Flashback: It’s Not Easy Being A Rockstar The Sequel (Rockstar aged 6 months)
REALLY... It's not easy being a Rockstar... You are constantly on the lookout for the "Paps." You are the center of attention... The grueling schedule means you have to catch up on your reading in transit... And hire people to carry you around (note JD all excited)... Also, all those public appearances can leave you jaded while others bask in your celebrity. And you have to be careful - there are hidden cameras EVERYWHERE! Then those pesky "paps" catch you in the tub with company... And you read about it in the tabloids the next day! How unFAIR! When showbiz colleagues like Harrison Ford have big budget movies, you have to get out there and show your support... It's a vicious cycle - there are always things you can't yet afford and need to stay in showbiz for... Yet at other times you just have too much of a good thing. Of course, you also have your diva moments... And you keep yourself buff in a pimped-out personal gym. With personal trainer! Yet no matter how much you work out and diet there are STILL some foods you just can't have! And for all the unnecessary workout gear you sport, there are still no cute little girl babies to check out! On Mother's Day your staff do your shopping and you have to rely on their sometimes dubious tastes. Also, dogs think you can solve all their problems... ...people need you to rearrange their faces... Also, even when you're sleeping, you have to make a fashion statement... But then sometimes your stylist just gets it wrong... SO wrong... Things get so stressful sometimes your thumb just ain't enough.. Older women always want to kiss you... MEN want to kiss you... Even DOGS want to kiss you - it's just too much! Then there are the cheesy publicity shots... And public service messages... You have to have a fierce guard dog with you at all times to ward off unwanted attention... Then there are the strange new eating fads, just to keep up with the Joneses... Also, you just can't get good help these days... Speaking of which, WHERE is your personal trainer this morning!? Sometimes even your guard dog goofs off. In fact, you feel obliged to oversee everything your staff does... So at social functions you are sometimes exhauszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
But even after a rough night they don't let you sleep in...
So you have to snatch zzzs whenever you can... Because like Scarlett said, tomorrow's another day..
And Rock Stars have SO much more to do in this city!
About AileenI blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.
