While being famous can allow you to fulfil your dreams, travel the world, shop till you drop, and help your close family and friends financially, but there will be times you won't be able to leave your home. Your cars, homes and phones will be bugged. Tracking devices hidden in your vehicles. The paparazzi, Joe public, drones and helicopters following you.
Once you are famous, the celebrity lifestyle is awesome, rub shoulders with the rich and famous, designer cloths, flash cars, jewellery. Power beyond your wildest dreams. Yet most famous people would throw away their celebrity/famous lifestyle purely for a more peaceful and private life.
Famous people need those huge houses. They need to fit a cinema, bowling alley, Basket ball and Tennis courts. Even swimming pools because they're not able to visit public facility's in fear of obvious unwanted attention, and to protect family and friends from being pestered all the time when socialising. Then the more famous you became, the homes get even bigger, the walls get higher, and the more reclusive you'll have to be. Perhaps having to move abroad. Many famous people travel in disguise, or on mopeds. Perfect for keeping anonymous.

The need to relocate, perhaps with all your family to a more secure location
to avoid the paparazzi or other strangers who'll be right up-in-your-face, hiding behind bushes following and documenting your every move. Even going through your trash looking for anything the papers would like to publish. Others go through the trash hoping to find anything which has a famous persons DNA or hair on it. Or they're looking for private papers and hand written notes which could become very valuable on Ebay.
They will always be there to follow your rise and, sometimes, your fall from fame. They (the Pappz and stalkers) will be there until the day you die. Some will try to aggravate and annoy you to make you angry so you'll attack them. This would make a better story and of course, give the pappz the opportunity to earn hundreds and thousands of pounds just for a picture. Unfortunately, some celebs take the bait and do end up brawling with them as shown in some of the videos on this page, and trust me, when they take your picture they're not always looking for the most flattering shots.
