Lately I can not get Jas Waters off of my mind. This beautiful accomplished woman who was in the entertainment/media/film industry who is no longer here. It is so important to check on your loved ones especially these days. In the covid-19 era we have no idea what's on our loved ones minds. We all see so much craziness all around us it can be stressful and take a toll on our mental health. As we know it does not matter how rich or famous you are, it doesn't matter how beautiful or successful you are. You can have everything and still feel as if something in your life is missing. A lot of suicidal people never leave a note or any warning. We have to be over cautious of our self and those around us. These are extremely sensitive times. I am writing this letter in honor of Jas Water as a black woman, journalist, writer and suicide prevention advocate.
Sitting supine on my mother’s sofa, I relax in my usual way by listening to some of my favorite podcasts on my newly-bought IPad Air.
Ask many authors and they will tell you that one of the greatest fulfillment of their literary labors is having one of their books turned into a motion picture. Having that movie be the recipient of such critical acclaim that it receives four Academy Award nominations, including Best Adapted Screenplay, and earn for its star his first and only Oscar for Best Actor, well that’s like the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae.
Oh Sweet Caroline! A star known and loved to many but also hated by many, specifically the british media. A woman everyone knew, if you watched Love Island or didn't, Caroline was known. A woman who 'lit up the room' said by many. She was thrown from CBBC to the ‘real world’, where she couldn’t complain when the going got tough.
Following todays tragic death of British celebrity Caroline Flack I want to update a piece I wrote elsewhere. In my other piece I talked about celebrity suicides where there was no obvious reason behind it, think Kurt Kobain or Chester Bennington. both massively successful people with millions of fans, a lot of money and a seemingly perfect life. Think more recently of Keith Flint of Prodigy, in the middle of a successful tour and again with millions of fans. In each case there was a reason they took their decision, theories for all but only 3 people know why.
Even towards the end she was mocked.
"Freedom is found from within."
When somebody grows in fame or relevancy in a certain field, it's not really a secret that a clean image would be a good tool for keeping a fan base or a career. There are some paths they have to avoid going down, or there are some skeletons in their closets that they would rather not bring up. Out of all the skeletons in their closets, why is it that struggles with mental health has to be one of them? In this case, I don't mean in the "it makes me uncomfortable for to discuss it," but in a "nobody believes me when I'm being honest, so I have to hide it" sort of way that toxic people tend to cause.
Celebrities are people too—and their struggles often take place far from the cameras. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top ten celebs you had no idea battled addiction.
Twenty One Pilots, stylized as TØP, is a band from Columbus, Ohio, that is well known for their alternative music style. The music group, formed by members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, has a vast cult following of teenagers who call themselves The Skeleton Clique. Many young adults enjoy this music because they relate to the lyrics, which contain insightful and unexpurgated descriptions of common mental illnesses, such as anxiety and depression. Teens benefit from sharing their difficulties with other people, and knowing that they are not alone in feeling dispirited. Subsequently, since many TØP fanatics identify with each other via the music and the struggles they are experiencing, they form a connected and compatible crowd at concerts who help to console one another. Outsiders often see Twenty One Pilots fans as angsty, emotional kids, but in reality they are a supportive, hopeful, and united group who band together at the Tour de Columbus 2017 tour.
