There are so many inspiring celebrities – at least, in my opinion. Your mileage may vary, because every person gets inspired by different things. You may even have a different definition of what a celebrity should be – and I want to hear all about it. I think learning about someone else's inspirations can tell you so much about them. So I hope you'll take a look at the inspiring celebrities who mean something to me, and then chime in with your own.
Eminem is without question one of the most inspiring celebrities to me. He's my top pick for several reasons, such as his decidedly dysfunctional beginnings. My childhood was nowhere near as traumatic as Marshall's, but there were some very dysfunctional points. That he's open about it, and proves that you can overcome even the worst beginnings, simply inspires me. I love that he gives back to his community, even when the rest of the world basically gives up Detroit as a total loss. I love that he admits his mistakes and stands by the things he's done wrong. Finally, his music inspires me. Eminem is a street warrior, a brutal poet with a poison tongue and raw talent, and he inspires me creatively in ways I can't even describe.
