  I’ve always wanted to be a manager of movie stars or singers.


  First of all, I can make truckloads of money. I heard, I can get half the money my celebrity makes. That’s a huge amount of money, if you think about it. I mean, they can make more money than the rest of ordinary people do in a lifetime by just making a commercial. And some singers can also make a fortune by holding a concert. So the payment of being a manager is awesome.


  Also, when my singer goes on tours or my actor needs to make a movie in a foreign country, I can travel around the world with him or her. I get to see exotic views and try tasty and authentic local food. Just the thought of it could make me pumped.


  The best part is, I get to meet other celebrities in show business. I can dress up and go to award ceremonies with my stars, which must be fun.


  Plus, it’s easier to know those celebrities’ gossips and the inside stories. I know it sounds like I’m spying, but I really want to know the truth. You know, what’s on the news about those celebrities are not always true, like who’s dating whom or who’s having an affair.


  So that’s why it’s my dream job.
