Money Changes Everything!

Some people say that money changes everything (yes, these also are the words to a Cyndi Lauper song).  But I disagree.  Money only magnifies what’s already there so you can see them more clearly.  Nothing is changed.  I’m speaking about the number of notables, celebrities who lead a troubled, sordid life. This stems from the recent report of Chris Brown’s jail sentence. A judge in Los Angeles sentenced him to a month in jail on a probation violation.   His case in Washington, DC is scheduled for April 23rd.

People are always asking if he’ll ever learn his lesson (like they ask about other celebrities before him). They forget that celebrity or not, these folk are still human, regular people aside from their celebrity status.  Arguably, they also say these folks ought to be able to overcome their adversities (or perhaps avoid them altogether) because of their access to fame and money that the average person lacks.  But really, it’s hard for a leopard to change its spots, even with wealth on their side. 

I think of all the people I know personally who face troubles in life. Everyday choices, friendships and associations with others, and our own internal world’s view all impact where we end up in life.  Money doesn’t change that.  If we happen to be a person that is self-centered who makes illogical and destructive choices, giving us money will only make us a person that is self-centered who makes illogical, destructive choices that also has money. The very core of our being is the same deep inside. 

I wish there were an easy fix.  Celebrities have had these kinds of troubles going back decades.  Why is it this way? Because it is their human side that drives them. They all are just like you and I.

  1. Very true, but I often wonder what they would be like without having an abundance amount of money. Perhaps, money gives them a sense of entitlement or more…I think the money, the industry opens them up to a lot of evil.
