Are people who crave fame, insane?

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.

I used to want to be famous and I can tell you it was more about having people worship me than anything. I had a complex growing up and loved attention. That being said, I think everyone is a little crazy but for different reasons.

Everyone is insane or crazy for different reasons. I like to consider fame chasers ones who wear their crazy on their sleeve. I would love to have the wealth of some of these people but I wouldn't want to be famous.

I kinda still want to be famous, but not famous as in paparrazi following me all the dang time. No, I wanna be famous enough people go "Who? OH him, yea he come out with somethin new?" and buy it.

I guess maybe I just wanna be rich.
Gonna make it one day, believe me.
