Isn’t this true for all of us though?
We want people to pay attention to us when the benefits outweigh the costs.
And we want people to leave us alone when that’s reversed.
It’s human nature – no foul there Steve – I get it.
Time has helped me achieve peace with celebrity. At first I was not famous enough, then I was too famous, now I am famous just right. Oh yes, I have heard the argument that celebrities want fame when it’s useful and don’t when it’s not. That argument is absolutely true.
