Role models appear to be few and far between in Hollywood. Famous for nothing is the norm nowadays with individuals having nothing to offer the public except for loose and unruly behavior, wild and frivolous spending, divorces gone wild, and swapping partners out the ying yang. What is the definition of a Role Model anyway – do we know anymore? Let’s take a look. A Role Model is a person whose actions, behavior, success and outward appearance can be emulated by others. Now that we know what a role model is we need to let our children know so they can make an informed choice on whom to emulate. Since Hollywood is not interested in creating role models, the lead needs to come from home. Our children scream and holler over celebrities that don’t know them, don’t want to know them, can’t give two shakes about them, and would like nothing more than to continue to collect monies from them through concerts, albums, movie ticket sales, paid appearances and more. Now there are Hollywood celebrities that are doing well for communities, as they should give back. We need to applaud the ones that have charitable foundations, especially foundations where youth and families benefit. We need to applaud the Hollywood celebrities that are benevolent in other countries. We need to applaud the Hollywood celebrities who speak out against injustices taking place in their countries and around the world. We need to applaud the Hollywood celebrities that are attempting to be role models. As a society we also need to understand that life happens for them just as it does for your regular Joe Blow, with the exception of finances, in which it appears they have an unlimited supply. Ok, back to the role model issue. Hollywood celebrities who act badly act badly mainly for publicity purposes and sometimes it’s just their nature. They must keep their names and faces in the public eye – it’s like they’re saying, “Don’t forget about me.” When they act badly we don’t forget about them because our Press writes stories on them and interviews them so we don’t forget about them. There is the phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind.” Well, that is what happens when you don’t hear of a person in a very long time. We’re like, oh, I wondered what happened to so and so? The Press keeps so and so alive through TV and radio interviews and print when we thought so and so been gone – LOL! Some Hollywood celebrities should have “been gone,” retired, that’s a wrap sort of thing, but no, they are like bad wheels that keep squeaking. If they would squeak in the right direction maybe someone would take them seriously and look up to them. Hollywood celebrities with children should know that their kids are watching them, so if the parents run a muck nine out of ten times the kids will too.

Be a Feature Presentation, Not a Fake Presentation!

The only encouragement Hollywood’s fake role models give is the pursuit of fame without giving thought to how their fame can be used to help others or how their fame will impact others. There is nothing wrong with being famous, but be famous with a positive purpose. Mold fame and success into something of value that has people talking and that kids can emulate. F.A.K.E. means False Acts, Knowledge Empty. Hollywood’s fake role models can share very little knowledge about positives in life – they generally stay in trouble with the law, enter rehabilitation for whatever reasons, give very little to others whether it’s money, time or other resources, and are constantly on the taking end of the stick. There were some fake Hollywood role models that were caught lip sinking their songs – what an embarrassment, and to be honest there are some fake Hollywood role models that can’t sing worth a lick but for new and improved recording studio technologies that make them sound good. What happened to the great singers with the voices that bellow out an original sound? There are some, but very few nowadays. The general public, namely our youth, have been duped into thinking there are individuals out there with real talent, but have created their fame and fortune from inappropriate acts, stupid videos, crazy songs, starring in reality TV, and wacky attire. Yes, for some, the fake is fun to watch, but Hollywood’s fake role models are distracting and can derail one’s dreams, education, and morals. How? Not everyone can be or will be famous, and some individuals will pursue fame all their lives and never obtain it, therefore pursuing an impossible dream. Some individuals will pursue fame instead of an education which no one can take away from him or her. Some individuals will attempt to emulate Hollywood’s fake role models who have questionable morals and therefore may even begin to exhibit moral decline themselves. It’s easy to spot Hollywood’s fake role models. We just have to teach our young people how to spot them as well. C’mon, let’s wake up and smell the fake.
