What exactly is a celebrity?
While there is no single definition for this concept, James Allen expresses his thoughts on it witty and uncanny: “A celebrity is someone who risks his or her life to achieve fame and then hides behind dark glasses to avoid being recognized.” So, while this definition may not be as straightforward or without its own cloak of bias, it still goes a long way toward conveying the tedious process of being that person everyone is familiar with on the outside and the throes that come with being in the public’s eyes.
