Why fame could be the worst thing to ever happen to you

It seems like everyone is looking for their shot at fame, but living a life under the spotlight may not be worth all the glory. Celebrities are constantly scrutinized for the smallest superficial offenses. Too fat. Too skinny. What are they wearing? Even worse, it's easy to get addicted to all of the attention. Glenn offered his perspective on the curse of fame on today's radio show.

"Fame is one of the worst things you can imagine. It really is. Because you get used to it. And you get comfortable with it. And the minute you start to see it slip, you're like, wait, I've got to do that or I've got to do this," Glenn said "If you are a celebrity, I just don't think that you slide into obscurity gently if you're a real uber celebrity without really having a handle on yourself."

"I say this because of the FOX days. Obviously you're on FOX, that's the biggest stage in the world. You come off of that stage and it screws you up. It really does. It really messes with your head. And it's difficult. And unless you know who you are, you're not going to make it."

You see many celebrities today having trouble making transitions in their career as they seek to redefine their image and maintain success. Glenn noted that Miley Cyrus is the perfect example of someone doing whatever it takes to stay in the spotlight.

"Imagine being Miley Cyrus. She knows, okay, so I'm leaving this and now I'm going to go do music. That's why they all go to sex trash, because they know they can milk that. And they just -- they just want it to continue. Just don't stop. Don't stop. Love me, love me, love me, love me. It's weird," he said.

When Glenn first started doing television at CNN, he experienced a lot of the scrutiny and superficiality of the media business. While in line at the salad bar, one of the company vice presidents actually came up to him at the salad bar and saw he had put blue cheese on his plate. The executive actually said to him "I hope that's light blue cheese".

"I looked at him and I said, I feel sorry for the women who work here. Don't ever say that to me again. He was dead serious," Glenn said.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
