The percentage of people in the world who eventually become famous is estimated to be about 0.0265 percent. Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be a famous celebrity? Tom Kruse, Mariah Carey, Lebron James, etc. What do you think it would be like to live their life?
“I would be Jennifer Anniston,” said Senior Haley Prim. “She is like 40 years old, she is still gorgeous, she has never been in a scandal, and is just talented.”
Many students aspire to be like celebrities because of things they can relate to. Senior Adam Hartung is a country music enthusiast.
“No doubt in my mind I would be Toby Keith,” said Hartung. “He is a great singer and a patriot. He loves America and I respect that.”
Other students would like to have all of the privileges and material goods that a celebrity has.
“I think it would be cool to be Justin Bieber,” said Senior Ethan Fabel. “Have you ever seen the picture of him and the Victoria’s Secret models? He’s got the money, cars, women, houses and he’s still young.”
Principal Kris Thompson has a different view on being a celebrity.
“I’m not willing to give up my personal privacy for money,” said Thompson. “Everything you do as a celebrity is watched. People make judgements about you and your family all the time.”
