There are a seven billion people in the world. They all have dreams. Someone wants to be happy, someone wants to be loved, someone wants to be rich and famous, but not everyone can reach their goals. However, if our dreams come try we should remember that we have to pay for everything we have achieved. The striking example is life of celebrities. Most of them wanted to be famous since childhood, but were they ready to pay the price of fame? “Once you have money and fame, the next thing you should expect is scandal and shame”, said Michael Bassey Johnson. So, is it good to be a famous or it only looks like it is?

First of all, it is fame and glory. Everyone knows you, everyone wants to be you. You are always the centre of attention. Yes, it is a great feeling. Your name is on the headlines of tabloids and broadsheet. Your face is flooding all screens, channels and billboards.  The second thing is money. Yes, you have a lot of money! Perhaps, it gives you some illusion of independence, confidence and freedom. You can buy almost everything you want. You are the fashion icon for your fans, because you can afford to wear a designer labels and always to be dressed to kill. Moreover, you can travel where you want to and see the world. It is a really great benefit of being a celebrity.

On the other hand, you have no privacy. You are always in the public eye. All your moves and all words you say are under the watchful eye of cameras. The paparazzi follow you wherever you will go. They pry into your private life to spread rumors or to make some new scandal. Also, many of celebrities suffer from depression because of stressful job. Furthermore, they often feel like they are alone and it causes drug addiction, alcoholism. They spend a lot of money for rehab and psychologists. Most of them hide their pain and despair under the mask of bright white smile.

In conclusion, we should say that all professions as this one also have its pros and cons. If we choose one way we have to be ready to face with all disadvantages on it. We should know for what we go. Perhaps, to show some irony about this job I’d  like to finish with words of Fred Allen: ”A celebrity is a person who works hard all of their life to become well known, and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized.“
