The price of fame: how celebrities really treat their fans
Share This Article:
Many celebrities walked the red carpet this Sunday during the EMA’s, a massive music event with all the biggest names in the music industry. For most of the people who were there, this was a memorable evening. After spending the whole day queueing in the cold, nothing could be more exciting than being taken to the same place where all these incredible singers were going to show up. I was there and even though I am not a committed fan of any of the celebrities who attended the event (only Eminem’s performance made me go), it was still fascinating. For one hour, they walked the red carpet and drove their fans insane. While some celebrities stopped every time they heard someone shouting their name and took photos, hugged fans and talked to journalists, others simply did not bother and completely ignored the fuzz. Let’s be more specific: Liam Payne, for instance, who I could even barely recognize, showed a smile constantly and talked to all their fans, taking much more time than any other celeb, whereas Demi Lovato appeared snobby and vainglorious, not showing any affection for her fans nor giving them the minimum attention. I didn’t mind, but her fans must have. It was an exciting opportunity for them. We all know how fanatical fans behave and Demi certainly has many groups of devoted fans who follow her everywhere, sacrificing everything to talk to her, take a quick selfie or even just to see her. She knew she would not be there for long and those few minutes would represent pretty much all of what her fans would remember. Now that the show is over, all they can remember is her walking the red carpet disdainfully, without even looking sideways. It was disappointing, to say the least.
