An Addict’s Affair
Publication date: May 2022
Living two different lives is a contradiction. Now there’s a trend of using weaknesses for entertainment. It’s often an exaggerated drama, with scandalous hysteria, it’s self-centred and about themselves. A scandalous event is orchestrated about what is not there.
The average person is not a role, there is no role play. There are actors and actresses who want to be the centre of attention. They must have publicity. When they assume a different persona, they are usually at the end of their careers, but use it to stay to be relevant. Their original persona becomes a lie. This affects the lives of their cast and audience. Once the boundary between a performer and an audience has been crossed, they want to rival them as rivals and competitors. There is mass criticism, they are not genuine. Performers cannot dictate their popularity to an audience.
There is a spiteful malice about what entertainers are willing to do to be at the top of the entertainment industry. Their biggest challenge is how to keep their place.
