Being a celebrity - such as famous film star or sports personality - brings

problems as well as benefits. Do you think that being a celebrity brings more
benefits or more problems?

1. Almost everything has two sides – positive and negative; being a celebrity is not
different. Sometimes it is good and sometimes is not, what makes a difference is the
way they deal with it.

I am not a celebrity; however, I can see the pros and cons of being one. I believe that
famous people suffer a lot because they do not have "peace" in their life. Most of the
celebrities do not have a social life, for example, if they go out with friends and
family, they are followed by people who want to take pictures of them to sell to
magazines and internet blogs. On the other hand, famous people have a lot of money
to spend in what way they want. They always have the best clothes, shoes, bags and
also the most expensive stuff. They spend a lot of money travelling to other countries
and having fun. Additional to that, a lot of people want to be like them. I heard that
there are some people who even do plastic surgery to seem like their favourite actress
or actor.

In my opinion, I believe that being a famous person bring more cons than pros. I think
everyone deserves a good social life, in another word, going out and having fun
without being followed or appearing on the front page of a gossip magazine or a blog.

Overall, celebrities like an actress, actor, singer and sports personality, likes to be
famous, otherwise, they would not choose this kind of job and occupations. More than
that, I believe that they are used with this kind of life.

2. Almost every human on planet earth has a dream of being a famous celebrity. One
has to follow a punishing routine in order to get success. We will explore pros and
cons of being a famous person.

The most rewarding outcome of being a celebrity is fame. Fans adore and worship
their celebrity like a god. Wherever you go, people recognise you and you get
unrestricted access to almost everything at your disposal. Looking at another side of
the coin, fame also creates inconveniences. Wherever you go, people recognise you
and try to pose with you and get your autograph. As up the ladder of fame you go, less
private life you have.

Next, the most precious thing is respect. People respect and treat you as a role model.
People and press follow actions of you and monitor even slightest move, you make.
You can be an inspiration to millions of people, which is an outstanding experience. At
the same time, you have to be very cautious with your public and private behaviour.
Respect comes with a high sense of responsibility and dignity.
Monetary gain is another bright side with achieving success. Successful people earn
millions of dollars with each assignment and can get everything, which money can
buy. On the darker side, they need to maintain the money wisely so that at the end of
career they have sufficient money to live a respectful life. For instance, a famous
Indian actress like Saira Bano is currently living in poverty after having a successful
career.

In conclusion, being a famous celebrity has both pros and cons. It is a gift which a few
people get out of millions. With a little inconvenience, I think it has more benefits than
troubles.
