Luckily, we have no casts anymore, but all people are still classified according to the society they revolve in. Are we students, top managers or housewives? Or perhaps we dazzle everyone from red-carpet ceremonies and evoke a wave of gossip? Celebrities are a truly fascinating social group. When entertainment is so essential, we can divide all people into those who create shows and their audience. From this perspective, the community of stars is very scarce and extremely privileged.
The life of celebrities certainly differs from the everyday routine of ordinary people but it shall not be the reason for envy. We often think “If I were Brad or Oprah, everything would be different”. But it does not mean that every pop star celebrates their fame like we do. According to the common principle, many people are dissatisfied with their reality no matter how much money and attention of media it brings. Johnny Depp may be as distressed as an average public school teacher who cannot cope with circumstances. All of us – workers, celebrities, housewives, and politicians – are united with a gross dissatisfaction in our lives.
Celebrities and ordinary people are different, they also have something in common, but neither of them would enjoy living in the society where all individuals are like them. Stars strongly need ordinary people to pay to box offices, and the audience cannot normally function without watching their favorite show on a Sunday night.
