The Perks of Being Non-Famous

#4: More Time & Individuality – It may look like famous people put in just a few hours a day, but most famous people are totally consumed by their professions. They have to be, or they’ll get run over by the next best thing (emphasis on people being viewed as things here). Plus, they have tons and tons of people bombarding them with energy—and seeing them exactly the way they want them to be instead of for who they are. Celebrities get lost in the public eye, media portrayals of them, and a host of other negative things, so that their individuality gets completely sucked-up by other people. If you think about it, that really sux! When you’re non-famous you get to be yourself, and you usually have much more time to do so!

#3: Less Moochers & Freeloaders – Famous people have lots of money, but everyone wants a piece of the pie. From small requests to huge ones, famous people are constantly asked for money, things, time, endorsements, appearances, and anything that mooches off their status and income. It’s bad enough when you have a financially challenged friend who always wants to bum food and rides, but with celebrities, the takers may not even be your friends at all! See below:

#2: Real Friends & Real Love – How does a celebrity ever know who their real friends and loves are? Even when famous people have friends they’ve known their whole lives, they may never be sure if those people stick around just because of their current status. Of course, people will fall over a celebrity, but it often has nothing at all to do with the actual person. Going through your life without brokowski friends or significant others that love you for you sounds awful! What a great perk of being non-famous!

#1: Privacy & Freedom – We saved the most obvious for last! But think about it: not being able to go to the store or step outside your house or BREATHE without someone following you around and invading your privacy. Some things (or a lot of things) you just don’t want a bunch of people seeing, and if you want to have a bad hair day, you don’t need some stupid entertainment show calling you out for it. Nor do you want to have to hide away from society just to escape the media madness. When you consider how much freedom and privacy you lose, it’s a little shocking that anyone would ever want to be famous! Instead, why not brokowski?
