About Pity

Some celebrities are just in so much bad luck. They might have taken the wrong turn in life and ended up somewhere in the gutter. However, we still follow them on Twitter and Instagram, while they post about their rehab, or how they are dealing with their relationship breakup. We write to them, as if they actually read and care what we think, trying to support our idols in any way that we can.


Perhaps it is even worse to experience failure as a celebrity. So many people look up to you and idolize you. Not only do you fail yourself but you seem to fail everyone who has you as their role model. Then again, should we really have these seemingly infallible people as role models?
