Now i know this si no news to us again ,but i have a problem with understanding why most people who are stars always end up being on the wrong side of the law,ok to mention a few,michael jackson was on the verge of loosing his nevada ranch why?because of unpaid debts,james brown died and left almost notheing,why again?tax related amtteres and debtss,now passenger 57 star wesley snipes is convicted of not paying his taxes hence he has to be jailed inspite of the money he has made,it seems these guys think they can get away with just about anything or why cant they just stay within the law?Is it also a tradition or a law that once you attain stardom you must have a brush with the law?

I simply think celebrities are as human as we are and while we can get away with petty issues they are on the spot all the time. Also,they do think they deserve a slack or are able to buy one

I think some stars probably feel they can get away with things, that they're sometimes above the law. I also think some of them just don't aren't good with money and don't know how to handle large amounts of it and are surrounded by others who take advantage of that. There are a lot of regular people out there with problems whether it's mental problems, financial, relationships... whatever but when you're a star EVERYONE knows about it.

Yes i agree with you plus the fact that most of them dont know how to live a low keyed life even when they are aware that they are on the spotlight at every moment

Rather than celebrities being involved in criminal activity of varying degrees to be fashionable I feel it is more a case that because they are famous it creates big headlines. If most of these crimes were commited by the average Joe on the street, few people, if any would be interested as it would not be newsworthy.

i am not so sure about this ,you only need to read the newspapers very well to know that when anyone commits any offense it becomes news unless you are able to conceal it,in which case God help you that the press boys are not around,i think they actually like such publicities.its free advert for them isnt it,?

Who knows? I think alot of them think they are all high and mighty and they have enough money to bail themselves out of any law jams that they get themselves into. I think that they think they are higher than most authorities and they will push themselves to the limit to see what they can get by with.

well,maybe you are right and it seems getting into various mischiefs have become more like a sport to them,some of them seems to compete on who can be the nastiest and i guess sometiems the more they earn the more they get bored so they need a brush with the law to loosen up!hahahahaah!not funny though but what can i say again?
