Music for the Article
So you've got lots of money, you've got daddy wrapped around your finger, and you're prettier than everyone you know. You've got all you need to assert your superiority and walk all over the little people in your midst, knowing that you're better than anyone else and if you get into real trouble, daddy's money will get you out of it, right?
Not you! Just because you're pretty, popular, and rich doesn't mean you have the right to belittle people, and you know it! Maybe one of those "little people" is your best friend, or maybe you fell in love with some poor kid, or your parents or teachers simply brought you up right. Whatever the reason, you're one of the sweetest people around!
The Spoiled Sweet character is a pretty, rich girl (or guy) who has plenty of potential to be spoiled, but instead of being mean to everyone, she's as nice as can be, and she deserves that popularity. She's still spoiled, somewhat shallow, maybe even selfish (and yes, prone to attitude), but when it comes right down to it she's a loyal friend and doesn't use her money or popularity as an excuse to treat everyone like garbage - though she is often Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense and makes errors out of ignorance. She can fit in with the Dumb Blonde stereotype, or she can be smart in an Odd Lawyer type of situation. She's typically an equal opportunity friend, hanging out with the popular crowd and the misfits alike. She'll sometimes be paired up with Alpha Bitch or a group thereof as the one nice girl in their midst, or perhaps form a dyad with the female protagonist in a Tomboy and Girly Girl pair. As shallow as she is, she'll often be the one to hook up with a guy who would never ever be expected to land such a beautiful girl.
When faced with the need to do some kind of hands on work, (a common way to develop this character) something most of us do naturally, they might actually get excited about the opportunity, having lived in a Gilded Cage (although typically a gilded cage that they enjoy to some extent). "I always wanted to try this!" If she succeeds she will be very proud of herself - not in a haughty way but in that "Hey, I did a thing!" way. Sometimes she just thinks she succeeded and the more competent people are struggling to fix whatever she messed up. But she's just so happy and sincere about wanting to help, nobody can break her heart and tell her that she just needs to stay out of the way.
There a lot of people like this in real life actually.
