It's tough being a celebrity

I just saw this article, Man sentenced in Cruise extortion attempt, and I thought how tough it is to be a celebrity. Oh yeah, it's easy to think of the glamour and glitter and the premiers and the awards ceremonies and the designer suits but you get zero personal life and zero privacy.

And it seems that if you attempt to create any minuscule amount of privacy you'll get some scum bag trying to extort money from you by threatening to destroy it, as in the article, or you'll get some sleazy journalist making up rumors to try and sell his latest air sandwich.

My hat is off to people who manage to live through being a celebrity.
