While surfing the Internet I came across a blog on this topic and felt compelled to write about it.
Watch any season of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model and you’ll hear her talk about how being pretty is not enough to model.
While it does help, if you can’t come to life in front of the camera you might as well think about another career. There have been plenty of models on ANTM who I thought should have won because they were prettier than the actual winner. The bottom line is that modeling is a business and it is about selling products and services.
Pretty Girl Syndrome is defined as gorgeous women who are crazy. Supposedly this is a result of excessive pampering, unnecessary gift giving and extreme complimenting received from men. Other characteristics that manifest themselves are the laziness, possessiveness, and irrational behaviors.
While I’m not sure if there is any truth to this it does make you wonder why so many attractive drop dead gorgeous women are single while their average looking friends aren’t. One possible celebrity who falls or fell into this so-called category at one time is Halle Berry. She is perhaps one of the most beautiful women in the world. She’s been featured on People Magazines Most Beautiful List many times. While I don’t know her personally, the buzz in Hollywood has always been that she is crazy.
If you grew up hearing you’re cute all the time, which lead to you are beautiful over time I can see that perhaps affecting ones thinking.
In terms of women being called CRAZY, I don’t necessary agree with that. I do think there are crazy people in the world, but I think it is wrong to stereotype one group.
