Simple question. Do you want to be famous/intend to be famous/wish you were famous?
It's not an easy thing to be (obviously) with cameras flashing everywhere etc. but if you can handle the pressure, the annoyingness and so on, I guess it has it's advantages too.....
Your dreams are all out of focus;
Knock you up when you're feeling down.

Hitler was really smart and could have been a good leader but he was kind of a douche to the Jews.

Yeah, sure, why not? I'd end up like Kurt Cobain. Married to some broad and I'd have to kill myself within a few years of my fame, but sure, I'd do it.

I'd rather be semi-famous. Well-known, but not enough to be bugged by paparazzi all the time. I'd like to leave a small mark on the world though, y'know?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

I hope to be successful and with great success usually comes more "fame"

I'd personally rather not be famous but if fame is a by-product of success then it's kind of inevitable.

How on earth would you deserve it? What would entitle you?

I don't want to deserve it. I want to be famous like someone who is on Big Brother then is never off the TV. Then I'll release an album and open a restaurant.

yes...to a certain extent.

I'd be ecstatic with significant underground fame with my band, but wouldn't say no to mainstream success to be quite honest.
#28
Do I want that a simple trip to the beach will turn impossible to me?
Do I want that going to eat a burger will turn impossible to me?
Do I want to go with my family to a field day and be annoyed by blood thirsty papparazzis?
Do I want everyone to know me and worship me?

Hell no.

Pretty much this for me as well. I'd like getting drunk and going on gameshows, that type of thing and it'd probably be easy to get women.

cult fame > fame

fans are more hardcore, not recognised as often, usually live a pretty modest life.
that'd be awesome.

That's infamy, it's completely different. If I wanted to be infamous in real life, I'd just kill someone or become a nonce.

I want to be recognised for something useful, instead of being gay and irritating.

I want to have that level of fame where everyone's like "He sold out" So I could be like "I'll pay you to stop saying that *puts on shades over shades* YEAAAH"

I just like to have a large house in a rural area, where people can't smother me or anything. I wouldn't want to be famous like you see me on TV EVERYDAY (Jonas Brothers FTL) just famous enough that people know me.
