HOUSTON, TX, September 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jose Canseco gives an insider point of view of what it's like to be a sports superstar and celebrity.
In his latest, exciting video blog for Steroid.com, Jose Canseco candidly discusses the insider view of what it was like for him to become famous as a baseball superstar. With a personal touch and total vulnerability, Canseco discusses his surprised emotional state of being called up to the majors from the AAA league...
"I was in shock. I was...a nineteen year old kid. I was extremely nervous...and basically in shock to be called up to the actual major leagues. You play in the minor leagues but you really don't think you have the ability but when you are called up, it's a very scary thing."
Answering fan questions with a raw and uncensored honesty, Canseco also reveals what it was like to come into significant money after growing up poor, dealing with national media exposure, the newfound affections of lovely women, and invasions to his personal privacy. Carefully detailing both the positives and the negatives of his celebrity status, Canseco offers a cautionary tale to his viewers...
"If you're famous, you lose your public life. Your privacy is completely and utterly gone. And then people will use you as a target. The same people that put you on a pedestal...these are the same people that at any point in time are looking to shoot you, knock you down and drag you through the mud as much as possible."
Canseco concludes his intriguing revelation about fame with the promise that he will continue to bring fresh, new and exclusive information about sports, fame, success and failure to his audience at Steroid.com.
