It takes a lot to make it big in Hollywood. Despite what the public sees, behind the scenes most celebrities have spent years and a ton of energy trying to “make it.” A lot of people set out to make it in the music or the film industry, but only a tiny percentage ever actually make it. The old saying of “it’s who you know” is definitely true, but being in the right place at the right time has a lot to do with it, too. So, landing on those highly coveted “up and coming” lists can be a huge deal for those who were virtually unknown yesterday in being in high demand tomorrow.
Being thrust to stardom overnight is a dream for most struggling celebrities. But it doesn’t come without consequence. Going from living a normal life to being in the public eye and followed by the media and paparazzi, having every word dissected, takes a lot of getting used to. When it comes out of nowhere, the chances for slip ups can be much higher for most people. Overnight celebrity also comes with double-edged sword of oversaturation. Celebrities work their entire careers to get their faces and voices out there. But sometimes they’re out there so much and so often, they become their own downfall, with people becoming quickly sick of them. Here is a list of the 10 up and coming celebrities that we’re already sick of hearing about, proving that being a celebrity can be just as much a blessing as it is a curse.
When Lorde first hit the pop charts with her debut single Royals, she skyrocketed to fame. Touted as the new face of music at just 16 years old, she was praised and saw instant popularity. She even won a Grammy. But, it didn’t take very long for people to start getting sick of being told to wave their hands up in the air, so there. For starters, her songs, although well written and original, bear a ton of similarities and begin to blend together. And as she became increasingly over-saturated on the radio, there was no escaping her. Then she began using her popularity as a platform to voice her opinions on being a feminist and beauty standards in society. The singer-songwriter said, “Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t’ think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s f---king bulls---t.”

The Kardashian family has been oversaturated for a few years now. But younger sister Kylie Jenner has just begun making a name for herself outside of the shadow of her big sisters. But that name hasn’t come without a hefty load of criticism. Coming from a long line of narcissism, it’s definitely no surprise that Jenner loves taking pictures of herself for her Instagram and Twitter accounts. But that doesn’t make it any less annoying to her critics. Even more annoying is that she has been accused of putting a large dose of Photoshop on those pictures, completely altering the way that she looks. And despite the fact that her face is considerably and very visibly different than it used to be, including lips that are at least three times their original size, Jenner denies making any changes to her appearance. She took to her Twitter to let everyone know how annoyed she was by the talk of her appearance stating, “How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao,” she Tweeted. “Let’s get our lives together guys and talk about some important s**t. Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.” But with how many pictures she takes of her lips front and center, it seems as though she’s not the least bit bored by it, making everyone wish she would go back to being the sister no one talked about.
