Could you handle being a celebrity?

So, what say you? Do you think you could handle being a celebrity? Always being in the lime light, paparazzi always taking photos of you and your family, being in the public eye all the time.

What are your thoughts?

Nope. I would have no intrest in being famous. I am a family man and family and fame don't seem to mix well.

Pluse I am impolsive and I am not affraid to speak my mind. Again that isn't something that seems to mix well with fame. If I was a hockey a pro athlete I am sure I would be suspended all the time for saying shit like. "Get off your knees ref you're blowing the game" just as an example.

I think I could but would probably remain single until I get off my drinking binge lol. Having my drunken ass posted on the cover of a magazine don't bother me at all as I'm sure if I was drunk enough for my picture to be taken..I sure had a hell of a time.

I think I could. I'm only 13 and love basketball. I love watching and playing it. It's my passion. I'd love to be in the NBA. And I am gonna work hard to get there one day. I do think I'd get a lot of techs though fir getting mad at ref and floppers like LeBron and Harden.

The paparazzi wouldn't be standing on two legs for long...

I guess it depends on the "celebrity" status. I'd think pro-sports players have it better and easier than a movie celebrity.

I would probably pay off 10 people to stalks and take pictures of certain paparazzi members until they get pissed off and try to file a lawsuit...

No. Not at all. As much as I love money, I equally hate people. I couldn't handle being constantly hounded by fans, critics and paparazzi.
 
It depends, I guess. Here in Quebec, people are not as hectic with celebrities than they are in the United States. But still, not sure if I could handle the fame for so long. You gotta be surrounded with great people to help you deal with that.

I think that may be a Canadian thing. I've had run ins with Fred Ewanuick and Nancy Robertson, Hank and Wanda respectively from Corner Gas; and they weren't being hassled fans. I guess one could say that Corner Gas was a cult comedy show, so maybe a lot of people don't/didn't know who they were. But I met Prevail from Swollen Members at the Quiksilver store in Downtown Vancouver during the peak of SM's career - 2005 - and again, didn't see anyone hassling him or taking pictures of him or even asking for autographs. I think the celebrity worship is more of a Hollywood phenomenon.

Anyways, to answer the question, for me, it would be a crap and shoot. I'd enjoy the money and the perks of being rich and famous... but since I'm not much of a people person, it probably wouldn't be the career for me.

I think you're right. In the US, I feel like pro athletes aren't treated the same as actors and singers in terms of being a celebrity. I've always had the vibe that it's different in Europe though, and that soccer players are treated like legit celebrities.
