Bursting the Bubble of Celebrity

Famous people rock. They also pass stealthbombs and burp like the rest of us seven billion people. Even the likes of Kim Kardashian, who perhaps spritzes PooPourri over the surface of her queen’s toilet before starting her business—one of them—is not immune.

Either celebrity is highly overrated, or star-struck people have a slight, naive case of dimwittedness. Why put fame on a high pedestal?

After all, actors during takes experience the frequent “I just ate a salami and onion sandwich prior to our love scene” moment. As an audience, we’d never know how difficult that kissing scene was to make.

What is fame but a popularity contest among high-profile professions? And why aren’t engineers famous? Bell hops? Even Nobel Prize winners deserving of the limelight are so for only a brief spell in time, then relegated to the dusty history books of academics and historians.

It must be a perk, if one can call it that, of specific industries.

We all know actors love the spotlight. But they’re just as unlikable in person as your next door neighbor down the hall who is in love with his drum set at midnight on Tuesdays as he rehearses for his new alternative rock band—who also want fame.

The silver screen adds ten pounds, and a hefty yet manipulating dose of likability. It’s all a game in the name of fame. Julia Roberts comes across as a charming angel on screen graced by her 10,000-megawatt smile…but her co-stars report a less-than-kind side (we all have one).

Acting, however is an art, a respectable craft if you can move one to tears and laughter. There are several respectable professions across many industries. It’s the professional in the profession (or lack of one) who makes the grade or not.

Also, fame sells. It makes studios a lot of money. The more famous one is, the higher her professional value. The higher her professional worth, the more money she can command. Makes perfect sense.

On the nobler side, fame might (and sometimes misleadingly) indicate the attainment of success through talent, gusto and hard work.

“Oh, I saw you in a movie last night!” gushes a fan, immediately followed with the thought: “With her being on the big screen, she must be far more precious than I! I must, must get an autograph to subtly transfer her spectacular, inherent godly assets to my wholly undeserving form….Where’s my good pen?”

Or something like that.
