Child stars have it rough?


People always overreact when they see a celebrity they thought was “flawless” do something reckless. They say the star has changed when the only place they’ve seen them was on their TV screen as a child.

It’s pretty normal to not be the same person you were when you were younger. I don’t think it’s any different for celebrities. No, you probably don’t have billions of dollars to spend on worthless things but you’re still the same. Honestly, I wouldn’t act reckless if I had the money to do whatever I wanted.

Instead of constantly bashing these stars we should let them be. Only worry about them if they are interfering with your life. It’s useless to examine their every move for every little thing like what they’re wearing to go food shopping or what they like to do in their free time.

Stars are pressured to be the perfect person they were believed to be when they were younger and act out to get away from that image. It is their choice to do the things that they do. I deem that the celebrities that have grown up should be given the privilege to do what they want without the criticism from others. You’re not paying for their recklessness so it doesn’t matter

For example, Miley Cyrus is a child star that is said to have it “rough.” When she was just 11 years old she was put into the spotlight as the teen sensation Hannah Montana. Now that she is 21 people still compare her to the person she acted as a child. She’s matured greatly and maybe the person Cyrus is today is what she always used to be and we just never saw.

Some people think since they watched them on their TV all their life it’s like they grew up with them so they care about them like the celebrity’s a close friend. They don’t want anything bad to happen to them and want to make sure they’re doing well all the time.

Imagine people constantly judged you by how you used to act. Would you like it?

    i don’t think that they have it as rough as we do in life they don’t have to worry about getting evicted from their home like other people have to also all they have to do is worry about the fans, about photographer, the news, reporters, and other people that could probably mess up their life and their career.

      I think they do have it rough because once they began their life in celeberity they can’t go back to that normal life they had before and they don’t have to worry about their fans all they have to worry is about how are they going to cheer them up in their concert
