Welcome to the Models Direct blog. Models Direct are one of the UK’s biggest modelling agencies and specialise in connecting models with clients and modelling jobs. This month we thought we should look at two celebrities that we love and learn about how fame caused problems in their lives, perhaps hoping to learn some lessons. The world finds talent, stardom and beauty irresistible and those who have these qualities are considered special and above the crowd. Celebs appear to have everything that anyone could ever want in life.
Whitney Houston , one of the most beautiful actresses and talented singers ever married retired star Bobby Brown in 1992 at the height of her career. Due to her drug problems, it might not have been the best move to get together with someone with issues of his own. Through their tumultuous marriage, Whitney’s drug abuse only became worse. They divorced in 2007 at a time when Houston was about to record a new album and her life seemed to be going well. She appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show two years later and gave an interview that was noted as being one of the most outspoken. Houston admitted to the world that her drug addiction got out of control after the thundering success of The Bodyguard in 1992. Her world tour in 2010 didn’t salvage her career, though. Her fans were disappointed at the performance and the quality of her voice. She also received numerous negative responses from critics. While she did go to rehab, she never overcame her habit. In 2012, under the influence of cocaine, marijuana and other drugs, she drowned in her bath. Despite this sad end, Whitney Houston is one of the world’s best-selling singers with more than 200 million records sold.
Britney Spears is one of those rare people who start out as a child star. Many models also start as children but Britney has also made the transformation to stardom as an adult. Britney started her career at the age of 11. At this time she was picked for The New Mickey Mouse Club with other later to be famous stars such as Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. After that show she focused on her solo career. After releasing her first single in 1998 and becoming a worldwide sensation, she somehow let her life unravel. In 2004 her reputation and name was ruined due to a strange two day marriage with Jason Alexander. She then had a scandalous love affair with a backup dancer. In that same year she married him and gave birth to their first son. However, their marriage didn’t last long and after the birth of their second son divorce proceedings began. Britney Spears was acknowledged to be mentally ill giving her ex-husband full custody over their children. She has since made a great recovery and we wish her continued success.
