A Cry for Help

When you are a celebrity are you not classified as a normal human being? Just because you have mastered your art form and have managed to make allot of money from it you somehow don’t have feelings or can have problems?

So, I have been following Ant McPartlin for awhile as I can see how the industry, media and life can take its toll on you over a period of time. Whatever is happening in Ants life we will never really know what it is, only his close friends and family will really know what he is going through. I do not in any way condone what he did driving while drunk/intoxicated but it is clearly a sign of his mental health deterioration. This blog is not only about him but about all celebrities who are going through pressure and stress that sometimes cannot be hidden.

Unfortunately, Ant has been the latest celeb that has been caught in the public eye but what pisses me off is how people are treating him. Yes, we all make mistakes and because he is a celebrity his is not allowed to make any?? Get a grip keyboard warriors as you disgust me, you have nothing better to do than troll people and write disgusting hurtful comments about them. Why do you do this? It’s quite simple you troll because you are lonely and have nothing better to do with your time!

Ant McPartlin is clearly going through allot and I am disappointed with his management, to be honest. Why, as they are his professional minders and should be taking better care of him. Yep, I went there why because I have seen this happen so many times with celebrities. They get used and abused by there management, pr teams and anyone else that can make money off them but who is actually helping and looking them?

I think it should be compulsory for all artist management teams worldwide to employ counsellors and a welfare officer. These are the people that will spend regular time with the artists working under strict privacy policy contracts to maintain the artists/celebs welfare and intervene when necessary. When that celeb signs to that management company there should be a clause outlining what power the welfare officer has and what they will do if they believe you are a risk to yourself or others and take appropriate action.

Will this happen, probably not as most management companies are more interested in their money as opposed to the celebs welfare. They will only be concerned to a certain extent but if they think you are becoming a problem they seem to move their attention elsewhere. I can’t speak for all management companies but this is the case for most, we all need to start treating all celebs like human beings and with the same level of respect.

We don’t know every celebs past, just because they are on TV/Movies or in the media do we know everything about there past. Exactly, we will never know only dribs and drabs will be filtered through to the media by someone trying to make a quick buck off them.

So, my message to you Ant McPartlin, I don’t know you or your family but I have seen certain information in the media. I can clearly see you have allot going on in your life right now, just because I see you on tv smiling and having a laugh will not show a true reflection of you. My advice to you would take some time off/out of business, speak to a professional and get the help you need. There is no rush to get back to work and you can take some time out for yourself. Surround yourself with people that care about you and that are not just concerned about how much money you can make them!

You only get one life and don’t spend it trying to please other people when you are not happy within yourself. Take a break gather your thoughts and don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are allot more people that care about you than you think. I wish you a speedy recovery and good health.
