Why do you think famous celebrities like Whitney Houston of today die the way they did?
This simply dawned on me as I watch the funeral of Whitney today. Celebrities like her though may be at the spotlight and stardom we can't help but wonder why they seem to die "unhappily." Any thoughts?
It's difficult for them to live with fame. They need to be "perfect" each and every time they perform. They cave under that pressure and that's why they turn to drugs and alcohol abuse. It's the same thing with all performers while some handle it fine, others just crash and burn.
I think that once they become so famous, a certain loneliness sets in. Who do they trust, how do they make friends, how do they go about life - everything they do is on a stage and I think that when all is said and done, and the lights go down, it must be terribly lonely.
mainly because they are idiots. i think that if they weren't famous that it wouldn't have been any different.
I think famous people die this way because they lose who they really are for what is temporary. It looks good all the fame and money but the truth they are empty inside. Before she died you never heard her music played and now you hear it every where. When you are down on your luck the people in Hollywood only talk about you in a negative, they do not come to help lift you up. But the moment you die they act like they were your best friend.
Take Don Cornelius he was ill, but I do believe he was lonely and longed for those in hollywood to come see about him. They probally did not want to see him in the condition he was in so they stopped coming and calling.
I won't get all bible but when your only spirti is other people faith in you and you lose it you are all alone. But when you have faith in God and can call on a higher power no one can take your spirit.
I know this is a very old question, but in the wake of so many famous celebrities dying (some from depression/overdose), I would say that they got everything they ever wanted, and discovered it was not enough. The holes in our lives need to be filled with deeper things than money & fame. Not getting everything we want sometimes helps us to discover what really matters in the long run. Coming to a place of peace in our souls about who we are and why we are on this earth is the best thing we can do. Getting what we want is just the icing on the cake.
