We all want to feel special from time to time. It’s easy to watch a talk show or a YouTube video and wish we could live the life of our favourite celebrities, and though the chances are that you’ll never enjoy their fame or fortune, it’s certainly possible to feel a million dollars for a little while. Below, we’ve put together five great ways to feel like a celebrity from home…
Perform your favourite songs
Head over to Spotify and create a playlist of your favourite songs. Once you’ve got 10-15, pop in your AirPods, turn off the lights, and perform a concert from the comfort of your living room. You can pretend that you’re singing to thousands of adoring fans and have some fun dancing in the process. The best part? You can burn up to 800 calories an hour doing it!
Dress up for a pretend awards show
Celebrities love to get dolled up for awards shows like the Grammys and Oscars, so why not do the same and enjoy an evening watching a made-up film premiere? Buy a new suit or dress, experiment with makeup, have your hair done, and make some delicious snacks or order a takeaway to enjoy with your family. Themed nights like these are not only great fun, but they’re a relatively inexpensive way to get together and make memories with loved ones.
Become the king of the casino
“I wanna hold ‘em like they do in Texas, please,” sings Lady Gaga on her hit single Poker Face. You might not have the funds or spare time to jet off to Las Vegas to experience the real casino experience at locations such as Caesars Palace and the Bellagio, but you can still enjoy a flutter from the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re into blackjack, slots, or roulette, there are lots of websites that you can visit to have some fun, and even if you’ve triggered GamStop in the UK, there are websites to try.

Get your friends to interview you
Celebrities are often interviewed on radio stations and podcasts about their lives and tips on looking their best. If you’re in the mood for some fun role play, get your friend to FaceTime you and you can pretend to be a star. They can conduct a pretend interview and you’ll have lots of giggles on the way. Make a recording of your interview to listen back to when you’re done – the chances are that you’ll want to relive the experience in a couple of year’s time!
Create a YouTube channel
Finally, consider a piece to camera by creating your own YouTube channel where you can share updates on your life and perhaps even become a celebrity one day. YouTubers such as Jeffree Star earn as much as $15 million per year from advertising on the platform – that’s without sponsorship, brand deals, and other business opportunities. David Dobrik, who has 18 million subscribers, earned $15.5 million last year, and nine-year-old Ryan Kaji, with 41.7 million subscribers, earned an eye-watering $29 million. That’s a truly impressive salary!
