What about Darth Plagius the wise?

You ever hear the tragedy of Darth plagues the wise? I thought not. It's not a story the jedi would tell you. Darth Plagius is a dark lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the force to influence the midichlorians to create life. He has such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cares about from dying. The dark side of the force is the path to many abilities some considered to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Sounds to me like most people who gets involved with hollywood and has success, suffers from some form of addiction of depression. Yet some people seem to go through it and manage their lifestyle and success. Without sounding like a total douchebag, who's fault is it that it happened, howcome some people can handle fame some can't, even with bad times you still your morals to fall back on if you have any, or is that the problem?

What about Eminem? His father abandoned the family when he was a newborn and he grew up with a crazy drug abusing mother in a predominantly black neighborhood where he would be constantly bullied, jumped, and knocked unconscious. He failed 9th grade three times, then dropped out. He was robbed when he already barely had anything. He was close to having to raise a daughter all by himself and homeless on the streets. He lost his best friend. Even after all that, despite his controversial music, he turned out to be a good person. He gave up drugs after a near-death experience so that he could be there for his daughters. Say what you want, but this man is someone we should all look up to. He has gone through things that most people cannot even imagine and still came through to be a passionate and caring man.

Michael fucking Jackson. What about him ? He was abused as a child, abused as an adult. Suffured from many illnesses and was even accused of being a pedo while all he did was trying to help dying children.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for celebrities whose tragedy is self-inflicted, like Whitney Houston. She had it all till she decided drugs were cool. And what about "Weird Al" Yankovic? Losing both his parents at the same time due to an accident.

what about keanu reeves and freddie murcury and OPRAH WINFREY they've been through some real rough times. one of keanu's really good friends died of a drug over dose and his wife died in a car crash. freddie died of aids and was at the prime of his music carreer as well. and oprah had been through a lot when she was a teenager with depression and sexual abuse. c'mon, how could you not put oprah on the list. she went through all of that AND helped people who'd been through the same things too? now, that's a queen.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST you heartless Motherfuckers!!! Freddie Mercury!!! Don't get me wrong, your channel is great, but this is bullshit! Freddie: Had to leave his own country at a young age, Throughout most of his career was bombarded by the press asking questions, DIED of brochopneumonia as a complication of aids and was tested HIV positive, RECIEVED HEARTLESS COMMENTS saying that he DESERVED TO DIE so extreme to the point where Brian May and Roger Taylor had to defend A DEAD MAN on TV!!!

If your fall from grace is due to alcohol/drug abuse, that's not tragic. That's choice. There's nothing tragic about weak-minded people fucking their lives up. Keanu Reeve's story is tragic. Lindsay Lohan's isn't.
