We shouldnt follow celebrities in everything

09 October 2014, 13:48 Jibunor George Chuks

We all love the spotlight. To be at the cover front page of every magazines, newspapers and on news. Fame and power, but for what purpose?

Children tend to see these men and women as role models but to what image are they to emulate from them when the life they live on the cameras are different from that they live outside the scene. Marriage break-up every now and then; is that what they want and wish for the young children who see and take them as role model's to adopt? Hell no.

What they act in the scene; does that actually helps them to be good people outside the cameras or do they only copy the bad roles they play? Many questions; young readers should ask their actors, actresses and artists. The entertainment industry is moving so fast that the people in the industry are as well moving with the train. My point is not to judge anyone, because they are some who equally their lifestyle has been source of inspiration to many people.

But the fact still remains that, children see these people everywhere, so therefore, the images of their pictures and lifestyle remains in their minds as they grow up. Thus, wishing to be like them when they grow up because they are their role models. But what is left to copy if who they wished to copy is nothing but rascal and bad example? Celebrities should please look into this; let's not copy to be like the white's in everything. Whom their celebrities marriage don't last. God bless us.
