Lupita Nyong’o Paying the Price of Fame?

I’m sure there are too many perks to count as a result of becoming a household name like Lupita Nyong’o has become seemingly overnight. But there is a downside. The sudden invasion of privacy and space can be overwhelming. In an interview last month with New York Magazine, Lupita shared her feelings on her quick rise to stardom. “I’ve been in a bubble. I haven’t been out much. I haven’t gotten used to being recognized…“There are so many highlights that are no longer highlights,” “I’m living a very swollen life.” That interview was before last week’s Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actress. Since then she has been verbally attacked on Twitter, rumored to be dating several different men and “spotted” at every turn. Lupita appears to be an intelligent and gracious woman with tough skin. Hopefully she will figure it all out without losing the joy that comes with accomplishment and being able to do what you enjoy each day. Wishing you continued success Lupita…without the need for a bubble lol
