Don’t get me wrong(This is how you know this is going to be really opinionated), I have a lot of idols in my life that are famous. Robert Downey Jr,Chance The Rapper,Donald Glover, and Issa Rae just to name a few. But there is something about these up and coming celebrities(or rather celebrities in my age range) That I just can’t stand. Recently Jake Paul has been in the news for doing normal young adult stuff, now I get it I’m 21 I do*have done* stupid stuff. But this guy is going to places that are dare I “dickish”. Some of the things he has done is make his home address public for what ever reason,filmed himself getting arrested(which turned out to be totally fake), and generally causing a disturbance around the neighborhood. The city council is currently decided whether to file a class action lawsuit against him and Disney has severed all ties with him. The only thing I can say is Why?. Not why is this all happening to him. But why did he get all this attention in the first place. I remember when Vine was a thing and everyone was trying to get their six seconds of fame. And Jake Paul was one of those individuals that was really trying hard to get himself out there. But when vine ended everyone migrated to YouTube. And that just caused and entirely new shit storm of YouTubers. I heard Jake Paul’s song “Everyday Bro” and I cringed so hard that couldn’t get past the 40 second mark. It’s like fame comes in abundance but at the same time not at all. People will try to do anything to get the views or the attention where ever possible. Like the two idiots that got in trouble for streaming deaths of their family and friend’s. In the first instance some guys livestreamed their friend drowning and you could hear them snickering in the back ground, and in the second instance a young girl snapchatted her sisters death and said she didn’t “give a fuck”. She has gotten so much attention thst there was a facebook page created to letting her go free. I am shocked, stunned and disgusted that people are willing to go this low to gain fame. But some people have pointed out something very important. It’s the fact that these kind of people were always running around. It’s just the fact that now they have a platform that allows them to show their stupidity and unfortunately there are a lot of people who follow them. The standard of fame and who can get famous has changed so much, so much so that fame is a dirty word(at least to me).
