I just heard Human being by MI on the Beat fm. This was Toolz' song of the week (or day, not sure which). Before she played the song she mentioned that she loves the song because she can completely relate to it and it makes her so emotional. In my mind I was wondering 'what's this one on about?' then I heard the song and I understood.
Coincidentally Ibinabo Fiberisima just replied her 'haters' who castigate her for having children by different fathers and ended this by stating that being famous doesn't make her less human.
This makes me wonder, why are celebs held to different standards? For instance there's probably some lady in your neighbourhood who has many children from numerous men, it's no secret but no one points fingers. Yet when it comes to celebrities fingers aren't only pointed, the celebrities are judged, insulted, bullied, ridiculed and castigated.
Like Toolz also said; the average person wears something that doesn't sit well on them and everyone just sees it and quietly observes that they don't look too nice, but when it a celebrity they make it very personal and make sure to get the message across in the most vitriolic and hurtful ways possible.
Why do (some) people treat celebs and public figures as less human? Do they actually forget that they're human? Do they just not care? Do they deliberately aim to hurt them? Or are they just jealous?
Sorry guys, seriously I'm sorry but I have to say this. I apologize in advance to Memphis et al. But you see this Ibinabo situation, IMHO it's classic "he's not promiscuous, he's just bad with protection" situation. You see, if some of us were to keep all those pregnancies we have aborted then some of us would have a dozen offspring from a dozen men. Just saying... (For those who are either virgins/celibate/very good with protection don't chew me raw. You're exempt from the "we" in this paragraph). This is the way I see it and you're very free to disagree but I would also like to hear your thoughts.
I deviate, apologies my people. Do tell; Does being a celebrity make a person less human?
