Being famous on Instagram isn't all that it is cut out to be according to Paris Jackson...
While many of us "normal" folks would be thrilled with the idea of being talked about and having thousands of followers on social media, famous people reveal that there is a dark side to the fame.
Whenever a celebrity talks about the darker elements of their fame the general public is usually less than impressed. "They did seek that limelight after all," people claim, adding that they knew what they were going into. Well that is correct in a way, but then again we really have no idea what it's like to live in a fishbowl, with people always waiting to pounce on every little thing that you do. And in the world of instantaneous sharing of information in social media, fame takes on a whole new dynamic.
This is something that Paris Jackson seems to have gotten frustrated about. As the daughter of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, she was born into fame and is a member of an entertainment dynasty.
While some kids of other famous parents do revel in the limelight like Brooklyn Beckham, who has become an Instagram pro, each person is is different. Paris has gone on to her own Instagram page to address the pressure that her fame is putting upon her.
"I am expected to literally sit all day replying to comments people leave me (positive and negative)? I have AA meetings to go to, family obligations, personal obligations. It's so selfish that I am literally attacked on every thing I post just because people that I don't even know aren't getting what they want." the seventeen year old wrote.
While she did point out that she does " appreciate the love and support;" however, she added that "the expectations are ridiculous."
Then she cited her father's experience , and she posted that "the expectations for my dad were ridiculous. He didn't owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds daily" In an ominous note she added " I will not let that happen to me".
She does have a point though, yes she is rich and famous, but being constantly ridiculed on a daily basis can get to anyone, particularly a teenager.
