Every day, we look up to celebrities for various updates, the way they maintain their bodies, the way they dress up and their other lifestyle choices. When you are looking up to someone at a whole different level, tragic things are highly likely. Music videos show popular celebrities such as Lady Gaga, or Lindsay Lohan, or Nicole Richie in their delicate avatars, where their bones are sticking out. But, is it good enough to inspire you?

Unhealthy Lifestyle of Celebrities

Lady Gaga is the best example of promoting unhealthy lifestyle. Her obsession with her weight is reflected in the music video releases. She has been accused of starving to fit into her costumes. The Grammy winning music artist has starved herself to make her obsession a reality.

Kylie Minogue, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie are among others. Celebrities have a certain influence on our lifestyle. They become a part of our lives because we keep getting their twitter updates, videos that run all day on various channels and somewhat try to be like them. But, incidences of constant fights, drug abuse, alcohol abuse and random hook-ups send across negative message to the masses. Lindsay Lohan has the history of frequenting the rehab time and again. Does that serve you any good?
