If chasing fame means people recognise you in the supermarket and there are photographers constantly trying to take pictures of you in the shower and you end up hidden away in one of those high-walled compounds in Beverley Hills with security patrols, then that ain't for me.
yeah I agree.

i would like to do as most of you, play and quit my day job. Do actual work when the downtime tot he music happens.

But with fame the privacy goes out the window.

Americans are so absorbed with what some celebrity is doing, and that breeds shows full people expressing their sycophantic behavior.
