Middle-aged male celebrities and vanity - why?

These so called Celebes are getting more detached from normality. Somebody has obviously advised him to do that. Could it be pressure from tbh companies? Ageism?

There’s a big problem with it all for me. Once you change a perceived imperfection, you won’t be happy with one change (as it normally doesn’t turn out how it’s pictured in your head). This is why people make mutiple changes and end up looking ridiculous

Ridiculous.
Can't stand the man. Just look where vanity can get you? Teeth looking so artificial they no longer resemble teeth. Made a fortune belittling people on his shows. All in the name of 'Entertainment'. Modern bear baiting more like. Exploiting those who are clearly mentally unwell, just like Jeremy Kyle did and look how that ended. What goes around comes around.

Correct. Like the guy who is trying to look like Ken, a Barbie doll. They have ridiculously swollen lips and teeth like white piano keys. Do they not realise how fake and absurd it all looks? Ive nursed people whose lives have been blighted with OCD and they will never get that time back again.

Always seeking perfection that isn't there. Not appreciating the problem isn't their appearance its their low self esteem and worth. That is what needs addressing, not plastic surgery or making the home look like a show home scared of any dust or crumpled cushions being seen. Very sad, and magazines do little to challenge this dangerous, distorted myth of what someone should look like.

I agree with you, I think people should accept who they are as best they can. We were made to be individuals. I think John legend song that says ‘your perfect imperfections’

I do see the point where if people make the change to help the mental health, but in hindsight I think most people would probably wish they hadn’t started

Is this thread a little sexist?...middle aged women can/should? And ageist, lots of younger people make a right mess of their face also...life is so complicated .
Does look like he's been caught in a fire like.
