Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, and Tiger Woods may have tons of money, but they do not have it all. Here are the reasons we should feel sorry for child stars:
Miley's Dad, Billy Ray, brought this fact front and center by saying he wishes he never let Miley become a young millionaire celebrity type. He feels guilty, because as he says, her stardom has ruined the family. You see Billy Ray and his wife are getting a divorce, and his family is breaking apart.
Well, now that makes me feel bad. Sure, you may be cynical enough to say, "You are a sucker! Billy Ray is just trying to get us real people, to feel bad for him, so that we stop giving Miley a hard time" I just knew you were thinking that!
These child stars realized their potential early on, when the rest of us regular folks, were just watching them on TV.They were each loved, and treated like royalty. We all would love to be rich, but that's not the way it goes. So we adore celebs and treat them like Gods until they make one mistake.
You see, the real reason I feel sorry for these young celebs is because they all gained exactly what they wanted very early in their lives. When they messed up once, they were given hatred from us. We have brought them down, because we feel jealous of them.
That's why I feel sorry for these young celebrity types; they got exactly what they wanted; millions of dollars.Child stars such as Michael Jackson, Drew Barrymore, Corey Haim, all gained major fame, and riches very young, then they all came into major problems.
These child stars never had a real childhood. They did not get to play at the playground, experience recess, or ride a real school bus. All the things we take for granted, they never even saw. For all we know these child stars, felt jealous of us for having friends, having regular birthday parties, for having brothers and sisters, and for having the same boring house to live in seeing our moms, and dads every boring day.
For all we know child stars might want to ditch it all; the fame, the fortune, to just have one regular day in a real home, living a real life. Maybe child stars can't handle all the stress of being responsible for not only their careers, but for other people's as well. They have people who earn money off of them they need to keep on payroll. Many people have jobs because of them. Justin Beiber has a band, songwriters, publicity people, a manager, an agent, etc. All these people have families that depend on them to earn a paycheck. Can you imagine having ALL that riding on your shoulders at the tender age of let's say 10?
So, yes,we should feel sorry for Lindsay Lohan, Justin Beiber, and Tiger Woods, for being so young they have too much responsibility and no real childhood. Copyright 2011, written by Kate Johns who is a talented writer who began her writing career in 2004.
