Well that's normal. If I was as pretty as you, I wouldn't mind people looking at me either :D

I would hate to be famous. IT must be horrible to be followed around and photographed continually, whether you are looking good/bad. I would like to know that I do well and that I was respected for it; but quietly without any fuss. :oops:

Imagine Lady Diana, Bush... even God would be bored that we talk about him. Many people pray to him, and he wants to have the peace, to be quiet, to sleep, maybe to die.

it's ok. Well in my religion God is Jesus and Jesus is a man wich means he can't be a woman therefore I used He to speak about God. I know in other religion the gender isn't defined but here, where I live we all believe that God is a man...

Exactly! Jesus was a man and we refer to his father (Jesus being the son of God). 8)

I m sorry I have a lot of Christian friends and they belief Jesus is GOD's son and they always don't say "he" they say "it" because they say we don't know GOD's gender so I asked this question I 'm sorry.

oh yeah they're polish but to be honest I like none of them. I think Edyta has an amazing voice but her songs aren't that good and Kayah should retire...she's not the kind of musician I like...

Woh! It is hard to answer simply yes or no. There is reality that people who say no doing everything daily to get richer & more famous. Basically all people want to be recognized. They want to be famous. BUT it is also depend on what situation of the people. The starve in Africa do not want to be famous. What they need are food & essential thing for their life. But you may want that. If you have ever heard about Maslow Pyramid, then you can understand well why people want to be famous? and you may find the answer yourself.

It is true BUT not absolutely. It does not mean the richer is the more famous.

Before making someone famous, think that, by this way, you can put this person in danger.

You put this person a big pression.

If this person become a "model" or a "cliché", there is the threaten of the sterotyp (and/or prejudice).
