At some point in our lives, we tell a lie. Whether it was to evade responsibility for our actions, trying to look cooler, or making up an excuse, we’ve all told a lie in one way or another. At the end of the day, it is never a good idea to lie because it destroys your credibility and could negatively impact your friendships, relationships, and even your career. When you’re just a normal person, telling a lie has consequences, but it is eventually forgotten and swept under the rug. But when you’re a celebrity, telling a lie can have astronomical consequences because you have the entire world watching and judging you. And as we know with the Internet, the lies of a famous person don’t go away so easily. Celebrities are certainly under a different standard.
What is worse? Lying to cover up something serious? Or lying over something dumb? It seems that the latter is becoming judged much worse than if there was something higher at stake. The celebrities in this video lied over something so silly that it left us all scratching our heads and wondering exactly why they even bothered. When it all comes down to it, lying is never a good idea. The best thing to do is come clean right away, even if you are a celebrity. While it may cause some controversy, there won’t be as many hurt feelings on the line from lying.
