    BEING FAMOUS (June 14, 2020)

    (18:16:49 PM 13/06/2020)

    Everyone in this world wants to be recognized for their contribution to life and society. People always fantasized about being noticed by other people, standing out from the crowd, making money in just split seconds and answering interviews about themselves proudly. In our childhood, we always had this so-called “celebrity crush”, someone who was our inspiration to live, to try harder, to achieve outstanding goals, and, in some occasions, to just be as good-looking, intelligent, or famous as them.
    Indeed, most “inhabitants” of the celebrity world always have this aura within them, something which attracts other people to them like a mouse being attracted to the piece of cheese. It might be their looks, their intelligence, their talents, their capabilities, or even their style and vibe. These people have all achieved wonderful things in their respective careers, and have managed to pull ahead of most of the population in order to be famous. This gives them various privileges, including meeting other renowned celebrities, having their own shows and companies, being invited into shows and interviews, associating with sponsors, and having lots of properties. Being famous, in this sense, is wonderful after all.
    Nevertheless, the life of a celebrity is not as perfect as it may sound. Celebrities have to keep their image in front of the people. They are especially prone to scandals and personal information leakage, which is why they need to censor some of their personal life details, and live this life of a perfect person. This could be very stressful, as they may not be able to stay true to themselves, or pursue their hobbies. Since celebrities cannot live a life like a normal person, he/she might have to treat people in another way, therefore lose sense of the reality of society. Lastly, due to the nature of competition in the world of celebrities, the celebrity could easily lose fame due to the rise of other celebrities. This would be bad for their personal health, as they would not be able to touch their desires to return to their perfect image again.
    So is being famous good or bad? Please join the session this afternoon to discuss!
    QUESTIONS PONDER:

        In your opinion, what does the word “famous” mean?

    2. Can you share some of your “celebrity crush” in the past, or at least someone you like in the celebrity world? Why are you attracted to them?
    3. How do you think one can become famous? This may apply to you.
    4. Do you want to be famous? Explain.
    5. Is it worth it being a famous person? Why or why not?
