Being a celebrity- such as famous film stars or sports personality - brings problems as well as benefits. Do you think that being a celebrity brings more benefits or more problems?

It is generally believed that being a famous person has its fair share of pros and cons.
However
, in my view, the perks of
celebrity
life
outweighs its disadvantages. In
this
essay, I will examine both sides with reasons and appropriate examples: where necessary, and
further
establish my view point. There are few problems associated with famous people.
First
, the most glaring issue in their
life
: lack or personal space. They are constantly being followed by paparazzi and fans, due to their
celebrity
status, which leaves a little or no space for their personal
life
. As a consequence, their loved ones suffer and family
life
is compromised.
For example
, in my country majority of the
film
stars and sports stars suffer from family issues, which often publish in newspapers and magazines.
This
is a dark side of superstar
life
.
In Addition
, most of the celebrities' careers are short lived, which makes their
life
vulnerable. If they could not earn enough money during their prime period, they struggle to maintain their lifestyle after their prime period is over. The competition is steep at
this
level, as so many people struggle to get to the top, and in that race, it is obvious that people on top will lose their status, sooner or later.
As a result
, these people often suffer from depression because they are no longer being able to earn that much as they are used to do.
For instance
,
Accept space
,
in a survey conducted by a
film
magazine, Starblitz, shows that 30 percent of
film
stars and 50 % of sports heroes have confessed that they are battling mild to severe form of depression. It is hard to stay at the top for a longer time, which affects celebrities' mental health greatly.
In contrast
, there are major benefits of leading a
celebrity
life
.
First
, these people attract a lot of fan following, and they are being venerated wherever they go.It gives them supreme satisfaction of achievement.They are celebrated everywhere and garner respect from the mass.
For example
, in my country cricketers and
film
stars are treated like a deity and worshipped by their fans.
This
makes them feel accomplished about their achievements.
Additionally
, one of the most important benefits of
celebrity
life
is money. It is well known that their
celebrity
status brings concomitant benefit: wealth.
As a result
, they could afford to lead an extravagant lifestyle, which ordinary people envy. They not only earn money from their profession, but from the advertising industry as well. As an example, in India majority of the products are being promoted by
film
stars and cricketers. Because of their wide reach, Companies find easier to market products. In conclusion,
although
there are few problems associated with famous people, but the advantages are way more inferior.
Hence
, according to me, It is a privilege to become famous, as not everyone gets the chance, and clearly the plus points are far more important in
life
than it's negatives.

Word Count

IELTS says that you should write a minimum of 250 words in writing task 2. If you go under word count you will lose marks in task response.

A very long essay will not give you a higher band score.

Aim for between 260 to 290 words in writing task 2. This will ensure a concise essay and will be realistic in terms of time management. You have only 40 minutes to write the essay and you need around 10 minutes of planning time, so you will not be able to write a long essay in 30 minutes.
