Nobody really knows what sort of effect fame has on a person. To us, being famous is all about having more money than you know what to do with, partying every day and night with fabulous people, and being waited on by servants. But the 30+ celebrities mentioned below can tell you about the darker side of being rich and famous that nobody wants to talk about.
Selena Gomez spoke out to Vogue about the mental health challenges she faced as a teenage star. She admitted that she would have acute panic episodes both before and after her performances. She also stated that she was incredibly lonely and that her self-esteem had taken huge hits because of those experiences.
As a result, in 2013, Selena made the conscious decision to end her 13-show tour early to check herself into a treatment facility. While she understood how devastated her fans would be, she knew how much more important it was for her to take a step back from the exhaustive nature of her work, even for just a moment, to recoup.
