As you constantly hear in the news about young, more or less talented stars and their immense problems with drugs and drinking, I started to wonder whether fame turns you into an addict. If you look at Amy Whinehouse for example who definitely has great potential, has to cancel her concerts, because she is to 'pissed' to perform on stage. I mean, I'd love to see her live but don't think I should be supporting someone who is repeatedly losing control. What is other people's opinion on that?

I do less care about them.
Let them live in what so ever of life style want to live.
You try to be the righ man/woman.

In my opinion they are self-indulgent, spoilt, losers who need a dose of reality rather than a dose of unreality. Perhaps a trip to see the starving children of Africa might help put things into perspective.

Problem - too young to cope, too stupid to handle the fame.
Do they deserve sympathy? no more than anyone else with a drink or drug addiction, probably a bit less as they have the means & opportunities to get help readily available.

Problem - too young to cope

That is my take on it too.

I hear that Mel is young, attractive talented, and takes too many drugs.

Well, she takes too many drugs

Another one of your fantasies.
U imagine me differently more often than some people brush their teeth.
Maybe I should just give u the damn photo that u want so much.;)

The last time that happened we ended up with Live Aid.
