Does fame and fortune make a person truly happy?
I disagree that fame and fortune can make you happy. I don’t think fame and fortune can make you happy because once people become famous they get way to used to the fame and it starts to get annoying or boring . Famous adults and teens can’t leave their house being noticeable without being followed around or bugged. Some teens like the attention but as they get older they seem to not want it as much and just want to live their everyday life. As famous adults and teens are younger they’re happy but as time passes they start to get into trouble and get on drugs.
I think fame and fortune could possibly make you happy if you could be famous but still live your everyday life without so much attention. Beyoncé has said that though “She likes the attention when she’s onstage, she’d be happier if she could cut it off when she isn’t performing and just enjoy her life”. This is why I think that fame and fortune don’t always make you happy because you can never live your everyday life normally if you become famous like Beyonce said if she could “cut it off” when she’s not on stage then she would be much happier with the fame and fortune then I think you could be happy.
I think people who think fame can make you happy is wrong. According to Can Fame Make You Happy Lawrence said that simply stepping outside her front door gives her anxiety. I think too much fame and fortune can cause the Celebrities health problems, such as Lawrence having anxiety. Lawrence said “simply stepping outside her front door gives her anxiety”. Celebrities can’t as much as walk their dogs without being photographed. It causes a lot of stress and sport injury's can be costly.
Another reason I do not think that fame and fortune can make you happy is you have to be careful who you trust. According to Rockwell “it could be difficult when you’re a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends. Stars have to wonder if their “friends” like them for who they are or for what they have”. This statement/quote has a big effect on why I don’t think fame and fortune can make your happiness because it’s another reason for Famous people to have a lot and stress and have to figure out who is truly there for them when they need them always have to worry about who’s their true friends and who’s only there for what they have.
There is some things that persuade me that fame and fortune can make you happy but there is more things that make me think that fame and fortune would be the least of someone’s happiness, being famous the money’s good but when it comes to your private life there is a lot of stress with not so much relieve, and money can’t buy someone’s happiness.
