Recently, an 11-year old girl got some Internet notoriety for her foul mouth and highly provocative language on an online video chatting site. During one of these recorded chats, when someone calls her a lewd name, she replies, "Anything for fame."
That idea simply never made sense to me. And this is coming from a guy who, from the age of 8, always assumed he would BE famous one day.
I think the difference is simply that I wanted to achieve something the fame would arise from. I want to be the guy who takes the suck out of Christian music
. I want to be the guy who makes people re-question the blind authority we give our leaders
. I want to write things that make people question the way they live
The idea of getting to be famous without earning it doesn't seem fun.
