There are so many reasons why celebrities are bad role models that it seems puzzling that anyone should look up to them.

Of course, some are genuinely positive role models who achieve something worthwhile.

Yet it seems to be expecting a lot of people who are just paid to perform.

Here are some of the reasons why celebrities are bad role models โ€ฆ

1. Trying to Shock

One of the reasons why celebrities are bad role models is that they often set out to shock.

It's pretty obvious that Miley Cyrus knows exactly what she's doing with all her onstage antics.

But when there's no real message behind such shock tactics, it's hardly something worth emulating.

Yet some fans will watch them and think that it's cool - and want to be like their idols.

2. We Don't Really Know Them

There's something more than a little strange about the way that we think we know celebrities.2

Yet all we really know about them is what their PR team allow us to see.

We have no idea what they're really like as a person.

Are they anything like their image implies?

Or do we project our own perspective of what we want them to be like?

3. Young Fans

Many celebs have some very young fans, and they know that very well.

But that doesn't stop them from behaving in a way that's not suitable for their younger fans to see.

Although they're not obliged to act like saints, they do bear some responsibility for the image they project when they know they have young fans.

4. Only Human

To be fair to celebrities, they are held up to scrutiny and often expected to be infallible - which they are not.2

How many of us could never put a foot wrong if we were in the public eye?2

Celebs are only human, just as we are, and it's unfair to expect them to be perfect.
