fame whore

 

 

 

 

Fame is a whore. Better don’t get carried away with her.

She’s in bed with you today.

That don’t mean you’ll be in bed with her tomorrow. You ain’t the only lover she’s got. You may get two to five years with her in the least but if you are reeeeeaaaally lucky and she falls hard for you, then she’ll be with you for decades and if you treat her to her satisfaction, and not break her two-timing heart, then you shall indeed be famous forever! People go hunting for fame like desperadoes but it will find you when it wants to. She may be such a whore but not a cheap one.

She has a price, a very expensive tag on her. If you can afford her, she’s yours. She loves the highest bidder but that’s no guarantee of her loyalty. Oh , and how so demanding she is. Just when you think you know her, she’s got your dirty draws out for the paparazzi and gradually chokes on your breathing space whilst maintaining her gorgeous and striking carriage like a man’s trophy wife.

Fame may bring you riches but better learn how to handle her or she’ll make you sob. I say to thou famous one; never let her tamper with your memory for I hear of her amnesia-incitingtactics.Avoid her superlative pride inducing proboscis for it can puff up your skull. And do please watch that you are not overbearingly yoked with her slaves. They all share her infection; STARphillococcus, lethal and contagious, contracted through bedding Fame without protection.

Symptoms include: false sense of superiority, amnesia (forgetting humble beginnings and old friends from that era), snubbing and acting rash to those that appreciate you, your status and craft, the willingness to do just about anything to maintain Fame’s love which may not be shy of selling one’s soul and severe cases such symptoms as cravings for excesses in alcohol, drugs (prescribed and otherwise), casual sex and every wanton intoxication.

Many have survived and overcome this endemic affliction after having learnt the hard way in rehab, by self revaluation or an altar call. Many have also perished. The sweetness of her bosom has led many a maestro to damnation and many divas have been buried prematurely by this notorious incubus called “The Craze For Stardom”.

However do the above postulations make Fame a villain? Definitely not. Like fire, she’s just not a good master or faithful lover. The trick is to always strive to be in control.

Remember, she is more prolific as your servant. Caution: Do not jump into bed with her. Your doing so increases your susceptibility to her intrigues and charm, and the viral gifts she bear turning you into a pun in her reckless fingers and how do you know you are already tangled up in her sheets?

Agreeing to a self diagnosis alone indicates an underlying need to asses oneself and this in itself is a good sign – a mad man that realizes he is mad ceases to be mad, he has just corrected the first of his illusions!

To begin, ask yourself a few questions, the following:

1’What is my relationship with all spheres and walks of people (save for those that are simply envious, do not appreciate other peoples successes or just hate you for no just cause) like in comparison to how it had been before the new found status, is it improved, mended or broken?

2.What changes have taken place in my habits? Negative or positive, less or excessive?
Have I acquired any new inclinations since the fame came? Are they beneficial or not, do they foster good health and better acquaintances?

3.What is my feeling towards displays of adulation from people of a lowly social bearing? Indifferent and cold or warm? Receptive and truly grateful?

4.What length would I go to in order to keep the status quo? What are my priorities and limits or are there none at all?

Weigh your replies to the above carefully. You just might discover that you are on the path known to end without the warning of a bend.

Fame does not mean to be a bug or even such a whore; it’s just that she isn’t endowed with the ability to manage as she is thus clueless about such a task. Rather, she should be subject to your own managerial tact.

There are certain things fame can invite into your life that may be hard to flee from. Gossip, loss of privacy, falsehood, overzealous prying pressmen with the primary motive to report and over sensationalize, gold diggers and in many an instances stalkers of the harmless class and those of the psychotic nature and so on.

However, these undesirables can be checked even before conception. Engaging mastery over your reputation, keeping your head high enough to maintain self-confidence but not beyond the clouds, constantly reminding yourself of where you came from and who have been with you from the start.

Stardom brings with it a band of sycophants, praise –singers, nay-sayers, envious downtalkers. Never forget to keep your fans close and your friends (those who have been with you from the onset before the fame) closer . Learning to ignore the harshness of a merciless media is an art which requires thick – skinned non-chalance. People will talk. Don’t let the thoughtless words of those who secretly wish they were in your shoes nudge you towards escapism. Advice both good and bad will proceed from several mouths. Publicists, managers, agents, friends and even colleagues.

You need to keep your head together. Don’t depend on people for every nugget of wisdom for they may not always be right. Not everyone who grins at you desires your best interest at heart. In the world of fame, selfishness and vanity rules the sphere. So take a deep breath and look within yourself. Don’t get swayed by the bandwagon and what is in vogue for them, be it style or habits. And most importantly, love yourself. Be nice to yourself. Stay off stuff that would hurt your persona, physique and health in the long run.
