Beyonce Knowles Visited A Drug Rehab Facilty To Prepare For Her New Film Role

Beyonce Knowles visited rehab to prepare for her role in the new film "Cadillac Records."

The singer-and-actress visited a treatment clinic for people suffering from addiction to learn about the drug problems experienced by U.S. soul singer Etta James, who Beyonce portrays in the movie.
Beyonce, 27, said: "I've never tried drugs in my life, so I didn't know about it all. I learned a lot about myself."
Etta, now 70, became a music sensation in the 50s and 60s, and is said to have been exposed to substance abuse from an early age after growing up in the spotlight.
And Beyonce admits her preparation for the part also had a massive influence on her new album "I am... Sasha Fierce."
The "Bootylicious" singer explained: "It changed my art. It changed my way of looking at everything, my approach to the songs I chose and the way I sang."
"Before, I was still really insecure and scared and now I have the confidence. It was like I had gone through therapy to something. I felt like a whole new woman, ready to reveal me. The real me."
Meanwhile, Beyonce was joined by a leotard-clad Justin Timberlake on stage on Saturday.
The pop pair performed a version of her track "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)" on TV show "Saturday Night Live" - and Justin parodied the song's video by throwing some comical dance moves.
Beyonce also sung another version of the track with real female backing dancers and her latest single "If I Were a Boy."

Drug Rehab Celebrities and the Media

The media make celebrities, well, celebrities. With the fame and adoration comes potential controversy and public rejection. And just like many millions of people in the world, celebrities can succumb to drug addiction. Here’s my general take on celebrities with an addiction, drug rehab, and the media’s role in all of it.
Alcohol Arrests and DUI Have Different Affects On Celebrities Public Status
For some celebrities, a drug addiction or trip to drug rehab seems to make them more raw, deep, or edgy. A star who might seem too nice or “fluffy” somehow has substance to them once we realize they have big personal issues. Age and career status can also have opposing effects. A young male movie star charged with a DUI may look tougher (like Shia LaBeouf), but an older actor with an established career might appear more disheveled and in decline.
Take Mel Gibson and his alcohol problems in the last few years. He had a DUI and some video footage rather unbecoming of a popular sex symbol actor with many accolades. Instead of aging gracefully into his older years, Mel has quickly appeared past his prime. Since the time of his DUI controversy, he has hardly been in the mainstream of movies either as a director or as an actor.
Public Scrutiny About Drug Rehab And Drug Addiction
Are we supposed to feel sorry that celebrities have the intrusion of the paparazzi and the interest of millions of fans? Well, that does come with the territory. Celebrities are often paid well and get the perks to balance out the inconveniences. But when it comes to deeply human problems like drug rehab, addiction, or mental illness, a high level of scrutiny by others is about the last thing any person (famous or not) really wants.
Would Britney Spears have busted out that window with an umbrella a few years ago if she were dealing with both her mental health problems AND her public image? Did that push her over the edge in a way that a private person wouldn’t have? That’s hard to say. People with drug addiction and mental illness can do some odd attention-grabbing things regardless of celebrity status.
Media Good or Bad For People Needing Drug Rehab
The media will do whatever benefits the media the most. Really, it’s not about protecting Britney’s or Lindsey’s or Mel’s best interests. If that were true, we might not hear so much about their problems unless they came forward on their own. The media can create whatever sensationalism they want to elicit pity, disgust, sympathy, praise, inspiration, or whatever they need to keep their media machine turning. So does that make the media completely evil? No, not necessarily.
While the sensationalism is sometimes hard to swallow (or believe), watching a very public person go through a human struggle can be a positive and even liberating for someone else. They might identify with the celebrity and see their trip to drug rehab as inspiring, an example they could follow. They might think, “If that seemingly perfect person can have a drug problem like me, maybe I’m not so strange for having a drug problem. Maybe I could give drug rehab a shot, too.”
Gather Your Courage And Go To Drug Rehab
If you need to go to drug rehab and you’ve seen celebrities do it, you might be wondering if you can take that step. It’s not an easy thing for anyone, even for people who could go to any drug rehab in the world. When it comes right down to it, drug rehab takes human courage. And courage like that is a sign of strength and hope for the a healthier life.

Another Celebrity in Rehab

Actress Kirsten Dunst has checked in to rehab and is also apparently involved in a rehab romance. It is not known who this mystery man is but relationships while in drug and alcohol rehab is never a good idea. There are multiple reason why, but the most important are because the addict needs to focus on herself. Part of any successful rehab program requires that the addict do self-realization activities in order for that person to understand why he or she started using drugs and/or alcohol. When a person’s attention is focused on someone else, there is little time left for the all-important self-reflection.
Another reason why a person in rehab should not be involved in a rehab romance is because when the relationship in question turns sour, a relapse could, and often is, triggered. Not only is the addict not making recovery the priority, he or she hides the ugly side of addiction. It is human nature to show a more favorable side when starting a new relationship. This is normally innocent but admitting the negative sides of oneself is crucial for any shot at sobriety once outside of treatment.

Celebs in Rehab

Rehab was a very popular spot for celebrities over the course of 2007. From Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan to John Goodman and "Miss America" Tara Connor, it seemed like more stars were seeking help than ever before (or society has been paying much more attention). It is no surprise that TV executives have decided to capitalize on the "Rehab Craze" by putting out a show full of B-List celebrities trying to get sober.

At first "Celebrity Rehab", which appears on Thursday evenings on VH1, was thought to be a show of little substance bordering on the offensive, but it is far from that. The show gives us a no-holds-bar look at various celebrities using drugs, detoxing and reaching for recovery with the help of Dr. Drew Pinsky and his Pasadena Recovery Center.
"I don't know how to stop drinking," adult film star Mary Carey tells Pinsky in one of the many one-on-one interviews that are a staple of the show.
