Would it wrong of me to propose that sometimes people are put in the spot light by proxy of their greatness, for example if people want to achieve
great things in and of themselves sometimes this will lead to vanity i.e. Einstein, Bill Gates, Ghandi etc.
Now if you are talking purely entertainers/performers from musicians to magicians to dancers to actors, perhaps there is a percentage who want
attention and acclaim and to be in the spotlight more then they love the art and craft and their mastery of it, perhaps it is not so black and white
and there is a mixture of wanting to be a great actor and author and in order to be successful at that you need to become popular, which means
grabbing the attention of a large enough quantity of individuals to allow you to pursue your art. Sure there are exceptions and rules but this is my
take on it at least.
I understand the nature of your inquire though and it is something I have pondered myself. If those sorts of people who depend on so many others to
consume their work and personality to exist, is this a situation where they cannot be satisfied with their own personal gratification from themselves,
they need others to insure their value and worth? I dont think anything about this topic is too cut and dry, I think the examples and real world
activity in practice is across the board and filling gradients and spectrum. Maybe there are 3 elements usually included that have to be considered
1. The skill/craft/form of entertainment/art. 2. Level of fame/attention. 3. Money/fortune.
