Why do famous talented people commit suicide?

I don't get it? why? they are so talented or they have the succes after fighting for it and then they just get depressed either they dissapppear or commit suicide. Alexander Mcqueen is one of my icons literally! and i don't understand why he took his own life? aren't they happy? or are they just so talented they are depressed?

  • these people have to life up to certain standards, to you they are your idol, to others they are just a son or a daughter, a father or mother, a brother or sister. they have no life of their own, everything they do, is staged. I've seen an interview with Jk Rowling, and she is such a down to earth modest person, she told in that interview that she doesn't like premieres , she didn't like all the attention.

    famous people have to keep up walls, to protect them from criticism, because it could ruin their carreer but the underlining problems is that, these people deep inside are often sad, and lonely. the same thing counts for good looking people. often they are naieve and believe when someone is nice to them, that they also care about them.

    Look at michael jackson, he didn't have a childhood, even when he was a grown up, he was still a child inside, he was a good person but totally misunderstood.

  • Because depression (as a medical condition) is something that's unrelated to the success or failure that you experience in life.

    And when you look at somebody else's life, all you're seeing is an outer shell covering a massive pile of shit that you don't even know exists, much less possess the capability to understand.

  • maybe because these material goals don't fulfill who you are. they are still human and you need to be happy with yourself. fame and money don't mean shit.

  • i think it has to do with Maslo's hierarchy of needs, they achieve self actualization so quickly without achieving the other steps in the pyramid...
    this leaves them with feelings of emptiness...

  • Nothing just depression of being more n more famous n successful
    They even don't have gud n close friends or relative
    They drink n also take drugs
    Sometimes go on wrong way
    N never accept their mistake or failure
    One who can do that will not commit suicide

  • You don't need to be famous or talented to suicide...
    I think that a lot of them work so much that they sacrifice a part of they sanity to get what they want...

  • Famous people are like Facebook... most of what you see is the glorious highlights and trips to fabulous places. But they've got tons of stress and worries like anyone else.

    • It's a very truthful article. Not sure what's up with the downvotes.

  • They get bored with life. If you have everything what is there to hope for?
    They could just have done a lot of drugs or their fame makes them feel trapped.
    Or perhaps they have preexisting depression that drove them to want to be famous in the first place.
    Talent always comes at a high price.

  • Famous people are still people. I can seem to have a great life but be depressed. Famous people have to go through shit. They may be rich but have you looked at magazines? Their life is everywhere. They get put under too much pressure and they crack. I don't understand why anyone would assume someone has an easy life just by the money someone has. I don't know your story and you don't know mine and it would be wrong of me to assume that you have never experienced struggle and heartache. Everyone has their own problems. Go look at the Facebook page Humans of New York for examples of how people who look happy and okay are dying inside.

  • I think some of them have enough money to do all the drugs they want which can cause people to become depressed. And some of them probably feel like the only friends they have are fake & that they're only their friends for their money & popularity.

  • I guess because they have to deal with so much pressure and people are fake around them and they can't do many simple things anymore. Money changes people and businesses look at them as a product not a person. So you have to keep up your fame or you become insignificant again.
