Are These Superstars are Burning Out?
Justin Bieber is going crazy and pop star Rihanna says she is going to take a break from music! What is going on in the pop universe?!
Justin has found himself in the media quite often as of late, from his back and forth love with Selena Gomez, to his inappropriate fan photo, to his paparazzi conflict and now to his mental melt down. After a long week in London, Biebs was greeted with boos for being two hours late to a performance. He then canceled his concert in Portugal claiming to be overloaded with shows and stress. The 19-year-old, Canadian superstar went from zero to sixty starting at the ripe age of 14 and from the looks of it, hasn’t slowed down one bit. Although he has made a few enemies recently, maybe we should give Biebs a break. After all, it must be tough growing up famous with all the money a boy could ever ask for.
Justin is not the only one feeling a little run down these days. Rihanna also canceled a show in Boston this weekend. The pop star blamed laryngitis and over-working her vocal chords for the cancellation. She said she couldn’t perform, “doctor’s orders.”
Rihanna is fast becoming an entertainment industry veteran. She began her career at the age of 16 and hasn’t stopped since. She recently launched her new clothing line River Island; but let’s not forget her sold out tours and release of 7 albums in 7 years!
Is it time for a break? Huffintonpost.com quoted sources saying that Rihanna will be taking a break soon enough. “She’s been in this go-mode for a while,” Ryan Seacrest said on his morning radio show this week, according to NME. “Seven hit records in seven years. Sold-out tours, but sources say after this tour wraps, she plans to take up to a year off to unwind.”
We expect the most of our favorite stars and sometimes forget that they are simply human. Maybe it is time we ease up and show some sympathy… Or we can continue to gossip and criticize their every move. Yeah, I like that better.
