Di stands in for Melanie once again, and asks
How do you feel about ‘celebrities’ getting their fizogs in the press all the time, despite having said they want privacy then still crave for attention, can’t seem to make the headlines without getting their kit off, or basically aren’t happy unless they are slagging someone off.
I considered asking Di to translate this into English, then I figured out what (I think) she was saying. It all has to do with celebrities saying how much they hate all the attention they get while at the same time wanting it to continue, even at the expense of making a fool of themselves in public or having a public spat with someone. That’s what I’m going to answer, anyway…
It’s like Oscar Wilde said: “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” All celebrities are, at their core, narcissists, and they worry that, if people stop talking about them, they’ll be forgotten. They believe that any publicity is better than no publicity, so they’ll do pretty much anything to give them a fix.
