Do you honestly believe that even though celebs are human beings like you and me and they are entitle to have their private life as well, the entertainment business is a double edge business because celebs need exposure to remain in the public eye,, feel famous and popular and need the public so their checks can keep coming in at cost of theri private lives?
I read this on an article not so long ago and the article says:
"A lot of experienced celebrity photographers will hang out in areas that “the beautiful people” may frequent like popular clubs and restaurants. But unless they have gotten a tip, it’s often just a fishing expedition with no guarantee of success. Still, success achieved by capturing a great image of a popular celeb can pay handsomely enough to make all the waiting worthwhile. Celebrity by its nature feeds on attention. Some (not all) celebrities let media know where they will be. Some go to places where media hangs out.
I mean celebs needs phtographers to remain acitve and relevant and they need that kind of exposure to be more popular and famous if that is their intention.
There is an young actor who was famous for his TV show that lasted 10 years ,. After the show finished 3 years ago he stopped acting and still he is not doing anything related to movies or TV and it seems he is no planning to return to act anytime soon. The public is starting to forget him.
So I do wonder when all these movie stars are caught stepping out from famous restaurants or venues tthey usually hang out while they are not working and that is a public place and all these photographers are there to take photos of them even if it is just walking on a street
It’s a double edge sword. They need publicity to remain in the public eye / continue to get work /create cash flow for themselves…. and they also want some privacy (understandable).
Unfortunately few these days have any boundaries….. celebrities, the people covering the and the people who are fascinated/obsessed with them….. All that creates the mess that we now have.
Me, I could care less about the celebs personal life and could care less about their opinions. As you started, they are just people who have been fortunate to have a skill where they can become famous and earn (generally speaking) a high paying wages. Putting them on a pedestal is ridiculous, and setting them up for failure/disappointment.
