Most people don't have to look at themselves on the front page of almost every magazine and paper every day and have 16 pages of gossip on the TCS about them.
Most people will never know fame and fortune, but there are lots of stories out there of those who do and many end in tragedy and are unfortunate. Many don't understand that every action has a consequence or they learn it with maturity, everyone has life moments that causes them to grow and mature at different rates. This is the same in normal individuals as well; the only issue is there is more publicity among the famous. I am betting there is some sort of normal bell curve out there for the standard population of the rest of us and also for the rich and famous in the US and they are about the same. Some born into fame and fortune turn out wonderful, but we don't hear much about those. Like the news, mainly we hear about the bad things, and we keep watching day after day.
And by this point I would hope people know magazines and newspapers lie, they aren't the most reputable sources for information, and most exist purely for entertainment value.
All IMO of course.
