Our expectations from our Celebs

So I was responding to something on the Religious tolerance thread and it suddenly struck me - exactly what are our expectations from our celebs? Do we expect them to be larger than life or just plain ordinary folks? Do we expect an unrealistically high standard of behavior or is our expectation threshold reallly low?

Think about it - our expectations are such a paradox. On the one hand we mock Ashka for going crazy with her hair and we ridicule Urvahi, and Delnaaz for their tons of makeup. At the same time we mock Sayantani and Sampat for not taking pains about their appearance.

One small sentence from Siddhu and we are ready to put him up on a pedestal, or treat Rajev as the next thing to a Devdas yet aren't they saying and doing the same things that we do in our everyday lives? So why idolize them?

Or is it that we need a reason to see beautiful people as either way too beautiful or ugly in order to contrast it with our own image of our daily life - Noblesse Oblige?

The only thing I expect is entertainment. Surely that's not much to ask. But tell that to Salman and Siddhu.AngryEdited by Dexterkilaila - 2012-10-26T08:39:13Z

With fame comes a lot of responsibilities for the celebs... They are sort of role models for the people tht idolize and look up to them. This means that even their smallest of mistakes are left under scrutiny for the public in general. If we feel that the celebrity is not presenting themselves like how they ought to then they are sending a wrong message to the audience that such behaviour is appropriate and this does not sit well with most of the public... It's the price to pay for being a celebrity sadly...

Surely we expect entertainment and that's the least of our expectations. But think of this - Siddhu utters a shlok and we treat his as a model of religious tolerance. Really how small must've been our initial expectation that he would not know this and that's why we are impressed.

I agree but on the other hand I feel that at times our expectations are so small that a celeb says "excuse me" after sneezing and we go into raptures about what a model of etiquette and grace he is.

And that is one of my points - on one hand we are ready to forgive the gravest of crimes, on the other we sit and criticize and microscopically analyze each and every gesture, movement and utterance of a person put into a pressure cooker like situation.

Not that I'm pleading for any of the inmates of the BB house, they chose to sit int he fish bowl and are being paid heftily for exposing their lives and personalities to the public.

I guess we all have our pet peeves and even the littlest things can fall under that category...
Or it could be that logic that when we dislike someone very little thing they do annoys us and when we like someone even the biggest mistakes are forgivable?

They should consider well before accepting the show. If their ideas or morals are against the rules they should not accept it.

My only expectation from them --is not to PAKAO us - and act real [email protected] =  /  Be it 'larger than life' or 'simple ordinary' ----I accept them in any personality [email protected]

As far as entertainment goes ---that should be up to BIGG BOSS --- he is smart enough to choose right combination of housemates and interesting tasks and moves @=

For religious TOLERANCE --well --the PROBLEM with virtual forums is that --- we don't know how  QUALIFIED  each MEMBER is to participate in certain discussions @ === Some fools also debate on serious issues here [email protected] Many times member have no clue about the topic --but they keep ranting something just to justify their stand @  =   LIKE --there would be members who might be hypnotized by Sidhu paaji's sherro-shayari and vocab ---so him chanting those mantras would be icing on the cake ----/ @ ==
