Weekly writing challenge

Another superstar performed in daring clothing. News? Not really. But now it is a superstar that started out as the girl every little kid wanted to be. Suddenly it is a big topic which causes a lot of debate. I feel torn writing about this subject. See, I’m not sure I really want to add to the hype by writing more about it. Hasn’t she gotten enough attention already?

So let’s go back to the basics here. People grow. That’s a good thing. I’ve grown as a person and continue to do so. We are all just people. We go through phases. Some  we are proud of. Some not so much. Decisions made in the past, however, should not dictate the rest of your life. The beauty of the freedom we have is that we can be who we want to be. I don’t think anyone can decide who we are but ourselves.

Child superstars grow up and should be allowed to make their own decisions. If you play a certain part in a series or movie, that does not change you as a person. There’s this thing called freedom of expression. I can totally imagine you would not want to live as other people require you to do. All of us have to make choices and live with them. I’ve changed, my views and opinions changed, my lifestyle changed. Why would it have to be any different for a famous person.

If you are in the spotlight, everything gets amplified and magnified. Being famous, you don’t have the chance to explore your options or try new things without immediately being judged for it. I say, let people explore. Let people be what they want to be. You don’t have to agree with it. You just have to accept it. If what other people do is the highlight of our day these days, then maybe we should start by taking a good look at ourselves.
