they don't. it just seems that way because when they are found out, the media has a hay-day with it. sure, many of them do and why not. lots of drugs are fun and there is nothing wrong with getting high once in a while.
Some of these celebrities are now making the type of money they never had before. Some can not handle the presure. Others can not change their life style, its just too much for them.
Maybe part of it has to do with a lack of self love and understanding about what drugs do or what is in them. The fact is that people who truly care about you won't make your use or non-use a condition of their relationship with you. Also, many celebrities are not leaders, they are followers who will do things to fit in or be accepted just like the majority of people.
Perhaps some celebrities fool themselves into thinking that one drink or one drug use won't hurt them when in fact it can start a vicious cycle for many people in the limelight and not. In fact many people begin to self medicate at turbulent times in their life. Problem is, drugs/alcohol will not make things better and will only worsen them. I also think it's a fallacy to believe that a lot of celebrities use drugs and not think of the fact that many everyday Americans have the exact same problems. The difference is just as NightWork4 said, the media makes it their business to make the celebrities' problems your business.

Why do so many people want to blame drug dealers and not drug addicts?I ask this question because of something I saw yesterday. I saw a police officer taking away a 6 year old child for dealing drugs (obviously not a prison...6 year old kid after all). And I thought to myself, his circumstances put...

Why are so many people selfish and mean, even to family members?Maybe I shouldn't be surprised any more, but why are so many family members selfish and hurtful to other family members? Life is precious, and flying by, and even if someone isn't your favorite person, why can't more just be kind...
