5 Celebrities Who Ignore Negative Criticism
Ignoring what people have to say about them, these 5 stars all say they’re happy to block out their critics. Believing that they can’t live their life listening to outsiders who might criticize their work, their fashion sense or their actions, these wise stars choose to simply ignore any negative words that come their way and say that it doesn’t stop them from being themselves. Having a healthy attitude and not obsessing over what people think about them, these celebrities are all about pleasing themselves first and won’t bow down to the media or anyone else who has voiced negative thoughts or concerns about them.
Cheryl says she doesn’t care if people laugh at her fashion choices: “I couldn’t care less what anyone says about the way I look. I’m not being funny, but everybody else started wearing orange and purple. It’s a fact. I love those trousers. I don’t give a s**t if everybody else didn’t like them. If anyone believes that [they had anything to do with her sacking from ‘X Factor’], then they’re even sillier than the person that wrote that.”
Speaking on ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’, Jim commented that he just ignored any negative reactions: “I don’t really care about the reaction, if there’s a negative reaction. I care about doing a story about amazing, fascinating people. It’s a true story about love, and someone’s relentlessness to find it and keep it.”
Kristen won’t change a thing about her own personality no matter what people say: “It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated, but honestly, I don’t care ’cause it doesn’t keep me from doing my s-t.”
Taylor doesn’t obsess over it because she knows it would be bad for her: “You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things, either way you’re obsessed with yourself and I’m not – you can become unhinged so easily. Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. So I distance myself, because I feel everything. The little I am exposed to hurts my feelings. The only things I can really control are my songs and my behaviour. The rest? If I focused on it that would lead to insanity.”
Lana Del Rey
Lana knows that she is open to criticism and finds it scary that people judge her without knowing her but she won’t let it put her off: ‘What’s scary is when you have your focus on being a writer for 10 years, and after that people decide they don’t like you – that’s off-putting, because when you’ve put all your work into crafting words and melodies, and then people start just thinking about you and judging you as a person that’s a little off-putting. But the rest of it isn’t scary, it’s just sort of different.”
