Unfortunately extreme success can sometimes have the extremely bad side effect of the successful person becoming an absolute jerk. As they say, power corrupts. Not if handled properly it doesn't but as the fictional Ben Parker put it, "With great power comes great responsibility." Unfortunately lots of people don't live up to that responsibility, all too often when people become famous, if they become famous entertainers or whatever, they think they can do whatever they want, they think they're better than everybody else, and they become complete ego driven jerks!

Now this certainly doesn't happen with all famous people but unfortunately it seems more commonplace now. There used to be some famous people who were also really nice people in real life. For instance, the late John Candy who was best known for the various roles he played in comedy movies. Unfortunately I never got to meet John Candy but from what I heard from people who had met him, he was a really nice and kind fellow. He was not somebody who let his fame get to his head and he did not think he was better than everybody else or that he should get special treatment. Many people were really sad when he died in 1994 including myself.

John Candy is a good role model of how famous people should be in real life. Now days we've got people such as Ariana Grande who really can be complete jerks, from what I heard Ariana can be downright nasty!

I will say this much, Ariana Grande is not worthy to shine John Candy's shoes!

Darn, I probably shouldn't use their names in the same sentence, I feel like Im disrespecting John Candy's memory, but I really wanted to say that.

Ariana was handing out $100 bills to drag queens at a club in San Antonio a few nights ago.

Did John Candy ever do that?

I don't know if John Candy ever did but there is no indication that John Candy enjoyed entertainment from drag queens.
