They wouldn’t set a goal of attending college, going to law school, and becoming a surgeon or teacher

This is what really gets to me, you have some “diva” that’s been around for a couple of years and has three top ten hits. The journalist starts talking to her, asking what she’d like to do now that she has all this money, and she goes, “I really, really want to go back to school and get that Ph.D I was aiming for before I dropped out to become Atlantic’s best selling artist.” I mean, how idiotic must you be to think that anyone of your status can take that seriously? What’s most likely to happen is that some poor college professor or supervisor is going to fin your application papers and give it to the press for a large sum of money.

As of writing this, I remember clearly that Emma Watson, one of the main stars of Harry Potter, is going this path. She’s even announced what school she got accepted into, and it isn’t exactly hard to find her in the first place. All I’m saying is that she should be staying clear of parties, relationships, having sex, going outside, or even roaming around the dorms.

Pretty much, she’s not going to enjoy it because it’s going to be so hard for her to trust anyone, make friendships, and study because you just know that some photographer is going to pay some kid a thousand bucks for a picture or video of her doing something idiotic. It isn’t like she hasn’t done stupid stuff in the past anyway. Students are desperate too, they’re trying to get out of that place debt free!

There’s also the issue that once she does get into the work situation, she’s not going to be able to do anything because it’ll be hard for anyone to take her seriously. Artists tend to have a hard time getting any work because it’s not something appreciated by all, like writing, and she’s always going to have the actress and Harry Potter label stuck to her. People will like her work because it’s been created by a famous person, she could be doing stick figures and they’d be thousands who’d run out and buy them.

We’ve all seen those charity auctions, and we all know how much those grab. Just because she has the degree will make no difference at all. Your value to the public eye is what determines how much your work will fetch. Britney Spears, Madonna, and Oprah, they could do a whole gallery of celebrity freehand lines and circles, and each one would probably fetch an estimated $50 million. Their signature is what will be the selling point.

I think it’s great that famous people want to do more in their life and think outside the box, however, they think too much about what they want and don’t consider the consequences of taking that route. It’s one thing to feel that you’ve dug yourself a hole by getting into the industry, it’s another to dig yourself further, causing more suffering.

None of these people can ever become doctors, it’d only leave a loophole for someone to gain money from tamped prescriptions and diagnosis forms to convince a lawyer that there was malpractice going on. That’s the one fear I have for these people, they live a vulnerable life the moment they get in the magazines and newspapers. Only after they get that million dollar paycheck, they realize it’s too late.
