EXCLUSIVE: B-Day girl Beyonce and Jay Z reveal beach bodies as they splash out for her 32nd birthday on champagne cruise
Other people are more aware of you so you start to see yourself through the eyes of others, to become objectively self-aware. Supporting the notion that success makes people more self-conscious, professor Mark Schaller found that both Kurt Cobain and Cole Porter were more likely to use the first-person singular pronoun in their songs after they became successful. Jay Z reveals his self- consciousness when he acknowledges how he loves fame and how high he is on it, despite his struggles. I know nobody to blame, Kurt Cobain. I did it to myself he raps in the song. He also shows self-consciousness when he adopts the voice of a younger version of himself telling the successful Jay Z to get off his high horse and appreciate what hes got. The third downside of success is that it can make you egotistical. A study of celebrity athletes found, for example, that as they become more successful, star college basketball players go through a process of self-aggrandizement. Their successful self takes over their entire personality. As the authors of the study write, The gloried self is a greedy self, seeking to ascend in importance and to cast aside other self-dimensions as it grows. It is an intoxicating and riveting self, which overpowers other aspects of the individual and seeks increasing reinforcement to fuel its growth. Jay Z reveals the struggle of staying himself in the final verse of the song, where he reminds himself hes Still that nigga. In other domains, ego can take hold as well. People who get promoted run the risk of having their success go to their head and cloud their judgment.
