"Occupational Hazard"

Every job comes with its own occupational hazard. Although some might be more of a 'hazard' than an actual hazard, e.g. having 'no life' if you work in an office because you're mostly stuck in a confined space like your cubicle or your car while commuting, having back problems due to long hours of sitting, etc.

If you work in the entertainment industry, the occupational hazard would be less privacy and more "haters". Haters here are in quotes because... well not everyone who give a negative comment is a hater, some are merely stating facts, and it's part of your job as a "celebrity" to accept that part. You can't have all the glamour and no downside.

I'm talking about this because there have been a rage of videos about many "celebrities" (because they are mostly self-proclaimed) who are criticized, and the people who are defending them give the "well, can you do better?" defence.

As long as you live, you'll need to learn to accept criticism. If you choose to become a celebrity, get ready to face an ocean of it. Ocean is the correct description, because like waves, criticism come and go, but some hit harder than others.

For those who choose to be a celebrity or artist, living under the public eye is part of your occupational hazard. If you don't like it, you could always opt out. You can't just have the glitz and glamour of being a celebrity, understand that there is always a dark side.

Another thing about "celebrities", I'm not saying it's right for people to stalk, I'm just saying it happens, and you can't file a police report for every "bully" on the internet. Grow up and accept that it's part of your life should you choose to be a queen of camwhore. If you want to avoid copy cats, post things that are unique to you, and people would need to go to great lengths to imitate it. Internet stalkers do no harm whatsoever to the person they stalk. If the stalking happens in the real world, take actions, don't go crying when a person virtually stalk you. You gave them easy access to your life in the first place, yes? Too many people tag every location to visit, and it's easy to see a pattern. If you need so much attention, why cry foul when people give you attention? Because "it's the wrong type of attention"? Well beggars can't be choosers, and you are a beggar of attention, so take what you have, or stop begging.

That's what J_Fish has to say! Au revoir!
