Celebrities As Role Models?

Life in the public eye can be a stressful existence for many celebrities. For many of them, fame was not necessarily the driving force behind their career decisions – for example, a young child playing football in the park with their friends is not doing so in order to achieve fame and celebrity, but because they love playing football in the park with their friends. Naturally, once talent has been identified, then greater ambitions can come to the fore, but I firmly believe that for many talented people, fame is the least of their concerns at first. Footballers love football. Singers love singing.

Viewed from this perspective, it seems unreasonable to expect a celebrity to act as any sort of role model. Why does their success lead to such expectations, above and beyond what would be expected of any ordinary person, when that was never part of their ambitions in the first place? Maybe some would say this is a cop-out. All people should be trying to leave the world in a better shape than it was in when they turned up, and celebrities can have an outsized impact in this respect. Celebrities are not angels, just the same as the rest of us, but they should understand and respect the fact that the impact their behavior can have on other people is enormous. Fame, money and power do not excuse bad behavior just because they make it easier.
