The Price of Fame

14 Oct

By Parisienne

Last month, pictures of Robert Pattinson were posted online.  He came out of an agency in L.A. looking angry and balling up his fist at the paparazzo that took the photos.  I’m not going to link to the website here because I refuse to give them hits.  I have never seen a photo of Rob angry before and have read many fan encounters with him and all of them are extremely positive.

The pretending that one is in a relationship with someone else takes a toll after a while.

So to Rob, I say:  The next time you are driving down Sunset or any other location you need to go.  Play this song as loud as you can on your stereo speakers and know that you have fans that support your work.

Kristen, people judge you by your actions not your words.  You want to be taken seriously?  Take responsibility for your self. You come into this world alone and you die alone.  No one else takes responsibility for YOU but YOU.

Please join us for an open  discussion all this weekend.  Starting Friday 10/14/2011@7pE

    Paris-

    This I believe in it 100%.

    U said: “No one else takes responsibility for YOU but YOU.”

    Why do u think so many young adults today fail to grasp this concept? Do u think entitlement is one of the problems among this generation? I mean people expect things to be handed to them. Have we become that lazy that we tolerate people claiming to be victims yet clearly having opportunities most young adults her age will probably never have access to. Do u think it’s more of a cultural problem?

      Great comment OB! And Paris I love this article!

      I think we have become lazy as a society and we are a generation of instant gratification. Finding someone who has a strong work ethic is extremely rare and it’s usually found in someone who is in their 30s and up. There are many responsible, hardworking people in their teens and 20s and I base it on the fact they have parents that taught them to work hard for what they want.

      Why do “we” have to give in every time someone says, “I want! I want!”?? It is churning out spoiled, snooty, arrogant, ungrateful individuals who will lose their you-know-what the minute someone says, “NO”. They have no idea what sacrifice means and they will just pass this on to their children, heaven forbid they have any.

        Oh and I include those who wipe their bums with Ben Franklins. We aren’t all so lucky, ya know…*sarcasm*

          I agree with these two posts and your post below LB.

    • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 5:53 PM #

      OB,

      ITA with you. I don’t think its a cultural problem. I think its a problem with society today. the “I don’t give a crap” attitude has to do with the parents, IMO. I think they let their kids get away with things they couldn’t get away when they were younger because of their parents. Does that make sense?

      • Littlebells October 14, 2011 at 6:02 PM #

        I think there’s the “I don’t give a crap” and the “I just want to be their friend!” Parents shouldn’t be “friends” until the kid is out of the house and paying their own rent. Just sayin…

      • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:10 PM #

        Well I think parents today want to live vicariously through their children to extend their youth. So they become there friends instead of being a parent. IMO!! I mean if u do your job right your kids will want to emulate u instead of u wanting to emulate your child. Does that sense?

        • Littlebells October 14, 2011 at 11:35 PM #

          I’ll take your Standing O and raise you an “Amen!”

          Hi! how are you?

          • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:23 PM #

            Very good. Sorry it’s taking me awhile to respond. I’m trying to hold my tongue given the topic.

            • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:24 PM #

              LOL its ok. It took me a while to write it.

  7. Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:20 PM #

    School is not for everyone. Some people learn better in real situations. However, street smarts requires more work and motivation. U can’t fake substance and that’s what study and hard work provides, school or no school. IMO!!

    • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:26 PM #

      ITA, why do you think people who fake having substance are thrown into situations where they have unrealistic expectations put on them?

      • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:35 PM #

        Well given this person is suppose to be an “actress” I guess they hoped one day, just one day, that perhaps she would finally show up and “act.” No seriously!! Not to pounce on someone who’s shortsighted impaired.. In the end, it’s a matter of making a bad investment.

        • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:36 PM #

          LOL!

          Yes but this person lacks motivation. IMO

          • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:44 PM #

            Well the real probelm is the fact this person is not an artist. True artist generate their own motivation. They study and prepare and propel themselves to be innovative. U know what I mean?

            • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:45 PM #

              I know what you mean. Some people are given opportunities because of where their family members work.

              • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:48 PM #

                Yep! And some are given opportunities because their parents will allow their child to do things that others won’t.

                • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:50 PM #

                  I agree I think its sad that parents think “Oh my kid would be great in this!” The child isn’t and then suffers as a lack of the parents misguided guidance.

                  • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:51 PM #

                    Thats where i think the sense of entitlement comes in to play as well. Most parents don’t want to listen to their kids and continue to push them into whatever they’re doing by saying “You’re doing great!” “It will get easier”

                    • Open Book October 16, 2011 at 2:48 PM #

                      Paris-

                      This is really a great observation.

                      U said: “i think the sense of entitlement comes in to play as well. Most parents don’t want to listen to their kids and continue to push them”……..

                      Standing O!! If I may add. When parents continue to push their kids. The children have problems later in life forming their own critical opinions and identity IMO!!

