    life in a goldfish bowl?rocker?

    Paris Hilton has always been keen on living life in a goldfish bowl. But surely this is taking things a little bit too far.


    The heiress and her rocker boyfriend Benji Madden's car appears to be doubling as a mobile home, as the back seat of the Cadillac was littered with the detritus of the couple's life.
    Q1: living life in a goldfish bowl = a life without any privacy, show up her life?

    Is the phrase slang or an idiom?

    Q2: rocker = rock-and-roll star?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    "To live ones life in a gold fish bowl". you have the meanind right it is an idiom.

    "Rocker". in this phrase is "Rock and Roller" you are right.
