Fame is a wonderful thing, but not everyone wants it for themselves. This includes a number of famous people who already have a lot of it. If you can believe it, a good number of famous people despise their status. To some people, this may not make sense, particularly when you consider that wealth and luxury are often associated with fame, and why would there be anything inherently wrong with that? Well, when your privacy is constantly invaded, when you’re repeatedly scrutinized for everything you do (like what you wear to the grocery store), and criticized for your thoughts and opinions, it’s not that desirable.

Do I not have what it takes to be famous?’” Because of his unique background, he is able to empathize with people who have had to navigate life in the public eye while they were growing up.

Before she wed Cooke Maroney, the Oscar winner had a difficult time securing relationships with men she considered to be suitable husband material. Every single Saturday night, she experienced feelings of isolation. The way guys treated her was so awful. She continued by saying, “I’m just a girl who hopes you’ll treat me nicely.” I am as honest as the day is long. With all due respect, I have the feeling that I need to meet a guy who has been living in Baghdad for the past five years and who is completely unaware of who I am.

The pop artist was candid and forthright about his struggles with the public eye when he spoke about them in an interview with NME. He stated, “I’m having a hard time just getting through the day.” He asserted that people were only aware of the glitz and the great things because they were ignorant of the other side of the situation. On the flight, he saw the Amy Winehouse documentary, “Amy,” and he started crying as he saw what the media was doing to her and how they were treating her. Bieber continued by describing the “isolation” he felt as a result of staying hidden in hotel rooms away from fans and photographers: “And I feel isolated. You are more likely to experience depression if you are unable to engage in any activities or travel alone. I would never want this for myself, let alone anyone else.”

Her self-esteem was severely damaged, and she began to believe that tours were an extremely lonely place to be. She was distressed and depressed about the situation. She started having panic attacks either before she entered the stage or as soon as she left it after she performed. She was under the impression that she was not capable or adequate in any way.

Being a famous person is not an easy job by any means. According to Clooney, “The large house on the hill is very isolating.” “There is absolutely no other way to put it. This kind of fame comes with certain obligations and responsibilities. Since I last went for a stroll in Central Park, fifteen years have passed. I’d be interested, did you know that?
