Celeberties...Why?

It all started with the Britney Spears meltdown in 2007. You remember that don't you? The head shaving, umbrella wielding, psychotic break? I remember it. I was sad. Say what you want, but I loved Britney back in her youthful days.

For example, most of you might remember this performance. It is my favorite one she ever did.

Mtv Music Awards 2000

Seven years later she fell apart. She's never been the same since. How and why? Drugs and childhood stardom. Apparently these two things mixed together equal mental disorders. I know she's made her comeback, but like I said, she's not the same. She has never been that on or that awesome since. Not that I don't still love her. I do, but still. Not. The. Same.
 
Next up and this one is by far the saddest for me:
 
Heather Ledger's accidental overdose in 2008. I cried. Literally, broke down and cried. I guess because like most of the rest of the world, no one knew he had a darker side. He still is one of my favorite actors and up until his death I'd pictured him as some of my characters in my novels.  Maybe that is why I felt such a loss when he died. Incredible actor with such a bright future gone way too soon. Why? Drugs and mental disorder. =(

Dark Knight - Joker...Why So Serious?

More recently we have Amanda Bynes. Oh man, this poor girl. WTF happened? She was another one that had an incredibly bright future ahead of her and then all of a sudden she fell from Hollywood's grace and into the drug laden path of screwed up child stars. She was hilarious. Seriously, this girl would have me in stitches when I watched her stuff and she was pretty to boot!

What A Girl Wants

One of my all time favorite guilty pleasure movies. Now, due to drugs and and what doctors think could be schizophrenia she has fallen far off her rocker. Random and lewd tweets. Setting driveways on fire. Let's not even get started on the bad wig choices she's made. I read a few days ago that her mother was recently awarded temporary guardianship over her finances as a judge FINALLY decided Amanda is a danger to herself and others. She is currently seeking medical help involuntarily and I hope she decides to make it voluntary. This is a good comeback I'd really like to see happen.
 
And last but not least, this is a sad one too, Cory Monteith. WHY!!!! Glee will never be the same. I don't think I can watch it anymore. Maybe this last season to see how they wrap up is death in the show, but after that. I. Just. Can't. Another accidental overdose here too.

(Best performance out of all the seasons)!

So I have to ask. WHY, celebrities? Why do you have to do drugs, have meltdowns and or die? I'm afraid to get attached to anymore celebs. I mean, as a writer, they inspire characters. Is Hollywood that jaded and corrupt that people can't keep their heads on straight? I get that the constant invasion of privacy can drive someone insane, but literally? Is it because when you have money drugs come cheap? I know some of these people had a bad history with substance abuse before they were famous, but still. It just makes me sad!
 
Let's get real celebs! Stop with the insanity and drug abuse!! My heart can't take it anymore!

Did you have a favorite celeb that had a meltdown or died? If so who?
 
Bonnie Rae

P.S. I could have mentioned Lindsay Lohan but lets face it, we all saw that train wreck coming back when she was in Parent Trap. Something about the way she tried too hard to get people to like her. I honestly think that being a B type celeb created her downfall. Oh yes, and her quack job parents. Dina Lohan, don't even get me started...
