Many people dream of fame and popularity, they are often jealous of celebrities whose pictures appear on the covers of magazines and newspapers. However they do not realize that famous people who are always in the public eye do not have easy lives. There is a price to pay for fame.

First of all, I would like to say that when a person becomes famous, he or she does not have much freedom. Normally, a celebrity is being managed by an agent. Celebrities have to follow what the agent has arranged for them. They have to obey the rule and regulation fixed by the agent. For example, they are not allowed to be in love. In order to avoid criticism, they must also follow by strict diet. This will ensure them look good at all times and never lose control under any circumstances. Moreover, for most celebrities, travelling must be done in disguise, but even like that, they are often recognized. There is always someone trying to take pictures or get an autograph in anytime at anywhere. The trip may be interrupted and they cannot enjoy the travelling fully. Celebrities are no longer private individuals and cannot do many things that normal people do, like having lunch in Mamak store, outing with family or go to a football match without causing a sensation. Even casual walk in the mall with friends is also in the public eye. Freedom will be the thing that celebrities yearned and hoped the most since they had lost it after become popular.

In conclusion, we think that the price for fame is too high. It is better to have an ordinary and calm life rather than a stressful public one.
