    I Was Looking For A List Good Questions To Ask People, As I Was Browsing aound One Particular Question Poped Out At Me.

    If you had to choose, would you rather be rich or famous?

    Personally I'd Rather Be Rich Then Famous, As I'm No The Most Outgoing Guy You'll Ever Meet :eek:

    But Most Of My Friends And My Sister Of All People Say They'd Rather Be Famous

    So I Ask You BHW Which Would You Rather Be? Rich Or Famous?

    Oh And Here's A Link To The Original List Of Questions, Enjoy :rolleyes:

    '...I would have said the two go hand-in-hand, but then thought about it.

    You can be very rich and yet remain known only to a small group of people where your riches are made or come from.

    I have never been a fame-freak and would certainly not want fame for fame's sake like so many talentless performers nowadays.

    So I guess it has to be rich, otherwise I would be famous for being poor, and who the hell wants that?...lol'

    Rich, and no one has to know about it but me.

    Famous has people hunting you down. No privacy.

    Rich, I can live how ever I want to. I can have all the privacy I want and buy my own island.

    Famous does not always mean you are rich. Lot's of famous people blow their wad and are left poor and famous.

    Most rich people are not famous (like business men). The people who are "rich and famous" is a small minority of rich people. Also there are some people who is "famous" but is poor. (like those actors/singers who are one-time hit "wonders")

    I would rather be rich and enjoy my life than famous. I don't need stalkers following me.
    Anyway once you're rich you can always pay your way to fame if you want it so bad (A example is Paris Hilton)

    I don't find Paris Hilton "hot", I think she has the looks of a ordinary-looking girl that just happens to be decorated with make-up, money, and jewelry. If those 3 things are taken away I doubt there would be as many people saying she's hot.

    I don't think i'd ever want to be famous on my actual name. If anything i'd be an alias like "The Edge" or "The Rock" or "The Blob". The prefix 'The' would be mandatory and essential for my fame. :rolleyes:

    I'd choose famous. Heres why:

    Famous people can leverage their "fame" to make fortunes. They get endorsement deals, book deals, royalties etc, with very little effort. Regular rich people do not. They have to work harder to achieve the same thing.

    If your just rich no one knows about you, and if you somehow spend all your money, you have nothing to fall back on.

    Famous people who go broke (or even go crazy) can easily make more money, and can easily get high-paying work as long as they are still relatively popular. Example: Britney spears and micheal jackson. Both of them are jacked up and going broke. But if either of them went on tour they'd easily pull in millions of dollars.

    Plus if yur a guy its all the free pussy you could ever want. Being famous really kicks ass.

    I'd rather be rich than famous without a doubt. With fame comes a whole truckload of horse shit I simply do not wish to be associated with. I do not want people clamoring around me to take photos. I do not want to be written about in tabloids or other menial entertainment facets. I do not want my every move being scrutinized and critiqued. I do not want to be adored or idolized by people who don't even know me. Therefore, give me the dough, and out of the spotlight I will go.

    Damn fame. I just want the money. I could be VERY content with not being know at all and with the money, I could make myself known to the those that I wished.

    I Think It Boils Down To The Fact That We All Want To Be Remembered.

    Whether You Believe In An After Life Or Not, We All Want To Make A Impact On This World So That After We're Gone, People Will Remember Us.

    So I'm Thinking That When It Comes To Being Famous, Even With All It's Problems And Downsides, It Gives Those Who Have It A Better Shot At Leaving A Legacy Behind.

    Maybe That's What Makes It Worth It....That And The Free @$$ :p