                      Open Book,

                      I thank you. *takes bow* 🙂

        • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:39 PM #

          Why would film makers take the risk on a “bad investment” though unless money is changing hands? IMO

          • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:40 PM #

            Also one cannot keep going by word of mouth all of their life. That will dry up really quickly once people realize that the talent has no talent.

            • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:46 PM #

              OH!!!!!! That ship has sailed a looooooooong time ago. LOL!! The cat is already out the bag and running around reaking havock on the place.

              • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:48 PM #

                LOL well then someone needs to go get some catnip to help the poor cat out because the cat is looking bad.

                • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:49 PM #

                  Yep! Like caught in a oil spill bad.

                  • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:52 PM #

                    Yep. Sad thing is I don’t feel sorry for the cat.

                      I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    I have a Q. Where do u think we learn most of our values as individuals? By society or by our parents?

    • Parisienne October 14, 2011 at 8:30 PM #

      I think both. However, its the parents that should give the child the proper foundations at home in order to hande societal pressures. Clearly in some cases, the parents themselves lack the same foundations. IMO

      • Open Book October 14, 2011 at 8:51 PM #

        I’m going to have to come back tomorrow and comment. I have a lot more to say. However, this is a great discussion. I’m going to have to call it a night. Great article Paris.

            Goodnight all!

    • 4string October 17, 2011 at 8:58 AM #

      I think it’s a mix of both, but I think it’s mainly the parents/family that influence values. I haven’t seen these pix and need to get caught up (been in NYC) the last few days and just got back in town.

  9. Littlebells October 14, 2011 at 11:47 PM #

    Wow ladies, I am so disappointed I couldn’t participate in the live discussion. 😦

    This is my concern. The generation of “Me, me, meeeeee!!!” is starting to have families. Where the heck do we go after “Me, me, me!”? “Mine, mine, mine”???? Seriously, I know that sounds a little silly, but if this generation came from parents wanting to live vicariously through them, what’s this next generation going to be brought up on?

    I think there is a real war raging in families. I don’t care if it’s a mom/dad/ 2 dads, 2 moms, single parent, pink, gray, white, black, purple…parents need to fight for the well being and moral code of their children. We need to fight for perseverance, not getting what you always want, being GRATEFUL for what you have, knowing it is ok to not win, being kind and courteous, having a great work ethic, etc…

    Shame on those who just expect society to take care of their kids. And shame on those who think it’s a teacher’s job.

    Ok, I’ll be back…:)

    Rob often walks with his hand in a fist, I could link to lots of pics like that, but he was ambushed coming out of his agent’s office by a particularly rude pap, X-17 are the worst, they say provocative things in order to get a response. They’re the problem, not anything Rob is doing.

    Getting as far away from Kristen as possible seems to have been doing Rob a great deal of good this year. He’s hardly spent any time with her since they wrapped filming BD, and now of course they will be promoting that film, but we’ll see what he does in about a month, after the film has opened. He appears to have been enjoying himself while he’s been on his own in LA for the past 3 months.

    • littlebells October 15, 2011 at 3:15 AM #

      Hi Coco!

      I think Rob handles himself beautifully when it comes to dealing with sleazy, greazy scumbags. ITA that getting away from Kristen has been very good for him. I obviously dont know either of them, but when he is around her for a long period of time, his aura alters. And not for the better. I hope he has been enjoying himself and God bless him once junkets and all that heavy hitting promo heats up!

      • Coco October 15, 2011 at 2:57 PM #

        Probably the rock bottom for Rob was while he was stuck filming BD and he did that VF interview where he came across as lonely and said whatever their relationship was that it was “traumatic.” He had been with her day and day out for months at that point, and he sounded almost depressed. Doesn’t say much about their relationship.

        He also made comments later about how filming BD had seemed like it took forever, was making him crazy, and even suicidal (he said this at either the Berlin or Paris press conference for WFE). Funny, you would think that it would have been one of his happiest times, being that he was with KStew everyday. Instead, it seems like he was miserable much of the time. He certainly hasn’t gone out of his way to be with her since they stopped working together and he successfully avoided being photographed with her during his 10 day stay in London last month.

        • Littlebells October 15, 2011 at 11:13 PM #

          Coco,

          What is your thought or opinion about how journalists write interviews? Do you find certain journalists or magazines more reliable than others?

        • Parisienne October 16, 2011 at 3:09 PM #

          Coco,

          Hi! I apologize that I keep missing you but I agree with everything you say in both your responses. I think despite the hardships of filming the franchise and doing all that comes with that (promotion, etc) Rob will come out a better person for it in the end. IMO.

    • Open Book October 16, 2011 at 3:51 PM #

      Well I think R is headed for great things given what he’s already been through. Yet, I recognize it’s always those last few minutes of the game that’s the hardest to endure. It’s wonderful when your job does not suck the life out of u, literally. All I can say is night & day in terms of R while filming BD vs. Cosmopolis and WFE. During WFE and Cosmo u could see an artist being re-invigorated and stimulated. I hope R can continue having fun in the sun!
