There's no doubting that being in the national spotlight is stressful, no matter if you're an A-list politician or a D-list MTVlebrity. It seems like one of Teen Mom 2's stars is really beginning to feel the intense pressure of all that comes with fame. That person? Jenelle Evans' former fiance Gary Head. Head confessed to his Twitter followers over the weekend that he has "so much stress" that he doesn't know how to handle it. Apparently, Gary is getting "destroyed mentally."
Well I mean, of course he is. The kid's been completely torn apart by a zillion different people on Twitter, he was robbed at a WalMart last year, and he's constantly worrying about what people he doesn't even know are thinking about him.
So the question comes up: Is it all worth it?
I guess it depends what these teens want in life and what they need. For some of these Teen Mom stars, they depend on the income from MTV to support their families, they're looking for the certain level of fame that comes with a gig like this in order to launch into other careers. For others, it just seems like a cool thing to do -- so they sign up.
Here's the thing: Gary didn't ask for this kind of fame, he got it because he was in love (or so we believe anyway) with Jenelle while she was filming this show. He became known by association. Now, as much as he may want to, he may never be able to completely hide from the public ever again. I mean, sure, it's not like people recognize this guy walking down the street like he's Leonardo DiCaprio or anything. But ... someone somewhere may always know his face.
I don't know about you, but that kind of recognition may make me reconsider ever doing something like this in the first place.
Do you think the stars of Teen Mom deserve all this attention?
