When I heard about Fabian Romero and his losing fame, I felt sad. He was there at the top enjoying all things that he could possibly enjoy but he became abusive. All his money and fame have been turned to nothing and I couldn't be more sad about that. What happen to him should be a lesson to our artists that life may be good now, but you can also go own in an instant! Always be grateful and look at where you are right now.
