You ever stop to wonder what happens
to these Wolves/Foxes/Hybrids/and Vixens once they fall off?
You know, the ones who are steadily trying to be online stars.
The ones who think they can rap good because they look good.
The ones who think because they got over 10,000 followers,
that they made it in life.
Is everyone trying to be a star?
Attention whores live a tricky life.
They always have to be on,
but they also have to make sure their secrets do not get out there.
They have to generate as much buzz doing random shit,
that we secretly want to know more about this person.
They have to make sure they stay on top of the other attention whores.
It seems tiring, to be honest.
Then, as luck would have it, someone puts all their shit out there are ruin the fantasy.
They either turn out to be broke, gay, losers, drug addicts, whores, and even crazy.
When the lights dim and the pictures don’t get the same hits anymore,
what happens next?
Do they go off to get a job?
Do they do whatever it takes to make money?
Or, do they finally settle down and live off someone else (hence the “whore”)?
I always wondered what happens to an attention whore once they stop getting attention?
Is their sole purpose in life just to command as much attention as they can before their time runs out?
Or, do they end up living a pretty decent life with tons of memories to tell stories with?
Back in the day,
before Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace became the new “Hollywood”…
you had to have actual talent to be a celebrity.
This is how the term “1 hit wonders” came about.
They only were worth that one poppin’ record or couple of movies.
They vanished into the sunset and we moved onto someone else that has to prove themselves.
Nowadays, we just give ANYONE shine – and these motherfuckers ain’t even worth the spotlight.
So I had to ask, what happens to these people?
Do we care once they fall off?
Are we just using them as eye candy and mindless entertainment?
