I was talking with my brother the other day and we both came to the conclusion that people who chase fame or are willingly famous have some kind of mental issue. When you see the crap they go though, the stress, being under a constant spotlight, lack of privacy... You would have to be nuts to want all that. You can be wealthy or rich without being famous just like you can be broke as dirt and be famous.
I would say you have to at least be participial insane to want it. Most of those people you see in magazines, in movies, on TV shows.. They may seem happy on the surface but they are typically more miserable than average people. Money doesn't buy happiness. It is only a temporary illusion of happiness.
I don't think everyone is insane but I would imagine some of them are. Being famous is stressful and not many people who even want fame can handle the stress. A lot of famous people end up disappearing and leave it to pursue something where they aren't in a constant spotlight.
