“Their value is just not the same.”


the walk of fame

So many people in American society have always wanted to visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But for the performers that have been immortalized on the walk, it’s something much bigger. Anyone in the arts know that having your name enshrined in the ground in Los Angeles is a big deal. But over the recent years, the value of that has diminished.

far from reality

No one would have thought that someone like one, if not all the Kardashians would be considered for a star. Or better yet, Perez Hilton, known for being a celebrity blogger. Because when you think of having a star, you think of all the contributions that the entertainer has made to the industry. Yet, you hear these names brought up in conversations.

But not just the reality personalities, also people who are entertainers, yet they have not been in the business that long. I saw where Jennifer Lawrence name is being considered. She has been in some pretty phenomenal films in the recent years, but I still think it’s too soon. I want to see over the next ten to fifteen years what she has to offer.

Still, there is this great feeling when walking across your favorite performer, or probably given one yourself. Because now, for the rest of your life, and even after, your name is there in concrete. People like Marilyn Monroe is still a major draw for people around the globe. As for myself do I care if I ever were to get one, no really, but I would be lying if I said I would turn it down.

FAME: WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE DESPERATE FOR IT

“We all want the good, yet reject the bad.”


FAME

So many people in America today are desperate for fame. So desperate they are willing to go to extreme lengths, even if it’s at the cost of them losing themselves in the process. And what is it all about; is it worth it? And for so many, it’s not because we love our privacy. But for others it’s the cost of doing what you do.

Now, that does not mean that all famous people are these fame, attention seeking individuals. I am referring to the people who throw their children out there for the sake of a check. Or the reality families that always lead to a family breakdown somehow.

requirements

It times past you had to have some sort of talent to be considered famous. You couldn’t just throw yourself out there and expect people to just bite. You to have something that made you attractive for people to buy into; or they weren’t having it. Now, anyone with an Instagram following is a famous person. No true talent is required to have a high level of notoriety.

psychological ramifications

You think to yourself, who in the world would want to be famous. And when I say that, you have a lot of people who are good at what they do. And they become very well-known as a result. Meaning, I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg was seeking fame, but he is a famous person. I don’t think Michael Jordan was seeking fame, but he is famous.

People who seek out fame in life, the people who always need to show the world their lifestyle have something else going on mentally. Because the constant validation from the outside world, when it’s supposed to come from the inside out says a lot. It’s not good to be alive, everyone has to know every second of the day, what you have and where you live.

downfall

Will it ultimately be the downfall of society; the answer is no. Because the vast majority of people are not seeking fame in their lives. They just want to go to work and come home safely. But for the attention seekers, they continue to trek on as well.
