normal and humble.
Yes some celebrities inspired me to want to cut or wear my hair a certain way and yes, I often wished I looked like many of those gorgeous girls. What little girl wouldn't? It's normal, especially for young girls, to idolize the girls they see in mags and on the big and small screen. However, they were never heroes. My grand parents were my heroes.
I still desire fame and fortune, and I still have favorite actors, bands, artists and supermodels, but it's not necessarily an obsession, though, I do often use that word when I feel the need to over exaggerate. It's really more like a passion.
I just want to inspire, but I also want to live a happy, normal, private life.
I think fame and wealth can be used in positive ways and if it ever were to happen, that's how I would want to use it.
What are your thoughts on fame and Hollywood? Do you have any favorite Celebrities? Were any of them ever your heroes?
