I don't want fame at all. I'll take the $$ without being known at all thanks. Wanting to be famous is another form of insecurity to me- why do people need others approval, and want others to "know" and "like" them? Who cares?! Egotistical/insecure/vain people.

All people care about these days is money though I vote no because it would be hard for all activity

Being famous would be awesome and if I were homeless I could live in my studio

No, being famous would be too hard without money, you would have too many things to do and not enough money. That and I like fancy things.

No way. I would only do it for business opportunities. Who would want a total invasion of their privacy wherever they went?!

A name will sell- you may not get $$ when you become famous- but you will in the future because of your name.

In my opinion, the only thing that makes up for all the hassles famous people are put through... is all the money. Lol. Why would I want people following me around w/cameras & putting me on celebrity gossip news... When I don't get to be rich & live in luxury... at least, that's what I'd do. xD

Twitter fame or YouTube fame? I'd love that. Even if it was for free, just people being my fans would be enough for me.

Fame without fortune? That's like a marriage without sex. No thanks.

I would hope I could use that fame for good

05/24/12 1:29 pm

If your famous in a good way you can have any woman you want...that's gotta be worth something.

05/24/12 12:14 pm

At first I said yes but then a story about George Zimmerman came on Fox News (my dad is a staunch Conservative) and my answer changed REAL quick..if I'm famous & rich, I wanna be unknown...

I actually wouldn't want fame because just look at how paparazzi is. There is little privacy. I'd rather be rich and unknown.

Sure. If I became famous for the right reason. I didn't pump out a sex tape, or ride the coat tails of another celebrity, but did something they impacted the world, or brought the human race closer together. I'd gladly accept fame for a worthy cause with no money, than be famous for nothing.

05/24/12 10:01 am

I started to say no, but then again I would like to be known as an awesome photographer, respected and recognized by the big names in the field.

I am famous for many things among a small circle of friends and family. For example, I make great salsa. People love it and call me to make and send them batches. I like that kind of cheap fame!

The money is the best part of fame. Who wants to be Casey Anthony or OJ Simpson?

No, I'm not an attention-needer... I wouldn't want it even if it did come with the money.

I don't like being the center of attention, so that's a definite no. I'd like it if a good friend became really famous, because I'm very interested to see what it would be like from the other side, but I wouldn't want it for myself.

05/24/12 12:09 am

If i was to get out, remember where we were last year. You said everything about it moved on your career, if you want to go, ill take you back one day. This isnt paris, it isnt london, is not berlin, is not hong kong, not tokyo if you want to go... IT FEELS SO GOOD NO WAY!

I'm not sure I would be famous even if there were a financial gain because of the scrutiny that celebrities are under and the stress it puts on relationships, not to mention the emotional well-being of the celeb. No amount of money is more valuable than happiness and healthy relationships.

jDoe a legacy invested in people will live on. money and fame fade or vaporize. we still talk about Milton Hershey because of the lives he invested in. squeeze people for a buck and kill your legacy.

Depends for what.If its for something good even if there is no financial gain employers will be more lilely to hire you and you will get more respect.You could also get into some places you couldnt go otherwise.

Wouldn't want to be famous - period. Way too fond of my privacy. But would put up with being famous for doing something spectacular - like cure cancer, make first alien contact, discover clean inexhaustible energy source, meet God ... but just to be famous for being famous --- YUK!!!

05/23/12 9:27 pm

No. I'm not an attention whore. If there's no money involved, no thanks.

05/23/12 8:43 pm

Famous people get a lot of money because they need that money to invest it. What a crazy idea, why? because most of them don't get benefits like employer provided health insurance. They have to create their own retirement plan.

fame brings out all the crazies. then you don't have enough money for pepper security? Dead in a week.

05/23/12 8:41 pm

What if I lose my voice or acting skills? What happens then huh? Aww the mainstreamers are shut you down.

05/23/12 8:40 pm

Id rather work for Goldman Sachs as an investment banker and get famous for having a plethora of satisfied clientele and still have financial gains.

Only VERY bad people are famous with no financial gain.

05/23/12 8:39 pm

Are you kidding me? Never! This question fits mainstreamers.

Don't really want to be famous, not like people today are. I'd like to be a well known and respected architect in the future but right now I'm just me.

Fame is a crappy goal. Money is almost as crappy. Excellence is a good goal. If it brings fame and fortune, so be it.

I think it would be fun as long as I'm not famous for something awful. Don't want to be known as "The Green Killer" but I wouldn't mind being famous for doing something commendable w/no monetary gain.

If you have the fame but not the money, you won't be able to afford the bodyguards that fame requires.

Famous for what? I would like to leave this world with a positive legacy and that's independent of money.
