Celebrity Suicides – Is Fame Not All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

I just don’t get it! Is the fame and spotlight not all it’s cracked up to be? You always hear people wishing they could switch places with their favorite celebrities. Yet lately I keep hearing stories of celebrities committing suicide or on the verge of it. What is it about the fame and glory that makes them suicidal? What could be so bad that one would think that taking their life would be a better choice?

I’m sure you all heard about the recent Russell Armstrong death by suicide. Now I’m hearing of my all time favorite boxer Oscar De La Hoya admitting to having suicidal thoughts. Wrestler Matt Hardy just this week released a YouTube video sounding as though he was about to take his life. Eminem, Elton John, Britney Spears, even Princess Diana are just a few of the celebrities that have attempted suicide at some point or another. Luckily they were unsuccessful, but there are so many who were.

What could be so horrible, that one would honestly think of suicide as an option? No one can control the things that happen in life, but we can always control how we choose to react to them and deal with them. Suicide should NEVER be a thought nor an option. We all make mistakes and go through hard times. However, by choosing life we have the opportunity to fix our wrong doings and to allow others to correct the wrongs they’ve done to us. Death is FINAL, it’s the end there is no fixing anything. All that is left is a memory and the devastation and heartache that is left with those who loved and cared for you. CHOOSE LIFE!

Cat Power Has Struggle With Alcohol Abuse In The Past

Cat Power, also known as Chan Marshall is singer and songwriter. She’s absolutely fascinating, but well known for her drinking problems in the past. From belligerent rants on stage, to walking off mid shows. She’s admitted in the past to have battled with alcohol abuse. If you’re into her music, well, it becomes more than obvious in songs such as “Moonshiner” & “Ice Water.”

I wasn’t able to find a picture of Cat Power shit faced. Maybe in some she is, but she’s just too pretty and maybe even “when putting the damage on” she still looks pretty. So I picked something else instead…
