How does popularity break the psyche of celebrities?

Pass the test of fame and money, preserving peace and harmony in the soul: for many stars, this task has become unbearable, and in some cases, popularity has even turned into serious mental problems.

More than 10 years ago, due to regular overwork and strong friendship with alcohol, the singer lost her legal capacity and was transferred to her guardians. Since then, there is practically no news from the actress - the girl only shares strange videos with dances with the fans, without commenting on her condition.
The situation with the once-popular and highest-paid Charlie Sheen also suggests that fame breaks life. Due to uncontrollable behavior and outbursts of aggression provoked by drugs and alcohol, the actor was kicked out of the filming of the series “Two and a Half Men”, replacing him with Ashton Kutcher.
