Would you like to be famous?
Answer from the forum moderator:
I personally would never want to be famous! I am not a “like it in the spotlight” kind of person. I am quite happy to make friends and interact on a one on one basis but all eyes on me is not at all where I feel most comfortable! When I was in high school I hated those presentations teachers love so much! It was torture to stand at the front of the class with a bright red face, watery eyes and shaky voice!
For myself, I would like to be famous but on my own terms. Not everyone famous is an actor or actress with their face all over the media. I’d be famous for something I did, like writing a series of great books. But be reclusive. Give the odd interview when my new book comes out. If you aren’t pushing yourself in the spotlight you won’t get as noticed. Writers can be famous and yet not have photos of their cellulite published in gossip rucking magazines.
How about you? Do you want to be famous? Do you think you could handle full on fame with flash bulbs popping out of the woodwork at you? Or do you see yourself having a quiet sort of fame? Famous and yet modest and quiet in the background.
