We are all tempted to lie at one point if it makes us look good to others and what better way to do that than on social media? This is the place in which we inflate our lives in order to boost our own egos. It’s an easy way to impress upon other people about who you are on in the inside but it’s also a place to deceive people about who you are on the outside as well. Well, I don’t believe that it’s any different with celebrities except for the fact that they are absolutely prompted to have lavish lives that they just can’t help to brag about to us commoners through social media. But do they really? The fact is, even celebs are just normal people who are trying to look extraordinary on these pages.
So, when we catch one of them in a lie, it is hilarious! Mostly because we can’t imagine why they would have to lie in the first place but then you realize that their whole life is like living a lie because they are presenting to the public the person that they want us to know and like. Those who don’t are probably not very popular and so many of these celebs know how to play the game. I mean, with some of them, what else do they have to offer?
The fun part about it all is when the public is wise to the fact that many of these top of the line celebrities are nothing more than a buncha fakes and phonies which is why we shouldn’t be idolizing them in the first place but for whatever reason, we just can’t help ourselves. Sometimes, we just enjoy watching the drama that is their life unfold before our eyes. This is just element of it all:
This guy posting an Instagram photo of a private jet and then he wrote this, “Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip-Hop. Lets gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER. May 25th on @wetv.” So, it looks pretty convincing huh? I mean, why would he lie and post this epic photo of him about to board a private jet? We assume that this is how someone like this would get around and yet, he was found to be lying big time! There was no private jet! Well, there was a plane and this is the best part of the whole thing. This is when you learn the truth about these people and the lifestyles that they purport to maintain.
Instead, he was on this commercial flight:

Yep! While he was posting about his big-time success, he was flying just like every other dude is flying in a commercial airplane. This probably kills him inside to know that he was just caught in an epic lie because honestly it just makes him look so bad! We can’t even imagine doing a lie that is this outrageous but it does go to show that he is not who he says that he is. Not that he doesn’t deserve his fame but the fact that he is lying about his lifestyle begs us to question how many other lies he is willing to tell the public so that they believe in his image that he’s desperately clinging to.
