With fame, you can't trust everybody. You can't depend on them
being there for you as a person. They will only be there because
of what you've got you as a person. They will only be there because
of what you've got and what you can bring to their life. It's
not a relationship-it's a leech
Brown - Fame
My personal life is the same. At the end of the day, this is just
a job. I love what I do, and it's a great job. But it's like my
alter ego. There's Chris Brown the singer. And there's Christopher
Brown, the down-home Tappahannock boy that plays video games and
basketball and hangs out.
Brown - Fame
Time helps a lot. I found the fame thing really was a torment
for a while. Then you learn to deal with it.
Gibson - Celebrity
I go around the world dealing with running and hiding.. I can't
take a walk in the park . I can't go to the store .. I have to
hide in the room. You feel like you're in prison.
Jackson - Celebrity
to have a place that I could create everything that I never
had as a child. So, you see rides. You see animals. There's
a movie theater. I was always on tour, traveling.
Jackson - Children
Jordan for me was like.. black Jesus walking towards me.
It was overwhelming to me to finally meet the guy I've looked
up to my whole life.
James - Jesus
comes from my family. I have reality around me, and they tell
me when I need to calm down, take it down a couple notches.
Then they tell me when I do something good. I think what celebrities
lose is that they lose touch with reality because everybody
kind of works for them and they just want their job. But my
family doesnt care.
Knowles - Family
and the demands and the pressure and all of the people giving
you so much access to so many things can be too much. So couple
that with everyone telling you you're so this and so that and
so perfect and of course you can lose yourself.
Knowles - Celebrity
public person doesn't necessarily mean you're a piece of meat
for everybody. It's like saying someone has the right to rape
you because they saw a nude picture of you.
Macpherson - Nude
I hardly get home to Barbados because I have a demanding schedule,
and I do miss it. The bad thing is that Im away from my
culture, friends and family, and good home cooking. Its
tough being on your own in a hotel room on the other side of
Work - Culture
I think a lot of people that wind up being public figures, there
might be some degree of insecurity that leads you to desire
that kind of attention.
Stipe (REM) - Celebrity
It was bloody
difficult getting followed around all the time.
