Our generation is obsessed with celebrity culture. So much so that these days you can be famous simply for being famous. It’s a pretty glamorous world, so it’s not surprising that fame is something almost everyone wants. Becoming famous might be hard, but staying famous is even harder, especially in a cutthroat business such as Hollywood.
Some celebrities are timeless. They will be forever famous and remembered for their work no matter where their careers take them.
Some celebrities, on the other hand, sift down to the bottom of the pile and are easily forgotten. As irrelevant as these stars become they don’t always get the memo that they’re not exactly famous anymore.
We don’t really blame them – fame and fortune would be a difficult thing to give up. But if there is one thing the world loves watching more than the rise of a superstar, it’s the downfall, and we’re totally on the same page.
What exactly causes a celebrity to lose their fame? In today’s world, it doesn’t take much. Considering you can become a global superstar just for knowing someone famous, it only proves fame can easily come crashing down for something just as simple.
Cheating scandals. Diva behaviour. Lack of talent. Public meltdowns. These are just a few examples of some of the instances where once world-known celebrities sealed their fate to be forever forgotten.
There’s no business like show business and for these celebrities there’s definitely no coming back.
Read below and let us know what you think of these 15 Celebrities who haven’t realized they aren’t famous anymore!
1. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan, unarguably once a mega household name as an actress, model, and music superstar, has been falling pretty far off the celebrity radar. Most press about her has been less than flattering. Whether the tabloids are dishing about her fluctuating jail time, otherworldly accents, or even her recreational drug habits, no one really seems to be focusing on any career moves… possibly because there aren’t any to focus on. Instead, the media has a field day documenting her journey to achieving train wreck status. Just because the media’s only talking about her less than favorable moments, doesn’t mean she’s going to acknowledge her dwindling celebrity status. She even recently formally invited celebrities like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and even Beyoncé to join her in Mykonos, Greece, for her last-minute birthday bash. Of course, by formal we mean she used social media to “@” them on Twitter. We’re sure that’s how all A-List celebrities are sending their invites, too.
