Not at all. I want to live a life of anonymity and die quietly.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/10 - 9:53:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I do want to be somewhat famous (as an author, ideally)

But not to the point where I have no privacy.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/10 - 10:17:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, why would I want to be followed around and have messed up stories about me that aren't true... even if they are I don't want everyone to know it...

I would like to be famous, but famous for doing what? Is the question.....................
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 10/20/10 - 1:21:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
possibly

if i had to choose between rich & famous, though, i'd choose the former
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 10/20/10 - 1:23:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not the slightest.

Not as in Britney Spears-famous, but being recognized internationally for the music I make would be cool. It's a pretty sweet deal, I could be the most famous melo-death metal drummer alive, and noone would bat an eyelid my way anyhow.

not really, but my career goal of becoming a movie director would make me famous, so in a sense yes, because I want my movies to be successful, but intensionally no.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 10/20/10 - 6:08:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Famous, no. Rich, yes.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 10/20/10 - 10:25:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not anymore, I always wanted to do something that would make me well-known. I might still achieve it as i'm looking into doing my football coaching badges so maybe i'll be managing a top europe football club... not that i'm setting my sites high.

rich - yes
famous - no

I imagine that everyone desires some level of notoriety and recognition at some point in their lives. Well, I imagine we want recognition almost all the time, but I'd say it borders on a desire for fame at at least some point in life.

Some may always desire it. For those of us who eventually get over it, I bet there are two distinct categories: those of us who truly grow comfortable w/ our smaller circles and don't need the ego-stroking glory that comes w/ fame, and those of us who would take it in a heartbeat but who are essentially sour-graping it, claiming we're so above such self-centered interests. I'm not sure which category I fit into.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 10/21/10 - 5:57:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
famous, no.
rich, yes.
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 10/21/10 - 11:22:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not really. It would be fun for a while- but I think I would get over the prying media pretty fast.

Not like JustinBieber-famous, but the sort of famous that gets your name recognized. But I'm not aiming for a sort of career with music, unless you'd call poetry music.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 11/5/10 - 1:55:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I'd like the money that comes with being famous, but I don't want the rest.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 11/5/10 - 1:57:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm happy to be neither rich nor famous
10 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/6/11 - 6:23:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like for my name to be famous but not my face.

I want to be a well known author. Millions of people know the name J.K. Rowling but how many people would actually recognize her on the street?
10 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 1/8/11 - 1:43:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'll agree with the people who want to be authors and be rich, but not hounded by the media.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/17/11 - 1:13:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 2/3/12 - 5:36:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't want to be famous. I like my privacy too much.
8 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 2/13/13 - 3:30:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have privacy, so bring me fame and bacon.
8 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 2/13/13 - 4:50:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to be recognisable without people wanting to seek me out. Like a stand-up comedian, I guess. But that's just so I can go around and give people stories to tell a la Bill Murray, so I don't really want to be famous.
8 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 2/13/13 - 5:35:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't like to draw attention, so no. Not for me.
8 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 2/14/13 - 9:16:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Honestly, that would be a nightmare.
