Fandango’s Provocative Question (30 November 2022)

Fandango Provocatively asks:

If you could, would you want to be famous if it meant sacrificing your personal life and privacy? Why or why not?

    Fame? No thank you. The idea of life being under a microscope is too much to sacrifice. That anybody who became a friend might be doing so for their own gain, maybe to sell something to a newspaper. That must warp someone’s ability to relate sensibly to people.

    Being rich, however is a different kettle of fish. A lot of the worries we all have in life (not everything) are financial in origin. Take the cost of living crisis at the moment. Dare I say, you’re probably not going to worry so much about heating your home if you’ve a stash of cash under the bed. It’d be nice just to sidestep money worries.

    “Financial” is not the only source of anxiety, of course, but I just figure… the fewer we have, the better.

    I could quite easily cope with being the billionaire who walks down the street, that nobody recognises.

    The trouble is that rich and famous often go hand in hand.

    1. That is really a hard question to someone who use to be on stage singing, I guess in that field it
      would not be as bad as in some (acting) but you’re right when you become famous you relinquish your right to being a private person. Just the way it is. Take a roll of the dice and see how you want to land. Hard question when you consider that fame usually brings riches, but as
      long as I have enough to live decently I am ok with how it all turned out.
