Fame is a funny thing. It distorts your view of the world, but it also distorts the world itself. Famous people smell fresh paint wherever they go, don’t have to stand in lines for anything and hear the word “no” vastly less frequently than the rest of us unwashed pieces of shit.

Living in this bubble of agreement has to be quite nice, so when something comes along that either penetrates the bubble by presenting them with an actual real problem, or somehow reminds them of the horrors and ordinariness that exist outside their rarefied circle, it’s horrifying.

So you can see why they all go bonkers, but also become paranoid that anyone outside their closest circle will either want to bleed them dry or just, you know, seem kinda depressing. The answer: the celebrity entourage. You know, like in that famous show, 30 Rock.

A lot of famous people are surrounded constantly by a coterie of Grizzes and Dot Coms, laughing at all their jokes and agreeing with all their ideas. Some, like Adam Sandler, have turned it into an incredibly positive thing — his production empire is pretty much built on a couple of really strong friendships he made in college, and he has somehow created a life where he and his BFFs play basketball all around the world while getting paid — while with others it seems a lot more fragile and precarious, miniature payrolls of sycophants.

Entourages are paid, of course, for the services they provide, even when those services are pretty much “moral support” or “being someone familiar to sit next to backstage.”

Diva Drink-Destresser

A lot of jobs are beneath Mariah Carey. You couldn’t imagine her plunging a toilet, for instance. But Carey believes the simple act of drinking is a waste of her talents, reportedly employing an assistant to hold her drink and place the straw in her mouth, so all Carey has to do is inhale.
