Is Vertigo a Side-Effect of Celebrity?

Sienna Miller’s really pretty, isn’t she?

But can someone explain to me why, exactly, she must hold on to her friend for dear life as she steps over that concrete… whatever it is?

It’s not just Sienna, of course. Lots and lots of celebs — especially girl celebs — are photographed out all the time, clinging to a handler or friend or signficant other for dear life as they do normal activities like walking down the street. And I know that, on the one hand, we are not, in these pictures, seeing the huge crowd of photoraphers making life way hard for them at that particular moment. But I also am not seeing the Earth tilt suddenly on its axis, or the ground start moving beneath their feet, or any other thing that would warrant such a death-grip on the person closest to them.

So what the hell is going on? Does being female and famous suddenly make it incredibly difficult to walk? Do you get vertigo with your first $10 million-plus paycheck? Is it, like, instant karma or something? “You are famous! Famous beyond words! And you will never have proper balance again!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA.”

Seriously. I want to know.

*The exception being, obviously, if you are wasted. In which case, hang on for dear life!
