Relationships are hard and relationships with artistes are harder. When it comes to dating, artistes mostly are completely off limits. It is like a life chore, you’d have to put up with a lot of things and fame doesn’t help at all.
Below are some reasons you do not want to date an artiste…
- They love music more than they love you
Music is the first love. If they had to choose, they will pick their art over you. When it’s time to work on a new project, they’d have no time for you, all attention will be directed towards the project and you seize to exist. You only come back into existence after the project is done.
- They get too much sexual attention
Whether he/she is popular or not so popular, artistes tend to get a lot of sexual attention just because of their art. So, imagine they were known, attention coming from every angle. Not just a normal attention but sexual attention. Everyone wants to s**g them. You’ll have to deal with that.
- You never stop travelling
Dating an atiste means putting your life on hold and travelling a lot with your partner. With the kind of attention they get, you never want to leave their side because then, you’d be worried sick about who they are with, what they are doing, is anyone making a move on them, are they involved in groupies and so on… So, travelling never stops.
- Drugs and alcohol
At some point in the life of an artiste, they become really good friends with alcohol or drugs. With the pressure and tension all around them, they try to find a getaway and drugs and alcohol becomes the go to.
- You will most likely live a public life
When you are dating a popular artiste, it can be totally annoying because everyone, from fans to the press, to everyone/ everything you can think of is all up in your business. It is almost difficult to have a private life while dating an artiste.
