Do all creative minds need to use drugs? Have we stopped believing in a completely clean human body and creativity? Many of our most creative minds tell us at one time or another they tried some form of drugs. Madonna comes to mind when early in her career she admitted to “heavy partying.” She realized she could not perform and create the sexually stimulating videos and music while under the influence.
While teen pop idols have emerged with such cute faces like Justin Bieber, will he to succumb to drugs as a way to cope? Mary J Blige had her own demons to sort out with using. Eminem, who not only catapulted to the top of the charts as one of the strongest white rapper’s. He told us his story through lyrics that hone in our obsessions with sex, love, fantasy and money. He too was sunken into a drug lifestyle when he first took the microphone in hand.
Many of our stars and starlets have died as a direct result of over medication usage. Street narcotics keep many in the magic world for a lifetime. Marilyn Monroe was one of the best loved movie stars for her time and still has a following today. Marilyn’s over dose began to show that fame was not the fairy tale many of us thought it was. Anna Nicole Smith and her son Daniel Smith their over doses shocked the world. While the Doctors who wrote multiple prescriptions are still in court.
Our most famed musician of this century Michael Jackson. His own admission that he needed help landed him in some famous rehabs. Then new medications were given. When he was found with his live in Doctor present we all were shocked. “Dead Jackson found with Doctor present.” Headlines blasted Doctors for writing multiple prescriptions to the rich and famous. Michael’s own private doctor could have never made the money he did without Michael Jackson’s need to sleep, so we were told.
We have all most come to expect a death or two every year from our lot of idols. Nearly all have been seeking to quell the fame’s loud noises. Fan’s drumming in their ears daily. Photographers staked out around their homes attempting to catch some morsel to feed us.
The question is not if the newly famed need drugs, but if they have to get them to fit in? Is this a culture all its own? Or does having a creative mind and temperament force us to seek medications of some sort to calm our desires?
