I am not writing this letter on behalf of your fans, but on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of people who are frustrated with having celebrities’ life experiences considered news worthy, who are not able to make our living playing ourselves in films, who are forced to realize that they are the only ones who can save themselves.
Money is still power. The lives of celebrities are plastered on the news more often than that of politicians on any given day. Politicians have never been the most reputable individuals and if we should be wasting time discussing what the rich do, equal time need to be devoted to the powerful as well. Distracting us with the crap that consumes lives of people like you, allows those with power to continue stripping away any and every little chance that those of us trying to get by will ever have at getting ahead.
The days of triple threats are few and far between. In order to have a career as a triple threat, actors are basically forced into working in television or film long enough to make enough money and then ‘retire’ into Broadway. There is still money, but not as much money. Although, only the true theatrical artists share their gifts via this medium that is not a widely viewable as those plastered on main screens worldwide.
Ignoring the fact that movies today are faint attempts at remakes of old classics with crappy happily ever after endings that show up during the last five to ten minutes of a movie, actors have turned into pop actors. They are people who come in, appeal to a certain crowd, and literally are paid money to be themselves in front of a camera.
Celebrities are not super human so they should not be expected to live their lives as such. Tiger Woods is a golfer, why should we assume that all golfers are monogamous even though ninety-eight percent of athletes cheat on their significant others? Cameron Diaz is awkward/quirky in real life, why should we assume that this trait makes her a good actress? If you don’t give a crap about getting clean, then don’t get clean. All that I’m asking is that you stop trying to use the free (bad) publicity that you are getting in order to prolong your rapidly disintegrating career.
It’s unfortunate that what celebrities wish for: fortune and fame, is the one thing of which today’s pop celebrities complain. There are plenty of other celebrities with addictions that are not constantly caught by paparazzis. If you have enough money to get high, and forget for a moment whatever it is about your life that you hate so much, do it away from the cameras.
Being an addict myself, I know not only am I the only one who can stop but that I have to want to stop. Nothing that anyone else says, does, or forces upon me can change me. What I resist persists. Considering how much I’ve heard your name lately, you are clearly just going through the motions because you are content being wasted.
In case you are wondering, your mugshots are getting prettier. I am not trying to encourage you. You need to reflect on who your true confidantes are so that you can build a strong support system when you are feeling low. Constantly changing your inner circle and never wanting to be alone are signs that you are lost inside of you. Duh.
In a lame attempt to get to know more regarding your career history, I read that you were a popstar but I cannot recall any of your songs. Maybe you just love attention, regardless of it being negative or not. Maybe you just love drugs, sex and having your addictive crutches. I hate having to listen to the state of your life. No offense but whether or not you live or die has not affect on my life. You don’t know me so there’s no way that you have written me into your will nor will your passing have any emotional effect on my life. You have been type-casted as an addict in films and you are proving to be one in real life, what a stretch.
Someone who wishes that those who really care had much more power and wealth,
Someone who remains optimistic in the face of adversity,
Someone who is working on changing the world,
