I hang with a few celebrities from time to time, mainly rappers, and I can definitly say that most of them are not in it for the fame, they're in it
for the money. The fame just happens to be a byproduct because...in order to sell a million records, a million people have to know who you are. Some
can deal with fame better than others. Its really all about money either way you look at it. The do nothing celebrities have so much money already
that the media focuses on them because of it, or because they buy their fame. And yeah, some of them thrive on it, i.e. Paris Hilton and some can't
stand the byproduct of it, i.e. Britney Spears.
However I can tell you that in the music business, the fame and money is well deserved and takes hard work to get. It is by no means easy, and the
people that are on top really deserve to be there and have worked very hard to get there, regardless of whether or not you think they suck or you
think they don't deserve it. And if, as an average consumer, you don't understand this, its not your fault, you just haven't experienced it.
Otherwise, why isn't everyone rich and famous? You really have to be on top of your business to even make it in the industry. Either that or have
an assload of money to throw around.
