Celebrities Are Human
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.

I didn"tmt say much to him though because, even though I don"tmt like to admit it, I fall into the category of fans who freezes when they meet a star. Not only was he rude and obnoxious, but, he was on drugs at the time. The lead singer from a group called Wild Strawberries, who simply goes by Roberta, set aside time after her set to sign autographs for her fans. He was walking around in the crowd as any average person would. But, when he came off stage, he was more than happy to speak with people and sign autographs. This year I was fortunate enough to meet most of her band. One of my favorite concerts to go to was Lilith Fair. He was quite happy that I was interested in him, and what he had to say, instead of Sarah McLachlan. How much easier the world of entertainment would be if the celebrities didn"tmt believe that they had free reign over the general public.
