Over Exposure of Young Celebrities

Goodness talk about being over hyped?!  This young actress (Millie B. Brown) has been so over exposed in less than one year since the Netflix Series came out last summer (Stranger Things) it’s no wonder many people are finding her now overbearing, full of herself and obsessed with fame. I’ve read comments as far as some saying they hate her, that’s taking it too far for me. Nonetheless, I have to agree fame has certainly given her and some of her co-actors a very big head. Seeing her face plastered everywhere has been a HUGE turn off. I don’t hate her, I WOULD NOT waste my time or life hating someone, especially a kid, but I can’t say I like her either.

Netflix Original Series

Thank you Netflix for all these series, especially the serie based on the life of Pope Francis from his youth, to his days during the horrors of the last military dictatorship that disappeared around 30,000 people. That airplane scene will forever be etched in my mind as a testament to how far human cruelty can go. Juana Ines proves Mexico still has excellent talent beyond silly soap operas. Regarding Stranger Things, I find October to far away and I hope we will have Eleven for many more seasons.

Celebrity Obsession

“The question is: Why? Why are we so determined to worship at the altar of celebrity? Why are we so desperate to turn men into gods?”  This is a question  posted in this article and it’s also a question I’ve been asking myself for many years now. It’s ok to like celebrities and enjoy their work but it becomes unhealthy when we worship them as demigods.  In this obsessed social media world I think we should stop and take stock of our lives instead of trying to live vicariously through famous people. Something’s very wrong with society if we seek fame out of anything in life today.

One prime example of taking obsession too far is the hottest show of the moment; Stranger Things. I literally STOPPED looking up information about the show or the costars because of how creepy and obsessed a lot fans have become. Instagram and Twitter is filled with them and what’s more disturbing is that most of these fans are under age and by under age I mean between the ages of 12-14 years old. I’m grateful I stopped looking up info on Instagram and on Twitter and most of all I’m more than glad I missed the hype surrounding this show. It’s a wonderful show and the first season was great and I wonder just how much can the second season live up to the first one. We need to find ways to end this ridiculous obsession we have not only with celebrities but with social media itself.

Winona Ryder

In the early 90’s she was my favorite actress.  I use to be elated when people use to tell me I resembled her.  I loved her  in Heathers, 1969, Great Balls of Fire, Mermaids, Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael, Edward Scissorhands, Bram Stocker’s Dracula, The Age of Innocence, The House of the Spirits and Little Women.  I hated the movies Reality Bites and the Crucible. Sometime  after Little Women I stopped following her career. Now that she’s much older she seems to be making good choices once again.  I still find her talented and incredibly beautiful.
