A star is defined as an artistic performer or athlete whose leading role or superior performance is acknowledged. These “stars” play too intricate a part of our lives. Despite what many people believe, celebrities are the same as you and I. These people are entertainers and are not superior to the every day, nine to five, average, work person. They are doing their jobs as we are doing ours.
Anytime a person turns on the television these days, it is almost impossible not to see a celebrity being honored in some way. The Total Request Live (TRL) show is such an example. The television show takes place in a downtown, New York, corner building. Outside the show is a hoard of adoring fans wanting to see celebrities, as well as to be seen on television themselves. There are numerous people who bring outrageous signs in hopes of getting the camera turned onto them. These are the types of people who are led by celebrities; they follow their every move, and try to emulate them in some fashion. These are also the people, who, if ever they would encounter a celebrity wouldn’t know what to say, for fear of getting embarrassed in front of their idol, their favorite celebrity. The celebrities thrive on this energy and popularity. It is what keeps them above the rest of us when they actually aren’t.
There are, however, the celebrities that don’t think that they are better than the rest of humanity, and have more time for their fans than to just make them buy their album or watch their movie. I have personally encountered a few of these rare celebrities. I am a musician and I enjoy going to concerts to watch other musicians. One of my favorite concerts to go to was Lilith Fair. Lilith Fair is a celebration of women in music. It features many acts with either an entire female ensemble, or simply a female vocalist. It was also founded by one of my favorite band’s leaders, Sarah McLachla
