Being a celebrity with acne...

Recommended Posts

How much more difficult do you think it woud be to be an entertainer with acne. I've always wanted to be a professional musician and I have a really good voice, but i tend to shy away from performance opportunities or meeting people that could help me out. Every one tells me I have the look, I'm working hard on my body, practicing and writing more. But I still have occasional breakouts and when it comes down to it I wonder if I will have the confidence to do what takes to get there.

I know there are people that that have/had acne like Britney, Alicia Keys, or Cameron Diaz. I can't think of any guys other than Frankie Munoz and he's still a teen. In an industry where like looks are so important I just wonder how much of a disadvantage I'm at. I feel like just giving up, but it's really the only thing I want to do with my life.

alica key's skin is hardly bad at all.....

its hardly acne

If you have one pimple on your face that is acne. I have 3 small bumps on my face right now and it makes me very self-conscious. You might think thats nothing, but when most people are completely clear it's a problem for me. I think Imight have a mild form of body dismorphia though.

if your skin isn't NEARLY as bad as Frankie's then why would it stop you from doing anything?

Can someone show me a picture of what is considered to a bad case of acne then?

He was famous before he broke out. Who knows if he would get a shot now?

frankie is still making films and tv programmes, and there is nothing wrong with your face in any way shape or form, your a good looking dude and you shouldn't have any foreseeable problems in getting into the music industry, unless you're not very talented.

Severe acne covers all your face, google it

I know what severe acne is, but what amount of acne is enough be reasonably worried about? Maybe I need to change the way I think.

I think both Alicia and Frankie have mild acne....however, it's probably troublesome for both, celebrity or no celebrity. It looks like their acne could flare up to moderate if they don't work on it...... :(

Being an entertainer with acne, man- I would die >:( . All those close-ups, cameras flashing, television appearences, magazine covers....HDTV.....god, you can see every pore on your face. Acne- mild, moderate, or severe...you'll be forced to perform in front of people and meet and greet and smile and sign autographs and you know your skin looks like crap....hell, you still gotta face the world! Your spotted face will be all over STAR mag. and National Enquirer....no sir!! :naughty:

At least, being an everyday human/no fame, I can deal with my acne by my lonesome...if I wanna hide, I'll hide and not be bothered and no one really cares about my face except me. ;)

I would not want my bad complexion all over the internet! :shock:

The enlarged picture of Alicia is just wrong! :ohno: My skin isn't that bad, but my pix enlarged 100x.....naw, wouldn't want to see that....my complexion is a little on the rough side, years of battling acne I guess. Alicia's acne is probably a little worst....take off the layers of expensive foundation, applied by a make-up artist who's making at least 80k a year....but guess what, she makes the big bucks...she'll find a solution :)

Honestly, it just sounds like you're apprehensive about your chances and looking for reasons why you might not succeed that are outside of your control. If that picture is any indication of what you look like on a day to day basis, you look perfectly fine. There is nothing there to keep you from having your face plastered on CD covers and billboards everywhere.

Then again, you might have some kind of body dysmorphia, like you said earlier. But hell, if Seal could make it in the music industry, great skin is obviously not much of a prerequisite anyway.

He wouldn't have been hot when he had his acne tho.

Anyway, how bad acne has to be to affect your life is down to the individual in many ways but 3 spots sounds like a fuss about nothing. I have 4-5 inflamed spots on my very good days, 15-20 on bad days, not to mention the red marks but i still get by okay.

OMG do you know how patronising you sound. Adam has been here for years thats why he has a lot of posts and for you to say that he should quit for sometime and get a real life when you don't even know him is just rude. Don't comment on other peoples lives and how severe their acne/scars are when you have no clue. You cannot begin to understand how acne affects people and if you did you wouldn't waste your time saying crap like this. And by the way jus because people post on here a lot it doesn't mean that they don't have a life, god I spend a lot of time on here and believe me I have a what you call "real" life.

:shifty: Anyway getting back to the title of the topic.... I do think it must really suck for celebrities with acne (not that it dosen't suck for everybody!) because the amount of public scrunity they are under. I mean in magazine you see 'circle of shame' features where if a celebrity has one spot its pointed out and scrunitinised. It must be hard for the having to deal with that, let alone if they really do have acne like Alicia Keys or that Frankie boy :)
