I am.

Side: Yes

Yes, I would. Does this truly require elaboration?

Side: Yes

Well yes. But not for being on Real Housewives Of New Jersey or something like that. I don't want to be famous for the wrong thing. I want to be famous for singing, being inspirational. I want to be famous for making speeches, or doing plays or musicals. I can see why people wouldn't want to be famous. Privacy, education, mostly privacy. I love to have attention though so... Umm I say yes, I would like to be famous.

I want to be famous for doing something good or being talented. I don't want to end up all fame crazy, but it would be cool having people look up to me.

Side: Yes

Sure! I can hear David Bowie singing "Fame" right now. I would love to be famous and rich, too.

Side: Yes

I like having privacy and I wouldn't want to be slandered in tabloid rags for the entertainment of the pond life underclass of society. Also I want to get a good education which is something very few people of my age manage to do while being famous.

Side: No

Fame never brought anything good other than narcissism and arrogance

Your basis for this claim is what, exactly?

Fame can also be a platform of influence, which can be wielded to positive effect. I personally know people who have a relative degree of fame and who use that to share messages and to educate other people on various issues they are passionate about. A number of celebrities use their wealth and influence to benefit charitable causes.

Fame caused Jesus to be crucified

Ghandi was shot

Marthin Luther was assassinated

No matter how good your intention is, there will always be others who will oppose you to death. In fact, the more famous you are, the more you are likely to be killed for it.

You dont need fame to be influential, you just need to make sense.

In todays time, anonymity is possible thanks to technologies such as Tor- an internet browser that would keep you immune from being tracked- which allows journalists and activists to share their raw and unmoderated messages to the world.

I make electronic music. My ideal would be to make enough money from performances and sales to be able to do that full-time. It ain't easy. Some relatively known producers and DJs still get their primary income from a day job. So in order to get what I want I would need some variety of fame. A fanbase that will turn up wherever I play. Folks who will buy tracks instead of pirating.

But I only really want it to go so far. I'm not looking to be a Skrillex or a Hardwell. Just a guy some people like and tell others about. But at low enough levels, my personal life shouldn't change too much. I'd just be busier. And that would be good.

I positively respect this, not that you need my approval. As a fellow artist, I strive for what you have described as my baseline. I personally aspire to a greater degree of fame though because my (art)work is integrally related with social and political change and I see greater fame as a way of widening my scope of influence in disseminating my messages.

Being famous sounds like heaven to most common people right now... including me. Who wouldn't want to be the next Brad Pitt? But once you get used to it, you'll realize how lucky you were in your original spot in life. You'll most definitely want to go back. Take Justin bieber for example. He probably wishes he never became famous in the first place. What a fail -.- Have any of you heard of that story of the prince and the pauper? They switch places, but later realize that they don't belong in the other person's spot. So, everyone!! Stop sulking and be who you are! Don't die and live, because you have to fill in that spot! No one else belongs there except for you. After reading this, if you're still longing for that #1 position in America, I can't stop you. Dream away and be happy while you're asleep.

I do not wish I were famous because it sounds like "heaven"; I recognize that it would have its negatives but for me those would be worth the positives. You also presume that fame necessarily goes hand in hand with fortune, which is not inherently true. Preferring fame over relative anonymity also does not mean I am unhappy with who I am; my position in life affects but does not define me.

Side: Yes

No, I would want to keep my privacy and not talk to many people.

Privacy and fame are not necessarily mutually exclusive. One can become famous through pseudonyms, and regulate access to personal information and frequency/extent of contact accordingly.

Side: Yes

No. I don't the media following me around taking pictures of me naked.

Side: No

I know what you mean because they will see you hugging your brother and say you have gone gay.
