It hasn’t been the best year for John Travolta to be famous. We reckon that’s what he’s thinking when he says “it’s the worst time to be famous” and that celebrities need privacy laws too.
The recent topless Kate Middleton media fiasco got a lot of celebrities worried their privacy isn’t exactly privacy. In fact, hadn’t it been for a different country than France, and yes, we’re thinking of U.S., things would have had another end. John Travolta is among the celebrities that sparked the most controversy this year. He told BBC celebrities need privacy laws, because this is the worst time to be famous.
It’s like that guy always feeling sorry for celebrities. So, would someone please think of the celebrities! Obviously privacy is anybody’s right, but when everything you do means selling your image and keeping current through magazines eating ice cream and going for shoes, it’s hard to ask for privacy laws to defend celebrities.
Take John Travolta for instance. He made the headlines over the past few months in all sort of reports he had gay relationships and that he had in fact sexually abused some people. Now, since the promotional responsibilities for his new movie are asking for it, John Travolta comes to the media saying it’s not the right time to be famous.
In an interview for BBC about “Savages”, John Travolta’s first acting gig since 2010, the star took the opportunity to discuss the topless Kate Middleton scandal. “There is a right to privacy whether you’re famous or not famous, and I feel that anyone being invaded at that level is unfortunate and there should be a law, no one would like that” John Travolta said.
Experts and even Donald Trump said it much better: the whole Kate Middleton topless photos fiasco was the Duchess’ own fault. “When Kate Middleton married Prince William she abandoned any chance at privacy. I am sure she received media and etiquette training and has received nothing but rare reviews since the fairytale wedding” says Ronn Torossian, 4WPR CEO.
“Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!” reacted Donald Trump on Twitter about the topless scandal Kate Middleton found herself involved.
