Go to (someone's) head

If something goes to your head, it makes you become arrogant or conceited (You have a high opinion of yourself and think of yourself as better than others). In this comic strip, flying first class is going to the rat’s head.

1. Do you think it’s possible to become rich and famous and not let it go to your head? Would it be possible to keep your feet on the ground? 

2. As the highest paid actor in TV series, Charlie Sheen, the star of “Two and a half men” let his fame and success go to his head, saying such things as, “I am special and I will never be one of you”… or could it just be the drugs that have gone to his head?

3. In the movie based on Marvel Comics’ “Thor” (the god of thunder), immortality and the power Thor had with his hammer went to his head until he was cast down to earth and humbled. 

4. In many movies about the mafia we usually see how when someone rises in power it goes to their head and they come to believe that they are untouchable.

5. If you become really successful, don’t let it go to your head. Continue to “do for others what you would like them to do for you”.

  1. Does anyone have any examples of famous people, whether diplomats or celebrities who you think have let things go to their head?
