Today I read an article about Justin Bieber. Yes, I am going there. Hang on for the ride, because I have a destination in mind.
This article was about Justin’s recent trip to a museum of Anne Frank. We all know who Anne Frank is, well, the smart ones anyways. Please, Google her if you don’t know who she is. She is a very inspirational person, who died too soon because of idiots. Justin wrote in the celebrity guestbook at this museum and said that it was inspiring, that Anne was a great girl and that he hoped she would have been a fan. I find this rather cute, but some people think it was stupid and selfish.
As a writer, I often wonder if certain people were still alive, would they like my work. Would they be a fan? There is nothing wrong with that. That is pretty much what Justin is saying here. People are freaking out! Which makes no sense. A friend told me that she thought it was selfish for him to write such a thing, because none of the other celebrities wrote stuff like that. I am sorry, but your argument is lacking just a bit. The only reason other celebrities didn’t write things like that is because they didn’t think about it. I bet they will now.
There is a point to all this, I’m getting there.
Justin Bieber gets a lot of hate. Everyone loves to hate the Biebs. Why? They say he has no talent, he is immature, and he is rude. Okay, I agree that he has become a bit of a douche lately, fame usually does that to people. Yeah, he is immature, but he is a teenage boy, what do you expect? Just because he is famous does not mean he has to give up having stupid fun, let him have his fun! Talent now, I think he does have talent. I love a few of his songs, and I support him 100% because everyone should get a chance at their dreams.
It’s not just Bieber that gets a lot of hate. Most celebrities are constantly bashed for their imperfect ways. How DARE they not be perfect. They are in the spot light the HAVE to be perfect. But you are wrong. First and foremost, we are all human. We make mistakes every day, and probably more than once a day. Why does someone who just happens to be really good at acting, suddenly have to be perfect? Why are they the subject of your hate? I think it is jealousy, because they have fame and fortune. I bet their lives are not as glamours as they seem.
Moving on though, parents, stop and think. When you talk about a celebrity, bash them and call them ugly names, your kids hear that. Kids see on TV every day, a new celebrity being BULLIED. Now do you see where I am going with this? No? Hang in there.
When you go online and send hate messages to celebrities, that is bullying. Paparazzi is just a bunch of bullies, waiting for just the right picture to make a beautiful person look hideous. Kids see this. Couldn’t this be a reason why there are so many bullies in school. Or at least a contributing factor? If mommy and daddy can bully a famous person, why can’t I bully the kid that sits beside me in math class. You can’t tell me you have thought about that. Who cares if the person being bullied is famous or not, it’s still bullying. Throwing things out of proportion like the Bieber and Anne Frank thing is ridiculous. People are just looking for new ways to put down a celebrity.
Next time you have something bad to say about anyone famous, think about what you are saying. Is it really justified? Should you really say it? How would you feel if someone said the same to you? It just a bunch of bullying. Set a good example for the young, show that you can respect talent, even if you don’t think it’s talent. No matter how many times you say someone is not talented, there is is at least one person out in the world that thinks they are talented. Stop being so ugly to one another. Make the world a better place.
