I think it is largely competition and insecurity. I posted some pictures of me at 27 and a couple pictures thirty years later at 57. Back in the day beautiful girls would freaking through themselves at me contstantly. As I got into my later 30's or early 40's it was just different and I was like what the F@#$ happened? You kind of realize that you are not 27 anymore and that that train has sailed. Youth is not eternal and time catches up with us all. In our culture women have to compete with 20 year old air brushed models on every magizine cover and other unrealistic examples of beauty. Guys can be as vain as women, but it is tougher for women because their worth or "sexual value" is largely based on apperance. When time starts catching up with them and younger prettier girls start getting all the attention they had always been used to receiving it can really screw with their head, confidence and self esteem. Hence some desperate and most often horribly regretful decisions to go under the knife in an attempt to turn back the hands of time.I think it's a bit of an illness for some. Especially the ones that made it big on looks/sex appeal.
You got two choices. Either stop attending all the high profile events or keep putting yourself
out there under the dozens of flashing bulbs.
And then there's the competition factor. It's gotta be like body-builders and roids.
If you don't do it you simply fall behind the pack.
Thank God for the rare ones who don't go completely nuts with it.
The Queen imo
