This week Fandango asks;
If you could, would you want to be famous if it meant sacrificing your personal life and privacy? Why or why not?
I think most sane people would answer no to this offer.
First the pros;
Being famous means that everyone knows your name, well almost!
They may treat you like a celebrity and make concessions for you.
It will give your ego a boost to be recognized by people and them wanting to take selfies with you.
You’ll be invited to parties, galas, first-night events, etc
And perhaps with fame, you’ll also get money, as in rich and famous.
Everyone will know who you are and your every movement, action and word will be judged by them.
Privacy will be a long-forgotten dream.
The number of people who like/loves you may be less than those who hate/dislike you.
You’ll be so busy that you wouldn’t have time for yourself, your family, or your friends. Fame means being everywhere, at the same time.
And when the fame starts to fade with time or changing circumstances, you will feel down and dejected.
Do who will choose fame over a fulfilling life where you can be yourself.
