I am so sick and tired of hearing about celebrities whining about their lack of privacy! If a person wants privacy, then they most certainly shouldn’t become an actor or actress, invasion of privacy comes with the job! When they rake in their bundles of cash they don’t complain, and when they receive preferential treatment at restaurants and stores they don’t complain. Don’t get me wrong, I would fight tooth and nail for privacy rights but not for those who intentionally made a choice to sacrifice their privacy for fame and wealth.
They use their children as a means to gain pity for the photographers chasing them, again it’s been their choice. Anyone with the slightest degree of intelligence knows that if you become a celebrity, you forfeit your right to privacy and basically become public property, period! It’s as if these stars don’t stop to think about such things while they enjoy the public fawning over them, wanting autographs and buying expensive homes, cars, jewels, clothing, taking exotic vacations. Then one day they wake up and pee and moan, poor us we have no privacy, we can’t go anywhere without being followed, without pictures being taken, poor us and our poor children!
Donate all of your money and possessions, stay out of the limelight, and go live in a small town somewhere in the country and then you’ll be left alone. But I’ll bet anything that these celebrities would never in a million years give up all that money they made off of the public! It’s ironic, without fans (the public) these people are just another face in the crowd they are nobodies, so the public makes them a somebody and takes interest in them and the next thing they know, the stars that the people made decide that they want to be obscure when they feel like it!
Imagine for a minute that Halle Berry was in movies and no one liked her, no one went to see any movie that she starred in. She would be a flop of an actress and wouldn’t earn any movie maker anything, if the public didn’t take an interest in her. In reality the only ones who make a star are the people, fans. What a slap in the face to fans of a celeb to suddenly want them to stop being interested in them, their life, their kids, after they made you!
Harsh as it might seem to some there should not be special laws put in place just for celebrities and their privacy. They chose the lifestyle loving the attention, wealth and all of the special treatment that money and fame brought to them, it’s a downside of fame and always has been. Like it or not, their children are an extension of them and there are people out there who are interested in celebrity children too, it all goes hand in hand with the life that they chose to live, deal with it!
It’s pretty funny that legitimate stars complain about the lack of privacy and yet the Kardashian’s, famous for being nobodies will stop at nothing to get attention! In fact, I think that they are a big part of the reason that things have gotten so bad for the real stars, because of the Kardashian’s over sharing, leaving nothing sacred, nothing off limits, no one that they wouldn’t sell out for the tiniest bit of media attention!
