Beautiful people, Palm trees and Fabulous life all day, all night. As a little girl I watched Marilyn Monroe and Esther Williams films, fantasized about that neverland so far far away...I was dancing around the apartment in my ballerina tutu, mom's red lipstick pretty much all over my face and a hairbrush in my hand instead of a microphone.What a little eintartainer I was then... I can still remember how much I wanted to get a part in one of the old black and white musicals, I even had this one CD I played over and over again, with all the greatest songs from the movies. One time I created a whole show with my sister and brother + made my parents watch a performance. I gave up that idea long ago, but however my love for the glamorous life of Hollywood still remains. What it would be like if I could walk that red carpet... just once. Wearing a dress more expensive than my house and a hottie on my arm which would make all the other girls jealous. I bet all of us thought about it at least once...and also thought about what's the point of being famous anyway.
You can have all the pretty things and name in the headlines, but can this truly make you happy? Or it does just leave you empty?
I remember seeing a Marilyn Monroe documentary about her last sessions... she said that all she ever wanted was to run away, somewhere nobody would knew her, because all everybody saw in her was Marilyn Monroe. Just a stage name, a shell...People would look at her, but not see her...who was Norma Jeane Mortenson? Nobody... but still, it's who she really was. A scared little girl who just wanted to be loved.
It got me to thinking...nowadays all we look for is beauty, perfection... It's makes me kind of sad how superficial everything got. It's not easy for us normal girls...not all have curves like Jessica Alba or are blessed with beauty like Miranda Kerr.We want to be like that because we see them everywhere we look, but we can't be like them, that's why it's so important to learn how to feel good in your own skin and appreciate what you do have. Imagine what is it like for them:You feel sloppy one day, go out without make up, you end up on the front page, you gain a few pounds and everybody knows... I honestly don't know how I could deal with it. I bet they would kill for some privacy from time to time. All spins in a big circle, you want to be someone else from time to time, and he wants to be you. We can't switch however, so fight for the things you love, and do what you love. Life can take you to some unexpected places!
