Now, at the threshold of her adult life-journey, she finds the goal of achieving some form of "normal" just as elusive as ever. Businesses want her for the novelty of having a celebrity on their payroll, gossip tabloids want to publicize every second of her activities, the privater the better. How does she fit in?
