I've been listening to Lupe Fiasco a lot lately. His song "superstar" made me think about being famous.
"If you are what you say you area superstar then have no fear the crowd is here and the lights are on and they want a show oh oh oh oh yeah "

I don't ever want to be famous. Being adored by people that don't know you seems shallow and dissatisfying. Unless of course the adoration is based on merit. But even then what does it matter if strangers worship you but you don't have loved ones. My main thing is that I want to be viewed as a shining bright star by those I love. I want those close to me to want to be near me. I want to have children that think the world of me. I know I have a long way to go before I ever reach "star" status and maybe I won't ever receive that recognition from the people I care about but it's something to work towards.
