Singer Sheila Escovedo spoke about her fame, and how quickly it happens and goes to your head. She says she “felt lost”, and she didn’t like what she had become. She also became very “demanding”: ‘I want it now! I’m not waiting! I’m paying you, so do it – bla, bla, bla.’ Sheila wasn’t prepared for the dark side of fame. She remembers watching her niece, Nicole Richie, go through the same thing she was experiencing. Take a look below:
Sheila Escovedo watched her niece, Simple Life star Nicole Richie, fall down the celebrity slope, too. Richie is the daughter of Sheila E’s brother, Peter Michael Escovedo, who played in Lionel Richie’s band. “Nicole is so much like my mom. They are like twins. They do crazy things,” Sheila E says. She said the family were shocked when Nicole admitted to, and overcame, drug addiction in 2004. “We didn’t have any idea. If we did, we would’ve done something.”
I guess fame isn’t as glamorous and fun as we thought it was. Would you like to be famous even though there is a high risk of falling into the wrong crowd? Let me know in the comments.
