Just back from grad night. Not mine of course =)
Had a short chat with the young generation of the alumni, not that I’m any older by the way, and were discussing about our plans for the alumni anniversary event next year, of which one item was the “showcase” of our alumni celebrities.
Of which, one of them suddenly mention he saw one of the celebrities @ HV 3 months back, when the celebrity was reportedly to be overseas. And the way he put it, he seem disgusted that the celebrity was back in SG and was seen with the rumored partner.
I wasn’t angry, I totally can understand the youngsters’ mentality. But it led me to think that celebrities are also human. They have their privacy. Yes, they are reportedly to be overseas undergoing training or whatsoever, but they have the freedom to fly back to their hometown to visit their family, to settle their personal stuff. What’s wrong with that? It’s not like their lives are yours to control. They have their rights to be wherever they want, the rights to do whatever they want. They are just like you, a normal human being, who chose the entertainment industry as their stepping stone to earn big bucks. Whatever life they have, is practically NONE of our business. As long as they produce good work to entertain us, which is what’s more important, isn’t it?
