Hi Dark, What you say makes perfect sense. I think the attitude you just describe could describe a number of Aristocratic families in the United States as well. Not to mention big name celebrities who think they are better than anyone else because he or she is a big name acter, actress, musician, or athlete. Some of them can be quite unplesent to be around socially I've heard.
For instance, when Britney Spears came out in the late 90's she marketed herself as a sort of teenage schoolgirl pop star. Dressed up in a nice black skirt, white blouse, and black knee high stockings for the album cover, and the two poneytails. Nice decent photo of her, and a lot of teenage girls worshipped her. In reality time has proven to show that Britney Spears is a complete git. There has been one news story after another of the crazy/stupid things the woman has done. Got drunk and threw beer bottles at the police when they came to take her kids to visit their dad. Got caught driving with a baby on her lap without it being properly secured in a infant car seat. In and out of drug rehab multiple times. Her new tatoo make over where she looks like street trash rather than the clean teenage pop star image she presented in the 90's. Then, of course, her former husband did give an interview to some magazine or other about his relationship with Britney and he basically said she was a witch. She had a very nasty attitude about a lot of things. So what's a person to say about all that? Answer, not much. Probably not someone I'd like to meet in person based on what I've heard. She is someone who has let fame and fortune go to her head. Maybe in the beginning she was what she claimed to be, but not now. Cheers!
